Hey all, I have an iPhone 5s. The original Apple cable is going strong - even with daily use (after two years). An older AmazonBasics cable is still fine after a year. Wanted to get some longer cables so I purchased two six-footers from Amazon and both of them failed after 8 weeks. Oddly enough - the newer cables seem to have a thicker design.... but apparently it doesn't help anything. According to the CS rep I spoke to he gets about a dozen calls a day about them failing (all the same story, after 1-2 months they just stop working). Ah well. If you are going for a new cable spend a little more and get a different brand. My old AmazonBasics works fine - but these new ones are just garbage. Update: Finally spoke to the right person and they gave me a refund. So at least there's that. Can anyone recommend any other good cable brands (aside from Apple OEM) ?
