    Terrible Sound reproduction

    • Written by from Dover

    I'm not sure if I got a lemon, but when I used this cord to dock my iphone 5 into a sound system, the results were atrocious. At first I thought my speakers were broken, but they work fine when anything is attached without the lightning-30 pin cord. I bought this 5 days ago, and I am going back to demand a refund or at least a replacement because the sound quality is so bad that it is not worth listening to.

    Video and audio output do not work like iPod Classic

    • Written by from Honolulu

    WHY??? would the audio and video out functions of the iPod touch gen 5 be different than the iPod Classic? If they were...and they are...why wouldn't Apple be professional enough to tell the buyer what the new setup is?????????????
    Very, very frustrating.....

    Doesn't Work - Over Priced

    • Written by from Santa Rosa

    I bought this to connect my new iPhone 5, when I traded up from an iPhone 3, to my exisiting docking stations. I've tried this on two docking statings so far and the iPhone 5 with this cable hasn't worked on either station. I tried this on a Bose docking station (included with a Lifestyle system) and with an iHome clock/radio.

    Apple should include one of these with every device as we've all made investments in 30 pin cables over the years and they should maintain compability with previous versions so we don't have to go out and buy new docking stations just because Apple has a new interface.I'm losing my patience with Apple over this one. Just any way to get more money out of the consumer with no added benefit, except to Apple. The only good thing I ‘m still within the 15 day period and I can return this expensive and useless cable.

    DISAPPOINTED!!!

    • Written by from CHATSWORTH

    I bought this so I could play music in my car using my iPhone 5 BUT it ONLY works for the sound. It DOESN'T show the music info or allow me to change the song like my iPhone 4s. Now I have to look at my phone to change the song instead of my stereo and last time I checked it's a hefty fine to get a ticket for being on your phone.

    The REAL reason I am giving it 1 star is because after a 3 months it already disconnects and connects simply by touching the chord. I keep it in my car for the most part so it's not like I'm carry it around where it could be damaged. I would expect it to at least last as long as some of my iPhone chargers I have had for YEARS!

    Horrible

    • Written by from Tipp City

    Had the charger for barely a month and it quit working. so frustrating to spend so much money only for it to quit working so soon. I feel like $40 for a replacement is absolutely ridiculous but since the 5th generation is different than all of our other itouches, i'm forced to buy a new one :(

    DON'T CARE FOR IT AND DON'T UNDERSTAND

    • Written by from Jeffersonville

    Either make a lightning cord that has a s-video and audio cords or make an adapter that supports the one we've already paid $50 for to be so smart you all make some real ignorant moves... You change the connection but then don't give us an alternative for the cable that we have already purchased this is just STUPID!!!!!! I have to put 1 star but really zero stars for this adapter for it is a useless piece of equipment if this wasn't a review I'd be using a few other choice words.... I have a Macbook Pro, iPad mini, and an iPhone 5 I have an older tv hanging in my kitchen that I used to hook my iPhone 4s up to I shouldn't have to buy another tv because you brainiacs didn't make a compatible adapter.

    Waste of money. Overpriced yet underdelivers.

    • Written by from Walden

    This device is GREAT if you don't mind paying $40 for something that allows your device to function with limitations. No video support. Audio support is limited depending on the accessory you're using it with. But its GREAT for syncing and charging. That said, so was the lightning cable that came with the phone. This is a $40 waste of money and poor decision on Apple's part to switch from 30 pin to lightning.

    Apple disappoints (again)

    • Written by from PALMER

    I would like to video out using my older AV composite cable (not cheap). This stupid adapter will not work for video out. So after upgrading to an iPhone 5 I am worse off than the 4s. JUNK JUNK JUNK. Don't expect video out with your old hardware accessories. Instead of just a phone upgrade plan on upgrading everything.

    Useless except for charging

    • Written by from Boucherville

    It bought this for my iPad mini but returned it because it does NOT work with the following adapters:
    - 30pins to camera SD card adapter
    - 30pins to VGA adapter
    - 30pins to composite video and RCA audio adapter
    The only thing that worked for me is charging.
    They should at least say which of Apple adapters ARE supported on their website!

    Worthless

    • Written by from Conroe

    The length of this adapter cable makes it completely worthless. I cannot imagine an application where this length of cable would help anyone. Couple that with the fact that no one appears to make a lightning extension cable and I have NO solution to connect my new phone to my old docking stations.
    Apple - Seriously, think about this for a minute and fix it. I need a 3 foot (1 m) cable. for the price you're charging for this cable, an extra 2.4 feet of cable isn't going to make any real difference in base cost and you might actually sell some of them.

    Apple FAIL

    • Written by from Chantilly

    I bought this because I got the ipod 5th gen for christmas but I have an expensive and high quality clock radio that I love and still want to use from LAST christmas.

    This cord works for charging when plugged into the old 30pin-to-USB cord and to my computer.

    This cord DOES NOT work for much else, especially not my clock radio. It doesn't even acknowledge that it's plugged in!!

    I wish I could take the whole ipod back I am so angry. I will at least take the cord to the store and DEMAND my $40 back. NO WAY, Apple. Absolutely no way.

    You morons changed the plug so you morons need to create an adapter that works.

    I like apple products but this is an insult.

    Disappointment

    • Written by from Birmingham

    The length of cable is too short; it needs to be at least 12 inches. I have a small clock radio designed for the 30-pin connector; though it is low, the iPhone 5 will not lie on surface without tension on cord.

    The Lightning connector itself is too fragile to support upright mobile devices without breaking easily. Apple should have thought this change through more thoroughly.

    It's too expensive for what you get. I could get a new clock radio designed for iPhone 5 for about what I paid for this cable.

    DOES NOT WORK in my 2013 BENTLEY

    • Written by from Palatine

    The lightning to 30-pin adapter with the cord does NOT work in my 2013 Bentley Continental GT. Sound is very Very BAD and distorted.
    I'm going to try an adapter only. I think because of thisextendedd cable this is happening.
    Someone posted a review on the adapter site that it works great but it did not with the cord adapter.

    Doesn't work with most devices

    • Written by from New York

    The description is correct in that you can plug in 30 pin cables to lighting. If you want the device supported, that's another story. The most obvious need, VGA out, is one of those unsupported use cases.

    Outrageous price

    • Written by from Orlando

    This cable works fine... lets me use all of my old iOS devices with my iPhone 5. The absolutely ridiculous part of this is that Apple wants $40 for a cable, A CABLE, that will let me use my new iPhone with the hundreds of dollars of other Apple products I've already invested in. So... now I have to spend more. Not a great way for Apple to say thanks for investing in Apple products.

    Does not work in my 2009 Infiniti G37s. The audio system does not recognize my iPhone as being connected with this cord. BUT the compact lightning to 30-pin adapter (the one without the cord) DOES work. Unfortunately, I needed this one to go with my ProClip mount.
