Works perfectly!

Works like a charm in my Bose SoundDock. As others have noted, you'll likely need to remove your iPhone case to connect this, but worth it. And of course, the Crutchfield shopping experience is always terrific.

Exactly what I needed

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Needed adapter for car audio system. Crutchfield customer service was excellent in helping this technically challenged, frazzled mother find something in a hurry before a road trip so my new iPhone 6 would connect to my car's audio system. This is exactly what I needed, the only draw back is I do have to slip off my phone case as the adapter doesn't fit through the case opening. But I'm so happy to be able to access iTunes again when I'm traveling! I agree with other reviewer I do wish it came in black or gray to match phone, but it is easy to spot in my console.

Pros: Easy fix and I can access iTunes in my car again on my new iPhone 6

Cons: It doesn't fit though my phone case and it doesn't match the phone, very minor cons.

Lightning to 30 pin

Written by: Ted S. from Cross Junction, Va on October 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The only thing that could make tis adaptor better is a short wire between the two plugs. The current configuration does not allow me to plug the Lightning connector without removing the Otterbox from my IPad Air and my Lifeproof off of the my IPhone.

Pros: It is convenient to not be forced to carry two cords if you have older Apple products.

Cons: Needs a short cord between the two plugs.

Lightning to 30 Pin Adapter

Written by: BT from NJ on June 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

does what it's supposed to do, but a stupid design, typical of Apple. It doesn't fit the iPod squarely, it's off center, so now it sits in my sound dock off centered, and looks stupid. Also, again, typical of Apple, it's white, which looks stupid, again, with a black iPod. But it does work, so I'll give them that. Why so expensive?

Pros: It works.

Cons: Fits silly, off center, and looks dumb.

Useful, not Exciting

Written by: MarkD from Charlottesville MA on June 2, 2014

This is a useful little device that no one should have needed. I had purchased a good quality charger and player for my previous cell phone. When the new cell phone arrived, with its now 30-pin plug, the player became obsolete because the pin design had been changed, hence the new phone couldn't use the old charging system. Enter the Apple 30-pin adapter. It works all right, does what it's supposed to do, with only one annoying design defect. When you are through charging the phone or listening to whatever and attempt to disengage the phone from the 30-pin adapter, the adapter invariably comes away with the phone, instead of staying securely mounted on the base. Every time you pick it up, you have to pull it off the phone and re-position it back on the base. A little thing, but very annoying when it happens for the hundredth time, and earning the product only 3 stars.



Good idea

Does exactly what it's supposed to do. I have it attached to a Yamaha YDS-12 iPod/iPhone dock and have my 7th generation iPod on it and it's recognized just fine.

Pros: It works.

Cons: Pricey, but that's Apple for ya.

You really can't go wrong with apple products. They are built with high simple quality that works flawlessly and effectively. Tight fit that stays connected even while your messing around with your phone. Highly recommend over the aftermarket products.

The Adapter does what it says it will do.

Pros: .

Cons: It does not plug into a Iphone 5 that has a case on it. I have many friends that own Iphone 5s and they all have cases on them so this adaptor is useless. I ended up buying the the corded version of this from Crutchfield and it works great. I wish your adviser would have talked to me about this before i bought it.

I ordered the 30 pin adapter for my daughter for christmas. She has the new Ipod 5th generation. The adpater allows her to use the Ipod on any radio now. The adapter fits perfect on any device that we own. The quality is great. It is worth the money.

Pros: The fit is great on any device. The sound quality is nice!

Cons: None
