    Work great!

    I have been using two of these cables daily for the past 5 years. Replaced one under warranty during the first year for an intermittent incompatible error message that turned out to be due to an iOS issue, which was later solved. Since then, they have performed flawlessly (but the white surfaces have become a bit dirty so prefer to have a black color option). So, in my long-term experience, these work quite well and I recommend them for routine use.

    Expensive and poor quality

    Lost count on how many new cables I've had to buy. My advice would be to find an alternative branded one, they last A LOT longer.

    Cable and Phone

    I used a brand new cable from a new iPad with my phone and it keeps disconnecting changed every USB port I have still does the same.

    It has put me off getting a new phone until the problem is fixed, as I feel it must be both cable and phone/ipad...

    Never had this with the other connectors ever all old connectors work 100% of the time.

    Please fix this chaps

    I opened my new iPhone 8 plus day before yesterday. This morning, I took out this chord so I could charge my phone and play music in my car. THE CHORD DOESNT WORK. It charges my phone for 3 seconds and then stops and repeats this process for as long as I have it plugged in. Y'all are wack for selling this garbage to people and now I have to schedule a trip to the apple store located in the non stop traffic jam that is clybourn, north avenue, and halsted. THANKS LOTS APPLE. I only gave this one star because zero is not an option.

    Great Cord!

    This cord is perfect to leave plugged into my desktop computer or in the car to charge with on the go.

    Absolute rubbish. On my 6th cable now!!!
    Apple, are you really expecting your customers to put up with this any longer?

    It works great

    If those of you who gave a negative review would have read the description and called a rep you would have noticed it's not as thick nor as long as a regular one. These are primarily made for use in a vehicle so they aren't as long nor do they have the thickness. I have the same lightning charger for my phone as I had when the first one came. It is still in great shape and it's been through hades and back, including having a cat that wanted to chew it. This says it is 0.5 m. The others don't. This works great for charging in my car and not having a cord so long. And the charging cable that comes with their products is nice and long unlike other brands. If it's given you a not supported message it is probably what you are plugging it into to get power NOT their own cable. Oh, learn to spell.

    Horrible cable from apple

    This is like the 5th time I have to buy a cable. I am so upset about the waste of money. Yet, I have to buy it from apple because when you give other non-apple kinds a try they tend to fail after a while too.

    Very disappointing apple. What are you even doing about it?

    Good cables if looked after!

    The reason these cables fail is because people are pulling the cable from the cord and not from the plastic white bit and also because folks wrap the cable up leaving the ends open to getting caught on other objects then yanking them out of storage!

    I've never had a cable fail (yet) and I've been using the lightning cable since 2012, My wife on the other hand has but she does the above, pulls it from the cord!

    Only reason i didn't rate this 5 is because the price increase from £15 to £19 cannot be justified!

    Every apple charger I buy only lasts atleast 3 months! Never last. I have to go buy a new one all the time.

    The Worst!

    As much as I love Apple, the company makes the most fragile accessories and cables. Of course, they are not standard so you have to order from them. They seem to break under normal use and I am always afraid that they will fray and break down.
    When you need to use your equipment it is stressful to find out that you can't charge something.

    Apple, start making better cables.

    Soddy and expensive

    Have had my iPhone for about 18 months and am now on my 4th cable. They all fray no time. I agree with the other comments that this is a bit disgraceful. At £19 per cable, 3 replacement equate to just shy of £60 to keep my phone running. Lightning products are really not good value for money - maintenance costs are way too high.

    So bad, so embarrassing

    For a company like Apple, or for any company for that matter, it is just downright embarrassing to make a product that consistently fails. I never ever had another cable where the insulation just spontaneously started to fray at the flex points. I've had 2 cables, both gently handled, both failed, with the insulation just fraying from the inside wire.

    Lighting Cable

    I have gone through 6 lighting cables in the past 3 months and spent over $80 on lighting Cables. I think it's absolutely ridiculous that the cord breaks and stops working no matter how much I took care of it it continuously broke.

    This cord broke in a few months after purchasing new. A cord from a different brand lasted longer. This product is a disgrace to Apple product quality and the company in general. How hard is it to make a decent cord? It's a joke

    Worst iPhone cable out there

    Those Apple cables are just awful.
    Despite the enormous price tag they are flimsy, poorly manufactured and don't last.
    After changing a few of them I gave up and switched to more durable and better designed third party cable.

    Need an iPhone cable? Don't waste your money on the original one, it is a really-really bad product.

    Raised the price to £19 from £15 for this garbage?

    I am sick of buying this stupid cable every month. Now they raised the price from £15 to £19. Are you serious apple? What is wrong with you guys. I am switching my phone soon, bye bye apple.

    Money black hole!

    I have bought so many iPhone chargers I have lost count. They always break, whether it be internally after a few months resulting in the dreaded connection and disconnection over and over and over when trying to charge my device. Or the deterioration of the cable on either end resulting in exposed wires. How can a company that prides itself on quality still be putting out cheap horrible chargers? I will be buying a different brand next time. I will not waste my money on apple anymore!

    Cable is as Cable does

    I have several of these in various lengths. Never had a problem with them. I have started to take a liking to the 0.5m cables though. I've twisted them, rolled them, spun them, and haven't had any tear or fray. I fist 'em up and stuff 'em in my backpack, I twist 'em up when connecting devices in the car or in the home. I'm not sure what people expect of these cables, but they do the job. I gave 4 stars because Apple only offers them in white. Just kidding.
