No it doesn’t. I don’t know what’s the deal with these comments that say oh sure, it’s the real thing, or they say theirs was in Apple packaging, etc. That isn’t my experience and it sounds the same for other people too. Maybe the people who sold them to Amazon are peppering in a few actual ones to throw people off a… No it doesn’t. I don’t know what’s the deal with these comments that say oh sure, it’s the real thing, or they say theirs was in Apple packaging, etc. That isn’t my experience and it sounds the same for other people too. Maybe the people who sold them to Amazon are peppering in a few actual ones to throw people off and get some decent comments. Mine purchased Nov 5, 2021 – this same cable that states on the page as sold and shipped by Amazon has absolutely no Apple serial numbers or other identifying information as it should per Apple website. If it does, I’m blind. Even with a magnifying glass, don’t see anything. It doesn’t appear to be Apple, nor Apple MFI certified.
It started falling apart about a month into using it and shortly noticed my Apple Pro started running hotter than usual on the back. It has none of the prescribed Apple serial numbers on the cable it’s suppose to per Apple. I’d give you the link but Amazon is going to flag it And tell me it’s not allowed – they have in the past. Can’t list any links but Amazon. But if you will type in your browser address bar “Identify Apple counterfeit or uncertified Lightning connector accessories”, this will take you to Apple website, and the Support page, for this item. It looks like it was last updated Aug. 2021. Please get out your magnification device, light and first check the cable. No matter what the packaging etc, the ends, the cable itself should be marked with the serial number you can check with Apple to verify. Counterfeiters try to make the item seem as real as possible; making the packaging look real is easier than the item. If your cable isn’t marked as Apple describes, you know you MAY NOT have a true Apple cable. The article on Apple Support has pictures of the Apple cable and then shows the counterfeit part for the packaging, USB end, Lightening end, and the cable itself. At the beginning it states and shows the pictures “An Apple Lightning to USB cable has "Designed by Apple in California" and either "Assembled in China," "Assembled in Vietnam," or "Indústria Brasileira" on the cable about seven inches from the USB connector. You’ll see a 12-digit serial number at the end of this text.. “
I don’t know what can be done but Amazon has a lot of making up for this — they have lost my trust. It said Sold and Shipped by Amazon. It wasn’t some two bit overnight – they should have known better to check out what they sell. And not to sell counterfeit merchandise. Please go to Apple website and to make it clear – just because there is an Apple store on Amazon, doesn’t mean it is actually run by the Apple corporation. It’s just an store on Amazon that sells Apple products. It’s the same for all these such stores. They most likely have nothing to do with the actual manufacturers. Go to Apple dot com if you want authentic Apple products.
And since they sold and shipped this fraudulent piece of crap, they should make this right by issuing a Notice and replacing all with the correct and true cable and/or an automatic refund. But I won’t buy anymore device accessories from them. Will only buy from Apple.
If you want Apple go to the Apple website to their online store. Only buy in Apple packaging and make sure it’s not counterfeit — ignore these “bought in bulk” this is why it’s not in normal packaging but it’s the real thing type comments. Same thing for batteries — been through this with so called panasonic batteries. If it doesn’t say Panasonic on the battery, or whatever other branded item, I don’t want it.
THESE ARE LOW QUALITY APPLE KNOCK OFF CABLES. THEY WILL CHARGE YOUR ITEMS VEEEERRRRY SLOWLY UNTIL THEY JUST STOP DOING SO AT ALL. WITH REGULAR USE ON THESE, EXPECT TO GOT THROUGH ONE EVERY MONTH OR TWO. GARBAGE
Comes only with this cable, very good cable! If you use it in car, you don’t need a wall charger any more. I would like to recommend a good product working very well together with your phone and this cable: ✅Guanda Bluetooth FM Transmitter for Car Bluetooth Adapter.
It’s definitely an original apple charger
how long is 2m in feet ?
They’re authentic Apple products. They’re exactly what I was expecting.
It claimed to be apple in the listing, but it did NOT come in Apple packaging.
