      Apple sinks to new low with these cords

      I paid a fortune for my cords because "off brand, inferior cords can ruin you iPhone" I was told by an AT&T rep. Well guess what? The Apple cords don't last.

      Terrible. Keep breaking and cost is ridiculous.

      I have been through so many lightning cables, I have lost count. At least five of these 1m ones (all broke) and third party ones are even worse. The Apple I have been through so many lightning cables, I have lost count. At least five of these 1m ones (all broke) and third party ones are even worse. The Apple cables cost way too much and are of appalling quality. It is galling to read the tiny number of positive reviews for this truly awful product saying that the problem is just because people don't take care of the cables. What offensive nonsense. They cost a lot of money and are a pain to replace, but they stop working even when carefully handled. The idea practically everyone else who has written a review is simply a careless idiot is not only rude, it is really quite dim. These cables have uber-delicate internal wires that seem to get disconnected very easily. The microchips in them require extra internal cables, so there is more to go wrong and it seems like the only design imperative was for it to be small. I'd rather something bigger that worked!! Third party cables frequently don't work and even those sold with 'Made for iPhone' approval and sold by Apple will frequently fail and many won't charge at all as the iPhone or iPad will claim that 'This accessory may not be supported' and then fail to charge. Of course, that's better than it exploding the phone if it really is dodgy, but come on! After having that issue with a LOT of third party cables, I bought more of these Apple ones and all but one have failed. It really is stunning why Apple allowed this problem to continue for so long and haven't apologised about it and still have made no promise to improve them. Of course, wireless and inbuilt solar charging would be great, but I'd settle for a cable that works. It is hard to know what to recommend as there aren't many alternatives that are very good either. That said, my Belkin one in my car has been OK for several months and has withstood being wound up and unwound repeatedly. My iPhone and iPad are a big part of my life, taking over ever more functions, and with services like Apple Pay we are placing ever more reliance on our Apple devices. If you run out of battery on the Tube in London, you could end up being overcharged if you can't touch out. If you were hoping to pay for a meal with your iPhone, you can't if it's not powered. Being able to charge the device up is so fundamental to being able to use these devices that I just can't see why this isn't being treated seriously. Wireless charging is long overdue and competitors are way ahead on that. I'm not going to upgrade my iPhone 6+ to the next model if it doesn't have wireless or a new type of cable. In the meantime, please stop selling these awful cables and switch to a toughened Lightning cable that is designed with some slack on the internal cables so they don't come detatched so easily! And please make it easier for third parties to make alternatives that are safe, cheap and reliable too. Luckily, my JBL speaker dock (cheap and v loud, highly recommended) does charge well (and has a USB port so can do your iPad at the same time if you can find a Lightning cable that works :-P ! It is truly infuriating that I'm now having to spend another £10-£20 on yet another cable. I could have paid for one year's access to Apple Music for the same amount I've spent on these ruddy things! I think I'll have to hope another Belkin one will be as sturdy as the one in my car!!! Come on Apple, my 128GB iPhone 6 Plus cost as much as a used car! Please make charging it more straightforward, less expensive and reliable! Pretty please?!

      Confused with the Complaining

      I guess I must be a gentle guy (NOT!) but out of the 6 iPhones I've bought in my life only one Apple-branded cable has ever failed me. Knockoffs and Amazon Bas I guess I must be a gentle guy (NOT!) but out of the 6 iPhones I've bought in my life only one Apple-branded cable has ever failed me. Knockoffs and Amazon Basics have failed me far more often.

      An Apple Between a Rock and a Hard Place.

      If I purchase an aftermarket cord, I take a chance that it may or may not work consistently. The Apple one will work every time, until it dies. The biggest comp If I purchase an aftermarket cord, I take a chance that it may or may not work consistently. The Apple one will work every time, until it dies. The biggest complaint from many reviewers is that the lifespan is too short and could be made to last longer if Apple invested time and money in exactly that. I am guessing that the cord revenue that Apple generates due to repeated cord purchases is quite substantial. Apple would likely miss out on much of this revenue if they improved on that product. I believe that many Apple customers get that. At what point do this same folks begin to distance themselves from the company because of an unnecessary, pricey, and easily fixable inconvenience. Other institutions have made the same mistake, and have paid for it later in lost profits due to bailing customers. I could see some parachutes deploying in some of the reviews. In short, quality made products keep folks coming back.

      Durability lacking, inconsistent product.

It is something with Apple and accessories made rather ch I have had many of these cables over the years. The durability of such seems to always be the problem. It is something with Apple and accessories made rather cheaply. They are quite weak around the point where it connects to your phone. Making sure it is always straight as much as possible can help. I have found discoloration, corrosion, fraying, compound breaks through the protective litter layer, the metal connection snap off, or it does not charge with little sign of physical defect. It might be a major selling strategy to have you replace these so often, but it is rather annoying and I would pay a fair share more for it to last longer or be able to withstand a bit more from regular use. Honestly, I have had way cheaper devices and phones that I have used just as much. They were older and out of date, but their cables always seemed to last many years. Apple, seems to be cutting some corners for profit, and it really shows.
