Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Archer in customer service helped me with this through email and sending me the link for the product! [ J  Mar 22, 2017 ]
Needed to hook up lightning apple products to the old 30-pin connector that comes with this wiring kit. [ Matthew  Jan 04, 2017 ]
iSimple comes with the capability to connect to old-style Apple 30-pin. Having this adapter adds capability to use newer Apple devices. [ Stephen  Dec 01, 2016 ]
Have an iPhone 6. [ Jeff  Nov 18, 2016 ]
We have all newer IPhones. This adapter is necessary to get this to work with the phones we have. [ Jeremy  Nov 05, 2016 ]
To attach the iPod Touch to a Sirius XM Skydock [ Thomas  Sep 15, 2016 ]
The product picture showed a 30-pin ipod connector and I could not locate an aftermarket replacement wire that terminates with a lightning connector. [ Rick  Apr 19, 2016 ]
Works well with receivers with older style Apple connector. [ James  Feb 28, 2016 ]

3 questions already asked

I can't say that it works with the touch but it worked just fine with my iPhone 6 and 7. One weird thing to note is that with my iPhone 7 it makes the mute icon pop up but if you restart it, it will function normally. Hope this helps! [ Patrick  Jul 04, 2017 ]
I believe so because it works with the 6S plus that I have. Both iPods have the same charging/data port. [ ROBERT  Jul 04, 2017 ]
Yes ... [ Marcie  Jul 04, 2017 ]
yes [ DAVID  Mar 09, 2015 ]
I used it for an Ipod Nano so I cant' tell you if it works on iphone6. Sorry. [ DANIEL T  Mar 09, 2015 ]
Yes it does. Some of the bigger phone cases such as otterbox and other waterproof cases will make the connection difficult, but it works great with the phone by itself. [ BRANDON R  Mar 09, 2015 ]
Yes! The only issue you may experience would be the need to remove a cover from your phone, in order for the 30 pin adaptor to seat properly. I need to remove my incipio case when I connect to my iPhone 6. [ GLENN  Mar 09, 2015 ]
I use mine on an older Bose Sound Dock. My new iPhone 6 plays just fine with it. [ GLENN  Dec 15, 2014 ]
Yes it does [ JONATHAN  Dec 15, 2014 ]
Yes [ DWIGHT F  Dec 15, 2014 ]
