    A++

    This adapter is perfect. I have a "regular" Apple dock that is connected to my stereo system that wirelessly sends sound to speakers all over the house. I would plug one of my several iPods filled with music into the dock as one of the several sound sources (in addition to CDs, cassettes, videotape, reel-to-reel tape, vinyl, etc.) and have music everywhere. I also have the full line-up of SiriusXM radio (hundreds of channels) which I had gotten for the car, but when you have it, you can also get it on your computer or smartphone via WiFi and therefore I would have all those channels in the house. Unfortunately, my old iPhone 4S would only pick up the Wifi in my home office, but not out in the living room where the stereo system is. However, my new iPhone SE picks WiFi up all over my house (and even outside on the patio). With this Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter, which fits in the regular Apple dock no problem, I can now plug my iPhone SE into it and now have Satellite Radio all over the house, and even while music is playing, the iPhone is being charged. So to me, the Lightening to 30-pin Adapter is A++, a total winner for me.

    Terrible. Don't get fooled.

    This is a terrible adapter. Just because it's on apple's website doesn't mean its good. It lasted a year. You're better off buying a 3rd party adapter for much cheaper and get the same result. It lasts the same amount of time. TRUST ME. It doesn't last, doesn't connect properly, get error messages. No different then a 3rd party adapter.

    Works Great but big flaw

    I bought this product to dock my IPhone into my car stereo (which has a 30-pin connector). It has worked great. The only problem is that it has a major design flaw - it will not work with most phone cases because the base of the adapter is the 30-pin size. After wearing out three phone cases by taking them on and off twice a day I have finally given up on this product. Great product but could have been designed much better.

    Expensive but works well

    Purchased to use with my JVC Sound System for teaching fitness classes. I was using an aftermarket cheap adapter, but the sound quality was poor and the volume on both iPhone and JVC had to be at maximum to be loud enough for the class. Apple Live Chat assured me that with this genuine Apple adapter the sound quality and volume would both be exactly as they would be without the adapter, i.e., quality up to scratch and loud enough without having to have the volume at max. Sure enough, he was right. £29 is a high price to pay for a small adapter but in my case it was definitely worth while. Just be sure to check that it will be compatible with your sound system, and if your requirements are high quality sound and volume then buy this. If you're not bothered about volume and sound quality, get a cheap one from Amazon.

    works

    I purchased this to play my Nano 7 iPod and charge it in my older apple dock that has great sound and it does just what I hoped it would but the price is a little high.

    Only a ~2 YEAR~ shelf life? Apple, plz check on any pin-durability issues

    This wouldn't be too bad if this thing was like $10 - $15. But for over $30 bucks with tax it should at least last 4-5 years. I use it with my wired car-to-phone adapter in order to listen to app music, YT, etc. (there's no comparison between wireless audio and wired audio, wired wins hands-down). I keep having to buy a new one of these every 2 years. I'm always careful with it and never leave it out in the sun or anything so I don't know what's going on. From now on I guess I'll have to take it out of the car just to be sure it's not from residual heat. Apple, please check on any durability issues with the pins on both sides.

    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

    Works Great!

    I have a generation 6 iPod Touch which this works great for! It does what it's supposed to! However, there is a slight design flaw, the lightening bit wont work if you have any sort of case on your iPod/iPhone. It needs to be flush with the bottom of the device, so don't purchase this if you have an Otter-box or anything you don't plan on removing. I take away 1 star for that reason. I personally have an easily removable case, so it's no big deal for me.

    30 pin to lightening adapter

    Should have read the reviews BEFORE purchasing. It does not work with when using a Lifeproof case. On the upside, returning it so far was easy.

    Failure with 2 devices

    Did not work with the slim case on my iPod touch or my Otterbox Strada case on my iPhone. It seems like the lightening cord would work if you removed the case.

    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.

    get the cord instead

    If you have a case this will be useless, You'd think apple would know better, very poor product and expensive to boot. It's going back.

    Works GREAT for me!

    I bought an adapter hoping I could use my 30 pin iRig Midi with my iPad Mini. I plugged it in and it works with no problem. I am even able to charge my iPad while in use. I am extremely satisfied.

    Doesn't work with Apple's own cases

    Bought to use with brand new iPhone SE in genuine Apple leather iPhone SE case.

    Lightning Adapter design requires it be flush against the phone for the full width of the adapter, and therefore it can't be inserted deep enough when using the case, which is cut to fit JUST the lightning plug.

    Not for use with most cases

    If you have a case that offers good protection for your device then this will not work.

    Worked great until my cousin stole it

    I had this for a couple of months, I used it so I could put my iPad mini on to an old 30-pin speaker. It worked perfectly until my cousin stole it and now he uses it, even though he has an android phone! What an absolute plonker! It was expensive too, I can't justify the price.

    Racket

    I use my phone to display video on TV ( through apples proprietary and expensive 30 pin adapter cord ). Of course when I upgraded my phone to a 6S Plus, it has the new Lightning plug. So I bought an expensive 30 pin to Lightning adapter ( $30 ? Really Apple, Apple, $30 ??? ), only to find out the adapter only supports audio, not video. So do I have to buy a new cable to play video on TV every time you decide to "improve" the product by changing the dimensions of the cord that plugs into the phone. What a racket !

    Doesn't work with cell phone case!

    I can't believe that Apple, known for great design, would design an adapter that's too short to work when your phone is in a case (which most are). Back to the store it goes -- I wish I had read all of the poor reviews before I bought this product!

    Works for Nano & Bose Portable SoundDock

    I got this to continue using my Bose Portable SoundDock (2011) with a new iPod Nano (7th G). It charges the iPod, plays all audio and the dock's remote still works with this adapter to change volume, fwd/ rewind, change playlists, etc. Was the best solution in comparison to Bluetooth adapters which can't charge the iPod. I even tried an AUX cable which reduced volume to half plus the remote didn't work.
