    It does not work with the HDMI 30 pin adapter

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    When I purchased the I Phone 5 I was given the impression that this adapter would simply transfer all the same data from the Lightning connector to the 30 pin connector. This is not the case for video. If you plan on doing video you need to buy an additional cable that is $50. and by the way this $50 dollar cable will not plug into your TV. you need something additional that cost another $30. When you do the math if you want your iPhone 5? to work like your iPhone 4S you need to spend around $110.00. My advise is stick with the 4s.

    Works with BMW

    • Written by from Fort Lauderdale

    I have a 2007 BMW with the iPhone Y-cable that has a 30-pin connector. With this car option and using the BMW Y-cable, I am able to fully access the music on my iPhone and use the iDrive controller and screen and steering wheel buttons. I just upgraded my iPhone from 4S to the 5S so needed a 30-pin to lighting connector that will still work with my current car's electronics. This cable worked flawlessly and I maintained all functionality.

    Of course in newer BMW's the point would be moot, as you can control the music on the iPhone though the car's electronics using Bluetooth. But I am not ready to get trade in my car.

    TOO SHORT! 0.2 meter? A 1.0 meter option would be nice!

    • Written by from Waikoloa

    I own a Beats By Dre Beatbox. I need a 30 pin adapter cord that I can plug into the 30 pin plug from the Beatbox then go to a lightning plug so I can charge and use the phone while its plugged in. All apple offers is a cord length of 0.2 meters which is 7.8 inches. That is way too short, and worthless! Come on Apple, please offer a longer cord besides this stub sized cord. A 1.0 meter would be nice!!!

    Functional but WAY overpriced

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    I purchased this adapter to connect my iPhone 5 with my G35. (I use an aftermarket kit to integrate with the factory system.) This cord works just fine. But at the thirty nine dollars MSRP, it is way, way overpriced. It is so overpriced that it makes me mad and makes me not want to buy Apple products in the future. The last time a company made me this mad was 8 years ago when Sony had their rootkit fiasco, and I haven't bought a single product from them since. I'm not saying I will boycott Apple, but I am thinking about it. I also seriously considered not buying the cord, but I paid 7x that to buy the aftermarket system and have it installed, and without this cord it is worthless.

    Worth the extra 10 dollars

    • Written by from Spring Valley

    I first bought the $29.99 adapter for my car stereo but once I tried to connected it, it didn't fit with my defender case and who wants to be taking of and on a case anyways went back returned it and paid an extra $10 for this one and it fits perfect
    So I would say If you have a case on your iPhone this one is worth it

    Useless for...

    • Written by from BAYAMON

    I have an Apple iPhone 30-pin to VGA cable. I bought this Apple iPhone lightning to 30-pin adapter. I wanted to project my new iPhone 5's screen for my UPR students using a projector with a VGA connector on my Apple iPhone. Upon combining both adapters I get a "This Accessory is Not Supported by iPhone", OK?. So $50 + $50 = $100 gone to scat. Is Apple willing to do anything about this? There was no warning indicating this doesn't work. Three incompatible Apple products in just one generational change. Not very honest, hard-working or professional. By the by, will we ever get to use Flash without having to buy an even later generation???

    Very disappointed with adapter solutions...

    • Written by from Montreal

    The new lightning connector would be great if Apple actually created some useful adapters and cabling. I need to adapt an iPhone 5 and iPod (5th Generation) for a speaker dock less than a year old...what a nightmare. The 30-pin adapter extends my iPhone and iPod so high that they are very unstable. The 30-pin 0.2m cable is so rigid and short that the iPhone and iPad will not lie flat. For god sakes, give us a cable longer than 8 inches. I'm really disappointed that I'm having to search out scarce and less than elegant 3rd party solutions. This is just like the new Thunderbolt connector on my new iMac...all hype, few products supporting it, and of course way overpriced.

    Does not support video

    • Written by from royal oak

    Pricey and does not support video. I understand Apple is working on one that does, but I'm afraid to hear the price on that one, let alone the wait for its arrival.

    WORST Charger Ever!!!!! DO NOT BUY!!!!

