I was trying to sync/charge my iPhone 5 so the USB end went in my MacBook Pro, and the Lightning end went in the iPhone only to get the error that iTunes couldnt connect to the phone. Then the phone would beep everytime I moved it like the cord was loose or something. I pulled out the lightning plug and looked at it only to find corrosion on the 'gold' connectors.
Does anyone know, does apple actually use gold in these? (gold isnt supposed to corrode, especially after 6 days)
