    Hi all,
    The dreaded split cable finally happened to my 5s charger wire this morning. From what I can tell, only the outer insulator has torn. Is it safe for me to just tape it? Really don't want to pay £15 for a new cable! Any other alternative suggestions would be appreciated!
    Many thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'm out of warranty, do you think it's worth going to an Apple store and seeing if they'll give me a free replacement cable? Long shot I guess..

    It's worth a shot to try. You never know.
