      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.

      �� This adapter is kinda useless.

      For $40 dollars and being bought from Apple, I expect this adapter to work with iTunes and Xcode.

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.

      Purchased 3 Times, all three didn’t last for more than 3 months, I’m surprised how apple would allow such products to market on their website. Why don’t Apple m Purchased 3 Times, all three didn’t last for more than 3 months, I’m surprised how apple would allow such products to market on their website. Why don’t Apple make it one of them(2 in 1 adapter).

      0 stars for me. A waste of money

Then they pl Got this thinking apple would know what they are doing with their products. Was already annoyed when they got rid of the headphone jack altogether. Then they play this game with loyal customers. Charging almost £35 for a piece of junk that doesn’t even work. Attempted to charge and play music at the same time in my car and all I got was a high pitch squeak out of it. Sort yourselfs out apple. This is getting embarrassing. Switching to Samsung, where they actually take care of their customers. Not go after the wallet every time
