    Brought new life to our TV

    • Written by from Madison

    Simple product, and does exactly what it says - streams 1080p from our iPad Air. We connected immediately to our 6 year old Vizio TV and haven't had an issue after 2 months of use. We streamed the entire World Cup in HD from our iPad, and we've just started a Netflix account. This has brought life back to our TV since we don't have cable. I'm not sure what all the poor reviews are about. Research your device to see what resolution you'll get. $50 is pricey, but when compared to a cable package? Come on.

    Reminder: at this point, iPads put out 4:3 ratio. This means when directly mirroring your iPad home screen, your HDTV will be seriously cropped on all sides. However, when streaming video formats the iPad recognizes (Netflix, World Cup from Univision, etc.) the iPad outputs full 16:9 ratio, filling your screen in HD. You want one of these!

    Doesn't work with iPad Air

    • Written by from Panama City Beach

    The cable does not work with the iPad Air. I bought it to work with my DISH Hopper via Dishanywhere when traveling.
    Sound connects, but there is no video. I tried via a receiver and directly to two HD HDMI equipped TV's. The same result
    I also tried several input signal and still no video.
    iPad by itself connects without a ptoblem to Dishanywhere.

    That makes Apple 2 for 2 for expensive junk.
    I also bought a lightning SDHC card reader. It also failed to perform as described.

    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 :-(

    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).

    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.

    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.

    Stopped working after less than a dozen uses

    • Written by from Cambridge

    I got less than a dozen uses out of the Lightning Digital AV Adapter before it quit working. As an apple user since the mid-80s, all I can say is this is yet another example of the demise of Apple quality. Well it was marvelous while it lasted!

    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.

    Worked OK for awhile

    • Written by from Greensburg

    I also have reached the stage where the adapter only works when I manipulate the cable just right. Otherwise, no sound, no picture or sound, or fuzzy picture. If you aren't supposed to bend the cable tail, then make it rigid so there's no chance of creating a short. Poor design for the price. When it works, it's great, but it takes a few minutes each time I use it to dial it in. And then, don't bump it!

    Lightning Digital AV Adapter broke in three months!

    • Written by from wildwood

    Very upset that this adapter broke after only three months, sadly i didn't even use it more than fifteen times within the three months. Tried it on two iphone 5s's, iphone 5c, ipad air, and four different HDMI cables. I just did that to make sure some setting didn't mess it up, cause it used to work for all of those devices, but not anymore! Do not buy and if Apple stands by their products, i would like a new adapter or a refund! I have the receipt, bought only three months ago!

    Does not work after iOS 8.1.3 update

    • Written by from Sparks

    I purchased this product prior to the update and it worked pretty well. The picture wasn't amazing but it was clear and it mirrored my iPad perfectly. Sometimes my iPad would not register the adapter or it would be slow. But, I was okay with all of that until my adapter stopped working completely with the new update. Now all I get is a black screen if I plug the adapter in. I would not recommend this product until Apple comes out with an update to fix this bug.

    Awesome!

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I do not understand the comments about this product not working? I also do not understand how people can purchase this product without reading the tech specs about it, and then coming on here and complaining about things that it won't do or why it's incompatible with their equipment, etc… when all they have to do is take a minute and read the tech specs. All the answers are there and they would save time and money to find out whether it would work or not with their current setup. This thing is awesome and has saved us from having to purchase another external device to play movies, TV shows, etc… since it produces HD quality for such things!
    Just do the research and enjoy, and/or save! Great product Apple…As usual!

    Works Great

    • Written by from Greenwich

    I have a 2011 GTI and needed an adapter to work with the 30 pin connector that comes with the car. It works perfectly and has just enough length that the phone can sit in the center console cup holder.

    One nice thing is I don't have to take my case off the phone to plug it in.

    • Written by from San francisco

    This is amazing. I can mirror my iPhone 6 plus on my 32 inch screen and it looks cool. I play all the games that is only optimize for iPhone 6 &6plus and there is no lag. I see all my YouTube movies, abc shows, nbc shows, cbs shows, the cw app on this device with no problem and it fill up my hole tv when I use the YouTube app. I can't aford wifi or cable so this av cable connected to my iPhone 6 plus is perfect since I have unlimited 4G network

    Simple yet sophisticated

    • Written by from Pasadena

    I'm not sure why some users are having difficulties ... as soon as I connected the adaptor, I was able to watch home videos, view photos, and best of all, watch movies. The image quality is perfect on the movies as is the audio quality.

    Apple is awesome! Such a small little adaptor ... with such great possibilities!

    Works great

    Not sure why so many have an issue with this. Yes, it's extremely overpriced but it works fine. I use it at least once a week to watch movies on my 50" plasma with no issues whatsoever. I've used with both my iPhone and my iPad.

    Product works as advertised

    • Written by from Midlothian

    I had read reviews of this and another cable of people claiming it did not fit even with the Apple case. Rather than order online I drove to the Apple store and asked them if I could test it there on the spot. Of course, they were offended at the idea that Apple would not make it compatible with their own case I as have on my iPhone 5s and iPad air.

    In short, it fit perfectly. I brought it home and it works perfectly on my HDTV.

    Do I wish the price were a bit cheaper? Sure, just like everything else I own with the Apple logo, so get over it. It's supply and demand. As more third party knock offs are made, perhaps you can take your chance with their junk. For now, I and others will pay the price and it works.
