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.

Apple® Lightning™ to 30-pin adapter

Written By DickB, Richfield, Mn. on Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.
