    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

    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!

    Substandard quality

    Like all our iPhone charger cables from Apple this also broke through to the metal within app. 12 month... annoying!
    Substandard ....Will look for quality 3rd party supplier

    Yep.. here we go again.

    These cables are the worst. Horrible! I have to replace these charger cables (regardless of which length) every couple of months. A complete ripoff!!! I LOVE Apple and my Apple products... EXCEPT the cables!!! They either stop working for no reason after about 10 uses, or the wrinkle near the end that plugs into your product (which happens ALL the time... it's inevitable!) will make the cable split open and expose wires. TERRIBLE.

    Absolute Rip Off

    £700 for my phone and £25 every time this product breaks. You all know the problem so I won't bore you. Just an awful design. I'm furious.

    Lightning to USB Cable (2 m)

    This cord is sturdy and has held up very well. I ordered one in 2015 and it still works great. Ordering an additional one for the office.

    Great quality

    As I seen so many 1 star reviews, I thought I might make a mistake buying one, but after a few months of use I can see that people are "bad quality" and not the product instead... So for those who are looking to buy a longer cable then the one provided in the devices boxes, you can surely get this one as it is the same quality!

    Better buy 0.5m USB Cable

    I bought this cable last year for 29€ and today I noticed that was broken. It is my second cable in the last 20 months!! It's very disappointing because I took care of them... Don't buy it! THIS IS NOT APPLE QUALITY!!!

    Terrible quality. Not durable in any way.

    The cable jacket, that is the white rubber that goes around the wire of the cable, is simply utter rubbish. It is the thinnest of rubber, kinda like stretched chewing gum. All other wires are made of pvc, whilst Apple uses thin rubber. The cable will last, at most for 5-6 months before failing completely. The people that are saying that the cables last years, know as well as I do that this is not true. The cable is of the lowest standard of quality I have seen on any wire and for the price charged this is absolutely appalling. The wire is marketed for portable products, therefore, it should be designed in a way that is built to last. It should not be the case that a slight turn of the wire causes the rubber jacket to fray. I am starting to believe that the cables are designed in such a poor quality so that, along with Apples restrictions on third party wires, you have to buy a new one every since months. I find it simply appalling giving customers this wire with 600 to 700 products.
