After wasting money on cheap aftermarket cables to use for our iPhones, I finally paid good money to get the actual Apple brand cables. My wife and I use these to listen to music in our vehicles from out phones.
Pros:
It works
Cons:

Not much to say about a cable with connectors. It works and the connectors seem like good quality connectors and the length is good for me.

It works. A bit pricey but like all Apple products it's expected. Tried other third party cables that are not made by Apple and both ended up melting after the third use in my car charger.
Pros:
Apple product
Cons:
$$

Cable

Written By Anonymous, Maine on Thursday, January 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Standard charging cable, genuine Apple product. Disappointed they incorporated a "lightning" name but could not be bothered ton give it a USB 3.0 interface. Works well, seems to charge the phone faster then the older style chargers.
Pros:
Double sided, it goes in either way. Feels fairly sturdy, like the other ones. It is small, so you can fit it into smaller spaces for hiding. I was able to drill a tiny hole in my car to make a mount for my iPhone.
Cons:
Cable length is a little shorted then I had wanted, not a big deal though. Completely different from all my other cables and docks and had to spend a considerable amount of money on more Apple products so they could work-not backwards compatible.
