    A disgraceful product

    I am so tired of replacing iPhone/iPad chargers. We have in our house 6 apple products but never more than 2 chargers working at a time
    It's about time Apple designed a cable that is built to last.

    I have spent a fortune on cables and I am seriously considering changing to an android phone if the problem with cables isn't fixed soon.

    Come Apple sort this out. Instead of working on another iPhone get some of your technical guys to fix this issue. Or at least make the price of replacements a lot cheaper.

    Are you willing to buy a new cable every 6 months?

    Because that's what will happen. I just don't understand how Apple can build and iPhone in all it's complexity and fails to bring a reliable cable to us.
    It's just a cable! Why can't you build one that actually works for a while??

    Simply the Best Lightning Cable Ever

    I bought this 0.5m usb lightning cable for my 64gb space grey iPhone 5s, to plug into my macbook air, but then i also bought the £35 new designed apple lightning dock stand, but i didn't want too much cable clutter around my desk, so this is the perfect cable for my macbook air to my iPhone 5s, its short, simple, and very reasonable length, which is plenty far to go around from the back of your macbook to you iPhone, if i could post an picture i would have explained it more, but unfortunately theres no way i can show it to yo, but it works perfectly and its amazing, its an must buy for all macbook, pc, laptop user or even for your car. :-)

    hopeless cables

    Apple cables are very poorly specified. The strain relief is insufficient and the cable sleeve wears easily. They have been like this since I first had an iPhone 3G. Lightning cables have not improved the reliability at all. I am constantly throwing out failed cables and buying replacements.

    It really is time Apple addressed this. It's a joke.

    Consider changing to Android

    I've never previously owned a phone that lasted longer than the charger. But my I-Phone 5 has just been one long story of terrible cables. The one that came with the phone just stopped working after a few months. I've tried cheap ones, which periodically get blocked by Apple. But today my patience has been blown. Having bought two expensive chargers which were sold as certified in an attempt to avoid 'cable not certified message' they both stopped working at the same time. No doubt some upgrade that I've not been warned about. If Apple can't produce a charger that works then it is totally unfair not to let you buy one that does. I've now got a dead phone with no means of charging. I was considering buying the new I-Phone when it comes out, but I will seriously consider changing to a phone with a reliable power supply as that is basic.

    Poor Quality

    Had my iPhone 5c for only two weeks and the charger has already broken! The wire has come out of the actual charging component that fits into the phone, exposing the copper wires. Very dangerous! Turned it off straight away, preventing a possible serious accident. Not impressed, Apple.

    Disgraceful

    Cord after cord after cord stops working after only a few months. Absolutely disgraceful Apple!!
    Must be how they make the lightning as the 30 pin cord from my iPod Classic is the same one (never replaced).

    Flimsy and Poor Quality

    The cable started fraying within a couple of months. This wasn't a one-off, the replacements did not fare any better. Not up to Apple's usual standards. My iPhone 4 cable is still fine. Interesting, considering the two sit side-by-side and the iPad cable is not subjected to additional wear and tear. Much less, as a matter of fact.

    It's simply a case of a poor quality product.

    Poor engineering design

    Might want to consider and arrange customer priorities when designing a product. You seemed to have poorly evaluated the customers needs on cable specification of life expectancy. Have bought several cables now didn't realise there was a monthly subscription fee of one cable per month for charging my phone.

    This wont come as a shock

    I am now on my 5th cable in 15 months. My phone spends most of its life sat charging on my work desk, so its not unusual usage. Yes Apple will "occasionally" replace the cable FOC, but put simply, the cable is not fit for purpose. Unfortunately I cannot foresee a change to this issue, as its all about the %'s of faults with Apple. It would however be useful if they could at least reduce the price of the cables to reflect the quality of the product.

    Horrendous

    Appalling. I've gone through 3 cords in the space of 6 months. Very flimsy, and breaks down with regular use. I would give this product 0 stars out of 5, if I could.

    Not good.

    The Lightning cables for my iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPad Mini all failed within the first 6 months. Poor build quality and/or design fault. I bought replacements from Kmart who now do a range of very cheap legit copies. Don't waste your money here.

    Shocking charger

    Pun intended, but on a serious note, this is such a terrible charger, everyone has the same issue with the cable splitting at the top of the lightening port.

    let down

    I feel completely let down by Apple as I have bought many of their products but the lighting cable to my iPhone 5s (and both my daughter's iPhones) have failed to work for no reasonable reason, on more than one occasion. To replace these cables are not cheap £15 a time! This is the most usless piece of equipment ever and I feel Apple should seriously look into producing a new charger free of charge to all that are forced to use this useless lightning cable - it is seriously not fit for its purpose!

    Worst product ever, fix it Apple!!

    It is clear that Apple know (from reading the terrible reviews on here) that their chargers are hopeless and consistently break, however choose to do nothing about it as they are making a killing with people having to buy new cables every few months. I have probably bought about 12 cables from the Apple Store over the last few years. Completely unacceptable. Fix the issue Apple, I'm over paying for new ones!!!! Very frustrating!!!!

    Terrible product

    I seem to be very lucky -- other people report their Lightning cables becoming unusable after as little as a month, whereas mine seem to last 3-4 months. Which is still appalling. But at least our local Apple reseller is willing to replace them. And I hear that Apple stores replace them no-questions-asked. It's still a shame that such high quality phones and tablets are let down by such terrible cables.

    Product Recall - this cable is not Apple Quality

    I have had too many replaced, A friend was told today they won't replace her cable after 2 months use. My cable that was replaced is also needing to be replaced soon.

    This is a definite cable quality issue. "Cablegate". C'mon Apple! reinvest those billions into providing better quality cables for your customers.
