    Ok with iOS 5, not with iOS 6.0.1

    I upgraded my iPhone 4S to iOS6 even before thinking about purchasing this adapter. Later I decided to purchase it, and did so just as iOS 6.0.1 was being released. To my surprise, this adapter still does not work with my iPhone 4S and iOS 6.0.1. The adapter does work with my 1st gen iPad and even my wife's iPhone 4S that still has iOS 5.1.1. I have a great deal of content on my phone that I would like to see on my large flat screen TV, however due to iOS 6 I'm not able to do so. To be honest I am quite disappointed and somewhat frustrated.

    Hdmi output sound no video

    Sound but no video is a communication issue between tv and your device's app. As in. A new tv(last 2 years tops) should work perfectly for any app. I had this problem. 3 yr old LCD. 1 app WATCH ESPN is flawless. Safari partially worked. Other apps had sound and no picture. Even home videos. A 1 yr old QUATTRON tv mirrors every app EXCEPT nfl network which states it will not allow hdmi out. All this said IOs 6 UPDATE DOES NOT WORK AT ALL WITH HDMI OUT.. OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!! Fix it now.....oh. please

    Does not work with IOS 6

    I was enjoying this product but since updating my IPad 2 to IOS6 from IOS 5 it no longer works. An on screen message says ' this device is unsupported'. Apple please fix this, it cost a lot of money to purchase and is now useless.

    Work great on iPad-must restart.

    I was skeptical after reading negative reviews on this product using IOS 6, but knew there had to be a simple answer. You MUST restart an iPad on IOS6 before this adapter will work. After a restart, it works flawlessly, putting the home screen and everything else I tried up on the plasma TV, and porting sound to the TV's speakers. Videos fill the screen and look great.
    It is not Apple's style to ignore a problem such as this, and they didn't. It took about a minute to figure it out and restart my iPad 2. Shame on you people who just plugged it it and had a tantrum because it didn't work instantly, just returned it and wrote a disgruntled review.
    Must have never plugged in a different PC keyboard and had to restart for the computer to recognize it. Apple products spoil us with world-class ease of use!
    Thanks for a great product. My only suggestion is to spell it out on the instructions that the restart needs to happen. Less returns and bad reviews, more happy customers.

    Works well on original iPad for video-out only

    ...because that is all it supports on original iPad, along with photo slideshows. I think Keynote supports it too but I never used it.

    This is an awesome thing for the traveler because most hotel TVs now have HDMI ports. Unfortunately many hotels disable the ability to switch the TV's input source, hoping you'll spend $10 or so for a blurry lo-def old movie. If you can disconnect everything from the back of the TV aside from HDMI obviously, then it'll usually work. I also have the AV adapter for older sets with no HDMI, or where the HDMI is disabled; sometimes you can get a signal through the AV input. Some hotels like Aloft and some Westins have a box with all kinds of inputs but these are pretty hit-or-miss; at the Westin Atlanta airport, the HDMI did not work but the AV inputs did.

    I was going to buy a refurb iPad 3, but now after reading reports that iOS 6 breaks video output I think I'll stick with the old one, which can't even run iOS 6, and video is about the only thing I use the iPad for anyway. If/when this problem is fixed then I'll replace it with an iPad 3, not the 4 or mini, no need to re-purchase two new video-out adapters or 30pin->Lightning adapters; just what I need, one more white expensive little thing to lose or forget in a hotel room... already spent enough on new power supplies.

    Works great!

    I'm not sure why others are having so many problems. I hooked by 3rd generation Ipad to my LG tv using the HDMI cable and it worked perfectly. The screen on my ipad transferred to the entire big screen on the tv when I watched a movie. You can pull up anything. I say it's a great product. Easy to set up. Just another great apple product.

    Before dogging the product, make sure it's not something else if you have a problem.

    Expensive and poor design

    Adapter will not work on the iPhone five if you have any type of cover on it. Poor engineering design by Apple.

