    Not durable

    I am just about to order my 4th cable in 2 1/2 years. Last year a 2m cable was £25, this year it's £29.
    The one I am using at present is a 2m cable and the casing has split.
    Prior to this I had a 1m cable, the wire was obviously damaged and it started smoking, so I binned it, quickly!

    Great but still flimsy

    Just got a new lightning cable today and the older one I had lasted me for a while, it is a great product but the quality could be better and the durability is ok but just be careful

    The Length is perfect....quality not so much

    I was so excited when I purchased this cord because of the length. I made sure not to take the cord with me because I knew people would want it. I took excellent care of my charger as if it were my phone itself and it let me down after 6-8 months. I began to unravel but it still worked. At this point the entire top has exposed wires and doesnt work at all....so here I am....buying yet another $30 charger but keeping my receipt this time. Because obviously apple gives 0 cares about all the horrible reviews pertaining to their product. Makes me wonder why we keep spending sooooo much money with them.

    Cheaply made, not cheap to buy

    This cord stopped working months ago due to it wearing down and exposing wires. I haven't even had it a year but I can't bring it in because I no longer have the receipt so I taped it with electrical tape. That helped for a little while. Now I'm paying another $30 plus shipping for a stupid charging cable.

    Garbage cables

    Every charge cable in my household has split or frayed. Your products are quickly becoming garbage. Keep it up...I'm sure another company will love my money. Unfortunately I can't rate your product a zero.

    Piece of Junk Lightning Cable

    I am on my third lightning cable of the year and, again, this one has frayed terribly at the end that connects to my phone. Apple! Why aren't you addressing this issue?!? I would think the frayed cables would be a fire hazard. Another one in the garbage . . . .

    Doesn't last that long!!

    I keep buying these cables but they don't last. The end of the cable that connects to my iphone has cracked and is falling apart exposing the wires. I love my iphone but these accessories are costing me a lot more money than they should because I have to replace them.

    Apple, do you care?

    Dear Apple,
    Do you know why I am on your website? No? It's ok, I'll tell you. I am ordering yet another cable. Why oh why is this still an issue? Wrap some hard cable, electrical, tape, heck-even some duct tape around those cables! You have the best and brightest creators but seriously, they aren't working on the cables. You can't promote the best phones and sell them with less than stellar cables. Well, I guess you can and you are....and people like me have to keep buying them. Yes, I know you say I can send them back if they are under warranty. I shouldn't have to! Please, I'm begging you....fix this!

    Should Be More Durable

    When I first got this cable, I loved it. The extra meter was awesome. However, even though I treated it very well/was very careful with it, the cable became frayed at the end and now has exposed wiring. I always treat all of my Apple products very well, and I usually have nothing but good things to say, but it's upsetting to have to go out and drop another $30 to replace it.

    Excelete cable to charge Iphone and Ipad

    Although I do not speak English, I'll try to leave my experience with this cable. I am using 3 wires of this model all day long. more than 3 years and I have never had a problem. I've used with the iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2 and Iphone 6 and Iphone 6S Pluss and I have NEVER had a problem. It is very comfortable to use. I can move and do work while charge the device. I recommend it to everyone who needs it.

    Coating on cable cracked after less than a year, exposing the wiring inside

    The length of this cable is perfect for me to use my iPhone to read in bed while simultaneously keeping the phone charged on the power board under the bed. However the coating cracked at less than a year old, and has exposed the wiring inside. It still works though.

    Very Poor Quality

    I would not mind buying these if the quality was improved...even just mediocre would be better than nothing. Or I suppose if the price was less than half of what it currently is. Either way I expect better from Apple and I have better things to be spending $45 on. I don't just use one cable for each device either, I have them in every room and at work so from a ware perspective, these cables are a bit of a money pit. I would be afraid to count how many of these I've purchased in the last few years, but it would be dozens between the online store, the Apple Store, those that came with the products and other various retailers that sell genuine Apple cables. Apple's products are extremely expensive to begin with, so one would hope that required accessories would be of a much higher quality or less cost prohibitive.

    Best Cable for your iPhone

    I have 2 of these cables and they are the best. They seem thicker than the short length cables and they are in perfect condition. Honestly, if people take care of their products and unplug and plug them in properly (holding the actual plug and not the cable) they will last forever.

    Good quality cable

    I have two of these (used in different places), they are about a year old and I haven't had any problems with either. The 2m cables are slightly heavier duty than the 1m and to me look well made and fairly strong. Apart from myself my wife and daughter have also used Apple products for many years and have never had a cable fray or fail - I have had one iPad charger that died though. The only time I've had to replace a cable is after my daughter lost one.

    I only ever pull from the plug - never, ever the cable. I also sometimes use my iPad whilst it's charging (so my cables do get movement).

    I don't work for Apple and I'm not paid for this review.

    Very disappointed

    I wish I could have given a positive review but unfortunately I've had the same issue as pretty much most of the other people who have posted a review. I brought my iPad Pro last November and it came with the 2m cable which I was very happy about initially. However that happiness barely lasted 9 months which was when the cable completely stopped working. When negative comments far outweigh positive ones you would think it would be a cue for Apple to do something about it.

    Fav Charger, 2.0m lightning

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
    Before this charger I would buy a third party charger every 3 months, even the apple cords that i would stumble upon i would manage to break.. Then I found this long charger at apple and gave it a try. I took real good care of my charger (wrapping it up instead of shoving it in a bag) and it is finally giving out almost 3.5 years later! My dog has ran into it ripping it out of my charging phone at least 10+ times, I have yanked it forgetting it is even charging way to many times to admit, etc! If you can take care of your cord and try to not use your phone at all while it is charging, your cord will last you MUCH longer than the smaller cords!

    It is much more durable too, thicker even. I bought one for my boyfriend as he rips through chargers every second month, and this one is just reaching a full year. Beyond happy with this product!
