Apple controls quality. If you want to guarantee highest quality, then you pay more. Once the bugs with the third-party quality control system were worked out, you could get even higher quality cables for less than those sold by Apple.

If you don’t want to buy Apple products, then you are free to not buy them. There are many much lower quality options. They will cost you more in the long-term though.
