Anyone's lightning cable coming apart?

Went to unplug my iPhone 5 this morning and the tip housing pulled apart revealing the wired connection to the lightning tip on the cable. It slides back up but then loosens again when unplugging.

Anyone seeing this?

Just get it replaced by apple! Things break, your under warranty for a year to have them fixed.

Same thing happened to me yesterday. Here's a pic: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A4xXv_kCUAAgkAE.jpg

Just took it into the store and they replaced it. If it wasn't in warranty, I would have just glued it as suggested above. But for something that costs $21, Apple can replace it.
I agree.
You pay an arm and a leg for it.
Better not be like the Chinese cheap cables.
Apples are so much better and never break or mulfunction you know:D
