So late last night, I chatted up Apple for a couple hours to get my iPhone 6 replaced as it was very slightly bent. After a long two and a half hour chat (poor guy I know), he grants an exception. Today, I go to the Apple Store, get it replaced with a brand new one without much hassle. I leave - turns out the phone wasn't activated so I go back to the Apple Store. They call Sprint, my carrier, pretty painless call. The associate that called ended up having a long, completely random talk with me about technology in general. Somehow, the cost of a lightning cable came up, after asking if I could get my leather case replaced. Turns out, it's $0.19¢ to manufacture a Lightning cable, although he wasn't sure if that included the box, etc. Jokingly asked if he knew the margins for any other products, he said no. That markup is insane though, thought I'd share.
