    Idk if this has been brought up yet, but I feel as if the lead connectors are exposed somewhat. I feel like when I put it in my backpack or carry it around its going to scrape or scratch and eventually mess up the connector. I would have liked if it would have came with maybe a plastic cap to cover it (of course many would lose it) It being my only lightning cable since there are none in retail stores, I would hate to ruin it cause I would be without my iPhone

    your thoughts?

    I am pretty sure apple thought about that before leaving it "exposed"

    They probably thought about maps and anodizing too. :) But I'm not worried about this one.

    was thinking the same. Just paranoid about it I guess. If that brakes I am screwed just like everyone else

    Just order a bunch of cheap ones off of ebay. They work just as well as Apple's.

    Apple has been good about replacing old frayed 30 pin cables. If you have a lightning cable that failed due to normal wear, I bet they'll take care of you.

    Yes, but you can't get it replaced immediately. If the genuine apple one fails, it's good to have a backup cable so that you won't be without a phone until you can get to the apple store.

    I doubt it will fail anytime soon. And soon enough they'll have a surplus of chargers.

    Stores have them. I got two yesterday at the apple store. Ordered online and did store pickup.

    They should have given it a rubber foreskin that retracts when you push the connector in to the phone. :D

    Same here. My local store has scads of them. It's the adapters that are in short supply here.

    That's genius!:eek:

    Though if Apple used that and patented it, Apple would probably sue every uncircumcised male for infringing on their patent.
