    Works Perfectly

    Have two of the adapters and one of the cable version. All work perfectly including my parrot car kit (allowing full functionality) which says it is no longer compatible with newer iPhones

    Good but not for all

    I bought this to use as a connector for my phone to docking station. I have an iphone 7plus so it's sizeable and weighty. Whilst it worked in the station and music played fine and it charged, due to the weight of the phone it did not sit right and was quite slanted and looked like it could topple over at any stage! I've now returned for the connector with a lead. So if you have the plus size - get the other Lightning adapter with the lead - much more suitable!

    Adapter on a Ruarkaudio 4i

    Moving from an older iPhone to iPhone5 has meant that I could not use the Ruarkaudio's dock. This lack became increasingly annoying therefore I looked into the options for connectivity using some sort of adapter. Obviously, I read the reviews posted here and was very worried about whether the Lightening adapter would work - it's rather expensive. I asked Ruark's advice service and was told the genuine Apple Lightening adapter worked fine, with the adapter-support available from Proporta. I can report that the four products, now mutually connectable, work in perfect harmony.

    Very useful in transition from older to new style cable

    I got this back when I first got a iPhone 5 moving on from older style, I still use the older style for my older Ipad 3g for useful at the start.

    Less used now but still glad I had it was very handy.

    Now have loads of the newer cables as they come with any new iPhones / iPads so don't find I use the older one as much.

    Another badly thought through apple products

    I got this with my new Apple iPhone and apple case all sold by the apple assistant in an apple shop only to find this is useless as you can't use it when the phone is in the apple case!! £25 down the drain. Don't buy if your phone is in a case.

    Apple rip-off

    One would have thought that when Apple changed IPads to a lightning connection they would have designed an adaptor that allowed the IPads to function on existing audio docking stations. THEY DIDN'T!!!. And as a result I'm left with this over-priced useless adaptor. You Apple guys are getting a bad reputation as this isn't the first time this has happened.

    ABSOLUTELY GREEDY AND SHAMEFUL - APPLE

    Just bought the lightning to 30 pin adaptor cable to play music from my iPhone 6 through my Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin. Where the do I put my phone??? The cable is too short for the phone to rest at the side of my speaker. I knew it was short but not so short as to have to find a pile of books to put immediately next to the speaker for the phone to sit on! £35 for that! Apple are now becoming too greedy for my liking! They need a good kicking up the backside by Samsung. Jeez...its not as though my speaker is that old.
    APPLE - sort yourselves out ...you've become too greedy and it will be your downfall if you don't stop it now!

    Fed Up

    Bought my first one of these in February of last year. Within a few months it had stopped working. Got a replacement under warranty at the Apple Store. Now this second one has stopped working and I find myself needing to buy a new one. This level of unreliability isn't something I expect of Apple and I'll be making the staff aware of my unhappiness when I go and buy the replacement. It may not do any good but it might make me feel a little better.

    If you have an AUDI Music Interface this one works

    I lot of people moan about the cost of these.

    I have found the cheap Ebay fake ones only last a couple of months before failing. This one is in my car and has still not failed after 2 years of use.

    The reason it is expensive is because there in some A to D circuitry inside. I have an AUDI with the old style iPhone type lead attached to the stereo. This is the only adapt that will work with the stereo. All the fake ones do nothing. I don't know what other cars are like, but I was more than happy with the price when I found out it could be used in my car.

    The fake ones are OK for charging and using in USB stereo inputs.

    Not thought through

    This adaptor does not fit when Apples own case is on the iPad air. How dumb is that? Surely someone could have checked that out, and at this price. Very annoying. Also does not work with my old iPad to VGA adaptor. Grrrrr

    Does not fit in iPhone 5s with case on

    Awful design, apple. What were you thinking? Who uses their phone without a case? I know extending the length of the socket would make it insecure and liable to snap, so howabout a breakout cable on the next version?

    What were they thinking?

    Frustrating because it cannot charge a device that has a protective case around it. Who does not have a protective case these days?

    Does Not Work With Component Cable

    This will not let you use your component cable, it does not support video. Even if you speak to a sales advisor and they tell you it does like I did, it doesn't, so don't get caught. all in all total waste of £25

    Not useful with iPhone 5S

    I bought this so I could connect my iPhone with my 3rd generation iPad. Well new iPhone 5S I wanted the nice (expensive) apple case, so once you put the case on the phone the adapter doesn't fit without taking the phone out of the case.

    I returned the item.

    What a con ! and really poor design

    I bought into Apple because it was functionally great and very cool. The new port connection destroys this ! Why change a winning format ?

    I recently invested in all the docking stations around the house including Crestron docks..............and now in order to upgrade my Apple kit I have to buy this ???? !
    And let's not forget the need for different charging connections for the iPad mini, iPhone 4 & 5 and iPad1 & 2. I can't just connect to recharge around the house like I used to.

    And don't get me started on the bespoke connection in my car that does not allow space for the adaptor.

    As for the new connection, who thought this was a smart idea to have something so flimsy ? It clearly won't sustainably support the phone !

    And should I in future invest in new systems with docking formats if I can't trust Apple not to change it in future? Seems like the sales of sound docks are also going to get hit. Instead, why not just buy a double jack cable and connect by Aux.

    Terrible idea and frankly I'm cynical that it is just a money spinner for Apple. My trust in the firm is destroyed and my appreciation of Apple design badly dented.

    Help !

    After reading some of the reviews, about this product. I bought two, (very cheaply from ebay!) however when I plugged in iphone 5 nothing happened, ebay sent another, incase it was faulty, but it still didn't work. So I have just purchased a new speaker docking station which is for ipads, iphones and ipods, but still no music comes from the docking station ? (trying all 3 adapters) I'm wondering why it works for some and not others ? Have resorted to the standard 3.5mm jack cable, but would be nice to use the docking station as is intended. Pls Help !!

    lightning adapter (the apple rip off scheme)

    Like so many other people's reviews i have recently read I too bought the iPhone 5 adapter as assumed i could use my docking station on my very expensive Hi-Fi system only to find out (no surprise) apple have ripped everyone off again. I have to give this product at least 1 star but in my opinion i wouldn't even give it that!!!

    Didnt do what I was told it would - useless

    I bought one of these very expensive adapters for my Ipad as I already had a 30pin VGA adapter. I specifically asked the guy that sold me it if it would work for video and he told me it would - well guess what - it does not.
    Unfortunately I bought it at Barcelona Airport on my way home so no chance to return it. No use to me at all!
