Our take on the Apple® Lightning™ to 30-pin cable

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. The cable features a female 30-pin connector that plugs into the docking port, and a Lightning connector for your Apple portable.

It's an Apple product. It works perfectly as it is designed to with my iPhone, and the USA Spec iPod interface for Chrysler.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

i liked the length of cable and quality of product. price was decent to. [ scott  Jan 01, 2017 ]
for my daughter's car [ Daniel A.  Dec 24, 2016 ]
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 ]

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 ]
