    Works for me

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Just purchased the connector. Fits with my covering & works with every other ipod adaptor I've acquired over the years. $30 bucks is a drop in the bucket compared to what was already spent on the ipod. Apple should just give us a heads up that the connector is different.

    Agree with the others

    If you have a case don't waste your money. I am not happy at all with this purchase it was a complete waste of money if you have a protective case on your phone.

    Rubbish

    • Written by from London

    I bought this so I could still use my 10 year old (but perfectly functioning) Bose sound dock with the Nano I had to buy when my 10 year old classic iPod was stolen from my house as I slept.
    Although it plays the music OK, it no longer charges the iPod while it's on the dock, so that's an end to music at parties after a couple of hours then.
    I don't care what Apple says, they don't have the right to remove functionality in this way.

    No audio for the 7th Gen iPod! Buyer Beware!

    • Written by from APO

    Since the update to the iOS, this pin and the cord/extender no longer work. It will charge my iPod, but no audio. I get the 'unsupported device' error message most of the time, but even when I don't, I still have no audio.
    I have many 30-pin USB cords and my portable speakers are 30-pin. I needed an adapter so I could continue to use what I already possessed, so I purchased 2 adapters and a dock extender. ALL of them stopped working! This is not a coincidence. And like other reviews, the placement of the pin makes the iPod stick out to the side (offset/off-center) which means it won't fit in many docks, which was why I purchased the extender cord. Now nothing works! As much money as these things cost, they should work!!! I'm really ticked off because of this. I can only use that iPod in my car now using the audio jack. Thanks for nothing Apple!

    Does not fit in iPhone 5s with case on

    • Written by from Ystrad Mynach

    Awful design, apple. What were you thinking? Who uses their phone without a case? I know extending the length of the socket would make it insecure and liable to snap, so howabout a breakout cable on the next version?

    No good with case

    • Written by from Rugby

    Great if you don't use a case but even with a genuine Apple case, it doesn't fit. Real shame but not fit for function.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Moosomin

    I have had this product for 3 months now and I love it. I didn't have to buy a new docking station for my iPod ^_^ saved me some money buying this instead. plus when i want to get a new charger i don't have to pick and choose, I can get the one I like. It works just like it should. My charger works better with the adaptor than it did with out it. And it not fitting with a case that is normal with any charger or adaptor.

    Fits perfect with Otterbox defender series

    • Written by from Redding

    It seems like it was made for this case. I appreciated the positive reviews saying it fit because I was almost afraid to try it. It snaps in. I like the secure fit, but not so tight that it scrapes. I gave it 4 stars because I think it should work with video. It is a keeper for me. One of the things I dislike about these kind of adapters is that they aren't really secure. When it is on, it feels like it is part of the case phone set up. It also comes out easily.

    Works better then 30 Pin for me.

    • Written by from Leamington Spa

    I am using it in my 2006 BMW with an OEM ipod adapter, not only it work fine, but it seems to work better than a using the 30-pin connector on previous iPhone.

    I have noticed that this device has some sort of memory build in to it, when I disconnect the IPhone when I leave my car and come back to it later the last played track continues playing that track rather than starting from the first song on the device.

    Also when the IPhone is connected it start playing straight away, it doesn't go through the initialisation process which it used to do (about 30s to a minute depending on the number of songs) which was the case when I was using a 30 pin device.

    Couldn't be more happy with it as it fixed the flaws I had been dealing with in previous devices.

    Be Careful if buying to use with a dock and/ or case

    • Written by from Belmont

    Nice and compact and works as an adaptor. However, it is not compatible with many of the major brand iPhone 5 cases. The base is too wide and does not allow the connector to connect to the phone. Try before you buy and consider the connector with the cable instead.

    Returning! Waste of Money!

    • Written by from Omaha

    As the title suggests, I am returning this product. I have a slim fit Speck case, and it doesn't work at all with it on it. I'm incredibly disappointed as it would have been nice to be able to use the speaker dock gift my brother got me for the holiday with my phone. Had I realized that I would have so much trouble with finding adaptable products for the new iPhone, I would have gotten the older version. I am floored that Apple would create a new product with such a poorly designed adapter. What a disappointment.

    Works as expected!

    • Written by from Miami

    Pros: Charges very quickly. I like that the plug is smaller. I always felt the other one was too big even from the first time I purchased an iphone in 2009.

    Cons: Length of cable. I always thought they were too short anyway. Price: It's an apple product... they're overpriced in EVERYTHING.

    Comment: To those who blame the cable for not fitting with a phone-case.. How about blaming the case instead? The adapter is about as thin as it needs to be. It's the case-manufacturer who needs to work around the cable, not the other way around.

    Pricey, but it works!

    • Written by from Shelby Township

    Previously attempted to purchase an aftermarket substitute for the lightning adapter for the 30-pin plug for my trucks radio. Those products weren't recognized by the radio or my iPhone 5, but did provide charging and data transfer into a computer.

    After being unsuccessful with the cheaper option I decided to try the Apple branded lightning to 30-pin adapter. Without much expectation, it worked well beyond my expectation! The radio and iPhone instantly recognized the device providing a charge to my iPhone. An audio signal was provided from my iPhone to the radio and the radio controls worked for pausing songs, changing tracks, as well as rewinding and fast-forwarding (just like before the adapter using my previous iPhone 3G and 4.

    The adapter itself seems expensive, but it WORKS! I do not rest my iPhone right side up resting on the adapter for fear of the adapter breaking in the lightning port.

    Is a fine, precision made adapter that fits and works very well. Its has a very snug fit and will hold my iPhone perfectly in every station or dock I have without issue. Works in my car without having to buy additional cords.

    Works as advertised

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Small and compact enough to stick in your wallet. The width of your 30-pin to USB cable. Easy to lose. Over-priced. Necessary if you have the iPhone 5 and need to connect to devices like docks and such. Did I mention over-priced?
