Recently, my iPhone charging cable was working pretty bad, connecting and disconnecting from time to time. This afternoon, it got worse. Indeed, some smoke litteraly came out of the cable and obviously it won't charge anymore... I have never used it in a bad way and all my previous cables 30-pin are totally fine. Plus, the cable has had a weird shape for a few month now. I went to an Apple Store to get a new one (for free) and the man I talked to said that it was 1 year and  half old so he could not do anything. So, if I have understood correctly, replacing a cable which must cost 1€ is less important for Apple than potentially causing a fire because of this cable? Seriously ?
