    I was excited to get this and then was sadly disappointed that it did not work. I have been an avid Iphone owner since 2006 and love my iphone, but this saddened me. It did not mirror anything at all, just a black screen. When I purchased this item I thought I would need an HDMI cable, but the specifications did not say so. I spent the 40.00 for the adapter and an additional 30 on an HDMI cable all for it not to work:(

    30 pin digital AV adapter = disappointed

    • Written by from omaha

    How do you own such a lucrative, reputable company and put your brand name on a product that doesn't work universally with all your products that fit the generalized criteria. I purchased this adapter over the rocket fish brand at best buy to figure out after this adapter only works with few and far between randomized iPod/ iPads. The Best Buy sales clerk was certain that this would work with my IPad, but no dice. iPad 4 was left out for whatever reason. Yes, I finally read the scattered applicable devices on the side panel, but everyone knows Apple users have been taught not to read terms and conditions when buying seemingly obvious purchases.

    Works Great

    • Written by from Orland Park

    Don't know what all the complaints are about. I purchased this connector and it worked great on both my 3rd generation iPad and my 4S iPhone. I have OS6 loaded on both devices. Images and mirroring is terrific. Slideshows work great as well as itunes music etc.

    "mirror whatever" is false, "mirror some" is correct

    • Written by from Raleigh

    It does not "mirror whatever is in your iPad". I tried to mirror some downloaded pictures from an iPad3 and it did not work. It made me look very bad cause I (plus a crowd) was truly depending on the "mirror" advertising.. It only works on videos. So if you are depending on it to "mirror", TEST IT FIRST or you will be in for a not very pleasant surprise.
    As far as I'm concerned It's false advertising.

    Hdmi output sound no video

    • Written by from Media

    Sound but no video is a communication issue between tv and your device's app. As in. A new tv(last 2 years tops) should work perfectly for any app. I had this problem. 3 yr old LCD. 1 app WATCH ESPN is flawless. Safari partially worked. Other apps had sound and no picture. Even home videos. A 1 yr old QUATTRON tv mirrors every app EXCEPT nfl network which states it will not allow hdmi out. All this said IOs 6 UPDATE DOES NOT WORK AT ALL WITH HDMI OUT.. OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!! Fix it now.....oh. please

    Apple Digital AV Adapter

    • Written by from Oakdale

    I have had this adapter for about 6 months and I think it works very well with my iPhone 4 and iPad 2. It does mirroring on iPad 2&3 and plays movies, music, and slideshows on an HDTV via an HDMI cable. It also has an integrated 30 pin slot on the bottom so you can charge your iPad or iPhone while using it. Overall, I think that this is a great product for the money and is very useful!

    Excellent but a little over priced

    • Written by from Easton

    This is a very good adapter for students that have a flat screen tv in their room. At first it didn't work but after a little tweaking it worked perfectly. The downside of this adapter is that you not only do you have to spend $40 for the adapter but also another $20 for the HDMI cable. This is still very good for turning a 10 inch iPad screen into a 26 inch viewing area, but it will still be very great for larger tvs too. Hopefully in the future apple will have price cuts on this item.

    Great Quality product

    • Written by from Toronto

    I have to agree even though Apple products are expensive, they make durable and quality products. The video quality which I am getting to my TV with this adapter is stunning.

    Serious Design Flaw

    • Written by from San Francisco

    THIS ADAPTOR IS ALMOST UNUSABLE. The dock connection does not have locking clips to secure the adaptor to the iPad or iPhone. The slightest tug on the HDMI cable or slightest movement of the iPad causes this adaptor to partly disconnect from the dock on the device. I know Apple can make a dock connection that locks; they used to ship a USB cable with older iPods that would lock into the dock connector and wouldn't disconnect unless one pressed both side buttons and then pulled the connector out.

    Look up, "Joe Sabia: The technology of storytelling" on TED to see a nice example of someone having to heavily tape an adaptor to an iPad to make it usable!

    Needs improvement for portability

    • Written by from Downingtown

    I have found that these adapters work just fine if being used in a stationary setting. However, if this device is used in a setting where it might need to be flexed or twisted (ie. Classroom or Business setting), these adapters don't hold up well. The connection between the iPad and the HDMI display becomes unreliable and begins to cut in and out.

    I have been useing the New Version Apple Digital AV Adapter ( A1422 ) sence it was first made available. Started using it with my iPad 2nd gen., only about a month old and at first it did not work at all with genaric HDMI cable I had so I went and spent $46 on a nice black and blue Nylon woven sleaving around the actual cable with the Gold plated connection ends and it worked great. I then bought the iPad 3rd gen. ( The New iPad ) and started using the Adapter with it and this time flawless, no issue at all. This adapter is working great with the iPad 2nd with the newest update 7.1 to kick, how, I Don't know why and don't care, it works great, if it isn't broke don't fix it right. And still working great with the iPad 3rd with 7.1.... So I have no complaint with it, on working with the iPads.

    My problem is when I hook up the HDMI with my iPod Touch 4th gen. to my HDTV and tried all three ports, all I get is very great sound and no picture. Tried all there ports shutting everything off and restarting the HDTV and iPod Touch 4th gen. And still the same thing great sound and no picture, I mean really. I just want to use for RedBox Instant app. Yes it works with it on both iPads but not the iPod. Why not just use the iPad sense it works with it you, well I will tell ya, lol, I wont to be able to use my iPad while in and out of the movie. But check this out the TV I am trying it on is a off brand that works really well called a Sceptre HDTV , well thats what the makers say anyway, in my opinion it's not a true HDTV because we get the HD services and lol it still don't look like our LG Smart HDTV that I have not tried the iPod Touch 4th on yet. And I will later and give the update. Thank you for reading, have a great one.

    Great for watching movies

    • Written by from Britton

    Just purchased this item 2 weeks ago. Was very hesitant about buying this after reading reviews. Glad I checked it out for myself. Is great for watching movies that I have purchased or rented and downloaded on my iPad 2 from iTunes. I have updated my iPad 2 with latest iOS 7.0.3 software and it works fine. Movies loaded before update and after all work fine. Have used it on multiple TV brands such as Sony, Vizio, and Toshiba without any problems. Great product to use when there is no wifi available for my Apple TV.

    Absolutely Perfect on the iPad 3rd Generation

    • Written by from AURORA

    I purchased the cable and it works absolutely perfect especially on the movie that I purchased on Itunes Store. I can't believe that even the sound is great. It's very easy to use and I think I would recommend this product to my friends.

    works great!

    • Written by from Calgary

    I have the first Ipad and when I first connected it to my TV the screen it was blank and I was really angry. It worked once I opened up Netflix though so I guess it just doesn't work until your movie is playing.

    Great idea but

    • Written by from Northglenn

    Plugged Ito my ipad and it worked great but removal was scary.
    The adapter fits into the ipad 30'pin port so tight, it was very, very difficult to remove. So proceeded to install in my iPhone. Bad luck, it didn't work at all. Again very difficult to remove.

    I would have kept it but the snug fit makes me think that pins could become damaged.

    Didnt work for my Ipad or Iphone

    • Written by from Rio vista

    I had a different brand adapter which worked well. It was from Iphone and Ipad to Component. When we upgraded to ios6 then the adapter no longer worked. I bought this one and it does not work on any of out iphones or ipad2's. I restarted devices while this was plugged in, as suggested by some reviewers but to no avail. It is strange to me how this will work for some and not other people. I seen it suggested that maybe my TV isnt new enough. Its about 3 years old max. Anyway, I also checked for newest ios update and we are up to date so again strange.
