Be wary of 3rd party sellers they are shipping out cheap copies!.
on 28 September 2013
The adapter I received in a small plastic sleeve was not an official adapter made by apple as stated on amazon. It is a much cheaper copy.
My iPhone 5 is running IOS7 and although when using the adapter there are no errors the adapter does not provide full functionality. It allows charging, syncing but won't allow audio playback (through docks etc).
Some of the reviews seem to contradict this, I can only guess that the adapters sent out are not the same "batch".
1 stars for charging and syncing but overall I am disappointed the product is not genuine as I was led to believe!

I returned my adapter for a refund and then reordered (no problem), this time I selected Amazon as the seller (which is not the default!). Check the listing says "Dispatched from and sold by Amazon." if you want to ensure you the the genuine article. I ended up paying £15 and the adapter I received is the proper genuine item and works as it should!.
Updated review, 3 stars. It works as it should and well but in all fairness this should have been included with all new lightning devices. It's a bit of a rip off for what it is, really they should be using standardized micro-usb. That said, this is apple, and they do have shareholders to keep happy....
