Stopped working this week around the time i updated my software to the most recent upgrade. Hrmmm

It's like the blowing the original Nintendo NES cartridge story. I wouldn't care.
FYI, there's an impedance measurement that iPhones do (both dock and Lightining) and third party cables likely don't impedance match within Apple's tolerances, but on action, with gunk in there, neither do Apple's own accessories.
