This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in December of 2017. If you're one of the millions of people who choose Apple products when it comes to their phones and tablets, the one Lightning cable that came with your device may not last forever. Even if it does, it's a good idea to have a few backups on hand so you can leave one at the office and one in the car, for example. We've selected durable options in a variety of lengths to suit any need. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.
