      Doesn't Work!

      Purchased this so I could use my older Bose sound docks with my newer IPod nano. It charges the iPod but the audio does not work. I get an error message that Purchased this so I could use my older Bose sound docks with my newer IPod nano. It charges the iPod but the audio does not work. I get an error message that states "unsupported, accessory is not supported." Prior to purchasing this iPod I was told this adapter would be all I need to continue to use my sounddocks. But, no, that's not the case. I can't upgrade my sound docks so they can be "supported" by Apple. I'm a retired school teacher and can't afford that. Why can't you keep this simple and easy. I'm so disappointed.

      Works for Nano & Bose Portable SoundDock

It charges the iPod, plays all audio and the dock's remote still works with this adapter to change volume, fwd/ rewind, change playlists, etc. Was the best solution in comparison to Bluetooth adapters which can't charge the iPod. I even tried an AUX cable which reduced volume to half plus the remote didn't work.

      Won't work with a case on your phone

      I too bought these in the hopes of being able to use them with the Sony Clock radios that both my wife and I have.

Found out the only way they'd work is if the case is removed from the iPhone (5SE for my wife and 6S for me). I'd really like to see Apple redesign this with a longer Lightning connector and perhaps two or three spacers of various thicknesses. That way, the length of the Lightning connector could be customized by the user by the appropriate selection of spacers and would allow this to be used with any number of cases or without a case entirely.

      A++

I have a "regular" Apple dock that is connected to my stereo system that wirelessly sends sound to speakers all over the house. I would plug one of my several iPods filled with music into the dock as one of the several sound sources (in addition to CDs, cassettes, videotape, reel-to-reel tape, vinyl, etc.) and have music everywhere. I also have the full line-up of SiriusXM radio (hundreds of channels) which I had gotten for the car, but when you have it, you can also get it on your computer or smartphone via WiFi and therefore I would have all those channels in the house. Unfortunately, my old iPhone 4S would only pick up the Wifi in my home office, but not out in the living room where the stereo system is. However, my new iPhone SE picks WiFi up all over my house (and even outside on the patio). With this Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter, which fits in the regular Apple dock no problem, I can now plug my iPhone SE into it and now have Satellite Radio all over the house, and even while music is playing, the iPhone is being charged. So to me, the Lightening to 30-pin Adapter is A++, a total winner for me.

      Terrible. Don't get fooled.

      This is a terrible adapter. Just because it's on apple's website doesn't mean its good. It lasted a year. You're better off buying a 3rd party adapter for much This is a terrible adapter. Just because it's on apple's website doesn't mean its good. It lasted a year. You're better off buying a 3rd party adapter for much cheaper and get the same result. It lasts the same amount of time. TRUST ME. It doesn't last, doesn't connect properly, get error messages. No different then a 3rd party adapter.
