    Bose sounddock

    Do not get this if you're using iphone 5 to any Bose Sounddock. I too was told this by BOSE. Get the CABLE! As people note, a case is a issue, it sits to high on sounddock and backwards. Bad idea Apple. GET THE MORE EXPENSIVE CORD!

    Compact but major design flaw

    I like how small it is compared to carrying a long cable around but I am very disappointed that it is incompatible with my Speck Candyshell (or nearly any protective case that covers the bottom of your iPhone 5). The lightning portion is just too short to work with my case. I think I'm going to see about exchanging for the cable version which at least has a smaller lightning portion

    No video support!
    In the presentation of the iPhone 5, no one mentioned that the adapter was not supporting video. So i bought it and found out that it can not support video.

    not work with Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter

    It's supposed to be work with most Apple Genuine product.
    No it's doesn't.
    I connect to Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter which I bought for iPhone 4S,"Apple does not support this product" shown on iPhone 5 Screen and can't connect to TV via HDMI Cable.
    When I went to apple store and chat with their employees, they suggest me to buy new iPhone5 Lightning Digital AV Adapter for $59.
    It's only work when you charge with old 30-pin cable to iPhone 5.
    Why apple did not clearly indicate their adapter will not work on all of their own product?

    Works well but overpriced!

    This adapter should've came with the iphone 5. It worked well with my USA SPEC PA15-ACUxl ipod integration kit for my Acura TL

    3 stars for costing $30!

    Only works with device facing backwards. Doesn't allow charging.

    My stepmother and I both have the same problem with this. She has an iPhone 4s and I have a 7th-generation iPod nano. With two different adapters and two different Bose docking systems, we each can only reliably get this to work with our devices facing backwards! Occasionally, if we're lucky, it will work for a while with the device facing forward. It's weird, because I thought the great thing about the lightning adapter was that it was symmetrical. For the price, I'd hoped this would work right.

    Further, the Bose docking station will not charge our devices using this adapter. Geez, Apple! Whatever happened to "it just works"?

    Seems big

    The adapter worked fine with my docking station, it is just very big and makes the phone stick out of the dock quite a bit. I don't know why it couldn't be made any smaller.

    Like what was mentioned in the earlier reviews here, it won't work with any type of Iphone case. Also the worst part is, it has compatibility issues with my JBL Onbeat Xtreme and Harman Kardon Go+Play II. So now, the only way for me to play them is through Aux cable or bluetooth.... I wasted money here......

    iPhone 5 connector

    I bought the Lighting to 30 pin Adapter from my Apple Store after buying 2 other connectors via Amazon. Although both of the Amazon supplied connectors support battery charging neither would enable me to connect to to the 30 pin connector and play audio into the car system. The Apple connector worked first time.

    So although the other connectors were individually cheaper I paid more in total than the one Apple connector. My guess is that the Apple connector contains the necessary circuitry whereas the cheaper versions do not. Whatever the reason I wish that I had bought the Apple connector first. It does what it says it does.

    Pricey, but it works!

    Previously attempted to purchase an aftermarket substitute for the lightning adapter for the 30-pin plug for my trucks radio. Those products weren't recognized by the radio or my iPhone 5, but did provide charging and data transfer into a computer.

    After being unsuccessful with the cheaper option I decided to try the Apple branded lightning to 30-pin adapter. Without much expectation, it worked well beyond my expectation! The radio and iPhone instantly recognized the device providing a charge to my iPhone. An audio signal was provided from my iPhone to the radio and the radio controls worked for pausing songs, changing tracks, as well as rewinding and fast-forwarding (just like before the adapter using my previous iPhone 3G and 4.

    The adapter itself seems expensive, but it WORKS! I do not rest my iPhone right side up resting on the adapter for fear of the adapter breaking in the lightning port.

    Too over priced.

    Okay so, I was hoping that these would be around the $20 mark, when I saw that it was $50, I almost had a fit, these things are no less than $10 to make and charging people an extra $40 is just a rip off, I mean, c'mon apple, you need to lower the price of these products, all it is, is an adapter, not an iPhone. I mean, you's are almost a trillion dollar company, and I can see where all your money is coming from. People who desperately need these things have to fork out all this money and all they are getting is a little adapter, I mean, they aren't that exciting.

    Nice product!

    I purchased this to mainly intergrate with my car stereo. It does what it's supposed to, and stays firmly in place. Its a high quality product. I have an Otter Box case, and like many the adapter did not fit correctly. It wasn't really a big deal. I used my Dremel and enlarged the opening just a bit. Now the adapter fits perfectly. I would have given it five stars, but I think it's a bit over priced.

    It Works!

    Bought a cheaper one on the web and didn't work at all (got my money back). Bought this at an Apple Store and works perfectly in my 2010 BMW. Have not tried it on other products as this is the only one I needed it for.

    Over priced

    Way over priced and doesn't fit the iphone with most phone covers. Completely annoying that you have to pay extra for this connecter, it should be packed in with the device.

    Get these at Big W

    I was annoyed to find that my iPhone 5 was not compatible with my docking station I play my music from.
    I picked one of the adapters up at Big W for $38 and had tried every which way to get it to play! Still didn't work so after a while got the ***** and repositioned it at different angles until it eventually worked! It's very annoying though, to have to spend more money when you really shouldn't have to. What the point of the change? Everything will now need to be connected to this adapter to work! Silly, silly, silly!

    Works as described

    I bought this to use in my car. I have a Kenwood KVT-696 deck with an ipod 30 pin connection and with this adapter my iphone 5 works flawlessly with this deck.

    Thin design! Don't have to remove my iphone 5 cover that I bought from Snapfish. Works on both my Philips alarm clock, AND my BOSE speaker system. Very pleased. Just pricey!

    Pick up your game apple

    This adapter has compatibility issues with 75% of our speaker docks round the house. That is to say it works with only one of our 4 speaker docks. Have not yet tried the 2 alpine head units in our 2 vehicles, won't hold my breath.

    This adapter was for use with a latest gen itouch.

    Come on apple if your going to make an adapter, make it compatible with all devices it plugs in to, not just 25% of them!!! If someone develops an adapter that makes all your 30 pin connections work, that will SELL! Come on you electronics wizards out there, get cracking, your market awaits you.
