    Cheaply made cords

    • Written by Amber M from Victorville

    We have gone threw 6 or more these charging cords in the years of owning an iPhone . They always split right near the charging port that connects in the phone . I’m very displeased that after all these years they have not made these cords any more durable . We buy very expensive iPhones and they can’t even make a cord that last ? And charge $20 just to replace the dang thing ? My family now shares two cords over 4 phones.

    This is the second charging cord I’ve had that has split close to where it plugs into the phone, and wires are exposed. I’ve had many iPhones and the last two cords I’ve had have done this. The quality just isn’t there anymore.

    Tear up easy

    • Written by David C from Abingdon

    They easily tear up. Don’t last long. I had my iPhone for a year and went through at least 6 chargers.

    I brought 2 cables from Apple within months they are damaged. How though? Because my wire is all in contact and my phone just doesn’t want to charge. Popping up with “this item may not be accessible.” And I know full well 100% it’s an apple charger and not some cheap scam. I brought it from an APPLE STORE. What is wrong with your chargers? Please fix them. The don’t last long so you might as well buy one from Poundland or something that lasts about the same but so much cheaper. Not worth your money.

    Worst in Accessories

    • Written by Chirag J from Yiwu

    I have been a very avid user of Apple products, but the original accessories never last long. Cheap Knock Offs from China last longer then these original chargers. I just use 1 cable in 1 location only, i.e I have separate cables for my car, office and home uses, and take very good care for my accessories, still I am forced to keep changing my charging cables every few months. I hope Apple considers these problems seriously and develop a charger cable which is more reliant and longer lasting.

    I read a lot of bad reviews. But had no choice but to order them. The cheaper ones from amazon weren’t lasting. That was about 2 months ago and my cables are still going strong. I think other ppl just need to learn how to take care of their s***.

    Cord is only 18 inches long

    • Written by Lynne S from Tucson

    No where in the product description does it say that the cord is only 18 inches long. The original cord was 3 feet. It doesn't even reach from the usb port on my computer to the desktop.

    Works great!

    • Written by Jacob W from Olive Branch

    This cable has not once failed me. I have taken these in and out of bags and have them everywhere. A lot of people say these cables fray a lot, but it hasn't failed me. Also, I've had them for many years.

    Great size, great product, mediocre price

    • Written by Connor M from Gladstone

    I mean it's Apple, that's a fact. The 0.5 m Lightning USB cable is great for connecting an iPad for Duet Display or charging an iPhone on the go. Would highly recommend for anyone who likes to go all-Apple.

    Apple Diminishing their Brand for no reason

    • Written by Michael N from Arlington

    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!

    • Written by Peter D from Scottsdale

    I have been using two of these cables daily for the past 5 years. 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.

    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.

    It works great

    • Written by Vicki L from Crystal

    If those of you who gave a negative review would have read the description and called a rep you would have noticed it's not as thick nor as long as a regular one. These are primarily made for use in a vehicle so they aren't as long nor do they have the thickness. I have the same lightning charger for my phone as I had when the first one came. It is still in great shape and it's been through hades and back, including having a cat that wanted to chew it. This says it is 0.5 m. The others don't. This works great for charging in my car and not having a cord so long. And the charging cable that comes with their products is nice and long unlike other brands. If it's given you a not supported message it is probably what you are plugging it into to get power NOT their own cable. Oh, learn to spell.

    Horrible cable from apple

    • Written by Kirene R from Easy Stroudsburg

    This is like the 5th time I have to buy a cable. I am so upset about the waste of money. Yet, I have to buy it from apple because when you give other non-apple kinds a try they tend to fail after a while too.

    Very disappointing apple. What are you even doing about it?

    The Worst!

    • Written by Rachelle N from Floral Park

    As much as I love Apple, the company makes the most fragile accessories and cables. Of course, they are not standard so you have to order from them. They seem to break under normal use and I am always afraid that they will fray and break down.
    When you need to use your equipment it is stressful to find out that you can't charge something.

    Apple, start making better cables.
