Keyboard for iPhone

I use this to connect a full size keyboard to my work phone. That means, if I'm just reading emails, I don't have to turn on my laptop.

No Better Than Generic

I bought the official Apple camera adapter because I had naively assumed this would guarantee compatibility with our iPad Pro. How foolish of me! Many of our peripherals will not work without the addition of other accessories, and none of our cameras were recognized until we updated the OS. Sure, updating the OS isn't a big deal, but it makes one wonder what would have happened if we had bought this thing when we first got the iPad and that update wasn't even available yet? Just suffer that it can't recognize common Nikon and Sony cameras? Our iPad is only a couple years old... That covers the software issues, but let's talk about the actual hardware for a moment. As you can see in the photo, the connecting cable is extremely short. This makes it nearly impossible to use without putting severe stress and strain on both the iPad's lightning socket and on the wire. This would no doubt cause one or the other (or both) to fail in a very short time if the user isn't extremely careful with handling it. The only safe ways we've found to use it are to either leave the iPad sitting flat on a surface (which would cause trouble for anyone needing to use it on a stand, like when a musician is using it to connect a peripheral to a music app, a common reason to use this), or alternatively you can connect a USB extension cable to it so the force isn't as sharp on it. I cannot understand why Apple didn't see this obvious problem that could easily be solved by making the cable just a few inches longer. Seems to me they WANT it to fail quickly so you'll have to buy a new one. Yet another shoddy product from an overvalued company who's sole purpose seems to be creating products for the wannabe faux bourgeoisie to show off their petty wealth through conspicuous consumption.

Didn't work

I try to use the adapter to connect a SD/compact flash card reader. I wouldn't work with my iPhone or iPad while attempting to use either an SD card or compact flash card. I got an error message that it used too much power. Ultimately, I bought an Apple adapter that could accommodate a power cord and that did the trick.

Not what I wanted

This adapter didn't do what I wanted it to do (stream music digitally from my phone), but I'm sure it probably works as the camera adapter it's advertised as. Oh well, another expensive adapter sitting in a box until I need it for something else....
