    Nice adapter, but poor decision in the first place.

    • Written by from Caslan

    I dislike apple's switch, primarily because of the purely digital signal coming from their new connector. I really wish they just would have stuck with the 30 pin, although significantly larger.

    But, the adapter. It is sturdy however not too visually appealing. On the device it looks like a growth. However it works and is much needed. As for the expense, considering it sports a Wolfson DAC and solid Apple branded construction, it is not as overpriced as many people claim it is.

    this adapter plays the music from my iPhone 5 on my JBL sound dock. It looks funny, and as the ad says, its analog audio, but it works just fine.

    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.

    I used last night to charge phone and worked ok. I have an otter case and fits just snuggly ( I tried at store before buying). I'll try video and see what happens...

    Works fine with cases

    • Written by from Calgary

    I have an otter box case and this adapter works fine with it, as long as the bottom of your cases is completely open and doesn't have separators for each speaker and the jacks it will work just fine. so far have had no problems connecting it to my I-home dock..... Great adapter to have if you have multiple 30inch pin cords.

    Good for iPad, iPad mini

    • Written by from KAUKAUNA

    We have two iPod touches (5th gen), an iPad (4th gen), an iPod nano (7th gen), and an iPad mini. This works great with the iPad and iPad mini. It is not case friendly with the iPods. If you would like something case friendly, look at the cable version. I use it a lot, seeing as the Lightning connector just came out. My iPad mini is the one I use it with the most. It syncs and charges. I gave it four stars because it is not case friendly with the iPhone 5 and the Lightning iPod lineup. I hope you found this review helpful.

    Good but be careful.

    • Written by from Delevan

    The adapter does not work with a case attached and the weight of the device is an issue. The slanting of the device on a dock can break the adapter. Very compact and is a good flush fit.

    No Video

    • Written by from KOROPI

    I have an iPhone 4 and now an iPad mini, bought this to connect the mini to the Apple Composite Cable that is connected to my home stereo. Disappointed to find out that this connector does not have Video capability meaning I now cannot watch content on my iPad mini to my stereo or TV.

    Come on Apple, it should "just work". I would like to hear the reasoning behind leaving video out from its features...

    Apart from this, all other functions work fine

    Only good for my car

    • Written by from oceanside

    I don't have a case or anything for my ipod nano so the charger fit fine. The adapter hooks up to my car perfectly and syncs and everything. The audio is great. The only thing it didn't work with is my iHome from like 4 years ago. I don't know why it doesn't work but I'm kind of disappointed that it doesn't play music from my iHome alarm clock.

    For all the Case Complainers

    • Written by from Kelowna

    The 30 pin to lightening adaptor did not fit with my case either. So what did I do? I whittled my case with a jackknife and made it fit. It doesn't look the greatest, but its the bottom of the case so who ever sees that anyway? And if you want it to look perfect then go buy a new case that has more space on the bottom.

    It does what it's supposed to do.

    • Written by from Salinas

    What can I say? It's an adapter. It does not fit threw the case of my iPad mini. I'll have to either remove the case or try to modify it to accommodate the adapter. Other than that, the adapter works fine.

    Works as advertised

    • Written by from Roslyn

    I bought this adaptor because I had 4, 30-pin cables already when I got my iPhone 5. This adaptor works exactly as needed. Allows me to sync to my desktop, charge with the wall outlet and control the iPhone via my car steering wheel controls through the USB port. I also have a Griffin black snap case on my phone and it does not block the adaptor. Saved me the trouble of wasting the old wires. Only problem is the price tag, it's about as big as a quarter and cost about $35 after taxes. Other than that it works perfectly.

    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.

    Nice product!

    • Written by from Chula Vista

    I purchased this to mainly intergrate with my car stereo. It does what it's supposed to, and stays firmly in place. Its a high quality product. I have an Otter Box case, and like many the adapter did not fit correctly. It wasn't really a big deal. I used my Dremel and enlarged the opening just a bit. Now the adapter fits perfectly. I would have given it five stars, but I think it's a bit over priced.

    I just upgraded from an iPhone 4 to a 5.
    I own a Bose Sounddock (from 7 years ago)- adapter works on it and can use my 5 to play music on it now.
    I own an Apple iPhone 4 dock- adapter works on it and I can still use it to charge my iPhone 5.
    My case is a SKECH and I do have to remove the bottom part but that is why SKECH cases rock because there is a bottom part to remove easily.
    Adapter work, works just fine, good buy for these type of items.
    But should be 19.99 at most.

    Works as Stated

    • Written by from East Grand Forks

    Overpriced gadget adapter! This adapter works as stated. I wanted it so I could continue to use my iHome Alarm Clock/Radio (love to wake up to a streaming radio station). It works with the audio, charging, and all other commands. It's built really well, just severely over priced. If half the price I would give it 5 stars and buy more!
