      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.

      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 cable. Didn't know Apple makes such cheap strategies

      These cables are absolutely terrible, shoddily built!!! They don't last even 6 months and there after start warping exposing the wires inside. I made several v These cables are absolutely terrible, shoddily built!!! They don't last even 6 months and there after start warping exposing the wires inside. I made several visits to Apple stores but they dont care as you are stating the obvious. These salesmen are trained to speak and tell you that you are using the cable incorrectly and theirs are still going strong after two years!! Well that's a stategy that make cheap cables to make sure it doesn't last promising them a repeat business!! Do anyone think that Apple cannot get this straitened out with the quality of the phones they are launching year after year?? Well it's obvious!!! The cables made back during 2005 were built to a higher standards and to this day I have the original iPod cables and all of them work perfectly with no signs of warping. I have three of them and all going great!! Recently I switched from Apple to alternate brand and they work like a charm. It's over 10 months and they do not show any signs of wear. Looks brand new even today. Sorry Apple not buying your expensive chords anymore. You can keep all of them, until and unless you straighten things up and price your cables appropriately to make it worth a buy!! I will rate your cables 0 if I ever could!!

      Last a long time if you look after them

      I have several of these cables and have never had one fail. If you look after them (ie don’t kink them and only pull on the plug not the cable etc, ) then they I have several of these cables and have never had one fail.
