    Works great and saved me a couple hundred dollars

    I bought one of these adaptors for my Kenwood stereo in my car. I had already ordered this one from apple when I got my iPhone 5s but stopped by the place I had the deck installed a couple years ago. They were nice enough to loan me a similar adaptor that did not work with my new phone. When I got this adaptor a couple days later I decided to give it a shot since I notice the one I was loaned was not made by apple, It worked! There was no problem for my older deck to connect to my phone and I tested numerous time to make sure I was giving you hope for you older iPod capable devices.

    There are a lot of poor reviews for this adaptor but I think that most of those have more to do with the customer choosing the correct adaptor for their situation. Many of the reviews I saw should have chosen the Lightning to 30‑pin Adapter cable instead of this one.

    Doesn't fit with iPhone 5S Case

    I'm confused. Apple makes a lightening adapter for the 5S, and Apple makes a case for the 5S. But you can't use them both at the same time. This could not make less sense. I generally love Apple products, but this is one little ball very heavily dropped.

    AVOID

    This is a terribly conceived and designed product as it will not fit an Iphone 5S or 5 if you have a cover (which is 100% of Iphone owners). It's so bad, in fact, that none of the Apple designed Iphone covers will work with this Apple adapter. Get the chord instead. I would highly recommend Apple pull this useless product from the market immediately and fire the designer.

    Does what it should but let down by poor design

    Works fine with my sony docks and the Y cable in the car for data and charging.

    Would love to be able to give 5 stars.

    It's a shame that this has not been designed to work with the official Apple 5s case, I have a few docks in my house and a Y cable in each car it gets tedious having to remove the case each time I wish to attach to my phone. I have seen 3rd party adapters that look like they have thought about this, but unfortunetly not MFi certified.

    For
    It works

    Against
    Price
    Design - have to remove even the official apple case to use.

    Would give 2 more stars if it would fit without removing the case, and another star if it was more reasonably priced, so there is potential for 5 stars.

    Why sell Apple branded cases which mean the pins don't connect???!

    Apple get so much right, but this product is an absolute shower!!

    Audio, charging and syncing do not work AND having launched a new case for iPhone 5s the connector doesn't even fit!!! What's all that about?!

    Seriously Apple, must try harder on this. I hope someone is reading these comments and acts quick sharp

    Worthless with Apple case

    If you have the new 5S case, this is worthless. You have to use the skinny USB cable that comes with the phone or buy the more expensive 30-pin to lightning cable. All your 30-pin sleek speaker systems/recharging devices will not work with this adapter unless you rip off the case every time you use it or get the cable adapter to hang off it. Why couldn't they taper the lightning end to the same size that is on the USB cable for this adapter??

    Dissapointed

    It will not play music on any of my IPOD docking devices. Just charges it. I really can't justify buying new alarm clocks and music cubes. Yep really disappointed and hope Apple comes up with a solution.

    Great Device if it Fits Your Needs

    I bought 2 of these when they first came out. At first I was a little disappointed with them thinking they would not fit through my cases/covers but, as it turns out, they fit just fine. Perhaps a little snug for some cases but they still worked great. What I love most about these devices is that I can switch between old and new technology with the same cable, especially if I'm on the road and don't want to carry a bunch of cables. I'm buying 2 more now because I have more places where I can use them. Just make sure it will fit your needs and will work with your setup before buying.

    From good to bad

    I purchased this product so I could charge and play my music from my 5th generation ipod on my ihome. It worked perfectly for about 7 months, but now it doesn't. For some reason, the adapter only lets me charge my ipod. Some of you may be saying that maybe theres something wrong with my ihome. Well there isn't. I tried the adapter on 3 ihomes and 1 bose docking station. The result left me unsatisfied. Whats the point of having a brand spanking new ipod if you can't even use it for it's main purpose- listening to music at a high volume. I am very disappointed with the degrading of this product. I never even abused it. It was always left attached to my ihome. I hope apple with fix this product.

    Works well, but annoyingly expensive

    Great adapter, works with my iPhone case although my wife had to get a different case for her iPhone 5 to get the adapter to work for her. My only gripe is that $30 is way too much for this tiny thing. Ideally I would want to have a whole bunch of them, but at this price I only have a couple, which have a tendency to get misplaced.

    Almost returned as defective

    I read the reviews. Some said it would not fit the phone if a cover on it. I tried with a thin bottom of the line Belkin. The adapter would not lock in. Removed the cover and it worked.i will just need to remove when using it. Only using it for car charger at this time.

    Perfect for my car charger

    This works great with my case. I needed one for my car charger and this is perfect plus I can take it with me if I need to. A little pricey at $30 but it seems like that is the standard with apple. I can only imagine what we will have to buy for the 6 cause all the other stuff is not compatible. I do love my Mac though and when I have to use a pc it's torture!

    Does not charge the iPod in a Scion XB

    I got this so I could play music from my iPhone in my Scion, as well as charge the iphone while on the road.

    This adapter plays the music OK, but doesn't charge the phone. Returning and will just buy a normal lightning car charger.

    More Information would be helpful

    I just got a new iPad. I already owned several 30 pin adaptors from my previous iPad. I thought that purchasing a Lightning to 30 pin adaptor would allow me to use the two video cables that I already owned. However, the adaptor does not support video! It would have been nice if Apple had put that information on the box. So much of what Apple does is great and I love Apple products. I just wish that they would find a way to help us avoid buying new accessories every time we upgrade!

    Gets the job done, but beware...

    ...It's not well built. I use this every day with the iWavit which is a small IR/RF transmitter that attaches to a dock connector. I do not think they have plans to make a lightning connector version, because it works just fine with this adapter. However, I wish they would because I'm currently on my 3rd adapter and I just ordered 2 more. This way at least I save on shipping and have backups ready for when this one inevitably breaks. After daily use for several months the lightning connecter protrusion begins to feel slightly loose, which is when you know it's almost dead. Sometimes fiddling with it a little can fix it temporarily, but eventually the thing will become completely useless. I haven't tested my broken ones for charging (no need since I have the included USB to lightning cable to charge my iPhone 5 with) but in terms of data transmission to my accessory it does not last long.

    Take off case

    Didn't charge for me on my old iHome until I took off the case, now it works like a charm. Wish it would work with the case on...
