    Doesn't work

    • Written by Kirsten S from Dallas

    I bought this cable almost two months ago as a replacement for my old apple charger that was falling apart because I bent it too much and it was as I said, falling apart. Two days ago my replacement cable (this one) stopped working. I have to position the wire multiple times to get it to continuously charge instead of turning on and off. Before this I went out of my way to make sure I didn't bend the cord too much so it wouldn't break faster. But I did that for no reason as this just quit working. Don't waste your time buying this

    I wish I could rate it a negative five stars

    • Written by Ann K from Chicago

    Apple perhaps..just maybe you could pick up your game and stop selling shoddy merch. This is the third power cable I have had to get this year. The rubber portion cracks(degrades), the plastic portion cracks and the metal terminals crimp and bend ...oh and by the way I am not some youngin’ swinging a backpack around . I am an over-the-hill-and-through-the-woods 60 year old woman.

    Poor quality

    • Written by Salim F from Charlotte

    You would think buying a product from the actual merchant for the phone such as from Apple would guarantee a well-made, long lasting product. However, this is unfortunately not the case. Wire is no longer charging my phone and functioning properly after barely 3 months of use. Very displeased and dissatisfied with apple accessories. Much more worthwhile to buy charges off Amazon for a third of the price.

    GREAT CABLE!

    • Written by Jeff Z from Bear

    I've had this cable for 10 months and it works great! Not sure how others are having so much trouble with it. I used this cable to fast charge my iPhone XS MAX with an Anker PowerPort II since October 2018. Never had an issue. The cable isn't damaged nor have I damaged it. It WORKS!

    Apple Cables Are Not Reliable!

    • Written by Tonya S from Houston

    Apple cables are the worst! They are not reliable. They fray easily or have a tendency to no longer hold charge at any given time. I can't tell you how many new cables I've had to purchase. For the amount of money that Apple charges for phones, you'd think they come out with a reliable cable, but maybe that's the point--they want people to keep spending money on useless accessories. Shame on you, Apple! Do better!

    Mine failed in less than a year. Overpriced.

    • Written by Andre G from Birmingham

    I’m a massive Apple fan but I have to say this time for such an expensive cable I feel let down. Mine failed two months after the warranty’s period with no signs of fraying or damage. It was in doors once every couple of days to charge an iPad so saw relatively light use. I think Apple could have st least offered a discount on a new one if they stood by the quality of their products.

    Honestly, buy the Anker equivalent instead. It’s half the price and looks thicker and moe robust.

    Dispite being happy and excited with this cable and treating it with extra care, it worked fine for like 4 months then starts to act up and not charge iphone until I have to filp it and try multiple times. Problem got worse unitl it is very hard to chrage my iphine. One thing I am sure about is that I took good care of it and never left my room. So disappointed Apple. Thanks Total loss.

    Poor quality but necessary purchase

    • Written by Zach M from Chesapeake

    The quality of this cable is lacking. The problem is when you use a high wattage USB C outlet charger, there are no other cables on the market that can handle the high-speed charging. With this cable and the Anker 30W USB C charger, my phone charges 50-60% in 30 minutes. Purchasing other USB C cables on Amazon, I get nowhere near the same results. I just wish that Apple’s product was more robust.

    Disposable and Poorly Made

    • Written by Roquelle M. N from Saint George

    The lightning cable at 2m is the correct size for the vast majority of users.
    Three main issues appear with this product. The cable “skin” tears within one year and cracks appears on the hard plastic housing. The tip becomes loose and will not maintain a complete connection with the phone thus failing to properly charge the battery.

    Over all it’s an enormous disappointment and Apple can and must do better .

    True quick charge

    • Written by Christopher H from Houston

    I have used many cables over 2 years with my IPad 10.5 pro. Before I bought this cable I tried others that did not deliver. I have had this cable about a year. I put stress protectors on both ends. I clean the cable connectors with electrical cleaner. I clean and cover the lightning port. As I write this review I am using this old cable. To this day, this cable charges my tablet at about 1% per minute While I Use the Tablet. I do keep the display below half it charges faster. You may think the cable is expensive, I will say I have spent much more on the multiple back up cables that are long gone. That’s why I am buying a second one. It’s cheaper in the long run rather than the frustration of lesser quality cables. I include the cheaper Apple cables as well. In order to get True Quick Charge you Must use a high watt charger with USB C and an Apple Quick Charge cable. My iPad requires a 29w charger. I can truly say I have never been sorry. I just love watching the % go up as I use the tablet. It has charged 10% as I’m writing this review, and again this cable is a year old��

    Pricey but nice...

