    Not expected from Apple

    The apple lightening charging cables are prone to breakage. You can find your phone has no charge after leaving it on its factory charger and cable overnight. Like I did. No warning, nothing. Dead phone. No one could get a hold of me. The cable would not work. No apple store nearby. What do you do. Get a windows phone? The lightening cable won't work. No reason. On top of all this Apple has now placed software on our devices that rejects cables not made or authorized by them. Reportedly due to a fire from copy cat cable. So we all have to pay $19.99 for an inferior product. Not a good sign of things to come. The iWatch supposedly will replace your wallet. Well my wallet does not disappear due to a faulty cable. Definitely not expected from Apple and its superior products....(formerly !!)

    Useless !!!!

    Every single cable I have had with each iPhone and iPad are all broken.
    I have paid for three other cables and now they are also damaged.
    The design of this product is disgraceful.
    Instead of developing the new iPhone 7 maybe apple should develop
    a cable that works after two months.Absolutely disgusted with the performance.

    Don't waste your money

    For the $20 I spent, I thought the cable would last at least six month. Not a chance. The cable disconnected from the charging point/prongs and left the charging prongs inside my iPhone portal. Really?!?

    Houston, we have a problem here.....

    So today another one of these poorly made cables has failed. Just like the last one, this cable's plastic at the base of the Lightning end has shredded exposing the wires inside and now it only works intermittingly (at best) if it’s positioned a certain way. And even then, it goes out again eventually. This caused my phone to die overnight which made me oversleep when the alarm didn’t go off. Like I said before, this is not the first time this has happened. This actually marks the third cable to fail on me in the last year, all in similar circumstances. Obviously there’s a problem! You can look at the reviews here and multiple reports elsewhere and see that a trend has been forming. Question is, will Apple do anything about it? If they want us to continue spending a large amount of money on their high priced items and support only their accessories in conjunction, then these products, just like Apple, have to be accountable. I love Apple, always have. But please, fix this.

    Bad

    This cord is so bad. Had it for one week and it doesnt even work anymore. Please learn how to make durable cords so we don't have to keep wasting more money.

    Two weeks old and now dead.

    Got my IPhone 6+ two weeks ago and now the lightning cable doesn't work. Hello Apple do you read these reviews. I can't believe a Company that prides itself on the customer experience is not reading these reviews and taking action.

    Terrible quality for the price

    Terrible design flaws mean that this cable breaks really easily even with careful normal use. I could buy a much cheaper cable from an alternative supplier but I had foolishly thought that buying from Apple would mean a better product.
    Really expensive and really rubbish!

    It's just awful

    The lightning cable is the worst piece of technology I've ever dealt with. Seriously, this fragile cable is so bad I can't even argue how other brands' products are lightyears away from Apple just based on functionality. Ok, I get the idea of the cable being versatile and all that but omg. SJ must be turning in his grave with the lack of customer care this cable represents. I'm not the worst handler, I've never broke any cable of any other brand before. And I had a lot of phones in the last 11 years. I must have switched phones at least 14 times and it's the latest (which was supposed to be better) that was the only which I've ever had any problem with. I could buy a cheap phone with the money I spent on this chargers, seriously. This is not funny. It makes me ignore any other features Apple products have to provide, I just want out of this product just because of the hassle. I hate to say it but Apple's lightning USB cable is awful and Apple's products are awful by association.

    Worst product

    Apple thinks giving a sturdy charger is a issue of stylish prestige?? They think its very fancy to provide a delicate wired charger. Actually its so irritating and annoying that its worn out very frequently and have to replace it. If they are not going to address thia and deliver a good charger for people who aleeady own it am goin to switch from apple to android. I have been with apple for 6 years but this cheap thing annoys. I will also campaign my friends not to buy this one orally as well as in socia media

    Terrible

    I have had to buy multiple of these cables. After a few months of use, they stop working. At 20 bucks one would expect better quality

    Terrible but we're stuck!

    I'm also disappointed that I have now had to buy my 3rd cable in the space of 9 months (possibly mine have lasted longer than some!). I would expect a charger to last the lifetime of the product it's meant to charge. It's a complete rip-off by Apple, but we're stuck in a rut and can't get out. Sort it PLEASE Apple...

    Apple - beautiful products connected with shoddy cables

    How can a company that claims to pioneer such high standards of design produce something as terrible as this?
    And for £15!
    Please Apple - respect the fact we've invested money in your hardware and supply cables that last more than 5 minutes.

    Terrible quality

    I have had to purchase 3 of these cables in the last 4 months. Terrible quality, same issue every time where it appears the cables fray internally near the ends, the plastic then becomes very flimsy and within no time at all, a direct connection is not possible. Why don't Apple fix this?? The cables are not exactly cheap either......

    Fragile Lightning Cable

    I have got through six cables in the last two years. I would like to update to I Phone six and mini my son wants an air but jus can't buy something with
    Such an unreliable charging system. My I phone 3s I still have the original cable and is used daily for work use. This was a quality product and still used as a reserve when I am waiting for the new cables to arrive. Come on Apple please please please sort this on your next models! Samsung is calling!!

    Rubbish

    Awfully designed charger, very flimsy and breaks regularly. Far too expensive for any charger, nevermind one prone to breaking regularly (after only a few months use)

    Poor quality make.

    For a company that boasts quality, I really hope they read the reviews and re-evaluate this product. I have had at least 10+ Apple cords in the past and every single one has had the wires become loose and no longer able to be used. A similar situation to apple earphones. A redesign is imperative.

    Moving onto Samsung

    I am sick to death with the Apple cables expensive and stop working in less than a few months. What's worse is the distinct lack of accountability Apple has for this utterly appalling product. On I go to the 15th cable, roll on upgrade month!!

    Just wanted to add my 2 pennuth - i have lost count how many replacement cables i have had to buy for my son's ipad mini and my ipad - with the number of comments on here it does not look as if Apple are going to do anything about it!

    ps the magnetic charging cable for my Macbook pro is fantastic so i know it can be done!!
