    Fix please

    • Written by from Del city

    This does not work when you have a case on the phone. I have a 6 plus with a fairly thin speck case and I have to take it out of the case to use it. Might return because it is not convenient. They should have made the stem of the lightning connector longer or something so you wouldn't have to take your cover off.

    Great service, works with JBL

    • Written by from Enebyberg

    Considering I just bought an iPhone 6 and had a 2012 JBL speakerdock, I needed to get an adapter to be able to continue to use it. I read all the (many) negative reviews on the site and thus was not sure if I should buy one. I went to the Apple store in Stockholm explained the situation. They said I could buy it and if it did not work I could just bring it back. I bought one, put on my JBL speaker dock. Works just fine. Charges and great sound. So if you do want to get stuck with a useless adapter buy it in the Apple store instead of via a big online retailer. That way if it does not work with your speaker dock you can just bring it back.

    Too Short

    • Written by from St. Paul

    I bought this so I can continue to use with my current docking stations. However, if I want to use it I need to take the case off. The stem is too short. The price also to high for not being very functional.

    Won't work with protective cases.

    • Written by from Chester

    The adaptor worked when my iPhone 6 had a cheap, thin, un-protective case. When I purchased a better, more protective case, the adaptor was useless. I don't know if apple makes an adaptor designed to work with Lifeproof/Otterbox cases.

    Useless

    • Written by from Yakima

    Can't connect to existing 30 pin cables (displays incompatibility message on iPad).

    Retail box gives no warning that the adapter is not useful foe anything. Also does NOT come with a booklet or instructions????

    Don't waste your money.

    • Written by from Canyon Country

    I purchased one of these and didn't think about the design until I got it home and put it on the docking station. I tried to plug my Iphone6 in but it wouldn't fit. Yes, I had a case on the phone and the lightning plug is too short. You would think that apple would have tested this but I guess not. Good idea but not functional.

    Using this on a dock. Doesn't work after 5 weeks.

    • Written by from Gig Harbor

    The remote control dock is 30 pin and requires the adapter for my ipod. It was working great for about five weeks. Now the audio will only come out of the ipod and not the dock. I tried a different ipod with the same results. Apple will not take it back. Warrantee must have been for 30 days. :(

    Too bulky

    • Written by from Flushing

    I bought this adaptor because I didn't want to spend a small fortune buying additional accessories for my new iPhone. I'm glad I only bought one, because it does not fit the Otterbox my phone lives in. I can't even properly review it, because I can't use it at all unless I take my phone out of the case, and I'm not doing that.

    The lightning cord is too short to connect if you have a case (any case)

    • Written by from Houston

    Like 250+ people, I have found this to not fit into my phone if it has a case on it. I have an Otterbox, a slim-fit Luvvitt, and a rubber Kate Spade case, the lightning connector will not fit into any of them (the Otterbox and Luvvitt being the worst fit). For the record, though the width of the pin is 1/4", the width of the case is 1", so any case that has an adaptor opening of less than 1" will prevent the lightning pin from securely fitting into your phone.

    If you don't mind taking the cover off your phone every time you need to connect it, then this isn't a big deal - I don't like to do that, so I'm going to return this.

    Questionable Usage

    • Written by from Houston

    What's wrong: If you have a case for your iDevice, it most likely won't fit unless the case is super thin.
    Adapter or lightning cable: The price for the adaptor is $29. The price for a lightning cable (1m) is only $19. But you may also need an extra USB power adapter which costs also $19. So why get this adaptor? It only makes sense if you cannot or do not want to switch cables and access the power adaptor (since it may be hidden behind your desk) all the time. I'd rather suggest to get an extra lightning cable and invest in an additional power adaptor (total $38). It's worth the extra $9. You will be much happier!
    If the lightning bit were sticking out just a little bit more, it would not be a problem with the cases at all. Not really a practical design.

    Does not work with iphone 6

    • Written by from New Westminster

    I just upgraded from an iPhone 4S to an iPhone 6. Both my car (brand new 2014 VW Passat) and my speakers have the 30 pin connector, both of which not only playedmy iPhone 4S but charged it too. I bought the adapter so I could connect my new iPhone 6 into both of these devices. As soon as I plugged it in (once I took my phone out of the case because the lightning end is too short), I got the following error message, "This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this iPhone." No only does it not work unreliably, it doesn't work at all!!!. I spent $35 for each one (bought 2) and the guy at the Apple store obviously didn't know they wouldn't work because I told him exactly why I was purchasing them and he said it was a great idea. I will be taking them back. Come on Apple, don't just upgrade your computers and phones, upgrade the devices you sell to use with them that have your brand name attached to them!!

    Does not work with a case. Taking my phone out of it's case every time i need to use this is time consuming and potentially dangerous.... a $32.00 piece of junk!

    Simple and Easy

    The only reason I bought this product was to connect it to my y cable in my BMW so I can play my music and control the playback through my iDrive. Works for what I needed it for. No problems.

    Works great for me, so bought 4

    • Written by from Fountain Valley

    Works in all contexts I throw at it. Music, charging, etc. I have charging station at home & work, and use it for connecting to my base/holder in my car. Because of this adapter, I didnt have to pull my dash apart and run a new lightening cable. Fantastic. Also stays snug and isn't annoying in any way. I actually like using this versus an OEM lightening cable, because its wider instead of narrow, and much easier to work with quickly. Yes expensive, but worth price of admission for me, it flat-out works. Also using this & keeping the 30-pin on tap at all stations gives the flexibility to charge the pre-lightening interface devices that I own, and if friends come over.

    Does not work with any kind of case

    • Written by from Amherst

    Bought one because it's $10 less than the one with the cord, but now it won't work with my case. So guess I'll be returning this one and paying even more for the one with the cord.

    silly reviews. this works great

    • Written by from Danville

    This adapter does exactly what it needs to. If you're worried about your case breaking by having to pull of the bottom corners to be able to plug in the adapter, you need to get a better case. I keep this adapter in my purse and use it whenever needed, mostly in the car or at work. I have the original charger at home. Buying another one for my fiance to use with his 6

    easily the WORST apple product ive bought

    • Written by from Dakota Dunes

    to begin things off $30 is a little steep for this small adapter, especially when it doesn't even work half of the time. Many people complain about it not fitting while they have a case on their phone. I have the otterbox defender for the 5c and it fits perfectly with the case on. However this accessory STINKS! i can not even plug in my phone to an iphone dock without getting the "accessory not supported" popping up. This is ridiculous if you're going to charge this much at least make a product that works

    iPhone 4-5 adapter

    • Written by from Parma

    I went out today and bought the 30 pin to the lightning adapter. Do not buy if you have a case on your device. It only works if your phone does not have a case.

    My adapter decided to stop playing music on any speaker system, but will still charge my device. Not particularly useful.
