    Simple and Easy

    The only reason I bought this product was to connect it to my y cable in my BMW so I can play my music and control the playback through my iDrive. Works for what I needed it for. No problems.

    Works great for me, so bought 4

    • Written by from Fountain Valley

    Works in all contexts I throw at it. Music, charging, etc. I have charging station at home & work, and use it for connecting to my base/holder in my car. Because of this adapter, I didnt have to pull my dash apart and run a new lightening cable. Fantastic. Also stays snug and isn't annoying in any way. I actually like using this versus an OEM lightening cable, because its wider instead of narrow, and much easier to work with quickly. Yes expensive, but worth price of admission for me, it flat-out works. Also using this & keeping the 30-pin on tap at all stations gives the flexibility to charge the pre-lightening interface devices that I own, and if friends come over.

    silly reviews. this works great

    • Written by from Danville

    This adapter does exactly what it needs to. If you're worried about your case breaking by having to pull of the bottom corners to be able to plug in the adapter, you need to get a better case. I keep this adapter in my purse and use it whenever needed, mostly in the car or at work. I have the original charger at home. Buying another one for my fiance to use with his 6

    Works fine for me

    • Written by from Houston

    I read all the reviews of this product before I bought it from the Apple store. I had a radio/speaker/dock for my iPhone 4s. When I traded up to the iPhone 5s the converter that came with the radio allowed the speakers to work but did not recharge the phone. This converter does both and is the perfect solution for me. The nice thing is I was told I could bring it back if it didn't work. So I think the solution may come on a case by case basis.

    Awesome product!

    • Written by from Pompano Beach

    I bought this for my iphone 5c. I have all the accessories for the iphone 4. The item is smaller then I expected but I actually like that more. It fits snugly. It works with the cords I have, and with my logitech speakers. It's secure on the speakers so I do not have to worry about it falling out. The sound quality is great, I do not notice any difference. The best part is it works with my otterbox defender case. I do not have to take the case off like many other reviewers have said. I am very satisfied with this product. I would definately recommend it.

    Important to know, DON'T GO CHEAP!

    • Written by from Nashville

    This is my third adapter but first one by Apple. DO NO BUY THE CHEAPER ONE! They may or may not work with docking stations. With Apple one, make sure the surface on the docking station is flat ( many are rounded) so it connects properly. If not, it will charge but you can't get audio. For my Bose and Sony docking station, it works great! Also connects to RCA cable adapter for older Bose Radio.

    works great!

    • Written by from Charlotte

    This works great with my iPhone case, on my car charger, and electric wall plug in chargers. Works best on authentic Apple brand chargers. My only complaint is that I think it is overpriced.

    Very Good

    • Written by from Sherman Oaks

    People giving this one star are obviously un-educated. Many are giving one star because it won't fit a case or cover. In reality Apple can't just extend the lightning cable end like that. So first get your facts straight and realize that you are wrong. Third party cords will be the same. And matters on each case you have. So check yourself as well.

    Works great

    • Written by from Derry

    Although it was a pain to have to buy the adapter in the first place when I bought my new Ipod nano 7th generation, it works great. It connects to all of my 30bit devices with no sound difficulties. I use it for my Hyundai Ipod adapter in my car and my IHome. No complaints.

    Exactly what I wanted & expected

    • Written by from Fontana

    I bought this so I could use a dock I bought when I had an iPhone 4 with my new iPhone 5. I knew it was about 1.5" tall (shorter would be preferable of course), so I didn't expect it to be shorter. It works just like I hoped! I have a Philips alarm clock/speaker dock and this works with it perfectly. Hopefully one day I'll find a shorter adapter, but for now I'm happy with this one. :)

    AWESOME

    • Written by from Tatamagouche

    I don't know what everyone is talking about... This thing has made it so much easier to continue to use my 1000 apple chargers I have around the house. I have never had a problem with it fitting my iphone 5s with a case on. I have had a slim case and otterbox defender on my phone... Fits no problem. I hAve used this little thing with my ihome kitchen dock and my alarm clock dock (can't remember the brand) NO PROBLEM. I love this thing. It lets me keep using my old docks and chargers. Great product apple!

    Works with mercedes 350 30 pin

    • Written by from MESQUITE

    Love to listen to books on tape and bought this to be able to play them through my stereo system in my 2009 m350 which is equipped with the 30 pin adapter. It works fine. I'm sure it's less expensive that havering mercies refit it and I can still use my 30 pin devices. Totally satisfied.

    • Written by from Fairway

    This adapter does exactly what the description says it will do. My car is wired for the old 30 pin iPhone and iPod. When I got the iPhone 5 this small adapter perfectly converted my 30 pin so I can now play music through my iPhone 5 in my car.

    Does the Job

    • Written by from Griffin

    I must say that I got this device to use it in the way it was meant to be used: charging, syncing, and playing audio. I have mine for some while now (since I purchased my iPad air the day it came out) and i like it. It works and does what the DESCRIPTION says it will do well for me. I knew I would not be able to use a case with this adapter which was find with me because I was mainly using it with my docking station at night. I mean you're connecting a 30 pin to 8 pin, there's a big difference in size. Which I understand this may be a deal breaker for some, just not for me in my case.It's not like I use an Otterbox with my iPad and it's going to take me several minutes to get it on and off. I use a smart cover with a clear back case.

    I've seen a lot of people complaining because they can't play video with this device that clearly states in the description that it doesn't support video output. Um I don't know what to say about that. I do see a adapter that can be used for that in the Apple Store. So I can't speak on that other than the fact it states that it will not support VIDEO OUTPUT.

    So basically if you are looking for an adapter to connect to old accessories from previous apple products to: listen to music, charge, or sync than this is the product for you. Otherwise you may want to do a little research and be sure to read before purchasing. Also it states that it may not work properly with all accessories...

    Should read before I bought

    • Written by from Vandenberg AFB

    I bought this thing when I upgraded my phone. The person at the Store never said anything about it not working with a case on it.. So I asked him. he told me it would be fine. I have a slim silicone case I bought at the store as well.
    I have tried for 3 weeks to get this thing to work. I went on the web site to see if there were any others having the same problem.
    sure enough I took the case off and it worked...
    REALLY?? I am thinking the young man was worried I wouldn't buy his bundle if I knew I had to take the case off.. Not true. I would have bought it anyway. this entire time I thought I had paid 30.00 and got faulty equipment.

    Exactly What I Needed

    • Written by from Deerfield

    Purchased this adapter to connect to my iPhone 5s to my car stereo system. Have a hard wired 30 pin cable in my car that connects to audio system. This adapter is exactly what I needed to play music. I can control my iPhone 5s music using the steering wheel or the audio units controls. The other reviews were correct in that the case interferes with the connection, which was the same with my iPhone 4s. Would highly recommend the Apple adapter.
