It is excessively overpriced for what it is and performs poorly. This is an absolute insult from apple.

      Beware if you want to stream on demand!

      I bought this adapter with the intention of connecting my ipad to my tv and streaming apps such as Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer and 4od. Be aware that none of these ap I bought this adapter with the intention of connecting my ipad to my tv and streaming apps such as Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer and 4od. Be aware that none of these applications will work when connected via HDMI to a display. You will receive a notification that states the app does not support. Possibly ignorance on my part, but to me, this was a big plus point of buying the adapter in the first place. I contacted 4od and received the below response when I asked why there was no support: "Unfortunately the reason Airplay no longer works is that we don't have the rights to broadcast all our shows using Airplay, so this feature is not enabled." Hope this helps.

      What's the point?

      This gave me issues right out of the box for my iPad Pro 9.7.

"this view is not supported" is the message I get when I try to catch up on my favorites shows on abc go app. I had the older version of this for my iPad 3 and it worked great with everything. Not impress with the function nor the price. I will de retuning this for sure. But, now what are we supposed to do? Is there any option out there that works to just duplicate exactly what's on your screen to a TV?? I would give 0 stars if I could.

      Buy the back alley Chinese version.

      Right out of the box this adapter would not do anything more than charge my phone. Which is great if you need 2.5 extra inches of reach on your charger. It didn Right out of the box this adapter would not do anything more than charge my phone. Which is great if you need 2.5 extra inches of reach on your charger. It didn't work for the first few days until plugging it into another iPhone and then an iPad. After that it worked for a few weeks, before malfunctioning again. That time, I had done every combination of unplug and plug back in for about 2 hours before it worked again. And then it lasted for a while. And now tonight, while trying to set up a Sunday night movie, it once again malfunctioned. But tonight I gave in after what my lady friend claims was 20 minutes of "playing" with it. I'm very disappointed in this products reliability and am offended that Apple would so carelessly produce and sell it. Buy this if you like to A. Sometimes get what you pay for B. Gamble or C. Enjoy being let down. Don't buy this if A. You have anger management problems B. Believe price buys you quality C. Think Apple respects you or us.

      Lousy

      Bought this as a companion to my new iPad Pro. It is defective out of the box , image is not 1080p at all. There is noise and pixelation dirty quality. The sign Bought this as a companion to my new iPad Pro. It is defective out of the box , image is not 1080p at all. There is noise and pixelation dirty quality. The signal totally freezes. While using with charger it gets too hot. Don't waste your money on this. AirPlay is much better to use if your intention is to get your iPhone or iPad screen on a larger display. I'm just disappointed that an expensive accessory in 2016 isn't even capable of 1080p. The old dock connector was better