    • Written by Lucas K from SAN DIEGO

    I have purchased both the 1m & 2m. I’ve been using this for my iPad Pro 10.5” (2nd gen), iPhone X and iPhone XS Max. Worth the additional money to enable the “quick charge” capabilities (when used with the 18w). So far, no issues with the cord at all. I’ve been using the 2m “USB to Lighting” cables since 2017 timeframe, no issues at all with those. This USB-C to Lighting cable feels more durable than those and pose a great longevity. I recommend this if you have an iPad or iPhone that has the fast charge capabilities. Far superior than the slow 5w & 1m cord it comes with.

    2 meter charging cable is not even 10 months and its not working.

Which is 45 cad$ . Im an owner of 13’macbook ,6s and a 8+. My decision is to not buy any more apple products .

    How is this $35

    • Written by Cody R from Portland

    I am honestly that guy that defends Apple in almost everything they do. I love the design of their products and they add a lot of value to my life, and at this point I’m shoulder-deep in their ecosystem.

    But how can they possibly justify attaching a $35 price tag to this cable????

    It does feel slightyyy chunkier than the USB-A > Lightning cable (2m) that I have, so that’s nice. Maybe this one will last me longer than a year before strain relief damage splits the sheathing... maybe not. (I wish I had a pair of calipers to measure, but the diameter increase seems to be just a fraction of a millimeter.) But I’m only buying one because I recently upgraded my iPad Pro, so I now carry a USB-C power brick around with me everywhere I go and want to be able to charge my iPhone with it. This is been my solution for years – I certainly don’t want to carry 2 chargers with me everywhere. It’s bad enough that I just had to buy this cable because the iPhones have not yet made the transition to USB-C (I’m assuming they will this year).

    So anyway I know that there are inevitable growing pains when transitioning from one I/O standard to another, and it makes sense that some products would be first to adopt the change, what with independent product-release cycles and all. But at $35, it’s like I’m being punished for dropping the thousand dollars to upgrade my iPad. I don’t understand why they aren’t trying to help out people like me that are caught in the awkward middle ground as Apple goes about staggering USB-C introduction in their product line. Instead they clearly see this as an opportunity to profit off a $35 cable.

    I mean honestly the profit margin must be gargantuan.

    Started to burn the tip off of the lightning side.

    • Written by Chris M from Victorville

    Well title says all. I bought this to power delivery charge my iPad Pro 10.5 since this is the only cable capable to do it. Well I have apples usb c power delivery wall charger and only works half the time with the cable. After a couple of months of minimal use, the tip started to get really hot well this is normal when more amperage is flowing through a circuit, which is known as a voltage drop. The loss of voltage occurs and converts to heat. So I then started noticing little black spots on the lightning connector contacts. I looked at them with my microscope and notice burnt spots and some parts of the contacts are no longer there. This is very poor build quality and was not tested enough. So Apple if you can't get it right, let third party companies like Anker have the appropriate resources to make a proper MFI usb c to lightning cable. Also why are you still selling this without fixing the problem?

    Should've listened to the other reviews

    • Written by K W from New Orleans

    I never write reviews, but I'm so disappointed in the quality of this product. The first one we purchased broke with very light use -- the piece that connects into the iPhone just came out of the cord. The second one we purchased stopped working after a week. I work from home, do everything via conference calls, and am 37 weeks pregnant, so not having a charged phone is not an option. Instead of making it easy to facilitate a replacement, Apple requires you to ship the item back to them before they will issue a refund for replacement -- meaning the whole process takes over a week to complete, leaving you without a working charger the entire time. Unacceptable. If you are are going to create products that are so essential to people's safety and well-being, you need to have better systems in place to ensure they work properly or can be replaced easily/quickly.
