    Dont Buy

    Although this product works well if your iphone does not have a case, it is useless if you want to use it with your iphone case on (which means virtually everyine will not be able to use it). I can't understand why Apple made this useless product without thinking of that. You risk your iphone getting damaged whenever you try to use this because you have to take it out of the case.

    An alternative product is the one with the cable. That one is priced way high but at least it works. Not sure if there are third party alternatives out there. Very disappointed with Apple. Can I return this product? i wonder..

    Bad Product for any iPhone 5 Cases

    Only 1% of iPhone 5 Cases can use this adapter. It's very bad product. It's very expensive.

    If you want to use with any iPhone 5 Cases. You must buy Lightning to 30-pin cable type. It's very very expensive than adapter.

    Works Great

    I bought this thinking that it would be chunky and not be able to work when I have a case on my iPhone. But it fits my phone perfectly with the case on. The people that are complaining about it must have very chunky cases if they adapter is not working. It was definitely worth buying as now I can use my iPhone on all of my old docks.

    poor design for music output

    Doesnt work in my 2012 Mercedes, my Yamaha DAB, my Onkyo docking port or my Ruark DAB - so that is every device I have - £25 for a power converter and I purchased 2 before I found out...

    Should be shipped with new products to maintain compatibility

    Most unhappy that if Apple change connector on their products and do not ship free adapter so their existing customers that have Apple accessories are prevented from using them!!

    Connected to my A5

    Was given new Ipod touch 5th Generation for Christmas. I wanted to get all my music into one place and listen in my car.

    Have an Audi A5 2010 model and unfortunately I couldnt connect with the audi supplied leads.
    Purchased this 30 pin to lighting and it works really well. All the tracks and information are visible on the central in car screen and I can control the ipod from the dashboard.

    Well worth the money.

    Many bones to pick...

    First off, the pin is too short to work with devices with cases and to me it's kind of obvious that a huge majority of Apple device owners have cases on their devices. But what bothers me more is the price. I just simply want to be able to use my dock like I was able to before you went and changed the connection. But no, I have to fork out $35 for a tiny adapter that from what I've read from some reviews doesn't work on all docking stations and have to continue to remove the cover from my device every time I wish to dock it. It would have been a lot more simple to have the lightning connector come in the box with the device you have purchased.

    This should be bundled with the iPhone 5

    With the cost of the iPhone 5 being what it is, this adapter should come bundled with it, simple as that. There have been so many accessories developed to fit the old 30-pin connector over the years and most of us have at least one. For Apple to charge $35 for this thing is an insult to it's customers, who have already shown their loyalty by buying Apple products in the past that use the old connector type! How about showing some loyalty yourselves Apple. $35? Really? Give us a break!

    Lightning to 30-pin Adapter

    I got this from the Apple store on Oxford as I previously had an iPod and I wanted to be able to use my iPhone 5 to connect using my iTrip, my Bose system and to charge it with my existing car charger - and it does all of the above!!!! Most thrilled I can still use my Bose docking station with my iPhone 5 and the staff at the store were really helpful - it's secure, doesn't wobble and I am very happy. I am also able to use it with the phone still in its protective case

    Does the Job.

    Works perfectly and is the only way to connect to the old ipod docks.

    So versatile

    Very cool product.
    Bought one of these a while ago and I use it everywhere. Instead of lugging your charger with you to friends houses, you can use this along with their iPhone 4 charger to charge if need be.

    Connects up to the existing car setup, which originally was for the iPhone 4. Works perfectly. I have been reading the reviews on the cases and I have a slim belkin case and have had no dramas connecting it up to that with the case being in the way.

    Charges BUT NOTHING ELSE!!!

    This adapter is totally useless. I brought it because apple told me that it would support audio and allow me to continue using my previous docking station, however, I found that when connecting my ipod 5th generation to my ipig docking station the only thing it would do was charge my ipod. Therefore, audio is not compatible and the adapter is totally useless. Also, the connector is very weak and flimsy, i did not trust it enough take my hand from behind my ipod for fear of it falling off. Pointless product!

    Does not work with B&W Zeppelin mini

    I bought this, so I could continue using my Zeppelin mini iPhone dock. It does not however work like it says. It charges the iPhone, but the audio doesn't go through the adaptor. It just plays through the iPhone speakers. Really a shame, since my pretty expensive dock is under 1 year old.

    works perfectly, stop complaining

    This product works exactly as it says it will. It allows for 30pin connections to be used with a lightning iDevice.

    Please stop complaining that it doesn't do the following - It's not meant to!

    No, it doesn't support video, you need new adaptors for that

    It is not designed to be plugging into docks, it's designed for cables to be plugged into it

    It's not designed to be used with a case on your phone, but a case is YOUR choice, not Apple's, so is designed perfectly to be used with your iphone.
    (admittedly Apple could have got it better for use with Nano's)

    Lightning connector is reversible, so can not be back to front, try turning your phone round if you have this problem of not being able to see your screen with it plugged in!

    Ripoff

    No video support!
    In the presentation of the iPhone 5, no one mentioned that the adapter was not supporting video. So i bought it and found out that it can not support video.

    not work with Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter

    It's supposed to be work with most Apple Genuine product.
    No it's doesn't.
    I connect to Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter which I bought for iPhone 4S,"Apple does not support this product" shown on iPhone 5 Screen and can't connect to TV via HDMI Cable.
    When I went to apple store and chat with their employees, they suggest me to buy new iPhone5 Lightning Digital AV Adapter for $59.
    It's only work when you charge with old 30-pin cable to iPhone 5.
    Why apple did not clearly indicate their adapter will not work on all of their own product?

    Too over priced.

    Okay so, I was hoping that these would be around the $20 mark, when I saw that it was $50, I almost had a fit, these things are no less than $10 to make and charging people an extra $40 is just a rip off, I mean, c'mon apple, you need to lower the price of these products, all it is, is an adapter, not an iPhone. I mean, you's are almost a trillion dollar company, and I can see where all your money is coming from. People who desperately need these things have to fork out all this money and all they are getting is a little adapter, I mean, they aren't that exciting.

    Over priced

    Way over priced and doesn't fit the iphone with most phone covers. Completely annoying that you have to pay extra for this connecter, it should be packed in with the device.
