Have an iPhone® 5 or other Apple portable that uses the new Lightning connector? With this handy adapter you can still use your new device with your current gear with built-in docks.

Average Customer Review(s):
Pros: Like all Apple products I have used, works as advertised, i.e. Perfect.
It's an Apple product. It works perfectly as it is designed to with my iPhone, and the USA Spec iPod interface for Chrysler.
this adapter works fine
Pros: apple product
Cons: price is high. could be longer in length
This 30 pin adapter works well. Its an Apple product. What more can I say.
Pros: Works well, like you would expect with Apple products.
Cons: Priced high, as I've come to expect from Apple products.
This product is recommended & works as described. I can now use my iphone 6s with my old 30 pin cable in my car.
Pros: Does what it supposed to do.
Cons: The cable is very short. It says 9" but thats total length including connectors so usable cable length is about 7". If your existing 30 pin is short too or in your glove box don't expect to be able to place your phone in a mount without rearranging things. Price is kinda high.
I upgraded my iPhone which went from a 30 pin connector to a lightning connector. I listened to music from the phone in my car. After a lot of research, it was obvious that there are many lightning to 30 pin adapters available. Most of these will charge your phone but will not pass the audio signal through. Apple sells a compact lightning to 30 pin adapter with the two connected with no wire between. The problem is the lightning connector can't make full contact if the phone has a case, which mine does. This adapter is between 8 to 9 inches long, does charge and pass audio through, and is working great for me.
Works very well
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Way too expensive
From another retailer, I purchased a less expensive, look-alike item that did not work. I returned it and purchased an original Apple product from Crutchfield now everything works fine.
Pros: This adapter will plug into an iPhone that has a cover. The non-wired 30 Pin to Flash adapter won't reach into the phone if a protective cover is in place.
Perfect! We really liked our new Mini Convertible Bluetooth connectivity. Sadly, the connection was a 30-pin and not our iPod Nano's Lightening connector. This fixed that problem perfectly. Thanks, Crutchfield for having stock and getting it to us pretty quickly!
Pros: Apple cable
Need an adapter to work from the old apple cord in my truck to the new one on the Apple iPhone 6. This was perfect, especially for a long trip. Played music perfectly and I could use the controls from my steering wheel too. It charges your device when connected too!!!
Pros: Charges, plays music through your system
obviously easy to install and works perfect
Pros: simple and easy to install
Cons: a little pricy but what isn't with the apple name on it
As usual, the Crutchfield team was knowledgable in helping find what I needed. Recommended this and...perfect.
Pros: Easy to use and works great.
Cons: Pricey and cord could be a little bit longer.
Needed to buy this to convert 30 pin Apple connection in 2014 Mercedes. Works as promised. Pricey for what it is, but have heard performance issues with generic versions sold online.
Pros: Length; no compatibility issues
Great product. It works well. I had it shipped to my sons' colleges and all went well.
Pros: worked well
Excellent product. Works very well for audio and charging. It completely met my expectations. I highly recommend it.
Perfecto para conectar tu iPhone a productos designados para iPod. Un articulo que cada dueño de iPhone 5 debe tener siempre accesible pues facilita su conexión. Ejemplo: Compré un USA Spec iPod® Interface for BMW para conectar mi iPhone 5 a mi Mini Cooper 2005, y el Apple® LightningT to 30-pin cable me permitió conectarlos perfectamente sin ningún tipo de problema. Perfect for connecting your IPhone to products that are designated for an IPod. This is a product that every IPhone 5 owner should have near since it facilitates its connection. For example: I bought a USA Spec IPod interface for BMW to connect my IPhone 5 to my 2005 Mini Cooper and the Apple Lightning to 30 Pin cable allowed me to connect the two flawlessly without any problem.
Pros: Conexión conectar/usar para rápida instalación. Excelente construcción. Connection/usage for a quick installation, excellent construction
Cons: Ninguno. None.Crutchfield response on 9/3/2013 Translation provided by Crutchfield's Spanish Sales & Support team. Visit our new Spanish-language site at www.crutchfieldenespanol.com:
Works great, purchased from a different retailer to sync my iPhone5 to my Pioneer AVH-P4400BH. Hopefully Pioneer will come out with a iPhone5 Lightning cable adapter for their radios.
Pros: Allows for the use of an iPhone5 with previous iPod cables
Cons: Does not support video.

Ordering through Apple or trying to purchase at local Apple Store was too difficult. I'm a loyal Crutchfield customer, [ Harold Dec 25, 2017 ]

Needed to adapt car receiver accessory to new iPhone. [ Michael Nov 27, 2016 ]
All of my Apple devices have lightening connectors. The cable looks like it will be less bulky than the adapter that would have to plug in right at the device. [ Jeremy Oct 01, 2016 ]
I needed a means to connect my iPhone 5's Lightning Connector to my 2010 Mercedes M-Class' iPod pin connector to play songs through the car's stereo. According to the description and the positive reviews, this adapter harness should work. Thanks, Rob [ Robert Sep 19, 2016 ]
There are many Apple adapters with different capabilities. Some support audio and some don't, etc. I can always trust Crutchfield to have exactly what I need. [ Harold Apr 06, 2016 ]
Similar less expensive (china imitation) product would not work. I purchased this product to allow streaming of Pandora music from my iPhone to my car. My phones protective cover prevented me from inserting the "non-corded" version of the Lightening to 30 Pin adapter into my phone (without taking off the protective cover). [ Daryl Feb 27, 2016 ]
Want to 30 pin speakers with my new iPhone. [ Lorna Jan 30, 2016 ]
The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Kenny Jul 19, 2017 ] Staff
Yes it does [ CHRISTOPHER R May 26, 2015 ]
yes [ Robert May 26, 2015 ]
It does for us. We have it between an iPhone 5 and an older Kenwood receiver. [ gregg May 25, 2015 ]
Shawn, Yes it does both. I bought one to play from my iPhone to an old Bose SoundDock. Plays and charges at the same time. [ PAUL A May 25, 2015 ]
