This Apple product used to be terrible, but I now highly recommend it

Love the company or hate it, Apple is renowned for quality. But there was one Apple product that was terrible.

I am, of course, talking about iPhone charging cables.

I’ve lost count of how many I’ve repaired, and how many have crossed the rainbow bridge to Silicon Heaven. Now, they were much better than the cheap rubbish you can buy from online retailers such as eBay or Amazon, but Apple iPhone cables weren’t good. They frayed, broke, and even seemed susceptible to corrosion.

However, for the past couple of years I’ve been using Apple’s USB-C-to-Lightning cable for the iPhone, and I have to say that I’m impressed with them. It took a long time for official third-party USB-C-to-Lightning to appear, so some of my cables have been in use since early 2016.

And here’s an odd thing — none have broken. In fact, I’ve got one that I know has been in almost continuous daily use since 2017 that looks like new, and another that’s spent all of its time in the car — baking in the sun, freezing in winter — that is also like new.
