      Seriously APPLE?! Fix the problem!

      As with the majority of the reviews this product is far subpar. I enjoy Apple products as much as the. Ext person but these light ing cord are rediculous. I hav As with the majority of the reviews this product is far subpar. I enjoy Apple products as much as the. Ext person but these light ing cord are rediculous. I have had my iPhone 5 since it came out and it works fine dispite use and abuse plus an otterbox... So i guess thanks Otterbox! But these cords are useless. Every one from apple has broken within months and all third-party chargers that stay together end up quiting and i get an "accessory not supported" message after using the stupid thing for weeks every single day with no issues. All i can figure is ur updates mess up the connection somehow. I would glad to pay more for a charger if it worked longer than a few months, even though I think $20 is too much for a flippin charger... I want quality over quantity and will pay for it if I have to.

      0 Star is the real rating

      Charge cables are never an issue with any of my other audio or video equipment. NEVER.

I'm a pro in video production so at any given moment I have a dozen or two pieces of equipment to keep powered and charged. Charge cables are ALWAYS an issue with any Apple product be it laptop, phone or tablet. Poor design, poor quality control, and obviously engineered to fail often. Seems desperate to me that the second most valuable company in the world must supply poor quality and then REQUIRE their licensed inferior design to carry 5v at 2amps through 2 conductors frequently unsuccessfully. Shame.

      Terrible Product

The rubber that protects the cord is tearing, and revealing the wire within the cable. Also, the USB Cable will not charge my phone so I have to position it correctly intruder to charge my phone. Im tired of buying new cables every month and I suggest that Apple should make there cables out of a better material so it does not tear.

      Apple Diminishing their Brand for no reason

      Why Apple pays such close attention to their products, yet continues to package these chintzy charging cords with theirs devices is unfathomable. I mean I Why Apple pays such close attention to their products, yet continues to package these chintzy charging cords with theirs devices is unfathomable. I mean I saw Jony Ive essentially bragging to Charlie Rose about precision in the new Apple HQ, where even the area unseen by building patrons is kept tidy and presentable, yet these cords break apart quickly and Apple had done nothing to fix the issue. I truly do not understand.

      Work great!

Replaced one under warranty during the first year for an intermittent incompatible error message that turned out to be due to an iOS issue, which was later solved. Since then, they have performed flawlessly (but the white surfaces have become a bit dirty so prefer to have a black color option). So, in my long-term experience, these work quite well and I recommend them for routine use.

      PIECE OF TRASH

      I opened my new iPhone 8 plus day before yesterday. This morning, I took out this chord so I could charge my phone and play music in my car. THE CHORD DOESNT WO I opened my new iPhone 8 plus day before yesterday. This morning, I took out this chord so I could charge my phone and play music in my car. THE CHORD DOESNT WORK. It charges my phone for 3 seconds and then stops and repeats this process for as long as I have it plugged in. Y'all are wack for selling this garbage to people and now I have to schedule a trip to the apple store located in the non stop traffic jam that is clybourn, north avenue, and halsted. THANKS LOTS APPLE. I only gave this one star because zero is not an option.