    Do not upgrade to IOS 6

    It was working until I upgraded to IOS 6, very uphappy about that. Apple should provide patch update on iPad to make this adapter works!

  • 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Was brilliant, now 0 starts

    This was a wonderful addition to my Apple collection.
    Until I upgraded my iPad (post iPad 2 version) to iOS 6.

    Now 'this device is unsupported'.

    1 star because you can;t post 0

    Should have expected it.

    I purchased a camera adapted for my iPod (they call it the classic now) but when the iPod touch came out, it didn;t work either. Built in obsolescence.....love it,

    IOS 6 Incompatible

    Is it incompetence or arrogance from Apple which allows them to release IOS 6, and then suddenly I find that having upgraded, the cable I bought previously and cost $45 (and probably cost Apple $3 to produce, but that's another story) now says that it is incompatible? I used to rate the device highly.
    Should there not at least be a warning on the front screen of both my Ipad and my Iphone 4S at the time it was prompting me to do an upgrade to the effect that "Some of your Devices will not be compatible if you proceed with this upgrade"
    I personally have invested heavily in setting up to do presentations from my Ipad, only to find that I may have to redesign the course presentation mode.
    My challenge to Apple is FIX IT - and soon. This is not good enough. I don't care if it's a system upgrade that is produced, or a replacement cable they make that you can take your existing one in and swap for nothing. The point is that this represents abysmal treatment of customers, and if it remains unresolved, it will be a true indication in my mind that Apple simply doesn't care. I await a response.

    It does what I want it to.

    It just works. Plock it into your i-devise and it is at your TV.

    Not for IOS 6

    About to buy one of these for new iPad but saw some posts so checked with Apple to be told that this device DOES NOT WORK WITH IOS6.

    I think this should be said on this page by Apple rather than reviewers!

    Works absolutely perfect. Excellent for iPad 3 with iOS6

    I have an iPad 64GB Wifi + 3g with iOS6. I have been watch and download lots of videos through TED, Funshion and Sohu and needed a way to play the videos directly off TV. I took a lot time leading all kinds of reviews and was at first put off by the fact that the adapter did not work with iOS6. I was also concerned if the video would work with apps like TED which play the video in app instead through Apple's video player. After much consideration, I chose to order from Apple (even though ebay was offering alternative for cheaper). I had to be sure and the fact that I can get a refund if it did not work. I also make sure I went to an electronic store to get a proper HDMI cable and not off the web knock off sub cable.

    IT WORKS! WORKS PERFECTLY if I might add. Everything mirrors perfect. The in-app videos works. I tested with Noteshelf, SugarSync, Paper, TED, Funshion, Sohu, Trello, Unstuck, and even games like Warriors2 and etc. They all mirrored perfectly. Ther was a slight delay moving from notes to notes in notshelf but noting more. Videos that play off iPad Video player would play on TV but not on iPad. I had one off sync issue where I wait 3 seconds but the video did not show. I close that, relaunch another video and go back and it is fine. So far, I have had it for 2 days and love it!

    Why did't it work

    Got this with my new iPad 3 with IOS 6 upgrade. Tried it for the first time tonight, worked for about 10 seconds and then the TV screen went black. Hope there is a fix soon.

    First impression

    I just received this and attached my ipad3(with ios6) to my tv. It worked great! And when I started Netflix, it went to full screen and looked and sounded great. Worth the money.

    Doesn't work with iOS 6

    I previously used my iPad2 w/ iOS 5 to watch movies and youtube on my bedroom TV. Now with the upgrade to iOS6 the TV displays "HDMI mode is not supported".


    This whole iOS6 debarkle has me very seriously considering getting a Samsung tablet instead of the next iPad4.

    No longer works after iOS6

    Bought this a few weeks before the ios6 update only to find it no longer works with the update. No fix or explanation from Apple. Very disappointed and annoyed.
