      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?!

      Terrible product

      Would give 0 stars if possible. These are just awful. I must have spent in excess of £100 on cables just over the past two months no word of a lie. I accept tha Would give 0 stars if possible. These are just awful. I must have spent in excess of £100 on cables just over the past two months no word of a lie. I accept that products aren't always perfect first time but this is quite evidently an ongoing widespread issue so I'm wondering if it's ever going to be addressed and resolved? At this point I'm honestly considering switching to a Samsung when my contract runs out which is a shame as I much prefer the iPhone but the cable issue is just too infuriating and not something customers should still be having to deal with.

      Awful design, over priced and breaks easily.

      Apple I love your products but I have to say your charge leads are awful. They break easily they are over priced and they are not long enough.

When you have multiple Apple products and family members using them you begin to realise how bad they are. Standard Usb leads work fine..

      Once again disappointed

      Like everyone else, my leads keep breaking! I purchased my third cable in a year (2 metre ong as the standard is impossibly short) at the end of December. It Like everyone else, my leads keep breaking! I purchased my third cable in a year (2 metre ong as the standard is impossibly short) at the end of December. It is now the beginning of February and it has already broken in less than two months! Expensive and unreliable! Deeply disappointed with Apple and the quality and price of their products.

      I've had to replace my lead because it had deteriorated so much

      First of all why is the lead so short? Secondly when you try to tidy away it's next to impossible to wrap up. Neither I consider unreasonable requirements. Ever First of all why is the lead so short? Secondly when you try to tidy away it's next to impossible to wrap up. Neither I consider unreasonable requirements. Every single other manufacturer of wires don't produce there's like this, nor are they white which I guess is personal taste. They also have a unique plug, so you are unable to buy alternative.
