      Disappointing

      There are two big use cases this adapter does not support: 1. This adapter does not work with Apple's Smart Battery Case. You must remove the case before the There are two big use cases this adapter does not support: 1. This adapter does not work with Apple's Smart Battery Case. You must remove the case before the adapter will function properly. 2. This adapter does not pass data through to your laptop. It's no longer possible to develop iPhone applications or sync your iPhone while listening to music on your iPhone at the same time. These two use cases were previously supported when the iPhone had a 3.5 mm headphone jack. It's also worth pointing out that this adapter does not function as a headphone splitter, even though it logically makes sense to support that functionality on something that appears to be a splitter.

You know, so you can actually listen to music and work/play at the same time. Ridiculous waste of money! Infuriating.

      Beware if you utilize Apple's Smart Battery

They w This Belkin accessory has compatibility issues with the Smart Battery for iPhone 7. I own the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. I purchased 3 of the Belkin units. They work fine with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus, however, when utilized with the Smart Battery it simply does not work. To be honest, perhaps 1 out of 10 times it works. Not consistent. Belkin's support was completely useless and a waste of time.

      Stops charging

      My first one stopped working with my earphones. My second stopped charging my phone. Be prepared to buy lots of replacements if you get this.

      Huge, cumbersome design makes this already a pretty horrible “solution” to an annoying inconvenience. But I’m fine with it, since I’m too much of an Apple fanbo Huge, cumbersome design makes this already a pretty horrible “solution” to an annoying inconvenience. But I’m fine with it, since I’m too much of an Apple fanboy, lol. Either way, this garbage dongle stopped working out of nowhere not even 2 months after purchase. Skimming this product review page, I’ve noticed in sock, I’m far from the only one. Rather go buy wireless headphones instead.

      Hate it but need it

      Like so many others, I've only rated this one star because zero stars is not a possible option. I have gone through 6 of these. Yes, 6. At this point, I believe Like so many others, I've only rated this one star because zero stars is not a possible option. I have gone through 6 of these. Yes, 6. At this point, I believe I'm the crazy one for still falling for this product. Apple forces us to need this product though. What a design! To force us to buy AirPods, isn't it?
