    This product as me thinking about a droid or Google phone

    I dropped $40 on this item. Works on one iPhone 6. Inexplicably does not work on another iPhone 6 using same OS and settings. Sad and despicable.

    Useless

    This Lightning Digital AV Adapter became useless when I updated my iPhone 5s and iPad Air to iOS 11.2.2.
    Such a waste of money! Very disappointing.
    Apple please work on this!

    Netflix Audio Only

    I should have read the reviews here before purchasing the adapter. The primary purpose of my purchase was to be able to play Netflix videos I have downloaded while I'm travelling. It plays the audio quite well, but no video, which for most programs is quite necessary.

    Don’t waste your money

    I purchased this to stream downloaded Netflix movies and television shows to my tv. It works if I waste cellular data streaming but once I download the same show some where I have WiFi then try to convert it to my tv at home, it won’t do it! I feel like I wasted $50 plus the $15 for HDMI cable.

    You need to be careful.

    The lightning adapters are very sensitive, and 90% of the time, when one of these breaks, it's because people handle them improperly, either by jarring the connector or yanking it out by the cord. They DO work, and require no configuration. It's like any other electronic device. Treat your stuff with respect and it'll continue to function normally.

    Frustrating

    Spend my money on this. Why the HDMI cable if doesn’t work. This is not $10.00 is over $50.00 and a complete waste. Very disappointing

    Does not work with iPhone X iOS 11.2.1

    Doesn’t work with iPhone X iOS 11.2.1. Phone seems to recognize it was plugged in but movie just plays on the phone. Doesn’t give the option to mirror to HDMI.

    not sure why the low rating

    I was hesitant to buy this product based on all the bad reviews.

    Bought it to play Beasts of Balance on my iPhone SE and displayed on my 60 inch TV via HDMI.

    Have had no problems. Looks great.

    Now, it's only been a few hours. Perhaps it will crap-out. If things change, I'll post another review.

    Kindly resolve this issue

    Dear Apple,

    In the last year or so I have retired 2 Blackberry handheld, 2 HP laptops, one Microsoft Surface Tablet, and one Blackberry playbook . We transitioned over to Apple for convenience and commonality. We now have an IPhone 7, an IPhone 6s, and 2 Ipads which all worked with the adaptor. We often travel for business or up north. We paid extra for the most storage possible on our phones so we could download Netflix shows and then paid what seemed like a rather large price for the adaptor specifically for these occasions. We were very impressed with the convenience until it was no longer....It seems that a new update has made this a very unstable choice. Of the 4 Apple products only the IPhone 6s will work with the adaptor and even then it will only display a black screen and audio with Nexflix.

    I have to admit that the Surface 3 has been pulled out of retirement, which has a dedicated video port and works flawlessly for the purpose we need. I was also able to link/sync it to my Apple network somehow and has been returned to service recently.

    Please consider that certain things like the ability to transfer Netflix from an I phone to a TV are key to certain people, my hope was that I would transition over to apple completely making my life easier. My first impression with Apple is that things just work, after being in the Apple family for about a year or so, I am a little less impressed with certain aspects of the Apple lifestyle

    I never thought I would have to dust off old electronic items to make something so simple possible, and as your target demographic, I am much less inclined to only consider Apple products for future purchases.

    Thanks for listening.

    DG

    Terrible! NOT SUPPORTED IN iOS11

    Bought this to watch downloaded Netflix movies on my TV without using data (rural home, no good internet options). Worked great for a month, until I upgraded to iOS 11. Thanks for making your own product defunct, you jerks. I can’t believe they are still selling this product/haven’t updated their OS to make it work.

    Not worth the price for jumpy video

    This adapter is incapable of outputting HDMI reliably. The video is reencoded in the adapter and sent out.

    If I would have known this I wouldn't have bought it.

    Save yourself the time and do a quick Google search on the quality of the video output from this so-called official Apple adapter.

    Love this adapter

    I see that other people have had issues with this but I never have. It travels with me on every vacation or trip I go on and I use it play movies from my iPhone right out to the resort TV on rainy days or late at night.

    I plug this in with an HDMI cable and it just works and duplicates my phone screen to the TV. for me it is a simple solution to watch what I want.

    Please fix Netflix mirroring

    I love download movies on Netflix to watch them at the chalet. Since last iOS update Netflix is playing sound but no picture. I bought a too expensive 70$ genuine Apple adapter just for that, so please fix this issue as soon as possible.

    Worthless Piece of Junk

    Works as expected

    Have used this for years to connect an iPad to a hotel TV while traveling to watch movies. Works great.

    I do think the price should come down a little though.

    Useless junk of a product!

    Until recently I have been using a $15 third party HDMI adapter that has worked (including charging function) a treat. Charging function has stopped first and few iOS revision later HDMI output has also stopped working - around mid 2017. Turns out it has functioned as intended until Apple decided to block all non MFi products, despite quality of lighting connector on par with genuine Apple cables. Fast forward 6 months later, bought a new Apple AV adapter as a replacement - after all, what option did i have...? Well, what a waste of $70 this was! Netflix offline mode works in audio mode only (black screen), in online mode (over WiFi and fast connection) you also get continuous slight staggering of video - very annoying - presumably due to some bizarre compression technology used in their adapter. In both Netflix modes, I never had such issues with a cheap and cheerful $15 adapter. Problems don't stop here - yep, there is another issue with this rubbish product. The lightning cable is very finicky, and yes both my phone socket and cable connector are still in excellent condition. Need to lie-down this product flat (including HDMI cable) and try not touching it as not to disturb it in any way. Thanks Apple, and I can't believe that this product has been in existence for so long. Lesson learned here, pays to read reviews before you part with your money!
