Works great however
it's so short and it just seems so over priced for a small thing that doesn't do a complicated job

Lightning to video adapter FAIL
In my car I have an Apple 30pin to RCA cable hooked up to my car entertainment system so that I can play video from my iPhone on t In my car I have an Apple 30pin to RCA cable hooked up to my car entertainment system so that I can play video from my iPhone on the larger screen in the car. After upgrading my iPhone 4 to a 5 the new lightning cable meant I could no longer do this. So after about 2 months of waiting I finally got my hands on the 0.2m lightning to 30pin adapter only to find that it does not support video. Huge fail and a complete waste of money. The only thing it is good for is charging my phone which I can do by using the cable I got with the phone and listening to music which I can do by bluetooth anyway. So even though I am using both an Apple RCA/30pin cable and an Apple Lightning/30pin adapter they are completely incompatible for video. I am very dissapointed. …

Avoid this product as it does not work.
I have an Alesis IO dock for recording music. This unit worked fine with my iPad 3 thanks to the good old 30 pin connector. When I I have an Alesis IO dock for recording music. This unit worked fine with my iPad 3 thanks to the good old 30 pin connector. When I 'upgraded' to the iPad air, I did my homework, making sure I would still be able to use my Alesis dock. I could......if I used an official Apple 30 pin to lightning cable. Not a cheaper 3rd party cable because these don't allow digital audio to pass through. I paid my £35 for the privilege of digital audio pass through and guess what? It does not work! No charging, no sync, and no audio!!!
Just to check, I connected this wonder cable to my DAB alarm clock, attached my iPad air and....intermittent charging and NO audio.
I now have to spend time and money to go back to the Apple store, try and get a refund, and then sell my perfectly good Alesis IO dock to one of those lucky people with an iPad 3 or older. Many thanks Apple. …

5s - iOS7 'device not supported' - farcical does not cover it!
Upgraded from 4s to 5s and needed an adaptor to connect an apple 30 pin apple connector for the car. Opted for this cable but upon Upgraded from 4s to 5s and needed an adaptor to connect an apple 30 pin apple connector for the car. Opted for this cable but upon plugging this into my phone (nothing even connected at 30 pin end) I got a 'device not supported' message. Took cable back and apple guy was baffled as same on his own 5s phone. Tried a few cables and same for each. Seems Apple have outdone themselves and rendered their own adaptor cable as useless. Could really do with this cable but it's not working with iOS7. …

Doesn't fit with a case - doesn't work either
For those of us who think if we buy the 'real thing' that we'll have no problems..THINK AGAIN, and be very cautious before buying For those of us who think if we buy the 'real thing' that we'll have no problems..THINK AGAIN, and be very cautious before buying this.
As you'll already know its ridiculously overpriced and extremely short.
The plug on the lightning end is designed to be just thick enough to cause you trouble when trying to plug it into your iPhone when said iPhone is snugly encased in the official Apple leather case.
If and when you do manage to get it in you're then immediately presented with a message saying it's not supported (this is before you even connect the other end to an accessory). Strangely enough the no cable adaptor works OK and does not display this message (although of course that too is cunningly 'designed in California' to not actually fit if you're using one of Apple's own cases).
Only advice I can give is buy a cheapo generic one - hey that might not work either but at least they only charge you a couple of quid (i.e. what these things are worth)
Apple - you're having a laugh - with the joke being made by your entirely disconnected design 'team' and very firmly at the expense of your customers. Pathetic really. …

Does this lightning to 30 pin have a DAC?
- Asked by Faith D from Wareham
Yes it does. And it is good enough for most all applications. It will be much better than using the Yes it does. And it is good enough for most all applications. It will be much better than using the headphone out in a hifi rig. The one I reccomend is the one with the wire, as many cases will not work with the solid unit. If you don't use a case it won't matter. …
