    Mostly happy with it

    • Written by from Fredericton

    I bought this at an Apple store, and was shocked at the high price ($45). However, I had got a really cool new dock for Christmas that I really wanted to use that only had a 30-pin connector, so I got it.

    I'm very happy with it, and glad I bought it! It syncs with my dock perfectly AND supports charging. However, the cord is very short, and it's hard to rest it on the stand with out the tension in the cord wanting to flip it off. Once I found a good position though, it was fine. I'm looking forward to using it in my car!

    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 charge iPad

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    Disappointed that it only performs half of its required function--I can use it to play music on speaker devices, but it does not charge. I consider this a major defect in this product, which, as many have noted, was not cheap.

    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.

    Overpriced but necessary.

    • Written by from Richmond

    In a desperate moment where I couldn't find my charger and was at 10% battery I drove to the apple store and bought this. Just to confirm this adapter DOES work with my 2012 Nissan Versa iPod integration perfectly (steering wheel controls, in dash display, etc). It's good quality but $40 is awfully steep for something you're basically forced to purchase because you supported the company by buying their latest device, but what can you do?

    iphone adapter for Audi A5

    • Written by from broomall

    I have an Audi a5 without Navigation. I used a Ipod/Iphone cable with the "Blue" Grommet. This new adapter allows my IPhone to connect seamlessly, with the added benefit that I can now stream Pandora and the AUDI MMI system recognizes the songs. With previous IPhones the audio system would time out while streaming Pandora and revert to music on my iphone.

    This cable is pricey at $39.00 but I wasn't willing to take a chance on a cable from a third party manufacturer. Also, the extra 8 inches on the cable makes maneuvering the phone much easier.

    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.

    Nope. Doesn't work in the car.

    • Written by from Laurel

    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.

    Will fit with Otterbox Defender and works with my systems

    • Written by from Woodinville

    I was reluctant to buy this based on the other reviews of spotty compatibility and case to plug fit issues. I am relieved that it works and does what I got it for. The length was to be expected, as it is in the specs. The most annoying thing is that I would need to buy an adapter in the first place, if you know what I mean.

    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

    A little disappointed

    • Written by from Loveland

    This adapter has a very small I mean small cable Seems to work for audio, works well with my pioneer receiver but with my ihome it doesnt charge it plays though, the cable should be at least a foot long so we can lay it next to our docking centers not hang them I think all of us iphone buyers should of got one of these with our purchase, letting us know how they work with different devices., I think every one that buys a new iPhone or ipod are going to be disappointed for awhile, because nothing will work the same as there older iphones and iPods I am. and the wost thing there are no docking stations or clock radios out for us to buy

    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...
