    Update Needed ASAP!!!!!

    • Written by from Chicago

    I really dislike this product. I've had it replaced twice in less than 3 weeks because it wouldn't work on my iPad or my iPhone 6+. After reading others reviews I learned that I have to restart both devices if the adapter doesn't register on them. An update is needed so that this problem doesn't continue to occur. Until then, I suggest passing on the product.

    Absolute garbage. Using an iPhone 6+; whenever I'm mirroring content that is not stored directly on my phone, the picture is fine. Any streaming content turns into garbage. If a video is buffering, my phone might show it at a less than ideal resolution- no big deal. Somehow, though, that turns into lots of noise and static on the screen. Bands of snow show up across the screen with the loading/buffering circle discernible amongst them. How does that make sense when my phone's screen would show the video just fine?
    I'd return it, but I'm days outside the return period. My mistake for giving it a chance. Waste of $50.

    Got to reset.

    • Written by from Herndon

    My adapter quit working like other reviewers. I did the hard reset (hold power and home key until Apple symbol appears) and all was well.

    Over priced lightning!

    • Written by from Tempe

    I bought this product and used it for approximately two months and it just quit working. Plus ever since I purchased it it never worked on my iPad Mini. I was very disappointed with this product. I hate to complain about things and be such a nag but for such a small little plug it is very pricey and did not perform very well at all. Please try and rectify this product as I am really interested in re-purchasing it. Thank you.

    No Longer Works!!!

    • Written by from Oregon

    I am extremely frustrated with Apple after the ISO 8.3 update. I have an iPad 4th generation and have been using the lightening adapter and HDMI cable since 2013 to watch movies on my TV and now it has suddenly stopped working. I even bought a NEW adapter and HDMI cable but it still will not work. My screen is just black. I am beyond frustrated at the amount of money I have wasted trying to resolve this problem. Apple needs to fix this problem ASAP!!! This is not acceptable.

    works great

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Read the reviews, went into the Apple Store at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto. I told them about the reviews and that this might not work with 8.3 or you might have to reset your ipad. Well, I decided to buy it and test it out to see if it was worth it. It was. Took my HDMI cable from my Samsung TV, hooked it up to my ipad mini2 and bam, works perfectly with great resolution. So, I don't know why so many people are having problems with this. The Apple store people said it could be the device and/or tv, or even possibly the hdmi cable. But, it does work. It works with 8.3. And my device did not need to be reset for it to work. I do agree the price is kind of high but all and all you can stream from your ipad to your tv without a problem which makes it good in my book.

    Lighting cable

    • Written by from Sherman Oaks

    I have an av lighting cable that can only be plugged when my battery pack iphone 6 plus cover if taken off otherwise it wont plug into it. It is annoying that it does that. It plugs great when I recharge my phone in the wall plug using the same cover but not when it comes to using it with the av hdmi plug.

    The reviews I have read from others having problem with the av hdmi lighting plug makes me wonder if it is the same issue I have with mine.

    VERY DISGUSTED!! I'm DONE with Apple!!

    • Written by from Guilford

    I have gotten maybe 20 uses of this product, and as of TODAY --- this incrediblely over priced piece of garbage as just died on me!! Unlike so many other poor reviews, I'm fortunate enough to have wasted my money only once. HOWEVER, this 30 pin connection is the single most horrible design this company has ever produced. I have wasted--- FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET well over $200. In charging cables alone!! I'm on cable #9 as I write this

    I've read ALL the reviews regarding the charging cables and now this product, and clearly- YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, APPLE. A VERY, VERY, BIG ONE!! Based on the now hundreds of reviews I've read.... I'm not the only one that feels this way. The fact that you have no interest in either remedying the situation, and returning to the much more reliable earlier connection- DISGUSTS ME!! Your all thieves, and I'm sick of being your victim! I'm shocked you haven't been sued yet, and if I could find a pro bono attorney to take on the task of SUING YOU FOR RIPPING OFF MILLIONS OF US, I would!!

