    Disappointed

    • Written by from Staten Island

    I work in television and have some downtime between shows. I'm surrounded by monitors and wanted to put on Netflix through my iPhone 5. I have an apple TV (carrying it around would be a hassle opposed to a cable.) The airplay and the netflix app work great on Apple TV. Sometimes on the apple tv netflix takes a second to buffer and to get to a clear hd picture but with this cord there was never a clear picture streaming Netflix, great wifi connection and all. Just a jumpy picture from time to time and even looked SD. I hope other people have better luck than I, but I'm going to have to return it unfortunately. A bad picture drives me crazy and I can't get over how a hard line isn't up to par with a wireless connection.

    Loose connection due to faulty and/or redesigned claws

    • Written by from Virkby

    The new Apple MD098ZM/A adapter connector hooks up loosely and does not secure a solid connection! The connection is frequently lost and becomes annoying to the point that it is just too aggravating. My charger's 30-pin connection hooks up just fine. I examined the connectors carefully and compared differences. The MD098ZM/A adapter has slightly smaller claws, claw ends are more pointed and you can feel that it does not hook up as it is designed or intended to. I will return it for an exchanged item or cash. I use only original Apple components. This was however a let down by Apple considering the prices Apple charge!!

    Not limiting to certain apps

    • Written by from Sacramento

    Although it's overpriced it allows me to watch any app on my flatscreen! I don't need an audio cable anymore. The image quality is great. I use it everyday to watch Netflix, Hulu, Jtv, Veetle, among others

    Does not provide sound for Maps

    • Written by from Markham

    This cable works well and it mirror iPhone 5 display with good quality. I can watch movies, youtube or listen to songs and I can hear the sound on the TV.

    I had an issue that the sound of the Maps application does not come through this cable. The sound still goes through iPhone speakers. I can only see the video of the Maps with no sound.
    I wanted to use this cable to connect my phone to my car screen and use iPhone as GPS system but so far this is not working as I can not hear the direction sound through my car speakers with this cable.
    Apple can you please fix it

    Awesome for Sling Adapter (Dish Network)

    • Written by from O fallon

    I have an Iphone 5, Dish Network, and a Sling Adapter attached to the Dish DVR. Using the IPhone 5 Dish app I can watch any show that's live on my Dish Satellite or watch any saved movie! When I travel I can plug my iphone into any TV using this Lightning to HDMI cable and watch all of my shows! I also like watching Vevo from my IPhone on a TV since YouTube blocks the Vevo content on Blu Ray Players and 99% of TV's. The TV resolution for the HDMI output on the IPhone 5 is awesome! I did notice that some content does not display in 100% fullscreen. The Dish app displays the content in 98% screen with no distortion. I have a Panasonic plasma TV and it has not caused any black bar burn in.

    Works Great

    • Written by

    Plugged in my iPhone 5 to my TV and it's as easy as that! Both audio and video are clear. I've used it for slideshows, movies on my phone, and Netflix streaming so far. This will be perfect for streaming movies over LTE to any hotel HDTV. It does seem a bit costly though.

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from Portsmouth

    Setup: Samsung Smart TV, iPad mini with IOs7, this cable and a HDMI cable (which works by the way)
    Connected all devices, switched TV source to HDMI input and ... nothing. £39 wasted.

    Useless for development

    • Written by from Morden

    I bought this adapter so I could use it while developing an app that needed separate video output. It seemed perfect because it has the hdmi output as well as a passthrough lightning plug so you can keep it attached to your computer for development/debugging as well.

    Unfortunately, it only passes through power, and does not show up as the original device you plugged in, so its useless to me.

    Works fine a first

    • Written by from Tecumseh

    I purchased this to use to connect to my projector in my classroom. It worked great for about 3 months than all of sudden it stopped working entirely. Supposedly this has to do with the ios update? Now I am unable to use my iphone or my ipad with my projector in my classroom. Thanks a lot apple.

    Enables me to stream Netflix to HD TV without WiFi!

    • Written by from Portland

    I bought this product to use at a vacation cabin - I get cellular data but there's no WiFi. This adapter allows me to stream movies from my iPhone 5's Netflix app directly to our HDTV. This method has been very reliable, the installation is simple, and the picture/sound quality has been comparable to streaming Netflix through my TIVO via WiFi at home. I'm completely satisfied, and now I don't have to rent DVD's when we go to the cabin. It's like magic!

    CAUTION: Pay attention to your data usage if you don't have an unlimited cellular data plan. Movies use up a lot of MBytes!

    Bad design—does not fit Apple 5s cases!

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    This adapter is the complete opposite of Apple's "Forward thinking" slogan. Why would Apple design an adapter that has a different size head than the cables that comes with the 5s phones? The Apple leather cases have holes cut just for these smaller OEM cables thus making the adapter useless since it won't fit through the hole. What the heck were they thinking?! I was willing to swallow the premium asking price just to make some of my cables usable again (especially that pricey Composite AV cable), of course it's never a simple and cheap solution. Whoever designed these adapters and cases should be sacked for having tunnel-design-vision. Forward thinking my a**.

    Works great!

    • Written by from Houston

    I was a bit skeptical about this product after reading through the reviews but decided to give it a try. I went into the Apple store this afternoon and had them hook up my iPad to one of their televisions using the adapter BEFORE I made the purchase. Worked exactly as I wanted in the store and also when I got it home.

    Not sure what the folks having problems are doing (or not doing) but for me, it was definitely worth the trip to the store. And, because it's working so well, I can overlook the price though would have been great if it cost about $20 less (smile ... I hope you're listening Apple Marketing since price is a recurring theme in these reviews).

    Great product

    • Written by from Pond Inlet

    Really good adaptor. Downloaded movies on itunes, put movies in mini iPad connect to tv. Great quality watching movies with it. Plus it mirrors the mini iPad. My daughter connects iPad to tv and play her favourite apps, games or movies. Price seems high but worth the buy.

    Works Great

    • Written by from Tustin

    Does exactly what is says it will. Looks good on the TV. I love that when you play a flying game, you get the pilots view of the surrounding area etc. on the TV and the instrument panel on the iPad Mini screen!

    This also comes in handy when working on a stop motion video. It's a lot easier to see the onion skin on a big TV then try to watch on the iPad Mini screen.

    It's great that you can keep the device charged while watching on the TV.

    Videos in landscape mode shrink to portrait mode on TV

    • Written by from Willich

    I bought a Lightning Digital AV Adapter to watch my camera app videos on TV. The videos were taken in landscape mode. Unfortunately just the preview appears in landscape mode on TV for a second. Then they shrink to portrait mode. But not every video. Some of them have the correct display mode. This makes me angry!

    Photos or videos from the video app are displayed correctly too. These issues are just with the photo app. I tried this with two different iPhone 5 (iOS7) and three different TV's.

    Because of this and the extremely high price I just can give two stars :-(

    Doesn't seem to work, yet.

    • Written by from Brampton

    After reading the reviews I thought I would take a chance and get one. Sure enough, when I tried to watch a movie from my iPhone 5 on my TV it didn't work right. The picture on my tv would go to snow, then the it would work again, then snow. Thought maybe it was a loose or bad connection, but trying the other remedies didn't seem to help. Sync'd another movie onto the phone and now the playback was just fine on the TV. So I re-sync'd the first moive to my phone, and the playback was better, but not great. Still would loose the picture every 10-20 seconds. Going to try re-syncing the movie one more time, and give up. Looks like I will be returning this product and trying another one, because, hey, I still wanna watch my movie from my iPhone on my TV. Just wish it would have worked the first time, especially for $50.00 spent.
