    broke after 4 months

    why am i having to buy a new charger after 4 months of use? I intend to have my iPhone 5s for at least 2 years... that means i'm going to spend roughly $150 on new chargers over the life of my phone?? No thanks.

    Fragile charging cable

    I have had the same problem as everyone else. What I don't understand is why no one contacts Apple and demand a replacement. I did, when mine went after only six weeks.

    Lower your prices!

    Shouldn't have to pay $29 each time your cables don't work, have gone through 5 different ones in the space of half a year - make proper ones or reduce the price at least!

    changing phone brands when plan is up

    Sick of paying good money for something worth 1/10 of what it is worth. always dies in a short period of time, for something left in one place and only used to plug a phone in and out. i live a fair way from shops so cant just pop out and get a new one so am left for days with out a phone for contacting with a baby this is not a good position to be in. not happy will not support apple products once this plan is up!!!!! disgusting the quality for the price you pay. Apparently a half star is not possible thats what this deserves.

    Lightning is why I bad mouth my iPhone to my friends

    I love my iPhone 5s. IOS is the best mobile operating system and everything about the phone is top notch.

    Except.

    The lighting cable is the worst computer component I have encountered in a long time. The cables quit working after a few weeks, despite learning to treat them with kid gloves. I don't crunch, bend or twist them and they look great. They just stop working. And it's another $20 trip to the Apple store.

    It's infuriating because Apple was clearly trying to be clever by inserting a chip into the cable to discourage cheap alternative cable makers. The problem is that their own cheap cables don't last either.

    I would write something worse but the website bans naughty words.

    Terrible

    I've lost two cables in the last two months. It's terrible to loose original cables without any reason. They simply stops working.

    Waaaaaah!!!!

    5 months into owning my iPhone6 and the cable it's twisted/bent right under the charging port. Incredibly annoying considering this cord is only used in one place and hasn't been moved from that place since purchasing. Even more annoying is the constant "this accessory may not be supported" message that continuously pops up on my phone screen while the phone is charging. Hardly a quality product, especially considering it costs $20! Way to go, Apple. ��

    Worst charger cables I ever had.....

    I had changed the cable almost 5 times in the last one year and still none is giving satisfactory performance...
    Can Apple do something to take care of this issue on priority?
    I see lot of resentments among customers. Company must do something to improve the situation.
    Next time I would never ever try iPhone if this continues........................

    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...
