    720p only

    Doesn't do a full 1080p HD. Just 720. Not a good cable when mirroring a video or watching a movie from your iphone to your TV.

    Very "iffy"

    As with MANY other reviewers - I have had problems. Plug it in - it works great - yay! Next day - doesn't work for weeks - boo. Try again - it works - yay! Unreliable - Can't say it is an iOS8 problem as I have latest update 2015/08/27 and it worked 2 days ago. And not an iPhone vs iPad issue as have same good and bad luck with both. It really seems to be the Lightning adaptor connection. Something there does not always align or gets worn out. Today - not working. Boo. Apple needs to address this proactively because it scares me (and others) off buying Apple TV or other accessories- rich or poor no thinking person wants to waste money.

    Apple stands behind this cra**y cable. :-)

    I see the many many reviews where this cable just failed. Mine did too. So I drove to the Apple store in a pretty bad mood not expecting a good outcome based on prior experiences with the Apple Store in LG. To my surprise, Apple employees, and the manager, asked "when did you buy it?". I said "11 months ago but it failed last month". They exchanged it on the spot for a new cable. Now my connection works again! OK, Apple employees, you made me a believer again. Thanks very much!

    It works BUT....

    Works fine but what gives with Showtime? I pay for this service and they will not let it stream through my new expensive Apple adapter. Not very good public relations on the part of Showtime. Works better with iPhone than my iPad since the iPhone fills the whole screen.

    Excellent Adaptor

    I use this adaptor a lot when I go to hotels ad want to watch films on my phone on the hotel TV. The only problem I had was one that I suspect some of the other reviewers have had....fluff in the lightning connector of my iPhone. This gives the wobbly connector problem. I could not sort this so I took it to an Apple shop and they cleaned it free of charge.

    Bought one of these to work with a Pioneer App Radio which mirrors onto a touch screen on my car. The wire needs to be perfectly staight to work other wise poor connection. One failed so bought another and same issue. Simply not up to the task and £80 down. Apple sort it out please - Like that's going to happen

    Works fine

    It works with my iPad and iPhone. Full screen when watch movies but black side space when showing home screen, I guess that's because my TV's resolution setting is different and who would just watch home screen when connected to TV...To me, the product is perfect.

    Doesn't charge ipad

    The picture display/quality on our 65" Panasonic was flawless for me
    HOWEVER, the female lighting port adjacent to the HDMI port will only charge our iphone....unfortunately, whould not charge our ipad mini's.
    I purchased this for the kids to watch their content from the mini's.....so based on a high $50 price tag the adapter gets a low review from me.

    Beware - doesn't work on IPad Air 2 with ISO 8.3 and 8.4!! Don't waste ££££

    I bought this to connect my iPad Air 2 to my TV. At first it worked great and then following an IOS software update it stopped working. It shows the connector is attached with the blue bar appearing, but doesn't display on the TV anymore. It still works on my iPhone 5c (also a poor quality product) so clearly there is a problem with the software update and I'm very disappointed the latest (8.4) has not remedied the compatibility. I've not updated the iPhone software and assume if I did this expensive connector would be totally redundant.

    Apple you should change the compatibility statement until you fix the problem, instead of allowing your customers to waste £40!!!!

    Best Product !!!!

    Guys...really I was concerned after reading all reviews. May bcz of that I checked everything with most of the things av adapter, hdmi cable and displays and videos too. And finally found that it's superb i.e av adapter and found that most of the times its corrupt video as the only problem. Kindly check all before buying hdmi, display and may content. Checked with Displays like Sony, Sharp, Samsung, Dell, Philips....HDMI like MX, Apple, Cliptec....Content like animated presentations, pics, 1080p videos, 4k YouTube streaming ........all was working as per combination I choose... Best with CLIPtec HDMI, SAMSUNG TV any good video content.....kindly put reviews carefully as they are highly influential... :)

    I've had this for a couple years and it always worked GREAT with all my iPads and phones, UNTIL they were upgraded to IOS 8. Audio passes, but NO VIDEO. I just discovered this while on vacation as the last time I used it was with IOS 7. I'm going to the Apple Store as soon as I get home to get a refund!!

    Not compatible with LifeProof Case

    This adapter is not compatible with the LifeProof Case for iphone 6. The lightning connector collar is too fat to fit in the opening on the case. DO NOT BUY if you have a LifeProof case on you iphone 6.

    Does the job. solid, reliable.

    As my hardware has evolved I've used Apple adapters for iOS devices and Macs, touring the country giving presentations at all sorts of venues and with all sorts of local systems. I've never had an issue with Apple's adapters, including both my 30-pin HDMI and Lightning HDMI adapters.

    This is a very reliable and solid adapter. For those who complain about price, this is not simply an analog pass-through that reroutes a bunch of wires. It contains digital circuitry that does the conversion within the adapter itself. Apple charges a little more than they should but not that much.

    As for a reliable connection, the only time I've _ever_ heard about issues connecting to a TV have _always_ been due to the HDMI cable, not the adapter. There is a trend for HDMI cable manufacturers to use cheap components and dress them up with highly decorated and beefy looking shells complete with epoxy lens foil logos and colored like a Nike on acid, then charge less than a top quality product, so that the customer ends up with a piece of junk.

    Regarding 1080 resolution - if your device cannot output 1080, then this adapter cannot conjure up a higher resolution. If your device outputs 1080, this adapter can handle it.

    So disappointed :(

    I had high hopes for this! We used it a total of three times, and now it has stopped working. It worked perfectly the first three times we used it, and I thoguht it was great. I bought it from Best Buy for $59.99, and sadly didn't keep the receipt. I'm totally bummed!

    HDMI review from iPhone 5s

    I love Apple iPhones! The HDMI Lightning is not working properly ... For example: The Netflix is not working correctly which I really wanted and needed it! Apple please fix this issue as soon as you can. I am returning the HDMI lightning connection!!! It is a waste of $50! I expect this to be way stronger! I will buy them product, if it's fixed! I will be watching these memos! To see if it is fixed.

    Only worked for 1 hour!

    So I got an IPad mini for Christmas this past year.... Let me start off by saying I'm an Android user and have no interest in having an Apple however I love my Mini and the one thing I wanted to do with this was let my children watch their movies on the "Big Screen". Now if you can imagine having two children (ages 3 and 4) so excited to finally get what they have been asking for, then so QUICKLY let down. Lets just say there was a lot of crying and screaming!! It wouldn't bother me so much if it weren't for: 1. I had to go out of my way to get one of these, local stores were sold out and online took to long. 2. HOW CAN YOU CHARGE $49 FOR AN ADAPTER?!? I mean really??!! I'm totally returning this thing and will find another way to let my children watch their movies.

    Works well most of the time and then there is a fix

    I have three of these on three different TVs (all Samsung) and the dongle works well. I did have problems with the HDMI cables and they are very sensitive and tend to break easily. I do have the occasional issue of not connecting, but a restart of the IPad or iPhone always solves that issue. Works as advertised and will display a high definition picture if used with a good source. For those with problems, try a reboot. Satisfied customer here.