No just the wire part with USB on one side phone plug on other
Hello. This listing is not for 2 cables. This listing is for 1 lightning to usb cable that is 2 meters long. Thank you for your inquiry!
I see another answer that it is not a grnuine cable, BUT the cable i received WAS a genuine Apple cable in the sealed original Apple packaging. Apple model number A1511.
I bought this one to replace a worn out same model cable i bought in an Apple store 4 years ago. Looks exactly the same. This short cable works well… I see another answer that it is not a grnuine cable, BUT the cable i received WAS a genuine Apple cable in the sealed original Apple packaging. Apple model number A1511.
I bought this one to replace a worn out same model cable i bought in an Apple store 4 years ago. Looks exactly the same. This short cable works well in my car without a lot of excess cable to get in the way. It is clearly both a charge and data cable as Apple Car Play works as expected (and no, my VW head unit does not support wireless Car Play – I wish).
Yes I’d like to answer other questions
I would ship it back and complain to the company you got it from.
Yes! Very nice it looks just like the one I bought at apple and it’s packing especially! Very good charger!
The one sold by Extreme Discounts is Original Apple product.,
Info About Apple Lightning to USB Cable (2 m) (Reviews From Amazon)
I’m glad I got it so fast with in a day or two not only that it’s the real deal
Received the 2m Apple Lightening to USB Cable today. It was presented in Apple packaging. The cable is substantial (not light and flimsy like fakes.) Will begin using it to charge my iPad Pro!
It’s the real deal. Authentic Apple product.
I’m done purchasing cheap knock off cables for my phone or ipad. I’d rather pay a little more for the original quality. Works great!
I have an iPhone XR. After the most recent update my phone became very snooty, as iPhones typically become after an update, and stopped working with the charging cables I had.
I bought some new knock off replacements and they worked fine with the older iPhones in the house, but my XR refused to work with them. At first I thought the charging port might be bad, but before bringing it into the store, I wanted to try it with an official iPhone charging cable to make sure they didn’t blame it on the cable.
I was skeptical ordering this one because a lot of the reviews made it out like they might be a knock off. The seller was listed as the Apple Store being shipped by Amazon, so I felt confident in the purchase.
It showed up in an Apple box that looks official. It was even sealed with the little pull strip. It is a box like a normal official Apple cord and even had the warranty booklet inside.
After unboxing I plugged it into a charger and plugged it into the port and Voila it is working.
I will write this off as an Apple update that makes your accessories stop working so you have to buy new ones.
I would recommend this cable with confidence to anyone as long as the seller is listed as the Apple Store and it says in the description it is an Apple branded cable.
After reading several reviews, I was worried that I may receive a non-Apple generic cable.
I was prepared to send it back if it was not genuine.
However, I did receive an Apple product in genuine Apple packaging.
The media could not be loaded. Really good it’s a real apple charger! I was really hopeful that this would not turn out fake! But it’s real and charges really fast! 100% recommended!
*Made For iPhone/iPad/iPod.
Previously, I had bought a 6-foot USB → Lightning cable from Groupon Goods and it was a cheap knock-off. I found myself unplugging and re-plugging the cable because the charge indicator on my phone didn’t light up (product not MFi-rated). Frustrating as hell. Furthermore, the cord itself was mostly rigid though bendable, not as supple and flexible like your standard Apple cable.
But this product is the bee’s knees. To keep it from tangling, I roll the cable about 6 or 7 times and secure it with a twist-tie. When in use I extend the cord and keep it in a spiral for easy gathering. Oh, did I mention it’s cheaper than buying it at an Apple Store?
I don’t even remember what I did with my old cable. Maybe I threw it away. Who cares.
This is an official Apple product, works great. This is not a cheap knock off version. As described does what its supposed to do.
The truth is legitimate Apple lightning cords last far longer and are far more reliable than any other cord I’ve purchased. And I’ve purchased many non-Apple cords by many different (?) manufacturers of all sorts of lengths. While the overpricing by Apple is (very!) frustrating I just can’t dispute the quality and dependability of their products.