    On a final note, I bought this iPad and i use it on a daily basis to enhance and improve the quality of life for the elderly dementia & Alzeheimer patients I work with every day. It has become a wonderful tool to share programs, games, entertainment and interactive activities. But when I can't rely on equipment that I spend my PERSONAL money on, and then read pages & pages upon complaints and reviews of customers that have the exact same problems, it makes my blood boil! Your customers are not made of money, Apple!! I'm in a VERY low paying field of therapeutic recreation, I've spent my own money on my iPad and accessories to improve the quality of my residents lives, and you as a company should be throughly ashamed of yourselves!! Your lack of care and respect for your customers is inexcusable!

    doesn't work anymore

    • Written by from Red Deer

    I use this with my mini IPad, it was always sporadic, but now it won't work at all. Very frustrating since I like to take my movies with me in my camper. Too expensive to buy a new one, has Apple replaced anybody else's adapter for free or for a small fee?

    Only lasted 2 weeks

    • Written by from Dayton

    After using it for around two weeks it stopped working. I was using with my iPhone and it was connecting to my Acura.

    It was great while it lasted, though.

    I'm taking it in for a swap, I hope.

    Pure Luck Incarnate

    • Written by from Augusta

    I'm not sure what Apple was going for with this item. I bought it recently and it worked marvelously, but after an incident I had to procure another adapter to replace the previous one. The problem is, as soon as I plug it up there was no picture or sound. I was flabbergasted at this, and I will not waste my time buying another one, becuase I could end up buying another dud.

    Works just fine.

    • Written by from Madison

    I don't know what the problem for other recent reviewers on iOS 8.3 is, but it's working fine for me. I just got it for my recently bought iPad mini 3. I also have the iPhone 6 Plus, and it works ok with both.

    I have been enjoying gaming on the iPad like I never did on any phone, including the bigger iPhone. The size is just right, not small and not too big for portability. But I wanted to port the games to the bigger screen when I'm home (the 50in TV).
    Mind you, I have the apple TV, but the lag on it when mirroring via AirPlay, makes it unusable for gaming.
    Enter this Lightning to HDMI adapter. The lag is noticeable better, although still there, but kept to a minimum. Now I can play my favorite racing game Asphalt 8 on the biggest screen in the house!

    Side notes:
    Mirroring, means it's the SAME image from your iOS device to your TV or monitor. The iPad has a different shape than a TV or monitor, meaning it won't fill the full screen to the 16:9 aspect ratio from the 4:3 of the iPad. I wish there would be some way to do it once you start mirroring. It DOES it for video though, either on my TV or even on my monitor.
    The iPhones & iPod (5 and after), do have the 16:9 aspect ratio, so the apps that let you rotate to landscape, will be able to fill up the TV or monitor screen, well, almost. I say almost, because at least on my TV, it doesn't. There's a small frame like space left out. But it does fill it up through AirPlay mirroring on the apple TV oddly enough.

    Apple, please fix this. I know you can make it so it's all full screen across devices, I know you can.

    iOS 8.3 broke it

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Hi Apple,

    When are you going to fix this or announce a refund for this problem. I have been a faithful Apple customer since 1984.

    I'm a grad student that teaches a couple of classes a semester. Using Keynote or Powerpoint with an iPad Air was awesome, I didn't have to lug around a laptop anymore. But it was too good to last. I guess that would cut into your MacBook sales.

    It's strange because it still works with my iPhone 5s, but it doesn't work with the iPad.

    Let us know if we can return them for a refund. Or is a class-action lawsuit necessary? Or contacting the NY Times? Or Wall Street Journal?

    Very Unhappy Customer (minus $50)

    delivers as expected

    • Written by from Northbrook

    despite other reviews, worked fine right out of the box, delivering 1080p from an iPhone 5s on iOS 8.3. The ability to charge while casting is a nice feature.

    Extremely poor quality

    • Written by from vilnius

    After very short (just a few months), very infrequent and very careful use it simply stopped working. Now I only get message - "no signal, please check your cable". I bought it at authorized Apple store, for the price I paid - it is a robbery! All Apple cables are so so poor. Not recommended at all!!!
