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.

      Rendered useless

      Now a lump of useless plastic after being bricked by iOS12. This is unacceptable Apple. With growing competition, can you really afford to treat loyal us Now a lump of useless plastic after being bricked by iOS12. This is unacceptable Apple. With growing competition, can you really afford to treat loyal users with such contempt? Microsoft Surface beckons next upgrade cycle.

      Cordcutter here, minor issues

      I cut the cord with a certain cable company (rhymes with Bombast), and thought this was the cat's PJs to use with my (rhymes with horizon) unlimited plan. It I cut the cord with a certain cable company (rhymes with Bombast), and thought this was the cat's PJs to use with my (rhymes with horizon) unlimited plan. It was — until it simply quit working in my iPhone 6 and my wife's iPhone 7. I thought the dongle might be defective, and initiated a return/repair with Apple. Further digging online (not via Apple) revealed a 12.1 issue/bug. A great Apple employee confirmed it. (After four calls to other employees/departments.) Updated to 12.1.3, and voila! It works again. $50 dongle versus $150 for cable? Priceless.

      useless garbage

I picked it up from an official Apple Store and it was advertised as an easy to use accessory. After a few minutes of use the screen very often freezes on both TVs in my home. I switched to a premium quality HDMI cable without any success. No luck with Ipad and Iphone. The frozen pic comes on both TVs no matter wath the source is. Switched HDMI ports many times. Restarted TVs and Ipad and Iphone, no luck. Something is clearly wrong. Waste of money. I am on the latest IOS. Not to mention the lack of full screen support in many apps (NHL.TV for example). Overpriced and useless.
