    Racket

    I use my phone to display video on TV ( through apples proprietary and expensive 30 pin adapter cord ). Of course when I upgraded my phone to a 6S Plus, it has the new Lightning plug. So I bought an expensive 30 pin to Lightning adapter ( $30 ? Really Apple, Apple, $30 ??? ), only to find out the adapter only supports audio, not video. So do I have to buy a new cable to play video on TV every time you decide to "improve" the product by changing the dimensions of the cord that plugs into the phone. What a racket !

    Doesn't work with cell phone case!

    I can't believe that Apple, known for great design, would design an adapter that's too short to work when your phone is in a case (which most are). Back to the store it goes -- I wish I had read all of the poor reviews before I bought this product!

    Works for Nano & Bose Portable SoundDock

    I got this to continue using my Bose Portable SoundDock (2011) with a new iPod Nano (7th G). It charges the iPod, plays all audio and the dock's remote still works with this adapter to change volume, fwd/ rewind, change playlists, etc. Was the best solution in comparison to Bluetooth adapters which can't charge the iPod. I even tried an AUX cable which reduced volume to half plus the remote didn't work.

    Won't work with a case on your phone

    I too bought these in the hopes of being able to use them with the Sony Clock radios that both my wife and I have. Found out the only way they'd work is if the case is removed from the iPhone (5SE for my wife and 6S for me).

    I'd really like to see Apple redesign this with a longer Lightning connector and perhaps two or three spacers of various thicknesses. That way, the length of the Lightning connector could be customized by the user by the appropriate selection of spacers and would allow this to be used with any number of cases or without a case entirely.

    Doesn't Work!

    Purchased this so I could use my older Bose sound docks with my newer IPod nano. It charges the iPod but the audio does not work. I get an error message that states "unsupported, accessory is not supported." Prior to purchasing this iPod I was told this adapter would be all I need to continue to use my sounddocks. But, no, that's not the case. I can't upgrade my sound docks so they can be "supported" by Apple. I'm a retired school teacher and can't afford that. Why can't you keep this simple and easy. I'm so disappointed.

    NOT CHARGING

    I bought this when I got my iPad mini. This just won't work with my iPhone 6 and now it won't work with my iPad mini. I got this so that I can charge my iPhone at the job since I have a 30 pin charging cord (authentic Apple cord). This was a waste of my money. And just think, I wasn't concerned about the case on the phone, I can always remove it.

    Very useful in transition from older to new style cable

    I got this back when I first got a iPhone 5 moving on from older style, I still use the older style for my older Ipad 3g for useful at the start.

    Less used now but still glad I had it was very handy.

    Now have loads of the newer cables as they come with any new iPhones / iPads so don't find I use the older one as much.

    Doesn't integrate with 30-pin IHome clock/radio

    I upgraded my old Ipod (30-pin) to a new Ipod Touch at Christmas. I bough this adapter so I could continue playing music through my expensive Ihome clock/radio. Unfortunately the only thing this adapter does is serve as a charger for the Ipod and will only play music through my Ipod, not the Ihome unit. It won't even recognize the Ipod enough to sync the clock properly. After continuing to invest so much money in all of these Apple products because they promote integration, I continue to be let down and am forced to buy/replace more products. So much for integrating their systems.

    Another badly thought through apple products

    I got this with my new Apple iPhone and apple case all sold by the apple assistant in an apple shop only to find this is useless as you can't use it when the phone is in the apple case!! £25 down the drain. Don't buy if your phone is in a case.

    Do It YOURSELF !!!

    Whatdya mean the adapter won't fit because of your precious iphone case ?!
    Got a drill ?
    Got a drill bit just slightly larger in diameter than the thickness of the adapter ?

    Take the phone outta the case and gently grasp the empty case and ream the lightning hole from side to side until the 30 pin adapter willnestle in tight to the phone when you put it back in.

    This also works to allow most charging and sync cables to fit with case on.

    YES, You CAN do it !!!

    Apple rip-off

    One would have thought that when Apple changed IPads to a lightning connection they would have designed an adaptor that allowed the IPads to function on existing audio docking stations. THEY DIDN'T!!!. And as a result I'm left with this over-priced useless adaptor. You Apple guys are getting a bad reputation as this isn't the first time this has happened.

    ABSOLUTELY GREEDY AND SHAMEFUL - APPLE

    Just bought the lightning to 30 pin adaptor cable to play music from my iPhone 6 through my Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin. Where the do I put my phone??? The cable is too short for the phone to rest at the side of my speaker. I knew it was short but not so short as to have to find a pile of books to put immediately next to the speaker for the phone to sit on! £35 for that! Apple are now becoming too greedy for my liking! They need a good kicking up the backside by Samsung. Jeez...its not as though my speaker is that old.
    APPLE - sort yourselves out ...you've become too greedy and it will be your downfall if you don't stop it now!

    Fed Up

    Bought my first one of these in February of last year. Within a few months it had stopped working. Got a replacement under warranty at the Apple Store. Now this second one has stopped working and I find myself needing to buy a new one. This level of unreliability isn't something I expect of Apple and I'll be making the staff aware of my unhappiness when I go and buy the replacement. It may not do any good but it might make me feel a little better.

    Doesn't work after iOS 9.0.1

    BEWARE! Stopped working after upgrading to 9.0.1. Worked fine after 9.0. NOT worth the $30 we just paid. AVOID!

    Lighting to 30-pin Adaptor - Dissapointed

    I bought this adaptor, so I could use my Iphone 6 plus in my car, I have a Hyundai and there is a special charger that comes with the car, so I needed this piece so I could plug in my new phone to charge. However, it will not fit now that I put my otter box protective cover on it. Does anyone have a solution to this problem? The charging pin needs to extend out further. Also, the retail outlet store I bought this from should have been aware of this problem, as they sold me the case as well as the phone.

    Does everything I need

    I just got this adapter for my Bose Wave radio ipod dock. At first my ipod wouldn't come up on the screen for my Bose radio. It said no ipod found. As soon as I took my ipod out of its case it worked just fine. I am not sure why people gave it a bad review. If you are having problems its because you are probably trying to use it with the case still on your phone or ipod!

    Works for Bose SoundDock.

    I would remove a star for price, because this little gadget is totally overpriced but it works. Saved me from having to buy a new SoundDock (I have the old Series II). I tried buying a knockoff and should have saved my 15 bucks because that POS did not transfer audio. I don't really understand why the ratings are so low on this thing. I can see how it would not be super sturdy, but I got a stabilizing piece (called the Lightning Adapter Support from Ruark - works perfectly!) and they work in conjunction. Now I don't have to spend a bunch of money for a new sound dock! :)

    Works

    I needed an adaptor for my radio and I was very sceptical about this product because of all the bad reviews, but my iphone doesn't have a hard case, so there was no problem making it work as promises. So, the product works fine.

    But I find the price too high for what it is. Should be a $15 gadget...

    It's Great

    I purchased one of these adaptors some time again to suit my alarm/clock radio so that I can wake to my music. I have found that it does an excellent job with no faults at all. I strongly recommend this for anyone that that require a different type of adaptor for the older ipods.
