    Don't know how you do it. My Apple cables always fray and tear up in a short time. The Anker Powerline + ll are holding up much better.
    Had my original charging lightning cable over 4 years

    I’m not sure what people do to their cables but I’m still using cables from my iPad mini 2, iPhone 6 & 6 Plus. All the new ones that I’ve gotten with upgrades are still in the boxes. I’ve never had an issue with them not working or fraying.

    The ones we use in our car seem to wear and fray much faster than the ones we use at home or offices. Perhaps that has something to do with dramatic temperatures (sub zero during the winter, mid 90’s during summer months).

    I don't do anything to mine, other than charging my phone while using it. A lot. They simply wear out where they plug in. They fray and short out where a wire breaks. They'd last a lot longer if I just plug in and set it down to charge. The Anker Powerline+ ll is holding up much better than the Apple cables.

    I’ve still never had an Apple cable fail on me. It took me 4 years before one finally started getting a tear in the rubber jacket. But other than that, the cable itself was still good. I have a number of Apple cables still in boxes because I don’t need them.

    Honestly I have zero problems with my Apple cables. The ones on my nightstand have been there for years, but I have had to change the block on my iPhone charger. On my Apple Watch and AirPods docks, I'm still using original cables and blocks. My car Apple cable has been plugged in since I purchased my car with no problems. Not sure what you guys are doing, but I don't use my devices while charging. It's not that serious ...LOL. I have Apple boxes that still have the cables and blocks in their plastic packaging.

    I use my phone while charging a lot. That's what causes them to wear out.
