Useful but expensive
It seems to be a useful adapter to have, but for it to cost £25.00? Seems a bit of a rip off to me...

design not thought about
Unusual for Apple the design of the adapter has not taken into account that most people put a protection case around there iPhone. Unusual for Apple the design of the adapter has not taken into account that most people put a protection case around there iPhone.All it needed was a step on the iPhone end to allow for the outer case thickness. To use the adapter the outer case has to be removed which is not only inconvenient but defeats the point of an outer case . …

Don't waste your money
I bought the camera and HDMI adapters just before Apple announced they were changing the charging ports. I have only just changed I bought the camera and HDMI adapters just before Apple announced they were changing the charging ports. I have only just changed my devices from 30pin to lighting because I had these and a radio that again was bought three months before the change was announced so held onto the 30pin devices as long as possible before they (inevitably) failed and were changed.
The generic adapter doesn't work with either of these two 30pin adapters with my iPhone 5s or my iPad mini (where applicable). The whole point of this is that you shouldn't find yourself with items that are now useless, but I guess Apple aren't concerned with making products that actually do what they say they will. …

Works with iPhone 5s to Arcam rCube, rWand and VW Media-in connection
Just upgraded iPhone from 4s to 5s as don't like size/weight of 6. Hope I don't regret that too soon! Anyway this connector works Just upgraded iPhone from 4s to 5s as don't like size/weight of 6. Hope I don't regret that too soon! Anyway this connector works fine with direct connection to the (now deleted) Arcam rCube and the phone is supported well enough unless you are going to throw your shoes at it! I can confirm it also works using the Arcam rWand over it's Klear streamed connection. I have just tried it with the 30-pin VW media-in cable in my 2011 VW Golf Estate and it works as well as the original connection ever did ( ie not perfectly but well enough). So I hope this helps all you rCube lovers as I could find nothing on this before now and I know this contradicts other reports about the VW Media-in connection. The Lightning plug is reversible in use, but remember the 30 pin end is not!
Loss of one star as the price could have been sold at a loss by Apple even though I think it contains a DAC - for goodwill reasons; and I wonder if they considered a more stubby, strong adapter without a DAC but including a jack connection to the jack socket triggered to produce a line out analog signal through a 30 pin socket. …

Great Design ... but
As usual, a very soldly-engineered product from Apple.
Does exactly what it says on the tin - but ...
1) VERY, VERY EXPENSIV As usual, a very soldly-engineered product from Apple.
Does exactly what it says on the tin - but ...
1) VERY, VERY EXPENSIVE for what it is. £10.00 would be reasonable but £25?!?
2) As others have mentioned, the adapter takes NO account that you may have a protective case on your iPhone/iPad. When trying to charge my new iPhone on my 30-pin Pure Clock Radio, the adapter fitted fine, and so did the iPhone on the adapter but the fact that I had a protective case on the iPhone meant that the connections on the adapter didn't make contact with the contacts in the phone. I had to take the phone out of the case in order to use the adapter to charge the phone.
So, lose 2 stars for horrendous expense and a further star for the lack of thought regarding the use of the adapter with an iPhone/iPad which has a case fitted. result - 2 stars.
SHAME APPLE! …

No it is not - I have the same issue as you and asked Pure support about it. They confirmed it is no No it is not - I have the same issue as you and asked Pure support about it. They confirmed it is not compatible, and said that Apple had changed something, which I find hard to believe.
