    Change this cheap design

    I have had two iPhones and a MacBook your cheap charger designs cost more money than it's worth when I constantly have to shell out 20-80 dollars each time one breaks which is often. You can put a fingerprint scanner into a phone, you can create quality accessories for your phone. It's a consistent problem that we face with all your cheaply made chargers and even headphones. It's the least you can do if you're going to make your phones incompatible with all other brands of chargers. Seriously is turning me off from apple products when you don't even try anymore. Hardly quality for a phone that retails for over $600.

    This cord is a scam!

    I have purchased TWO of these cords in the past 6months and I want my money back. The cord bends at the base of my iPhone and will no longer charge my phone. This is very inconvenient.

    Just bought 3rd cable, these cables are garbage.

    Never had a problem with the old cables on iPods, or old phones but these new cables are so cheap. They keep shorting and falling apart.

    Worst Apple product ever

    I really love my iPhone 5 and my iPad 4th generation, and they do charge faster than the old 3G/4S iphones, but the quality of this cable is terrible! All 3 cables for my iphone, iPad, and my daughter's iphone broke with just moderate use in a very short amount of time...within a month or so. For two of them, the wires became exposed by the lightning end, and for the third one, it looks like it shorted out, as it looks slightly brown (burned?) at the end. Not only that, but 2 other "Apple certified" brands of lightning cables that I've purchased have also had the wires exposed and stopped working. I'm trying another brand now but hoping for better results. It's so frustrating that am seriously considering jumping to the Android ship...just because of stupid, inferior cables! Apple, fix this cable situation or you will pay for it in lost customers!

    Poor quality

    The quality of these cables is extremely poor, especially when considering the substantial price charged for them. Three cables have gone bad in less than one year. One of them burned and melted the insulation by the Lightning connector.

    About to be on my 3rd cord in 1 year

    This cord is the absolute worst. Within one year I am about to be on my 3rd cable and will not be purchasing this one. The same thing has happened where the cord wires become exposed and stop working. This is a huge problem, as I thought that buying the cord from apple would be the best quality but obviously that is not the case.

    On my third cable in 1 and 1/2 years

    I never had to replace my cable with the iPhone 4. And I had it for 2 years. This time around, not so much! The first 2 broke in the same manner. The plastic on the cord breaks, exposing the wires, right at the lightening adapter. Eventually, wires start tearing off and shorting out. For a while it still works, but it has to be in a certain position to keep charging, otherwise, it goes in and out, and vibrates every time you move it. I did have it taped up for a while, but that did not last long. Eventually it will stop working. The first time, I had to make a mad dash to the store before it closed that night because it is my only phone and only cord! Hoping this will be my last cable purchase before an upgrade, and with that upgrade comes a better cable! So frustrating!

    Horrible Product

    I, like many other it seems, am now on cable number 2 after 6 months of having the phone. This cable lasted half the time of the original!

    I don't understand why I should pay $30 for an Apple cable that breaks, when friends who have purchased 'lesser quality' imitations still have them going strong?!

    HORRIBLE!

    I think I am going to end up broke with these chargers. I am currently on my fifth one and the only reason it's working is because I'm holding it together with electrical tape. It's crazy how cheap these cables are made but we have to pay 20 dollars for it. Apple needs to read all these comments and fix this problem asap.

    Dreadful Cable

    I have an iPhone 5 and my daughter an iTouch both use lightning cables. Both have stopped working. Why of Why Apple do you make such poor accessories. We pay all this money and it's the little things that let you down. I am now having to buy 2 more cables from a different manufacturer due to the poor standard of your chargers. Your phones etc are brilliant but not having anything to charge them with is a disgrace.

    Terrible

    Short and sweet version: it breaks 2 months after first bought. I'm on my 5th cable in a year. I'm so glad apple makes such reliable products.

    3 Lightning Cables Failed

    I have three cables. Each one has failed one way or another.

    Cable one: The Bedside Cable. The cable fell apart. The rubber coating broke which exposed the wires. I only used this cable at night and it never moved from the nightstand. It completely stopped working shortly after wires were exposed.

    Cable two: The Kitchen Cable. Just stopped working; no sign of damage.

    Cable three: The Car Charger. The Lightning tip touched a little snow this Winter and now it will only charged when plugged in a certain way.

    My previous Android phones used the micro USB and those things were like little tanks and I never had a single problem with one (except one that was really poor quality). This is not the quality I expect from Apple.

    Worst

    Best phone in the world with worst charging cable.
    Selling out a high price phone with such a short duration working charging cable. Why apple?
    Read the reviews and not a single review in favour of it.
    Expensive charging cable doesn't mean bad quality just with a good brand image.
    Please make good charging cable from iPhone 6 onwards.

    useless cable

    I take good care of my things. Even my $10 headphones last longer than the lightning cable. Why is it so hard for you to make a good one. In less than a year, I have to change 3 times for the cable itself. Such a lousy product with an expensive price. Not worth it. Your product is getting nastier phones by phones.

    Disappointed

    I'm really disappointed by the charger, I've gone through 3 in the past year and I don't expect to have to keep buying replacement chargers having spent a whole lot of money on my iPad after saving up for over a year by doing extra (hard) work. The price of the charger is way too high, I would have thought it would be acceptable if the charger was of a higher quality. I look after my chargers carefully always pulling it out by the base and not the wire but it repeatedly breaks. What frustrates me further more is if Apple isn't going to improve the charger or reduce the price which I really can't afford is that the non Apple chargers (which are of a much higher quality and a fraction of the price) are t allowed to be used.
    Last time my charger broke I had to go for 4 weeks without using my iPad which is a real inconvenience as much of my school work is saved on it. This is real disappointment Apple.

    Breaks

    These chargers break all the time and just stop charger, it's a manufacturing defualt and either apple fixes this or gives me a free new one every time mine break because I'm tired of buying new ones.

    Low quality

    This product is very disappointing. We have three I phone in the house and this cable has been replaced six times in one year.
    It stops charging phone, poor quality shame on a company that makes so many other good products.
