    Good product, no issues!

    • Written by HELEN W from RUNCORN

    Bought my IMAC and accessories in December 2016 and only now am I having problems with the lead for my magic keyboard.
    In this day and age, tech lasting over 2 years is good!

    My cables have lasted me for ages. 2 years

    • Written by Shay S from Jarrow

    I am buying a new cable as my old cable’s rubber sleeve has ripped. It has done me well and I don’t know why everyone cries about their cables snapping because I’m very rough with my cables. Constantly pulling and bending them. I don’t see how mine haven’t broke yet. It’s simple don’t rag the cable about and it won’t snap. I learnt my lesson but seems like others would rather complain and repeat.

    Haven't had any problems so far

    • Written by Finlay M

    I've read plenty of reviews saying that Apple's Lightning cables are awful and break easily, but I honestly haven't had any problems with my cable so far, and I've had it for around 1.5 years, plugging it in far more frequently than most people would due to the not very long battery life of my iPod touch. To be honest, my cable looks almost just as good as it did when it was brand new.
    The only bad part of these cable are that they are slightly overpriced, but they're made by Apple, so that's probably why.

    Try it & see

    • Written by Christopher M from London

    There isn’t a bigger sceptic than me. I was 100% with the two for £5 brigade. I think over the years I’ve got through more of these moody ones than I can remember. Last Monday, I went into the local Apple shop & was heartbroken and having to part with nearly £30 nicka for one cable. The moody ones were getting so hot it did genuinely concern me. All the stories on hear about yes they’re wonderful or terrible. In my humble opinion, the difference in terms of manufacturing (being tangible I mean) the difference is remarkable. I’m in no way condoning the RRP for the product, how can a cable cost nearly £30 nicka which would cost no more at guesstimiation in the little people land 50p to produce. The quality is immediate once you open the box. We all know Apple is top draw & essentially you get what you pay for. It’s top quality & everything just works as we all know. The moody cables are more than likely made in the same sweatshop anyway. I’m not justifying their price in anyway, however I thing if treated more carefully & respect this should be ok for a few years. Why on earth would anybody wear a Rolex???? It’s essentially ostentatious & in your boat. I’d take Patek Philippe everyday.

    Best of what I used so far

    • Written by Houda A from Muscat

    I am using this cable since a year and no issues so far. Pleased with its length, made my phone usage comfortable that I don't have to stick close to the socket. I would recommend it.

    No problems with Apple cable I bought

    • Written by Lesley P from Harrogate

    Purchased Apple 2m cable and adaptor over a year ago with new iPad Pro. Not had any problem with it. I tend to leave cable plugged in to adaptor and just plug other end into iPad when needed. I think if you handle it gently it shouldn’t come apart as some people have experienced. I also bought a 1m cable and adaptor from another company to use elsewhere. Yes, it was cheaper but I find the cable too short to plug in directly to wall socket if I want to use iPad whilst it’s charging. Have to plug in to an extension socket. Also the cheaper one takes ages to fully recharge the iPad even when not in use. I suppose you get more reviews from unhappy customers to complain and there are many more satisfied customers who don’t bother to send a review.

    Mine lasted years!

    • Written by Caroline T from Bradford

    My cable has lasted years. If you hold the part that plugs into the phone rather than the wire, then your charger will last 10 times longer.

    Good quality cable

    • Written by Anonymous

    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.

    Great quality

    • Written by Bogdan R from Gravesend

    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!

    No issues with my 2m cable

    • Written by Dixie-Sonya D from ROCHDALE

    I actually never had an iPhone until the 6s came out. Too many said screen cracks and cables are expensive to buy when they break.

    For me I haven't had any troubles with my 2m cable and the cable that came with my iPhone. I'm buying a second cable because I left that at my aunties. My phone is charged perfectly fine, the cable hasn't even split considering I have had it 6months almost. There's been no problems with my battery life and I'm quite happy to purchase another one. I didn't even read the reviews before I purchased my first one.

    It's called trial and error. For me there are no errors with this cable. Just look after it as you would brushing your teeth everyday.

    Its a great cable

    • Written by Andrew B from London

    This is a really good cable as far as i can tell. It charges devices as well as you would expect and because its official you don't have to worry about those charging problems you sometimes get with 3rd party accessories. I use it for charging my iPad, the cable is long enough to go behind my desk and run across the top giving me lots of space to use my iPad. The build quality seems fairly good too although time will tell how long it really lasts.

    Don't be discouraged by all of these low 1 star reviews, if you take a closer inspection they appear to be fake and probably made by trolls.

    Great Cable!!

    • Written by Leanne N from Leicester

    After seeing so many 1 star reviews I thought I need to write a 5 star review.
    I brought my 2m charger lead 2 years ago and still working now, it goes everywhere with me, around the world, to work and back, in my car and still works perfectly, looks as good as new.
    Will 100% buy a new one when the time comes to change.

    Pricy but they last

    • Written by Mark B from OSWESTRY

    I always use genuine Apple cables now. I have had a few non-Apple ones that just didn't last.

    I've had this cable for a couple of years and it works perfectly. I use it every day at work and it is showing no signs of wear.

    I'm buying another today ...
