Apple Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter and 1st generation connector

Will an Apple Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter allow an iPhone 5 to charge from a 1st generation connector? When I plug my old iPhone 3s directly into my 2006 Lexus LS430 connector, the iPod function will work but not charge. This is apparently because 1st gen connectors didn't have a USB charge capability. I'm hoping the adapter will correct that.

As I suggested above ,the first iPod had a firewire connection ,as did the next ( I have one)
I also had the first Bose sounddock which was designed for the first iPod and required the afore mentioned adapter to work with my iPhone 3G
As I said to charge the iPhone 3G you need the  adapter to change the 30 pin wiring from having firewire to just USB as everything is today
Look at
as an example ,this is the type of adapter you require to change the car live connection to support the iPhone 3G
If you then also want to use an iPhone 5 you will IN ADDITION require the lightning to 30 pin adapter

  • APPLE LIGHTNING TO 30-PIN ADAPTER MD824ZM/A

    I have just bought a new iPod Touch 5th Gen.
    Will the "APPLE LIGHTNING TO 30-PIN ADAPTER MD824ZM/A" let me connect the iPod to my surround sound, which has a 30 pin dock, and allow the music to play through the system?
    Have been doing some searching and have seen varying answers.  The APPLE LIGHTNING TO 30-PIN ADAPTER MD824ZM/A cable is not cheap so I don't want to be paying out for something that will not do the job.
    Thanks

    Thanks - hadn't considered the surround controls controlling the iPod so handy to know

  • HT1665 I have the lightning to 30 pin adapter and it doesn't work.

    I bought a lightning to 30-pin adapter and the thing won't  work. I connect is very loose.

    So what do you think writing to a technical support forum would accomplish?  Do you really need someone here to tell you to return it?

  • Can you connect the Lightning to 30-pin adapter and Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (0.2 m) to iPod nano (7th generation) with third-party accessories?

    Can you connect the Lightning to 30-pin adapter and Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (0.2 m) to iPod nano (7th generation) with third-party accessories?

    Lightning to 30-pin adapter and Lightning to 30-pin adapter (0.2m) do not work if connected together by other third-party accessories.

  • No longer able to use non-apple lightning to 30 pin adapter cable with IOS 8

    Do any of you use an Apple iDevice with a digital transport docking station to get your music from your device to your speakers using an external DAC?
    I have an Onkyo ND-S1 which was great when using my iPhone 4S plugged into the dock sending digital audio through to my active speakers with built in DAC….
    But since upgrading to an iPhone 6, running IOS 8.1.1 which has a lightning port, I purchased an aftermarket ‘lightning to 30-pin female adapter cable’ to continue using the dock with my new iPhone.
    It doesn’t work. The adapter is not approved by Apple and somehow they have managed to bork all non-apple cables, ie it won’t charge, it won’t send digital audio. It’s essentially useless. Now, this is a cable that was manufactured & marketed specifically to allow iDevices with a lightning port to connect to digital transport docks, and I believe that it used to work with IOS 7.x, but it appears that with the rollout of IOS 8.x, Apple has done something that renders all non-apple cables redundant.
    Apple sell their own £30 adapter cable, but that has its own DAC built in to the unit – now stupid question time: If I used one of these cables, would it (a) Do nothing, just like the non-apple cable, (b) Convert the audio to analogue, then send the converted audio to the speakers (by analogue cable only), resulting in a lower quality reproduction?  Or (c) Would it bypass the DAC in the cable and send the digital signal to the speakers?
    Does anybody have any experience of this?

    If the 3rd party adapter doesn't work it is because it is a counterfeit device The manufacturer has failed to licence the lightning technology from Apple ergo it does not work
    Of course the Applr product will work ,infact most of the copies in very very small prin tsay in advert it does not support sound intended for charging only

  • Lightning to 30 pin adapter

    I currently have a 5th generation 30GB ipod that I use in my car with a cables to go 3.5mm to dock connector audio cable.
    I want to upgrade to a 32GB ipod touch and I was wondering if I use the Apple lightning to 30 pin adapter and connect it to my cables to go cable in my car will the touch give me a line out signal the way my current ipod and cable does so that I can listen through my cars audio system?
    Hope this makes sense.
    Thanks
    Frank

    I ended up cancelling my order for an iPod touch 4 and instead ordered an iPod touch 5 32GB.
    I received my iPod touch 5 yesterday and tried using the Lightning to 30 pin adapter in my car with the Cables to Go 30 pin connector to 3.5mm cable connected to the AUX port in my car and heard nothing through my cars stereo system.
    Fortunately when I ordered the iPod I also ordered another 30 pin connector to 3.5mm cable by Comprehensive and when I hooked up that cable in my car it seemed to work perfectly. Not sure what the difference in the cables could be, but I think I will pick up an extra one.

  • My Lightning to 30 pin adapter (Apple A1468) replacement

    My Apple lightning to 30 pin adapter (Apple A1468) stopped charging my iPad after 4 months. If I take it into an Apple store, will they replace it? It is a genuine Apple product which I purchased from Amazon. I no longer have the box it came in and I can't seem to find any information on if it has a warranty.

    All that stuff is on mine as well. The reason I had a suspicion is because the item link on Amazon from where I ordered it no longer exists... but I do remember it being advertised as a genuine Apple product when I ordered it (and it was fulfilled by Amazon) especially since I did my research and made sure not to get a generic since I read some pretty awful reviews on the generic adapters.

