Works Great, Way over priced
I choose this because the 29$ option without a cord I knew would be incompatible with cases and the like so I paid $10 more to get something that would actually work. Considering that they are changing this I would have thought they'd include one with the phone.
Enough griping, this cable works great and has even made it easier for me to talk on the phone while it is plugged into my car. The cable I had was a little too short to not have a constant tugging from the coiled cord. Now with the extra 20cm I can talk comfortably. …

Lets me control my iphone through my car electronics
I bought this to connect my 5 to my car (Benz) electronics so I could control my phone with the car's joystick. Plugged it in and it worked perfectly (to my surprise). My car has a 30 pin cable out and this 30 pin to Lightning fit perfectly and is long enough to the two cables together can connect to the phone while in the cup holder.
My only complaint is the price (thus the 4 star rating). Apple should include one of these with every device as we've all made investments in 30 pin cables over the past 7 years. Starting to lose my patience with Apple over this one. …

If you're like me you have at least 4 30 pin white cables; one at the office, one in each car and at least one at home. You buy t his adapter because it works with your phone case Andy you carry it with you. White lightning connector cables are $19 and you can get white 30 pin cables for just a few bucks. You use this connector to use the 30 pin cables you have now. If you have to buy 4 lightning cables that's $80 and you still can't use the 30 pin docks without the adapter. This adapter while over priced at $39.99 it is still less than buying all new sync cables. This is a 5 star product but I only gave it 4 stars because of the price and Apple finding another way to make my wallet a little lighter. Apple you should have included one with the device, most of us would have bought at least one more. …

Good but expensive
Use this with my Parrot MKi9200 car kit. The parrot has an older 30 pin connector to use with the older iPhones, this seems to wor k fine connected to the 30 pin parrot iPhone connector, having a short lead between the lightning end and the 30 pin end makes sense, especially if you have a decent cover on your iPhone 5, mine has the lifeproof case and works fine. Maybe a better item if the lead was longer than 0.2 m and was more like AUD$20. …

Frustrating in the extreme
Dear Apple - PLEASE I beg you - SORT OUT THE WIRING ON CHARGERS AND HEADPHONES.
I understand that generic products may not always work but the Apple ones should! My iPhone 5 charger wire stopped working a few days ago. Yesterday I was walking the dog and the Apple (came in the box) headphones were crackling and very intermittent with my new iPhone 5. In the evening I put my iPhone on charge using my very new iPad Mini charger only to see that the charge wasn't taking.
PLEASE do something about it. All I am planning to do now is buy generic cheap ones from Amazon by the bucket load and throw them out once they stop working. …

Not good at all.
You're gonna be able to attach to old accessories for your iPhone 4S, I didn't have any problem with the sound, what I couldn't un derstand is Why Apple design this cable with an thick plug!!.
If you want to use it with a case or even a bumper, you better have an case with a big hole to connect it, or have your iPhone naked, otherwise forget about it!!! …

Yes it will, as long as you are using the MDI cable with the 30 pin connector (and the Apple 30 pin to Lightning adaptor). The MDI with USB will not work. …
