I have never had an apple product with this terrible of quality. For $50 should definitely last longer especially not used much and always put up when not in use. Would not recommend wasting your money.

      Poor Video Quality and No Audio Out of Headphone Jack

      Instead of outputting native HDMI, this little device seems to take the output from the phone, compress it, and pass along an HDMI signal. The result is the vid Instead of outputting native HDMI, this little device seems to take the output from the phone, compress it, and pass along an HDMI signal. The result is the video quality is far below good HD quality. Expect all kinds of artifacts and other issues including lower than expected HD resolution. This is not a device that can replace a good streaming alternative, which is too bad considering Apple's devices are more than powerful enough for that purpose. For those of us hoping to use our phones or iPads to connect in business settings to display content, be aware that audio is only transmitted through the lightening port when this is plugged in, which gives no audio out through the headphone jack. That means that if you are plugging this into a projector's HDMI input, you are likely going to lose any sound that goes along with your presentation (or anything else) as most quality projectors do not have speakers. This is a big oversight in my opinion as lots of devices keep the analog audio out of a headphone jack or the like live while also transmitting sound over HDMI. Similarly, sound is not also sent via bluetooth when this is plugged in, so that's not an alternative either. I have both the bluetooth and headphone jack options open on my laptop, which has an HDMI out. So much for replacing a good old laptop.

      Stop working after ios 12 update

      The cable is not the problem. It's the ios 12. The cable does not work with my iphone X with ios 12. It still works fine with my wife's iphone X with ios 11. To The cable is not the problem. It's the ios 12. The cable does not work with my iphone X with ios 12. It still works fine with my wife's iphone X with ios 11. To be clear, it still works on regular HDTV with a hard reset of the iphone. It does not work in my 2017 Escalade with the rear entertainment system TV. If you have the same problem, do not update you phone to ios 12. I am trying to roll back my iphone X to ios 11. FYI: wireless charging in the 2017 Escalade also does not work with iphone X. Apple please, make sure you test your products on American built products also.

Disapp As of 09/28/2018: Works very well and as expected with my iPhone 6s Plus w/iOS 12. DOES NOT work (NO OUTPUT) with my new iPhone XS Max w/iOS 12. Disappointed, and now cannot use my new iPhone XS Max for critical customer presentation needs. I will update this if/when Apple fixes. In the meantime, buyer beware.

      Awful Quality

      Twisting the cable ever so slightly causes the screen to black out. I’m not even talking about being reckless with it. Just adjusting it and it goes out. Stop s Twisting the cable ever so slightly causes the screen to black out. I’m not even talking about being reckless with it. Just adjusting it and it goes out. Stop selling trash!
