    Worked fine

    • Written by from Moline

    I have the new iPad and worked just fine. Just a pain because apples USB charging cable is so short. Why apple? We like cords to be at least 6ft!

    DOES NOT WORK WITH IPAD 2 AND IOS 6.1.3 DO NOT BUY

    • Written by from Dallas

    I bought this adapter, in person, at the Apple store in Dallas about a month ago, after discussing my equipment and my intended use. I have an iPad 2. The adapter worked flawlessly on what was my test run for switching all media rom cable to Apple TV. I could not realistically do that and handle all the media with my 2007-ish MacBook Pro (didn't support sound through HDMI, if nothing else) but that was okay because I intended to upgrade. So as step 2, I bought the MacBook Air last weekend and the thurdebolt AV adapter (which works poorly, at best), but still used my iPad running iOS 5 and its adapter without issue. Friday I upgraded to iOS 6 (6.1.3, to be exact) which rendered the thing completely useless. The TV and the iPad are connected, and they both reflect that, but no signal or sound. Why?! I can't downgrade back to iOS5 now, and since the upgrade in addition to the issues with the adapter, my painstakingly difficult process of converting over just my iTunes library to the Air (which, come on Apple, that's a basic, basic need for upgrades) was totally wrecked when I tried to sync the upgraded iPad to the library. Lost hundreds of songs, and ultimately had to wipe the iPad altogether and start again. Now I can't watch video at all through the iPad and the thuderbolt is sketchy, at best, and only really works when you physically hold the adapter into the thuderbolt post. How is this making things that "Just Work"?!

    AV or VGA

    • Written by from Moses Lake

    Everybody saying this doesn't work with iPhone 4 or iPad 2 or whatever, know that this is an AV adapter and you might need an VGA adapter instead, also the VGA adapter costs less than this one although it doesn't support charging. Bottom line is if this one doesn't work, then maybe you need the other one.

    One more thing, if your movies from iTunes don't play on your projector or TV screen, it's not due to the adapter, it's due to the fact that your projector doesn't allow HD movies to play. Newer projectors allow HD movies to play, I forgot the name of the thing that doesn't allow
    HD movies but its found in older projectors and TV's.

    DOES NOT WORK

    • Written by from MIDLOTHIAN

    If I could, I would give it 0 stars. To put it simply, this product does NOT mirror the iPhone 4 via HDMI to TV. The only thing that comes through is audio. NO VIDEO. With iOS 6, there is no longer an option for TV settings. Nice try, but don't waste your time or money.

    Really???? c'mon apple; you can do better than this.

    Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter No Longer Works With Latest Software (iOS8)

    • Written by from Toronto

    I originally purchased my Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter to mirror whatever’s on my iPad 2 or iPhone 4S screen to my TV screen and for a year or two , it worked well! So I would have originally rated this product as a 4 out of 5 stars. But since I updated my operating system to iOS8 (on both my iPad and iPhone), my adapter no longer works properly.

    Currently, for a split second after connection, my iPad will mirror the image on its screen to the television but then quickly cut the image to display the following message: "This accessory is not supported by this iPad." This unfortunately was never the case before upgrading the operating system.

    On my iPhone (iOS Version 8.1.2), it too will mirror the image on its screen to the television temporarily but then cut the image to display the following message: "This accessory is not supported by this iPhone."

    Why I know that this is an issue with the latest software is because when I use my wife's iPhone 4S, a phone in which we have NOT updated the operating system (it is still running iOS 7 (7.0.4), it continues to work perfectly with the digital AV Adapter. Thus, the adapter is not faulty.

    So I'm hoping that this post informs others and tells the Apple engineers the information they need to fix this issue as it seems the new operating system software no longer has compatibility with this Apple adapter.

    Apple, from the other posts, it seems like this is a fairly common issue as others have mentioned the same thing so please fix this issue promptly since I not only use this technology for my personal use but also my teaching practice.

    In closing, after looking at the Apple Store - Shop Accessories - Compatibility. Your Apple website still proclaims that the aforementioned Apple Digital AV Adapter connects "to your iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, ... via the 30-pin dock connector." This is inaccurate information! As you look further in the Ratings and Reviews section for this same product, many Apple users seem to be encountering similar difficulties with their adapters. Apple, you need to continue to support your products or fear a lack of customer loyalty in the future.

    Ok, might fixed alot of peoples problems

    • Written by from FORT WALTON BEACH

    Like 70% of you this item didnt work, AT ALL. after a few basic computer troubleshooting, i have come across a potential fix. Turn your iPad off > plug in Adapter > turn on. While on the iPad it will transfer and mimic the screen. Once in a movie or show itll take up full screen. SO far i dont have any complaints other than maybe apple should have found some way to remove this bug after a year of people complaining

    For those who are trying to use this with the lightning to dock adapter, read the description for the lightning adapter before you buy. It clearly says that it is not compatible.

    Poor image quality

    • Written by from Madison

    Image quality is washed out compared to same videos sent to same TV via AirPlay and Apple TV box.

    This will work OK for my intended purpose - connecting to TVs while traveling - but spend $60 more for Apple TV at home/office.

    Worked with iPads 2 and 3. Did not work with iPhone 5 via Apple adapter, even though Apple Store employee said it would.

    Do not buy until fixed

    • Written by from Farmington

    I bought Apple products because I want things to work out of the box. I bought the Digital AV Adapter and tried it with iphone 4s and IOS 6.0.1. Doesn't work. Tried all the internet fixes, powering up while plugged etc. No video, very frustrating when you expect Apple products to work with Apple products.
