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 . …

Functional charge adaptor, no audio for docks
I have a couple of docks (both Sony) based on the 30 pin design, and I sure thought carefully beforehand. After all, Apple were pr I have a couple of docks (both Sony) based on the 30 pin design, and I sure thought carefully beforehand. After all, Apple were promising this was not just 100% compatible but also fully digital.
Fact is, NEITHER of my Sony docks accept audio OR controls from these adaptors.
I don't mind changing minor tech for necessary upgrades, but at £30 this is a terrible adaptor. You're better off chancing one of the 3rd party options to at least get sound.
However now I have to find tasty new docks!
Conclusion: don't buy unless desperate. …

Incompatible or plain broke
It would be nice if Apple published a compatibility chart, most manufacturers of most accessories do so, as we all know Apple does It would be nice if Apple published a compatibility chart, most manufacturers of most accessories do so, as we all know Apple does do things its own way. Not always the best way.
Did not work with my Samsung audio dock. No charge going through the adapter, let alone audio. Unfortunately it's going back in to its box back to Apple.
Mostly a waste of time. …

Do not purchase
Brought this adapter to continue to use my docking station to listen to music from my 5s. The adapter worked for less than a month Brought this adapter to continue to use my docking station to listen to music from my 5s. The adapter worked for less than a month now only charges from the docking station and doesn't play music.
Very frustrating. I assumed because I was paying £25.00 for a simple piece of equipment it would work, having previously brought a cheaper verion from Amazon that doesn't work either.
So disappointed. …
