    Apple’s Worst Product

    • Written by Yasmin G from Ipswich

    I’m a loyal iPhone user. But the chargers are ridiculous, at the smallest wrong move when it’s connected to your phone it snaps inside the phone (happened to me multiple times in fact). And for price, you wouldn’t think you need to be buying multiple chargers a year - let alone the price you just payed for your phone or iPad.

    In conclusion - Apple please change your chargers, thank you.

    Overpriced and poor quality.

    • Written by Neeleigh S from market harborough

    I can’t count how many usb cables I have gone through with an average lifespan of less than 6 month. Where it is frayed wires or the lightning end snapping, the overall quality is appalling for the price. Apple must know this and yet they continue to produce a sub-standard product for a premium price. I have tried other brands but whilst some work initially and are more stronger and more durable, inevitably Apple control the market by making their devices “incompatible” to other brands. I love my Apple devices but seriously Apple, sort out the accessories or allow us the option to choose alternatives that are better and far cheaper.

    Stopped working after 3 months.

    The charger is not bent at all. I’ve been extra careful as the three other Apple chargers I have broke suddenly after buying. It just stopped working although in good condition.

    stops working

    • Written by Margaret R from Liverpool

    miraculously, for the first time ever the cable did not split at the top by the lighting part of the cable. however out of the blue it has just stopped charging my phone, tried plugging it into different outlets but nothing, was charging my phone fine during the night, but when i went to try and charge my phone later in the afternoon it wasn't even recognising the cable.
    every other apple cable has split at the end, never had a good experience.

    A longstanding weak point

    • Written by Andrew S from BURGESS HILL

    A really poor implementation of a vital cable.

    Somehow it manages to be both inflexible and fragile. The cable itself probably rates 2 stars but apple’s attitude to warranty knocks another off. Experienced the often reported splitting problem despite the cable being in a ‘static’ setting, warranty invalid as it is deemed ‘mechanical damage’.

    I usually stick with official products but these cables are poor so I’d advise getting a certified cable elsewhere.

    Breaks too easily

    • Written by Tim H from Richmond

    I keep having to replace these cables, I find they become faulty easily. This is particularly annoying as they are very expensive for what they are.

    Overall, a bit of a shame given Apple's usual attention to detail and build quality.

    Rip off, and useless

    • Written by Jake L from Newton aycliffe

    Absolute piece of garbage. I've had to switch to android which use USB-C which is 100 times better. Ive probably spent over £300 on these cables to find them not charging the devices, or breaking after 2 hours of use. Please avoid these cables as they are nothing than utter garbage. Why hasn't apple scrapped this accessory and gone to USB-C yet?? AVOID!

    This charger works really well! I only need a new one because I travel with it a lot and my friend has broken my current one, it lasted me a year and a couple of months so can’t complain too much. Will need to order a new one as soon as though because at the minute my phone is saying that it may not be supported which after a year of using it baffles me as it’s worked fine till today (12/11/2018).

    the charger works fine with my iPhone at first but very soon after it breaks. this is the forth charger I have brought now in one and a half years, for the price I am paying for the phone alone, never mind the charger, I would expect better quality and for it to work for at least a year if not more.

    No problems

    • Written by Graham S from Cullompton

    I visited this site to buy another charger cable so that I could use it separately from the charger on my computer. I have had my original charger cable for three or four years, used daily, and have never has one fail. I do not understand what people do with their cables to make them fail. I was surprised to read some of the reviews. My experience has been nothing but excellent.

    Isn’t working

    • Written by Jodie W from Bathgate

    I always believe in buying Apple products as they last. However I bought this cable last month as a replacement to my original Apple iPhone cable that had died a death. However this already isn’t working and hasn’t been working very well for a couple weeks and now it just point blank refuses to charge any device
