Not in my experience.
Eh well, we have different experiences.
My Apple cables - the ones the come with the devices and some I bought later on, ended up with the rubber peeling at the connector edge within about 6 moths. The copy ones last about as much - usually they stop working rather than peeling, but because then ones I get tend not to have rubber but textile. Which is why now I buy only copies. I go thru about 4 cables a year.
Admittedly having several children in the house swapping cables all the time may have something to do with that.
I wouldn't dream of buy anything
counterfeit (dont see the point) which is why I misread you.
