    This would be my last apple product..

    I have always liked apple products and have been using them. But new charging function of Iphone 5 is giving me so much problems that I have decided not to buy apple again.

    Got my 5th charger now. Took my phone to apple store, customer services agents were very rude and not helpful at all. And just because its been over a year since I got this phone now they are asking for ££ to get it fixed..... thanks apple!!

    Your new product has got issues... (lightning cable and charging point) and you are asking your customers to pay for it ???? (Lots of other people has got the same problem...)

    Steve's left and the company's gone....

    hate this

    I am beyond mad and frustrated with this product. It keeps breaking! The part where you plug it in on the charger scrunches up and I guess it gets loose. These things are kind of expensive and I am infuriated that I have to keep buying them. I know there are tons of people with the same issue as I. Apple should really do something about this.

    5th generation iPod cable

    Another unnecessary and costly change, in this case the connector cable for my iTouch, has transformed my attitude toward Apple. I will look harder the next time I shop for a new computer product.

    high price low quality

    I have 2 of these cables, one from my iphone and one from my ipad. I got both roughly a year ago and both are fraying at the lightning adapter end. Given the quality of these cables they are exorbitantly priced.

    iphone 5 charger

    I have had my iphone 5 since September and I have had to purchase a total of 13 chargers. This is a crying shame. Some say that they are not supported. I purchased my 13th on today and my phone hasn't powered on in 2 hours. Its most definitely Android time.

    Complete Garbage

    The quality of these cables is horrible. The outsides start peeling off of the wire within a few months. Next thing you know you have exposed wires and you're buying another one. Needless to say at $20 a pop it really chaps my hiney. Fix your cables Apple!

    How & why

    ... Do Apple persist with this tripe.... I am on my 4th cable now.. And there have all perished near the lightning end, if I paid £1.99 I'd still not expect the poor of a quality. £15 a pop.. 15!!! And they can't get them to last. Each and every person should get a refund. Some cheap fake knockoffs will last longer, apple hang your head in shame...

    Lightning Cable- Couldn't be worse

    Worst charging cables... I have wasted money on buying original apple for three times... which are almost ten times more expensive than the "fake" cables which work the same..why should one waste money in buying genuine apple cable... oh, at the first why should one be buying cables again and again....

    Bad Quality

    This cord was very inconvient from the start. At first I would need to spend about 2 minutes trying to put it in my iPad , but then it started to not work. I had to move the cord around in a certain position every time I plugged it in but then it actually broke off! I was amazed with the poor quality from apple.

    ipad mini charger absolute rubbish

    My grandcjhildren have got ipad mini from their school on an 2yr contract (which they pay montly ) one was issued 12 months ago, and the charger gave no trouble for about 10 months, but since then have replaced it 3 or 4 times these have lasted between 3days and 3weeks. she was able since sept to use her brothers charger when he went on the same deal from school this sept, but guess what? yes that as now given up working, so no ipad, very poor, tried to replace it from school as they have them at £5.00 a time, but they have none and are awaiting an order, if the rest of the pupils get through them at the same rate as my two, they will never have enough to supply the 500 kids that are on the same project. I have tried Asda.Tesco,Game uk, none have any, so that tells you how bad these leads are as the shops can't get them or don't want them, because customers must keep taking them back. as I say absolute rubbish, I hope the school does away with the scheme. as the pupils get behide when they are unable to charge the ipad up ready for a days lesson. NEED TO GET THIS LEAD RIGHT

    Shoddy product

    The cable that came with my one month old ipad mini wouldn't charge my pad and I got a message saying it wasn't an Apple product. Turned out the wires on the lightning side weren't soldered properly. It certainly isn't worth $19.00. I just hope my replacement works longer.
    I bought some made by another maker, but apparently Apple, in the newer IOS has blocked their use. Why not just fix the problem with the Apple product instead?

    Apples chargers have always been trash.

    I have a Iphone 5s and have had it for about 3-4 months and the end of the charger that plugs into the phone is scrunched up and has stopped working completely. I have had these troubles with my past iphone 4 & 4s. Instead of making new iphones, ipads, ipods. Apple need to make a more durable charger.

    Poor Design and Engineering Flaw

    The cable itself and technology for rapid transfer and charging is amazing

    HOWEVER

    The fact the cable within 2-3 months begins to fail is unacceptable and a VERY POOR design flaw. The area where the cable is built up before meeting the paddle end of the cable is I suffice to to support when the cable natural twists with use. Internally the cable wiring and shield pulls away from the meeting point. As the wiring and shield fray it cuts the rubberized sheath this creating not just an injury issue, but also a major potential to short and create a fire hazard.

    Extremely sub par for a company who can and has engineered a society linked via iPhone, iPad and iPod.

    Cheap Quality

    I have now had to replace this charger twice because the cord stopped working. Apple is very good with replacing it for you without charge but it is still very frustrating.

    Apple is taking advantage of us!

    So they gain our trust and loyalty with their products, then Steve Jobs passes away and the quality goes to heck. I am on my 3rd lightning to usb cable in 5 months. They do not fray like many others on here do, but simply just stop working. My old iPhone 4 cables still work and have been used heavily for years. Apple--you should be ashamed of this and make it right with everyone who has supported your products over the years. This is unacceptable. Maybe Samsung's Galaxy line is the way to go. Peace and I'm out!

    THE LAST APPLE PRODUCT I WILL EVER BUY

With most, if not all Apple devices now using this cable APPLE HAVE A MAJOR PROBLEM THAT NEEDS ADDERSSING NOW. I am christmas shopping today for my two children, two of the latest tablets and two new phones ALL ON ANDROID, no more Apple

    The Worlds worst cable

    Don't buy this cable, in fact stick withe your apple products with the 30 pin adapters, I am onto my seconded cable in 1 month, my friends have had multiple cables, if you are unfortunate to have an apple product that requires a lightning cable please please save your money and buy elsewhere there are some good cables on amazon that are durable and more reliable so be wise, stop what your planning on doing and buy an unofficial apple cable, they really need to replace these cables with a more durable product and should discontinue this cable now.