    • Written by from Sanbornville

    I have only had my iPod 5th Generation Charger for about 6 Months and i am already having to buy a brand new charger because my iPod will no longer charge. One of my friends has an iPhone 5 and she has had hers for about 1 year and she has had to buy two Chargers so far its like every six months we have to buy a new charger. And I'm very easy and careful on my chargers so that stuff like this doesn't happen but the chargers are so tiny that the will eventually break. I don't know if this is Apples way if making us pay for more stuff but its annoying a stupid that i have to keep on buying new chargers every six months.

    No

    • Written by from Clayton

    The charger came with my iPod touch 5 that I bought 3 months ago and worked pretty well up until last week when I noticed there was a tear in it at the top of the cable. It worked for a couple more days before it just gave up. It really needs to be improved so the cable doesn't tear like that. All the other cables I've had for my apple products have worked well so I don't understand why this one gave up.

    For those who purchased Otter Box Defender Cases

    • Written by from Fayetteville

    I ordered two adapters. The type of case I'm using prevents the adapter from fitting into the phone. The only way to use this adapter is to remove the phone from the case. I returned these to Apple. Perhaps these would work with a different case such as Speck. The odd thing is the charger that comes with the iPhone 5 works perfectly so why don't these?

    Stopped working for no reason

    • Written by from Exton

    I have this adapter and the smaller l(square with no cord) adapters. The adapter with the cord suddenly died and no longer charges the phone. Its kept in a drawer and I only use when needed' so there should be no reason why it stopped working. I have tried it with many different cables all with same result.

    The other (no cord) adapters still work even though I bought them at the same time. So I guess I'll stick with them. But I liked the corded one because it was less likely to get lost.

    Not work on my VW 2011 Touran GT

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    It can charge but no audio playback at all.

    I will exchange this one for the cord-less version which proven works on my car audio system.
    Although the cord-less Adapter's lightning plug is too large for my iPhone 5 case.

    I have to remove the case before use...

    The absolute WORST charger ever

    • Written by from Snellville

    This is the worst charger I have EVER experienced. It seems as if it were designed to break just so I have to buy a new one every two months. The price to replace a simple charger is beyond ridiculous. Honestly, I don't have the money to keep replacing my charger over and over again. With the old charger, I never experienced so many problems, it is just with this one that I am. I am extremely disappointed in this product. Right now as I write this, my phone is completely dead because in the middle of the night my charger quit working completely, so now I have to take time out of my day to track down a way-too-expensive charger and buy yet another one.

    Terrible Charger

    • Written by from Gibsonia

    I am on my 3rd iPhone 5 charger, although yes, apple has great customer service in replacing these chargers, it is a HUGE inconvenience to have to go replace a charger about every 2 months. I don't know what it is but the cord keeps "severing" and it will become very touchy in how the phony lays while it charges to all of a sudden not charging at all. Not to mention how short the cord is. In general I truly dislike this charger for the new Apple products.

    Junk

    • Written by from halifax

    Stops working after a few weeks of being in my car. I've been through three of these and apple wont replace them because they claim they where water damaged but they have never seen water it must be the moisture in the air but if the moisture in the air can corrode this $45 cable and render it unusable well then there is obviously a problem

    Adapters Rule! I Love This Adapter!!

    • Written by from Mesa

    I've been buying electronic adapters since the late 60's when I was a just a kid! Because I always thought of new ways to hook up devices. Radio Shack *almost* always had the adapters I needed.

    Trust me, if you can't find the adapter you need, and no one makes it, that totally hurts.

    This product is well made, sturdy, and does the job. Yeah, $29 is better than $39; but if you can't get it anywhere else? $39 is fine with me.

    I have 3 tiny 'boomboxes' that all have that 30-pin connector. All is good now. I'm totally satisfied.

    My case on my iPhone 5 is an Otter Box Defender. Buy the best. And it has a huge, thick rubber flap that folds down, no problems with the Lightning plug.

    Not good at all.

    • Written by from Arlington

    You're gonna be able to attach to old accessories for your iPhone 4S, I didn't have any problem with the sound, what I couldn't understand is Why Apple design this cable with an thick plug!!.
    If you want to use it with a case or even a bumper, you better have an case with a big hole to connect it, or have your iPhone naked, otherwise forget about it!!!
