Q: I’m sick and tired of my charging cables fraying at the ends. Is there a way to save them and prevent this?
A: I have some news that might cheer you up. Apple recently announced that its new iPhones will all come with braided charging cables. Instead of housing their internal wires within a continuous plastic tube that is prone to ripping at both ends, braided cables wrap these guts in a few woven strands of plastic, nylon or steel. Of course, those phones now have a USB-C port instead of a Lightning one, rendering all your existing charging cables even more useless if you upgrade. Whatever, it is a step in the right direction!
