Get the cord adaptor instead.
I ordered 2 of these adaptors. BIG PROBLEM: they do not connect to your Iphone 5 if you have a case. (I have the speck case). Si I ordered 2 of these adaptors. BIG PROBLEM: they do not connect to your Iphone 5 if you have a case. (I have the speck case). Since EVERYONE has a case, I am confused as to why Apple would make this product, or not even warn you that it does not plug in when a case is on your phone. The cord adaptor is a bit more expensive, but at least you won't ruin your case by having to continually put it on and off to use the adaptor. …

Will not work if your iPhone 5 has any kind of cover
The length of the lightning adapter is too short if you have any kind of cover with your iPhone 5. I have an Apple-like bumper cov The length of the lightning adapter is too short if you have any kind of cover with your iPhone 5. I have an Apple-like bumper cover (similar to iPhone 4/4S) and the metal contact on the adapter is WAY TOO short. I suggest getting the Lighting to 30-pin Adapter Cable instead. The cable has a thin longer Lightning connection that will work with most iPhone 5 covers. …

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...

Flaky and No Other Choices Out There
I recently upgraded to an iPhone6 so I had to use one of these adapters to continue using my phone, maps and music in the car with I recently upgraded to an iPhone6 so I had to use one of these adapters to continue using my phone, maps and music in the car with a Kensington 2 in 1 charger/aux cable (which is a great product by the way). The adapter worked great for two weeks then one day just suddenly wouldn't pass an audio signal. It still charged the phone but when connected, audio would only come out of the iPhone's speaker. I tried the adapter on an older Bose speaker dock and the same thing happened there, so I know it has nothing to do with the car's aux interface or the Kensington cable.
I bought another adapter and it works fine in both, the car and the Bose dock just like the first one did... but I am on pins and needles wondering how long this one will last because the first one just stopped working without any prior sign of malfunction or abuse, and evidently Apple doesn't support using other 3rd party cables as solutions. And in reading other reviews, it seems others have similar experiences without any alternatives either.
Really wish Apple would at least offer free, no questions asked exchanges on proven bad adapters since they changed the 30 pin interface at everyone's expense in the first place and don't support using 3rd party cables. In contrast, the Kensington product is fantastic. Had it for years and it worked with all of my iPhones without a hitch - up until now, where I'm forced to put an adapter in the signal chain. Making quality cables and adapters can be done. And at $30, more than twice the price of what a 3rd party would sell their own for, shouldn't we at least expect a better quality product?? …

A terrible product.
I bought this about a year ago for my new ipod so I could listen to music through my alarm clock/jack. The adaptor stopped working I bought this about a year ago for my new ipod so I could listen to music through my alarm clock/jack. The adaptor stopped working completely three months after I bought it. It did start to work again, but now it works only intermittently, sometimes not even responding. I have to take the ipod on and off to make it work. The employee said it would work well. This product is not worth $30.
Additionally, my ipod does not sit centered on the adaptor, it is only halfway on, due to the location of the adaptor plug. …

I have found that the connection is extremely I bought this adapter to connect my new iPhone 6 to my Bluetooth cables in my car. I have found that the connection is extremely bad as it is constantly coming out causing the phone to disconnect and interrupting music, recharging, etc. There is definitely a design fault here. I went into an Apple store on Friday to exchange the device and checked the new one which was exactly the same. The connection is not tight enough. …
