    Too expensive, rip off constantly replacing it

    Big company like Apple should redesign it

    Work OK

    I have had my cables for years and they work fine. One has become a little frayed at the phone end, but I put a piece of sticking plaster round it and it has been no trouble for over a year. In fact our recent house-sitters took both cable and 12W power adaptor with them when they left. Not happy about that. Maybe the older cables were better made?

    don't buy

    this review is pointless because there are 1000+ bad reviews already but here's mine anyway

    i have my ipad 4 for 4 years now and it still works great, with the expected loss of performance and battery life but not the same can be said about the charging cable, after 2 years my first one broke, teared at the connector but i used it until it didn't charge anymore so i bought a new 2 meter cable, same problem after same time, 2 years. i considered putting a big dab of silicone on it but that's too late already because it already struggles with charging. i'm not wasting money on their cables anymore there are cheaper options that are much better. safety of those cheaper cables doesn't concern me either because mine with the exposed wires now doesn't look safe anyway

    Negative Stars is more like it

    I continue to replace these cables and unless you buy one from Apple the others never seem to be compatible even when they claim to. You should be replacing these for free at this rate..

    Worst cable in the world.

    I started to feel that these cables are intentionally made to be the worst cables in the world so we have to keep buying them every 2-3 months. I'm really angry at the quality of this cable. I can't understand how they stay same after more than 1000 negative comments about it. All these years same cables are being produced and they keep getting broke..

    Shame on your Apple!

    3 years of daily use, finally decided to fail.

    I've been using the original cable that came with my 6 in 2014, and its just now decided to break the sheath and stop working properly. Considering its used daily, I feel like three years is a pretty solid lifespan. I guess a lot of people are harder on their things than I am, but if you take care of your things, they will last. Looked at other non apple lightning cables and don't really trust any of them. Will be buying another one of these and using it daily for another three years.

    Awful

    I hate that I have to buy another one of these because my other one wore out so fast and I keep getting "This accessory may not be supported" with other cords. Makes me hate apple.

    Extremely poor quality

    Very useless quality cable.it can use only for 6 months after that it becomes garbage.
    They don't know how to make cable.china cable is more useful than iphon cable.Try to manufacture black coloured cable because white cable become too dirty.

    Broken after 6 months

    I had to use plyers to remove the charger element inside the phone...Poor quality for such an expensive tool...Get it right APPLE!! or at least lower the price so resemble the other poorly made cable chargers out there.

    Yea... please redesign.

    Can you make a redesign for this charger? So it doesn't break... at all? My dad isn't buying anymore lightning cables for me, either, so you better also make them cheaper.

    Junk

    4 iphones in our family, every one has an Apple supplied cable broken or breaking in the same place.
    The cheaper copy cat accesories available don't generally work, so the only option is buying Apple's expensive version. Which will surely break in a few months. Very disappointing. 1 star rating given as 0 not an option, but surely deserved.
    Apple, you are a great company with great products. But I don't think I've ever seen a worse star rating on any site, for any product, than you have achieved on this small but essential accessory. Maybe one to look at again.

    Terrible quality

    I'm on my third lightning cable and my 2nd magsafe power adaptor cable because Apple cannot make good quality cables. Each time, it's been the same problem - the rubber near the connector splits and the cable starts to fray.

    Your first thought might be "this guy doesn't look after cables." That's not true. I have mini USB and micro USB cables that I have had for years. I haven't used my lightning cables anywhere near as often as I have used those other cables. Apple cables are the only ones that have ever broken like this for me. It seems to be because of the material. If the cable gets twisted while it's plugged in (e.g. through use or moving around while charging), it puts strain on these parts and eventually splits. If all you ever do is leave your device perfectly still while this cable is plugged in then you might be ok.

    Third-party cables are also poor, I have two in front of me (one is braided for extra strength) that do not work properly when connecting my iPad to my MacBook Pro. They both continuously connect and disconnect. So, through bad third-party experiences, I'm forced to spend a lot of money on an official Apple product that I know will not last.

    So much waste :(

    I really love apple products but having to buy a new charger nearly every other month of £20 is ridiculous, it's ba fro see all the low reviews as well and it's the same reason Apple really need to do something about this, the money I spend on charger I could use to buy the songs that I want or anything else really, I love my iPhone but it's so hard to stick with it when my partner who has had his phone for nearly 3 years now and hasn't had to buy a new charger at all and he treats it like absolute rubbish but I look after my charger and slight bend the wrong way and it doesn't work anymore, this is really the last time I buy a charger if it breaks again might have to get rid of my iPhone as it's costing me way to much in chargers which is not something I can go without.

    Marketing Genius

    Apple designs a cable that is doomed for failure. Seriously, if this is the best that they can do then they should at least sell it at a reasonable price instead of gouging their customers.
