Short note- my iPhone 4S,6,7 all had apple cables. They lasted 3 months, 6 months and 5 months respectively. My 7 cable was replaced 3 times so far, and I’ve stuck to apple the first 2 times. Third time I went for Anker (with an AmazonBasics cable as backup) and both work till this date. That’s like…1 year or so?
