    As you can see, the rubberized cable is coming away from the connector end slightly, still works, iPad 3 and still under warranty.

    Do I have to make a genius appt or could I just walk in and get it exchanged?


    other side ok...

    Hi Ragdoll, I had the same problem where the cord was fraying, so I went to the Apple store in Jax. Fl and they just gave me a new one without hesitation. I hope you are near an Apple store where you can do the same. 

    I didn't have such luck with an easy exchange when I had the same issue. So annoying! My friend actually told me about this stuff called SuGru. It's a 'new self-setting rubber for fixing, modifying and improving your stuff.' Really handy stuff & has excellent reviews of what its capable of.

    You'll only need a little bit for this iPad cable fix; just an alternative if you can't get a replacement easily.
