    Expensive but works well

    Purchased to use with my JVC Sound System for teaching fitness classes. I was using an aftermarket cheap adapter, but the sound quality was poor and the volume on both iPhone and JVC had to be at maximum to be loud enough for the class. Apple Live Chat assured me that with this genuine Apple adapter the sound quality and volume would both be exactly as they would be without the adapter, i.e., quality up to scratch and loud enough without having to have the volume at max. Sure enough, he was right. £29 is a high price to pay for a small adapter but in my case it was definitely worth while. Just be sure to check that it will be compatible with your sound system, and if your requirements are high quality sound and volume then buy this. If you're not bothered about volume and sound quality, get a cheap one from Amazon.

    Works Perfectly

    Have two of the adapters and one of the cable version. All work perfectly including my parrot car kit (allowing full functionality) which says it is no longer compatible with newer iPhones

    Good but not for all

    I bought this to use as a connector for my phone to docking station. I have an iphone 7plus so it's sizeable and weighty. Whilst it worked in the station and music played fine and it charged, due to the weight of the phone it did not sit right and was quite slanted and looked like it could topple over at any stage! I've now returned for the connector with a lead. So if you have the plus size - get the other Lightning adapter with the lead - much more suitable!

    Adapter on a Ruarkaudio 4i

    Moving from an older iPhone to iPhone5 has meant that I could not use the Ruarkaudio's dock. This lack became increasingly annoying therefore I looked into the options for connectivity using some sort of adapter. Obviously, I read the reviews posted here and was very worried about whether the Lightening adapter would work - it's rather expensive. I asked Ruark's advice service and was told the genuine Apple Lightening adapter worked fine, with the adapter-support available from Proporta. I can report that the four products, now mutually connectable, work in perfect harmony.

    Very useful in transition from older to new style cable

    I got this back when I first got a iPhone 5 moving on from older style, I still use the older style for my older Ipad 3g for useful at the start.

    Less used now but still glad I had it was very handy.

    Now have loads of the newer cables as they come with any new iPhones / iPads so don't find I use the older one as much.

    Another badly thought through apple products

    I got this with my new Apple iPhone and apple case all sold by the apple assistant in an apple shop only to find this is useless as you can't use it when the phone is in the apple case!! £25 down the drain. Don't buy if your phone is in a case.

    Apple rip-off

    One would have thought that when Apple changed IPads to a lightning connection they would have designed an adaptor that allowed the IPads to function on existing audio docking stations. THEY DIDN'T!!!. And as a result I'm left with this over-priced useless adaptor. You Apple guys are getting a bad reputation as this isn't the first time this has happened.

    ABSOLUTELY GREEDY AND SHAMEFUL - APPLE

    Just bought the lightning to 30 pin adaptor cable to play music from my iPhone 6 through my Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin. Where the do I put my phone??? The cable is too short for the phone to rest at the side of my speaker. I knew it was short but not so short as to have to find a pile of books to put immediately next to the speaker for the phone to sit on! £35 for that! Apple are now becoming too greedy for my liking! They need a good kicking up the backside by Samsung. Jeez...its not as though my speaker is that old.
    APPLE - sort yourselves out ...you've become too greedy and it will be your downfall if you don't stop it now!

    If you have an AUDI Music Interface this one works

    I lot of people moan about the cost of these.

    I have found the cheap Ebay fake ones only last a couple of months before failing. This one is in my car and has still not failed after 2 years of use.

    The reason it is expensive is because there in some A to D circuitry inside. I have an AUDI with the old style iPhone type lead attached to the stereo. This is the only adapt that will work with the stereo. All the fake ones do nothing. I don't know what other cars are like, but I was more than happy with the price when I found out it could be used in my car.

    The fake ones are OK for charging and using in USB stereo inputs.

    lightning adapter (the apple rip off scheme)

    Like so many other people's reviews i have recently read I too bought the iPhone 5 adapter as assumed i could use my docking station on my very expensive Hi-Fi system only to find out (no surprise) apple have ripped everyone off again. I have to give this product at least 1 star but in my opinion i wouldn't even give it that!!!

    Didnt do what I was told it would - useless

    I bought one of these very expensive adapters for my Ipad as I already had a 30pin VGA adapter. I specifically asked the guy that sold me it if it would work for video and he told me it would - well guess what - it does not.
    Unfortunately I bought it at Barcelona Airport on my way home so no chance to return it. No use to me at all!

    Not happy!

    I bought this because i wanted to listen to my music on my docking station, as the connection holes are different i needed to buy this, so i did and although it charges my ipod it doesn't play music through the speakers. I am disgusted especially because of the price of it!

    Not worth it

    This is a big waste of money. Would not work on my car stereo. When put into a docking station it will play music through but will not charge. So its cheaper to buy a 3.5mm cable to play your music

    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...

    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.

    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

    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.