  • Iphone 5S lightning to 30 pin adapter - too short to keep on the case while using it! :(

    I just realized the adapter I need to connect the media station on my car (Audi A8) can only be used by taking the phone off from the case (Iphone 5S case blue color) : why the pin cannot be done a little longer, so to avoid taking the case off every time I need to recharge or to listen to my music ?
    This make no sense...
    The cable supplied by Apple is not suiting at its best when the cable from Belkin is pefectly working, I don't need to take the phone off from the case if I need to recharge!

    Because that is the way Apple designed it

  • Compatibility of lightning to 30-pins adapter with Camera Connection

    Hello,
    I had an iPad 2 with the 30-pin connection and used previous camera connection kit, which I used to download photos to my iPad. This kit has both an USB adapter and a SD card reader.
    Recently I upgraded to an iPad Air2 with lightning connector, and I was wondering if I buy the lightning to 30-pin adapter to use the camera connection kit I already own, or I should buy the new lightning to USB camera or SD reader adapters?
    Anyone is using correctly that combination (lightning to 30-pin adapter + 30-pin camera connection kit)?
    thanks for your help.
    Rafael Martinez

    The Lightning to 30 pin adapter and Camera Connection Kit combo works for me.

  • Dear Apple's people, please note that "Lightning to 30 pin Adapter" don't work with iPhone5 and iPhone5s "Base Dock"  !!!!

    Dear Apple's people, please note that "Lightning to 30 pin Adapter" don't work with iPhone5 and iPhone5s "Base Dock"  !!!!

    Ho comprato un adattatore originale Apple "lighitning to 30 pin adapter" per poter usare i mei vecchi cavi dell'iPhone4 con il nuovo iPhone5.
    Se collego l'adattatore (con il vecchio cavo delliPhone4) direttamente all'iPhone5 , tutto funziona.
    Ma se collego l'adattatore (con il vecchio cavo delliPhone4) all'iPhone5 tramite la "base dock" , l'adattatore non viene riconosciuto e non funziona.
    Pensando che l'adattatore fosse rotto, ho riprovato con altri identici adattatori originali, ma il risultatato è lo stesso.
    Quindi penso che potrebbe essere un errore di progettazione della base dock che supporta unicamente la connessione diretta tramite un cavo lighning e non supporta la connessione se in mezzo c'è l'adattatore !!

  • Please confirm whether a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter will work with Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter?

    Please confirm whether a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter is suppose to work with Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter?
    The Packaging of Lightning to 30-pin Adapter suggests it does.
    But I have tried this today and my IPad just stated Unsupported accessory.

    Expect Lightning extention cables in black shortly. Since extention need no special circuitry 3rd party's are already working on then.

  • Lightning to 30 Pin Adapter Charging Starts and Stops Intermittently

    I purchased two Lightning to 30 Pin adapters, and both are exhibiting the same problem.  They seem to start and stop charging intermittently on my iPhone 5, which, to be clear, is not in a case, nor is the adapter obstructed in any way.
    I purchased one for a dedicated iPhone/iPad charging station that I keep by my nightstand.  The adapters fit flush with the 30 pin connector on the charging station side.  At least three or four times during the night, the phone vibrates twice with the "you've just connected to power" alert and wakes me up. Trying the same thing in the car with the other adapter, the iPhone charging starts and stops while connected to my 12v power converter via a Twig cable.  When I connect the standard Lightning cable to either the charging dock (through its included USB ports) or directly to the same 12v converter plug in my car's cigarette lighter, I have no trouble charging at all.
    Has anyone else seen this behavior?  Could I have two faulty adapters (which doesn't seem likely), or is there something in the nature of the adapter that makes it turn on and off the charging on occasion?

    I have the same problem. I bought the same type of Speck Candy Shell case that I had for my 3GS iPhone. The $34.00 Lighting to 30-pin adapter will not fit through the case and into the IPhone 5. I just talked to Apple support and after being on hold 5 mins while the tech talked to her supervisor, the Apple solution is "take your case off the phone when you want to use the adapter". I hope thousands of us complain and Apple fixes this. If Apple had not been so secretive and talked to accessory manufacturers they would of know that the Adapter they designed was faulty. Now I how to drive to an Apple store to return the Adapter to get my money back. Only the USB cable will fit through the case into the iPhone 5.
    Bad Adapter design my Apple. Thats what happens when you design a product for millions of people - in a secretive bubble.

  • I recently bought a lightning to 30 pin adapter for my new iPad so that I could continue to use my 30 pin to VGA cord, but when I plug the VGA cord into it it says it is not supported. They are all apple products, so why doesn't it work?

    If it is a lightning to 30 pin adaptor, and you have a 7th Generation Nano it has to fit the Nano.
    This is lightning to 30 pin adapter: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Apple%26%23174%3B---Lightning-to-30-Pin-Adapter/6651 936.p?id=1218803450821&skuId=6651936#tab=overview
    Is this what you bought?
    You need to contact Sony and see if they model you have is compatible with the docking adapter. It may not be.

  • Lightning to 30-pin Adapter issues - flimsy and won't work with cases

    Anyone else having issues with the Lightning to 30-pin Adapter/Connectors? When applied to my Sony docking stations (numerous btw), the iPhone 5 barely rests securely on the connector AND the Lightning pin itself won't even fit or connect on the phone when the cases is on - this is iPhone 101 folks. I shall be returning all of my conenctors that I have purchased as they do me no good. Would really appreciate a proper fit and well stock of these items ASAP as its causing tremendouse aggrevation with the conenctor switchover.
