    Poor

    Sadly the only apple product that's ever disappointed me. Poor quality cable - everyday use will break this cable fast, it's just not up to the simple light wear and tear of life. Mine never leaves my bedside table but still broke fast. You can expect it to work for a bit then give up.

    Why hasn't this been addressed

    Just purchased my third cord in just over a year. Didn't realize that Apple was using disposable parts these days. Very disappointed that Apple hasn't redesigned this cord or maybe this is just a new part of their business plan. I guess next time I'll try a third party cord.

    Worst product EVER!

    I'm currently on my 4th lightening to USB Cable in the space of 12 months! Unacceptable - this is the worst product Apple has ever made - for my previous iPhones which I had for over two years a piece, I never ever needed to replace the chargers - this product is badly designed and very expensive to replace! I would say don't buy any apple products that use this type of cable - you will be sorely disappointed.

    Biggest Disappointment About Apple

    The lightning cable stinks. I've purchased at least a half dozen cables over the past year. They fail after repeated use and they're not cheap. I tried going with 3rd party cables to reduce the replacement costs only to find out that apple intentionally installs security features on the iOS updates that makes these cables obsolete. The recent update to our idevices has rendered these cable useless.

    Apple, I don't mind paying extra for a quality product (iphone), but the charging cables are horrible and much worse than the older version which never gave us any problems. FIX IT and don't make your customers pay for it. It's your mistake!

    To fragile

    I love how fast it charges my phone but what good is it if it keeps breaking? I can't keep buying a new one. Not what I expected from Apple, thought it was all about quality, this surely shows me otherwise.

    iPhone 5 / iPad charger cable. No star rate!!!!!

    Very very disappointed with the iPhone 5/iPad cable. We have 3 iPhone 5's in the household and 3 iPads and all but one of the cables have broken at the end which goes into the device. We have had iPhone 3's/4's and numerous iPods and never have we had to replace the cable. Come on apple I am so annoyed as we are all fighting to charge our apple products but we now only have one. Very very disappointing with all the money that we have spent on your products. By the looks of things there are a lot if other people in the same boat as me. I've never had to buy a new charger cable for any phone and I've had a lot throughout the years sony, Nokia Samsung and never had to replace any of them. I hope you read he reviews that your customers are putting on here and do something about it. Like sending me 4 cables would be a start and free of charge. You have my details as I had to put my iTunes account login. I will wait in anticipation!!

    SAVE YOURSELF

    Lightning pin is by far, the best cord EVER at ruining your life... Save yourself money and time and just buy an adapter and use it with a 30 pin cable. Not only will the lightning pin cord have you missing out on calls, texts, or emails because your phone is dead and can't charge, but you will pulling hair, kicking walls, and punching babies , at the fact you will either pay an absurd amount of money for countless more chargers, or purchase a new phone, which isn't too cheap either. So I say to you dear reader of this review, thank you for taking your time to understand the pain and suffering I have gone through, and I hope I can save you the MANY more to come to this site for another cord. And to Apple, I proudly raise my middle finger to you as you have changed a one time Apple lover. You are unbelievably rich, so why is there the need to ruin customers life over 20 dollars every 3 months (or sometimes less)

    Works well for me

    I've no idea what you clowns are doing to your cables but I have two and they both work very well indeed.

    If it's faulty, return it to Apple and get another one. They sell millions of the things and there are 1,500 comments here. What does that tell you?

    Cable - I phone 5c - 5s

    My son is on his 4th cable in 6 months for the IPhone 5c. The cable is poorly made and there should be a recall on the cables. My daughter has a iPhone 5s her charger only lasted one week before we had to get a replacement. I am so disappointed with this charger that I may never buy another apple product again.

    On to the Next Replacement Charger -____-

    This is literally my FOURTH charger. It is ridiculous that I pay so much money for the iPhone 5 and have to pay almost the same in chargers (eventually). There needs to be a charger that is durable so people don't have to keep paying for a new charger. The best chargers yet were the ones for the 4s and earlier!!

    I would rate it 0 stars if I could.

    CHEAP

    Seriously Apple, get it together!!!! It's sad I am considering going to Samsung because of this piece of cheap cable charger. They're disposable. Ive gone through 3 already and bought my iPhone 5s in November. I don't mistreat it. It just stops working out of nowhere. Yes, they will send you another one if your still under warranty, but the inconvenience is a pain!!! My old iPhone 4 charger was broken with missing plastic around the base of the cable and still woks after 3 years. This cable is the worst!!! After paying almost 700 dollars for a phone you would think Apple would have the respect of actually making accessories work!

    Extremely irritated

    I am literally up to my 6th power cord for my phone and 3 for my iPad mini, and there seems to be absolutely no solution to fixing the problem with these expensive cables .

    Charger will break over time

    I've had two of these chargers and both of them have broken. I would say that these have a lifespan between 5 months and a year. They are cool at first but the durability is terrible so don't expect these to last half as long as your phone.

    This product is terrible

    I am on my 3rd cable in 12 months, this is ridiculous. The Apple store staff claim that I have pulled on the cable, when in face the plastic, even when treated like it's made of gold continues to fray and eventually the entire cable fails. BUY ELSEWHERE.

    Bad quality product

    The worst quality product ever made. I have had many of these chargers for the same iPhone and Apple won't replace any of them. Even when shown the invoice for a charger bought less than 5 months ago it's not classed as under "warranty" because it's in an "awful" condition. It's a wire it's going to bend. The staff are down right rude about the subject and put all the blame on the customer for the faulty wire. £15 for a new wire that is going to break within months is ridiculous. Why don't they invest more money in a new structure for the wire if it is such a known problem instead of making consumers pay again and again for a faulty product. You only need to take a look at the online review to see there is a big problem.

    iPhone 5C and iPad Mini lightning pin charger

    We have now gone through 4 lightning pin chargers. We are always very careful with unplugging it so as not to pull on the cable. What's up with the quality? Very disappointing ... makes me less inclined to upgrade our other iPhones and iPads that will require this charging cable.
