    Works Great, Way over priced

    I choose this because the 29$ option without a cord I knew would be incompatible with cases and the like so I paid $10 more to get something that would actually work. Considering that they are changing this I would have thought they'd include one with the phone.

    Enough griping, this cable works great and has even made it easier for me to talk on the phone while it is plugged into my car. The cable I had was a little too short to not have a constant tugging from the coiled cord. Now with the extra 20cm I can talk comfortably.

    Apple FAIL

    I bought this because I got the ipod 5th gen for christmas but I have an expensive and high quality clock radio that I love and still want to use from LAST christmas.

    This cord works for charging when plugged into the old 30pin-to-USB cord and to my computer.

    This cord DOES NOT work for much else, especially not my clock radio. It doesn't even acknowledge that it's plugged in!!

    I wish I could take the whole ipod back I am so angry. I will at least take the cord to the store and DEMAND my $40 back. NO WAY, Apple. Absolutely no way.

    You morons changed the plug so you morons need to create an adapter that works.

    I like apple products but this is an insult.

    If price is of no object then this is the cable for you.

    If your iPhone 5 needs a 30-pin connector adapter to connect to your old accessories, then this is the adapter for you. The other adapter that did not have the cable will not fit most of the iPhone 5 cases out there. This adapter is quite pricey but sure does the job of charging, syncing and playing music on you BOSE sound dock speaker system. However, it will not work with you old camera connection kit or 30-pin to AV cable either.

    good adapter

    a bit pricey, but work well with all my home and car accessories. It also enables me to hook it up to my iPhone 5 without modding my case. (like the other adapter requires depending on the case you purchased)

    Works perfectly

    works as expected... the only thing I don't like is how the cable is thicker than the regular USB Lightning cable... and doesn't bend as well.

    Useful for iPhone 5 Accessories

    The extension adapters most useful attribute is to allow usage with most any iPhone 5 case and my main reason for its purchase. All my accessories have recognized my iPhone 5 for use as well as charge it while docked. The lightning adapter end and cabling are manufactured thick and strong to withstand repeated use. The 30 pin side is not overly thick to allow easy fit and connection with multiple accessories. Works great with my alarm clock!!!

    The cable itself is fairly stiff and not very flexible so it won't physically support your iPhone 5 as to allow it to standup by itself without assistance. It's made just as long as most of all the other Apple (0.2m) adapters so not too excessive or bulky. While use with my car adapter has been achievable it seems to have created audio issues while transitioning from a call back to playing music. A quirk I am still looking into.

    Apple has created another award winning and selling accessory for its new lightning adapter.

    Although overpriced, it works in my car

    I bought this product so I can use it in my car. I have a Kensington 2 in 1 AUX cable with the 30 pin connector for the older generation iphones/ipods. Thankfully, this adapter worked with my current setup. Also I have a Belkin sheer iphone 5 case and the slot was just big enough for the lightning port to enter, so whew...

    Poor and overpriced

    Having recently upgraded my old iPhone and iPad to the new iPhone 5 and iPad 4th gen, I was advised that I needed this adaptor for my old apple accessories. This is very expensive for what is a simple adaptor and I feel should have been provided with the main items.
    It then gets even worse when connecting it to my old hdmi video connector I get the message that it is not supported and now find I have to buy yet another adaptor.
    Apple need to think these things through before releasing them (a bit like maps) and cease subjecting their loyal customers to buying overpriced adapters to do what their old equipment did.

    Does not work with iPhone 5s

    Tried multiple 30-pin cables and the adapter would always bring up the "cable not supported message" - this it totally bogus. Apple should not list the iPhone 5s as compatible with this adapter.

    Doesn't Work - Over Priced

    I bought this to connect my new iPhone 5, when I traded up from an iPhone 3, to my exisiting docking stations. I've tried this on two docking statings so far and the iPhone 5 with this cable hasn't worked on either station. I tried this on a Bose docking station (included with a Lifestyle system) and with an iHome clock/radio.

    Apple should include one of these with every device as we've all made investments in 30 pin cables over the years and they should maintain compability with previous versions so we don't have to go out and buy new docking stations just because Apple has a new interface.I'm losing my patience with Apple over this one. Just any way to get more money out of the consumer with no added benefit, except to Apple. The only good thing I ‘m still within the 15 day period and I can return this expensive and useless cable.

    upgraded from 3gs to 5s only to realize..

    .. that, even with the 2nd gen of the iphone 5, apple still has not provided their loyal customers with a means to use their new phones with our existing devices, such as music docs and car connectors. not only is this connector wildly overpriced, but for customers upgrading from older devices, it SHOULD, by all means, come bundled with new phones.

    the satisfaction of receiving a new phone is now mitigated by the realization that we can no longer use our phone with our existing devices without spending money on an exorbitantly priced accessory..

    this anti-consumer behavior has resulted in significantly dampening my pleasure at finally upgrading my phone... it's a small thing perhaps, but one that will stay with me long after my new phone has been broken in.. and when it comes time for my next upgrade, you can believe I will take this into account when choosing my next phone.

    Functional but WAY overpriced

    I purchased this adapter to connect my iPhone 5 with my G35. (I use an aftermarket kit to integrate with the factory system.) This cord works just fine. But at the thirty nine dollars MSRP, it is way, way overpriced. It is so overpriced that it makes me mad and makes me not want to buy Apple products in the future. The last time a company made me this mad was 8 years ago when Sony had their rootkit fiasco, and I haven't bought a single product from them since. I'm not saying I will boycott Apple, but I am thinking about it. I also seriously considered not buying the cord, but I paid 7x that to buy the aftermarket system and have it installed, and without this cord it is worthless.

    I expected the Lightning connector end to be identical to the end available on the Lightning-to-USB cable Apple provides with new iPads and iPhones. Instead, the Lightning connector end is thicker, which means it won't fit with my phone's case. Why aren't these two connector ends identical?

    Very disappointed

    Was a reliable product and worked as advertised with all of my 30 pin connectors. Since installing IOS 7, the adapter will only work for audio, and not charging. Regardless of its performance, I feel ripped off paying $50 for an adapter.

    Does not work with iPhone 5

    Bought the adapter from the Apple Store in Hamburg but my iPhone 5 complains "This accessory is not supported by this device."
    Following the other reviews here, I will take it back to the store and ask for a replacement or return it, if no replacement works, which is really annoying.
    I have a lot of Apple products, and this adapter is the most disappointing one I ever had.

    Plugged it in to multiple devices that are supposed to be supported including a iPhone 5, 5s and a 5th gen iPod Touch. I get the same "Not Compatible with this device" message every time. Disappointing junk. Too bad I can't give 0 stars.

    Complete Garbage

    So, this thing shows up in the mail today in the same box as my 5S and I plug it in and get the message that this accessory is not compatible. That message comes up even with nothing plugged in to the dock. How does that make sense? I thought this cord was made for this phone. Im pretty sure that I bought this adapter because it was suggested at checkout. You better fix this Apple. Your reviews are looking bad for this one.
