    Poor quality

    I have now bought multiple of these cables (2m and 1m lengths). They are so expensive for such cheap quality. They keep fraying near the lightening connector, exposing the wire. Apple won't even replace these under warranty. Staff at Apple Store act surprised that this issue ever happens, and put it down to improper use (i.e. using iPhone and iPad while charging). Yet there are so many reviews that point out how flawed and faulty these cables are. Disappointed that this quality issue and the Apple staff reaction is such a let down to Apple's reputation.

    It works...

    As an Apple consumer since 1983, I'm accustomed to paying a premium for Apple products whether I like it or not. I've tried aftermarket cables for Apple products and found them to be less reliable than the Apple brand. Granted, the Apple cables themselves don't seem to last as long as they should but until Apple goes completely wireless for charging, there isn't much else we can do.

    Terrible product....

    It isn't worth paying Apple's mark up to buy this product when any cheap, compatible cable can't be any worse. The casing shreds, exposing the wire inside. It get sharp and stabby. Totally awful. Do not recommend it all.

    I'm over apple

    It's one thing to make cheap, weak cables and charge top dollar for them. It's another to program your software to reject knock offs that are probably just as good if not better than yours. These raggedy cables, plus the fact that I have had THREE Iphones completely DIE on me in 5 years means that THIS is my last IPhone. LAST. Keep your raggedy cables, your defective batteries, your phones that just up and stop making phone calls and not even your own shops put any effort into troubleshooting. the answer is always... SPEND MORE MONEY.

    Nope, no more donations to your shareholders. Good Luck.

    Seriously Apple?! Fix these things!!

    We pay hundreds for iPhones, ipads, Apple watches etc and we get left with these things that work for the first 6 months then they start to fall apart and stop working. It's a joke. It's not hard to make a working cable that doesn't fall apart after a couple months! I've had my iPhone 6 Plus for almost 2 years and I've had to buy 5 cables and 2 for my iPad Pro aswell! It's a joke and they aren't cheap! I think after paying hundreds for a product we should atleast get a working cable!!!

    Cable design options/ideas

    TIM COOK and APPLE CABLE DESIGNERS!!!
    Like all reviewers I too am dissappointed in you. :(
    Make up your mind. Which do you care most of? The environment or profits? If it's the environment by all means! Please! Make the wires from a sturdier material as well as the rubbers covering the wires at each end of the cable from a sturdier material to grab on. Imagine big, wide, fingers-thumbs grabbing the cables from either ends. Make those ends/reinforcements from a longer/wider much sturdier material. I am willing to pay more for that rather than keep having to toss your very poorly designed cables. I will purchase one more cable and if that one doesn't last me longer than the one I have I'm seriously considering switching to competitors that make better sturdier cables.
    Thank you for reading!

    RIDICULOUS! I JUST BOUGHT A CORD AND IT HAS ONCE AGAIN STOPPED WORKING.

    With a price tag of almost 30.00 you would expect it to last longer???

    Rubbish

    This is the 5th cable I will be buying since having my new phone in September. They are awful, constantly break and aren't even at a reasonable price making replacing them even more annoying. I hope one day you will make a charger that will not just work, but work for a long time because so far that is only in my dreams.

    Dreadful.

    This is truly awful. After about 3 months the plastic at the lightning end comes off and the wires start to fray and pull out rendering it useless. I have gone through about 9 of these since Jan 2015. It's not a case of 'being careful' when pulling the wire out, it seems any contact with the lightning be weakens it.

    A Little Extra Comes a Long Way

    As we all know, a little extra comes a long way. This Cable comes by default with the iPad Pro. I was amazed with the length and thought this cable is needed for those laying in bed on the phone moments. A lot of you reading this have probably had the struggle where you want to be comfy but the charger doesn't reach. This helps out (at a reasonable length) with those problems. And on the plus side it is made by Apple for YOUR Apple Products. That means quick charging and reliable charging. Don't forget that Apple is also environmentally conscious and has removed the items that can harm the environment.

    Not worth $29 if it breaks so easy

    My cables break in the same place every time. At the neck where the wire connects into the pin head. Speaking of pin head...why am I bothering to buy yet another lighting cable from you when I can pay $10 for one that lasts just as long? Yah I'm done with this.

    Three months later and not working

    I honestly care for my apple products, i still have my ipod nano 1st generation working, and a macbook pro 15" 2012 model almost new from outside to inside. I bought nine months ago a brand new iphone se rose gold. earphones great, cable not functioning two to three months later... i tried it in many devices and different places in my house, the power adapter works fine with anything... the issue is obviously with the cable. I bought a cheap one and as it is cheap was not a good option... i took my brothers cable and is perfect, i believe is not original from apple, but it is old though.
    People make please high quality cables as the computers ones, strong, durable and hard end connections.
    I don't even bend or twist it... C'mon

    Poor Quality

    I'm writing this review to join the other voices and to make a statement to Apple. You need to improve your power cables Apple. I am on my sixth cable!!

    I agree with everything the other reviewers have said and I echo their sentiments. If anybody knows of a better quality substitute cable, please tell us and we can all stop buying the Apple cables.

    Not durable but pretty

    If you are buying one of these for durability then get ready to hate it.

    If you are buying one of these as a fashion statement then prepare to get years of use.

    It's a good thing that Android phones have historically had no competition from Apple in the high end because no one would buy an iPhone to have to deal with their lackluster cables.

    Yep, these fail within 6 months of use...

    You would think that Apple would apply the same quality to their cables as they do their product lineup...Apple, PLEASE improve the durability of these cables near the point of insertion(failure point).

    USB Cable (2m)

    Reading all the reviews and I am really surprised. The cables last me for years. Up until my baseboard heater destroyed one, I had 3 cables from my old phones and iPad. All worked. My husband took over my iPhone 4 (way over a year ago) & that cable is doing fine as well. The only thing ridiculous about them is the price.

    Mine lasted years!

    My cable has lasted years. If you hold the part that plugs into the phone rather than the wire, then your charger will last 10 times longer.
