    Apple users should feel that the original Apple cable is not too durable, and cracking and bursting of the skin are common. Because of this, after Apple released the new iPhone this year, many brands followed suit to launch their own new braided cords. Recently, the editor got a USB-C to Lightning braided cable. Today we will disassemble it to see how the materials are used inside.
