They get worn out after a while and the cable starts to tear open at the base of the connector. The cable might still work (sometimes not), but exposed internal wires are considered a safety hazard, and unless you want to wrap it up with electrical tape, you’ll simply have to throw it out andget a new cable. Nevertheless, there are multiple ways to prevented the cables from breaking.
Use Them in A Proper Way
1. Wrap Them Correctly
Most incidents of iPhone cables breaking are because the user doesn’t properly take care of the cables in the first place, and it usually has to do with how they wraps the cable. More likely than not, you probably wind your cable harshly around your hand and then toss it into your bag. ‘
It turns out that wrapping your iPhone cable around something can cause a lot of kinks in the cable. Ideally, the best way to wrap an iPhone cable for storage is to loop it around several times and have it create a circle when it’s all done, called “coil wrapping”.
1. No Sharp Bends
This sort of goes along with the previous section, but it not only applies when wrapping your iPhone cables, but also when you’re just simply using them.
Don’t make sharp bends in your iPhone cables, because that’s how you can ruin the wires on the inside. Especially don’t create sharp bends near where the connector is. Usually the cable won’t work after that, but even if it did work, it would be a huge safety hazard anyway.
Reinforce Them Yourself
If you are really careless, perhaps you need to reinforce your current cables yourself. There are many DIY tricks you can use in order to reinforce your iPhone cables, and there are different materials you can choose from.
1. Small Springs Protecting
A popular option is using small springs from writing pens and wrapping them onto the ends of your cables. This prevents them from making sharp bends in the first place.
1. Adhesive Tape Protecting
You can also use some adhesive tape materials on the ends as well. However, this way will make your cables ugly. Merely will people choose this kind of material. So think twice before doing it.
