      Disappointing

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 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.

      Works fine until it doesn't

      Mine worked fine for 9 months, then one day stopped passing audio to the ear buds, although it continues charging. I'm trying to be fair and not penalize the pr Mine worked fine for 9 months, then one day stopped passing audio to the ear buds, although it continues charging. I'm trying to be fair and not penalize the product because I'm angry at the need for the product. If I wasn't such a nice, fair guy, it would get one star. But to be fair it worked as intended for 9 months which is a lot longer than some others have experienced. Occasionally there would be a charging problem that was always solved by removing and re-inserting the plug. But this new audio problem is terminal. On repeated attempts to connect, every once and a while I would get a second or two of audio before it quit. The ear buds work fine plugged directly in the phone. But then I can't charge the phone, as Apple in their infinite wisdom intends that I not do.

      WHY was the headset jack removed from the iPHONE ?!?!?!?!

      This device is first and foremost a PHONE for making and RECEIVING phone CALLS !!! Every other function is SECONDARY to phone calls! No one currently makes a r This device is first and foremost a PHONE for making and RECEIVING phone CALLS !!! Every other function is SECONDARY to phone calls! No one currently makes a reliable splitter that allows the phone to charge WHILE using the 3.5mm earbuds for phone calls - this greatly hampers business use-age! iPhone 6 is the last model w/ a headset jack. I will not upgrade to a different model until the headset jack is again separate from the charging port. Please Apple, please return our cell phones to functional standards :/
