    Not compatible with ios7

    • Written by from Obetz

    I bought this in 2012 I didn't have any issues until I updated to the new ios7. Since then, I keep getting an error that my adpater is not a licensed device with apple, EVEN though i bought it from the apple store. It doesn't even work with old apple power cords. A complete waste of $30 dollars.

    Apple adapter not compatible with Apple cases!

    • Written by from Oviedo

    Recently bought Apple leather cases for my iPhone 5 and new iPad air. The Apple 30 pin adapter (to connect previously purchased accessories such as the camera kit) DOES NOT WORK with the Apple cases, because the opening in the cases are not large enough to accomodate the base of the connector, and the connector itself is not long enough to connect when the base of the connector is offset by the width of the case.

    Apple is supposed to provide an ecosystem where everything "just works", but they are getting more and more like Microsoft.

    Does Not Work With Apple Case

    • Written by from Saint Louis

    I wish I had read the reviews before ordering. This will not work on my 5s while in the leather case from Apple. Very disappointing as the case is not easy to remove.

    Does Not Work The Way Your Sales Team Said It Would

    • Written by from FRANKLIN

    My original ipod went kaput. We struggled to come up with money to buy a new one and weren't sure we were going to since the new nano has the lightening pin. We feared having to buy all new accessories since my old ipod was set up with a dock at our Mac, another doc at our stereo which also had an aux cable hooked into our stereo and our tv and I had an fm transmitter/charger that allowed me to listen on the car stereo as well. Your sales team assured us that the 30 pin adapter would work with everything so we would not have to spend more than the $30 for the adapter. Guess what? IT DOESN'T WORK WITH ANYTHING. I can no longer listen to my ipod in the car. I can no longer listen to it on the stereo. I can no longer watch tv shows with it on my tv. All it will allow me to do is charge the ipod in the old dock. This was a total waste of money and time. And it just makes me miss my old ipod since this one is only good for listening with earphones. Big whoop.

    No Power Charging

    • Written by from Plano

    Connected iPad mini to Klipsh speakers used with older version IPod touch.

    Sound came through but the device would not charge.

    Work on the connector for a while but could not get it to charge.

    The adapter is allowing me to charge but that is all. I am unable to connect to iTunes or transfer data from my phone to my computer via the cable?! Not worth the price!

    Works with Yamaha YDS-10 dock and iSimple car set up.

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I was very skeptical about upgrading my iphone 4 to 5 because of the compatibility issues, but it turned out to be a non issue for me. Got this adapter mostly for my car and it WORKS. I installed iSimple mod to AUX input so I could listen and charge Iphone at the same time, as a bonus I can skip tracks from the steering wheel. This adapter allows me to use the iPhone 5 just the same. My yamaha piano craft RX-E810 and ipod dock work with this adapter as designed. I can control my iphone through a remote, see my playlists etc right on the display.
    A slim case is a must for this mod to fit.

    Great Adapter! Works with my iSimple in Suburban!

    • Written by from SPRING

    5 stars because this little adapter does exactly what is claims! It works with my iHome alarm clock dock, all my existing cables and Yes! it works with the iSimple cord my husband had installed in my suburban about 3 years ago to play my iPhone/iPod over the car stereo. This adapter still allows the cord to charge my phone and it plays just as before with all previous functions and the sound is still superb. I am very happy!
    My only complaint is that I want a lot more of these adapters and they are expensive! I would love one to leave one on the dock and to leave one in the car and I would love to have one to carry around in my purse for emergency charge needs. My kids all want one for their iPods now as well. $30 here $30 there-Adds up quickly....Oh, those Apple geniuses...;)
    This adapter works fine with my thicker two piece case. I simply cut the thin little rubber pieces of my case off that were located on either side of the speakers and the adapter now fits and goes on and off easily. The cases were made for lightening not 30 pin. Cases and docks/connectors have always had issues. It is not the first time that I have had to modify a case to fit a 30 pin connector nor will it be the last I'm sure.
    I am very satisfied with this adapter. Then again I have yet to be disappointed in anything Apple. ;)

    Rubbish

    • Written by from London

    I bought this so I could still use my 10 year old (but perfectly functioning) Bose sound dock with the Nano I had to buy when my 10 year old classic iPod was stolen from my house as I slept.
    Although it plays the music OK, it no longer charges the iPod while it's on the dock, so that's an end to music at parties after a couple of hours then.
    I don't care what Apple says, they don't have the right to remove functionality in this way.

    Two thumbs WAY DOWN on the stupid lightning connector

    • Written by from Syracuse

    ALL of my apple compatible docking stations and sound systems use the 30 pin connector. I asked for a new iPod for Christmas not knowing that it came with the STUPID lightning connector. I HATE THIS THING on my iPad. My iPod will be getting returned and unless Apple gets their act together I'm DONE with them FOR GOOD. By the way, I would give this connector ZERO stars if the review site would let me.

    Poorly designed

    • Written by from ARLINGTON

    I wish to begin by saying that up until now, all of the Apple products that I have used have been designed beautifully--they look great and they work even better than they look. So, I believe this adapter is an anomaly, but one that needs to be fixed. The adapter works fine from a purely technical perspective. However, it is poorly designed in that you cannot use it with an iPad Air that has an Apple iPad Air Case on it. You have to remove the case or it will not connect properly. I do not expect Apple to design its products to be compatible with 3rd party cases, but I do expect them to design a product that works well with its own cases. They knew enough to make the USB to Lightning cord connecter that comes with the iPad Air to work with the case. You shouldn't have to take the case off to use the adapter.

    Unbelievable. NOT compatible with iPhone 5s!

    • Written by from AROMAS

    I thought I'd put up with almost everything in my decades long relationship with Apple, but this is over the top. I did plenty of research beforehand, and so, got a case with a large open area to allow the adapter to fit. Waste of time: astonishingly, this $30 disaster will not charge the iPhone 5s EVEN WITHOUT A CASE! Unfortunately I missed the review that pointed out that the adapter worked with the iPhone 5, but for some reason, not the 5s. I'm dumbfounded and furious, because the Apple Store web page for the product clearly states that it is "compatible" with the iPhone 5s. Well, yes, it will plug in nicely, but then nothing happens! I'm as loyal to Apple as anyone, but this really stinks. But some comfort for those iPhone 5s owners whose cases blocked the adapter from forming a good connection: it wouldn't have mattered anyway! Unbelievable.

    Problem with adapter to adapter connections.

    I have a 30 pin to HDTV connection I use to display movies on my TV. When I connect the lightning to 30-pin adapter from the iPhone to the 30-pin to hdtv adapter the iPhone says that it is not supported. Not cool.

    Dissapointed

    • Written by from Fort Grant

    It will not play music on any of my IPOD docking devices. Just charges it. I really can't justify buying new alarm clocks and music cubes. Yep really disappointed and hope Apple comes up with a solution.
