      Apple sinks to new low with these cords

      I paid a fortune for my cords because "off brand, inferior cords can ruin you iPhone" I was told by an AT&T rep. Well guess what? The Apple cords don't last.

I've had it with this company and its attitude.

      Terrible. Keep breaking and cost is ridiculous.

      I have been through so many lightning cables, I have lost count. At least five of these 1m ones (all broke) and third party ones are even worse. The Apple I have been through so many lightning cables, I have lost count. At least five of these 1m ones (all broke) and third party ones are even worse. The Apple cables cost way too much and are of appalling quality. It is galling to read the tiny number of positive reviews for this truly awful product saying that the problem is just because people don't take care of the cables. What offensive nonsense. They cost a lot of money and are a pain to replace, but they stop working even when carefully handled. The idea practically everyone else who has written a review is simply a careless idiot is not only rude, it is really quite dim. These cables have uber-delicate internal wires that seem to get disconnected very easily. The microchips in them require extra internal cables, so there is more to go wrong and it seems like the only design imperative was for it to be small. I'd rather something bigger that worked!! Third party cables frequently don't work and even those sold with 'Made for iPhone' approval and sold by Apple will frequently fail and many won't charge at all as the iPhone or iPad will claim that 'This accessory may not be supported' and then fail to charge. Of course, that's better than it exploding the phone if it really is dodgy, but come on! After having that issue with a LOT of third party cables, I bought more of these Apple ones and all but one have failed. It really is stunning why Apple allowed this problem to continue for so long and haven't apologised about it and still have made no promise to improve them. Of course, wireless and inbuilt solar charging would be great, but I'd settle for a cable that works. It is hard to know what to recommend as there aren't many alternatives that are very good either. That said, my Belkin one in my car has been OK for several months and has withstood being wound up and unwound repeatedly. My iPhone and iPad are a big part of my life, taking over ever more functions, and with services like Apple Pay we are placing ever more reliance on our Apple devices. If you run out of battery on the Tube in London, you could end up being overcharged if you can't touch out. If you were hoping to pay for a meal with your iPhone, you can't if it's not powered. Being able to charge the device up is so fundamental to being able to use these devices that I just can't see why this isn't being treated seriously. Wireless charging is long overdue and competitors are way ahead on that. I'm not going to upgrade my iPhone 6+ to the next model if it doesn't have wireless or a new type of cable. In the meantime, please stop selling these awful cables and switch to a toughened Lightning cable that is designed with some slack on the internal cables so they don't come detatched so easily! And please make it easier for third parties to make alternatives that are safe, cheap and reliable too. Luckily, my JBL speaker dock (cheap and v loud, highly recommended) does charge well (and has a USB port so can do your iPad at the same time if you can find a Lightning cable that works :-P ! It is truly infuriating that I'm now having to spend another £10-£20 on yet another cable. I could have paid for one year's access to Apple Music for the same amount I've spent on these ruddy things! I think I'll have to hope another Belkin one will be as sturdy as the one in my car!!! Come on Apple, my 128GB iPhone 6 Plus cost as much as a used car! Please make charging it more straightforward, less expensive and reliable! Pretty please?!

      Terrible, bad choice of material, and barely fit for purpose, zero stars

      I've had three cables. On one of them the outer plastic covering just corroded away and started flaking off so I could see the metal sheathing underneath. On an I've had three cables. On one of them the outer plastic covering just corroded away and started flaking off so I could see the metal sheathing underneath. On another two after normal use (yes, cables are meant to flex and bend in normal use without breaking) the plastic and metal sheathing just broke apart near the lightning connector, and I've had to resort to wrapping them in sellotape around the end to cover up the break and give them some strength. Considering the lip service given to industrial design, these cables are terrible.

      No Problem with Cable Breakage Here

      I don't understand why so many complaints about the iPhone USB cable easily breaks. I've had my original cable for over a year and it still looks brand new wit I don't understand why so many complaints about the iPhone USB cable easily breaks. I've had my original cable for over a year and it still looks brand new with no sign of breakage or poor charging performance. I treat my cables like I treat my phone itself, with respect. I never wrap my cables where either end becomes bent, whether charging or storing, (even while in my pocket). A family member had a cable for another brand phone and it began tearing at the phone entry end. All I did was put some electrical tape around it and it works fine. I suggested that she not allow the ends to bend. One thing you can do with your cable is wrap it at each end before it breaks. This will prolong its usefulness. You may say, "At 20 bucks, I should not have to do that." I agree, but as I said, I take very good care of my cables. I have not wrapped mine with tape and don't intend to due to how i take care of it. I'm about to purchase another Apple brand cable to leave in my car. It too will be properly cared for, with respect.

      This charger is great but you just have to take care of it.....that means don't bend it or press it down with your phone on a table or bed/couch also don't just This charger is great but you just have to take care of it.....that means don't bend it or press it down with your phone on a table or bed/couch also don't just let it fall to the ground when your done with it. People are saying it's bad quality but honestly you just have to treat gently.
