      Outrageously expensive, worked OK, but now cuts out if you move it

      Very lazy design, £40 is way too expensive for this. Why did Apple not mould the Lightning connector into the other end of the block so as to give a strong and Very lazy design, £40 is way too expensive for this. Why did Apple not mould the Lightning connector into the other end of the block so as to give a strong and rigid design. Most HDMI cables are heavy so inevitably the short stiff piece of cable that connects to the Lightning plug will be under bending loads however careful you are, and hence they fail early. Mine has lasted about 6 months and now cuts out if you so much as touch it - as have many other peoples if you read all the negative reviews. It actually worked very well before it started to break which is all the more frustrating. Shame on you Apple, selling expensive, poorly designed and badly made rubbish as accessories for your otherwise excellent kit. And there is no alternative source available as you have a monopoly. You should and can be so much better than this.

      Rubbish

      I find it annoying that we are being forced to buy an item from a sole supplier when obviously other manufacturers can do it better (Belkin springs to mind). I I find it annoying that we are being forced to buy an item from a sole supplier when obviously other manufacturers can do it better (Belkin springs to mind). I used the adapter once and it failed on the second occasion (and I am not the only person to have this problem). So Apple, please give the licence to someone who know how to produce a reliable product and you stick to making things that you know about. (why is it not possible to give a zero star rating as that is a better reflection of the quality of this adapter?).

      Expensive failure

      I bought one of these in January and while it worked well initially, after 8 months it just stopped working. If I had paid £5 for one from China I might not be I bought one of these in January and while it worked well initially, after 8 months it just stopped working. If I had paid £5 for one from China I might not be surprised, but at over £30 for a genuine Apple product, this is just not good enough. I am now trying to get a refund/replacement but have little faith that another one will do much better, particularly having read so many recent reviews showing these failing after only hours of use. I used to think Apple produced a high quality product but my experience with this leaves me very much in doubt and I would be reluctant to spend any significant sum on any of their products if this is the level of quality I can expect.

      Expensive but works great!

      I bought this cable without reading the reviews in here. It was cutting off when I moved the phone like other users and while searching the issue online, I read I bought this cable without reading the reviews in here. It was cutting off when I moved the phone like other users and while searching the issue online, I read all the reviews and a bit disappointed. I wanted to give another chance and replaced the cable in Apple Store and it had issues again. So I decided to return it, went to Apple Store again, explained the issue and the guy said “can I take a look at your phone?” I gave my phone to him and he pulled out lots of dust from the lightning port! He told me it will be OK now and guess what, he was right! Nothing is wrong with the cable, it’s perfect, it was all about the dust because I carry my phone in my pocket all the time. Yes a little bit pricey but it’s a genuine Apple product, what were you expecting? If you have issues with this cable, clean up your iPhone's/iPad's lightning port please.

      Faultless product

      I was a little concerned by the negative reviews, however I can confirm that as of today this product functions without fault on my iPad Pro 12.9” (iOS 11.4.1), I was a little concerned by the negative reviews, however I can confirm that as of today this product functions without fault on my iPad Pro 12.9” (iOS 11.4.1), and my iPhone X (iOS 12). The products immediately jumps to life, and gives you a blue bar for a few seconds to remind you that the screen is being mirrored on an external display. I was also pleased to find that when you play videos, or show photos from the Photos app, the media fills the entire display of the external display which is great for watching videos from apps such as Plex. Other apps like Netflix / On demand TV apps don’t play due to licensing reasons.
