    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.

    Prior i bought this, i thought it will be applicable for my previous VGA Adapter for my Ipad2.
    unfortunately, the seller at Paragon SG did not explain that for VGA adapter only can be applicable with new VGA Cable!!!!!
    now, i only can use this to charge using my previous charger??? :(

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Expensive garbage

    • Written by from chico

    I have a new, large, expensive desktop stereo I recently purchased almost solely because it had an iphone dock as well as an iphone capable stereo in my car. Purchased this adapter because my phone will now not fit on the big stereo with the non-wired adapter due to the docking area being too small. This adapter does not work on my stereo at all for music, it only charges the phone as the music plays from the phone itself. As for the vehicle, all I get is scratchy static. This is the first time i have ever left a negative review on an apple product but this is ridiculous. With how much we pay for the phone, cases, accessories and all the money in YOUR music store, you can't produce a consistent, reliable little adapter cord? All these reviews are mixed with the functionality of this product on the same docking stations/cars. It doesn't even work on my Bose dock yet it does for others. I now have a full music library stored in a device that I can only access with earbuds. I just spent $40 on a five inch long worthless cord that probably costs $1.50 to produce, thank you Apple

    Doesn't work well to play music!!!

    • Written by from Arlington

    I bought this in hopes of using it to connect to my 2010 VW Golf. It has a built in 30-pin adapter and now that I have an iphone 5 it is almost useless. with this adapter, all the functionality is actually there but the Music, for some reason, sounds TERRIBLE, there is so much static. I also tried it on my Altec Lansing iphone dock, sounds terrible on that too...

    way too short

    • Written by from East Stroudsburg

    I am using the cable with a bose sound dock and it's almost not usable. If you can picture half of the McDonald's arch, but flatten it out a bit, that is what it looks like when plugged into my iPhone. Plus the iPhone is upside down and the charger end is up in the air, meaning the phone won't lay flat on the counter. I guess there are a ton of other instances where short might be better, so I guess the complaint is that they should maybe make 2 or 3 lengths. I would imagine the same problem will exist with all brands of docs. I don't think this problem is specific to just the bose sound dock.

    My first negative comment...

    • Written by from Houston

    I've never has an issue with Apple products until this lightning to 30 pin adapter situation. I have a specific case that the 30 pin to lightning adapter can't be used for due to case design this should be able to be worked around with this 0.2 lightning to 30 pin cable HOWEVER Apple made the lightning end of this cable thicker than the lightning/USB charging cable for some reason and as such this cable is useless for my application (where the charging cable they designed works fine). Why the thicker cable end? It makes my iPhone to my car stereo impossible at the moment. First Apple fail ever for me.

    no iPod Control

    I have a 2009 Infiniti and was looking forward to connecting to my new iPhone5 instead of an old iPod and purchased this cable. Now I find out that it does not support "iPod Out" which renders the connection to my car inoperable. Bummer!
