    Total rubbish, this needs to be improved

    $29 for a cable that breaks in around 2 months. This is not an over exaggeration at all. The rubber on the cable just falls to bits and then after a while it stops working at all. Apple, have you ever heard of a braided cable? They don’t fall apart, start making braided cables please or look into a material to surround the cable that doesn’t fall apart. Also the actual lighting cable plastic surround cracks as well.

    Summary - do not buy this cable, it is a total waste of money and you better off with a cable from the 99 cense store, it actually last longer believe it or not!

    Worse cable EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have to replace at least one cable every year for the past 10 years when I ask people who work in the apple store why their cable are so bad, their answer was I was not supposed to use the phone when it is charging, really?

    Do not buy these cables for iPad Air 2!!!

    I have been a very happy Apple customer until now. I have bought many generations of many Apple products from the Nano to Macbooks to the iPhone 3 to 7 Plus. I have kept my original cables and chargers and they all still work great. I bought the longer 2m Lightning-USB cables because I was concerned I was going to short out these shorter original cables. So I buy two of the 2m length Lightning-USB to supplement my originals and use my original charging block. Essentially the 2m works great with my iPhone 7 and I am pleased with it in that aspect. However, my iPad Air 2 says "not charging" regardless what I do. The website here does say it's compatible with this older iPad. However the 1m cable with the same original charger block does still work. These 2m cables simply do not work in the iPad Air 2.

    Power not !!!!!

    I’m switching phones, due to Apple not being able to make or not willing to make durable cords... I’m tired of buying multiple cords and buying cords that are not recognized by apple ..... RIDICULOUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bad Cable

    Bought one of these cause they are longer, but let me tell you its a waste of money. Within the first week, I already saw wear within the cable. 6 months later I have to buy another cable...and I tired to salvage it. You think six months is long? It's not. The original cable I had when I got my phone lasted for a year and some months, and could of went on longer until someone stole mine. Like others this cable is bad. One star.

    My fairly new Cable does not work...

    So when I originally bought the cable i was glad, thinking finally they have a longer cable and after a while of using the cable I realize my phone battery wasn't being charged, then noticed it just stopped working all together, whether being plugged into the wall, by computer or even portable battery.

    I don't have a receipt, as i bought it sometime ago, but will be marching into a store tomorrow and demanding a replacement as this is fairly ridiculous, the cost for the cable is outrageous to begin with and now it doesn't work? UNACCEPTABLE,

    DO NOT BUY THIS CABLE STICK TO THE 1METER CABLE!!!!! You have been warned!!!

    Do Not Buy!

    I am seriously shocked. I got this cord for Christmas, just over a month ago. It already has stopped working. Absolutely nothing is wrong with the cord, it still looks brand new but no longer will charge a phone. I thought buying the actual Apple version versus a knockoff that this surely would not happen. And knowing Apple, i'd have to jump through 10 hoops to try to get a new one and would be out of luck with no receipt since it was a gift.

    Bought <6 months

    Paid a premium price for an accessory to ensure best possible performance (vs. buying cheaper non-Apple). And...it doesn't work. $29 for a cord!

    terrible quality

    why can't apple make better products for the money they charge? Customers have been complaining about the cable quality for years and apple never gives a ear about customer views

    So disappointed.

    I bought this cord even with the poor reviews, thinking maybe the others were in the habit of pulling the cord out of the electric source by yanking on the cord only. I have had the cord 4 months. EVERY time I removed it from the source I have removed it by the "collar" for lack of a better word. It simply quit working. No kinks, no rough manipulation. I guess I will go with whatever "knock off" that is rated well by amazon. Really, Apple? So disappointed.

    Poor quality, not durable

    Other after market lightning cables have more choice in color, style and materials, they are much more durable and flexible than the Apple. Apple charges more but sadly giving poorer quality cable easily broken. Apple, please improve!!

    No problems with Apple cable I bought

    Purchased Apple 2m cable and adaptor over a year ago with new iPad Pro. Not had any problem with it. I tend to leave cable plugged in to adaptor and just plug other end into iPad when needed. I think if you handle it gently it shouldn’t come apart as some people have experienced. I also bought a 1m cable and adaptor from another company to use elsewhere. Yes, it was cheaper but I find the cable too short to plug in directly to wall socket if I want to use iPad whilst it’s charging. Have to plug in to an extension socket. Also the cheaper one takes ages to fully recharge the iPad even when not in use. I suppose you get more reviews from unhappy customers to complain and there are many more satisfied customers who don’t bother to send a review.

    Weak design

    You have be extremely gentle with these, if you get a slight kink in the end it will fail. Going to try the Anker brand 6’ cable, 5 star reviews on those. These also do not work correctly with a 12 watt charger. You have to unplug and plug it back in the wall every time you plug in the phone. The 3’ cable works fine. Never had this issue with mini USB, even cheap ones. I would avoid and go with a good brand aftermarket for less money.

    I can’t afford this

    I lost count of how many of these I’ve gone through. I can’t afford to keep buying these. I’m pretty sure I’m going back to Samsung. Their chargers don’t break every month. For how expensive Apple products are, their chargers should be durable or free.

    WHY?

    Why does an industry leader have such difficulty producing a durable USB cable? I resent having to refresh my supply due to poor construction. However, the greatest annoyance was finding a wonderful compatible cable that my iPad eventually deemed not compatible, rendering it useless.

    Weak out of the box

    I just bought 2 of these, along with 2 new 12w chargers. I thought one of the chargers was defective when I plugged in my iPad & it said "not charging". I changed the cable to the shorter 3ft cable & it worked fine. When I used this longer cable to charge my iPhone X, it took almost twice as long. Terrible quality.

    Apple needs to improve this urgently

    I was forced to purchase another 2m iPad cable approximately three months ago, it has already started to fray and I will need to replace it yet again! iPads are premium products and yet the charger quality seem no better than something I would buy at a thrift shop. This is disgraceful, whilst I am sure this increases the profit margin for the company, heavy users of their iPads (like myself) are being pressed. I depend on my iPad as a disabled person I can't get out and about, I certainly shouldn’t have to (and can’t afford to) keep replacing such an essential part of kit!
