Does anyone know if Anker has ever made a lightning to aux adapter?

Don’t believe they have but certainly would be in line to purchase one as my Apple version is close to being on it’s last legs :laughing:

lol. Only Apple would ever need a product as silly as this :joy:.

I just use Bluetooth anyway lol

I sold mine with my iPhone 7 Plus and they didn’t come with one on the XS Max and I refuse to by one from Apple so I could defo do with one as a back up.

That is always one of my old jokes:

You have a modern slim phone or Macbook, light weighted and nice.

You need a pile of adapters and cables which has more weight than your device. :joy:

Oooo nice I don’t have any use for one of those yet but I’m sure there are other people out there who are excited

Lol :joy:. The input is lightning :joy:. I guess you figured that out :joy:

yea looks exactly like USB-C on both sides though… lmao

thats what i wanted!

i couldn’t find any on the net… great innovations anker!

Apple devices have a history of small compact devices … be it phone, Mac or tablet with all these big attachments to the device for audio , video, charging, … Not sure if this is an upgrade or downgrade :flushed:

With that being said, there is a big market for all these connector brands for Apple devices. Good to see the USB-C to Lightening connector adapter from Anker.

Thanks for sharing!

We need this on Amazon Australia Now!!! Anker Now!!! There’s only one other site that sells it (www.macfixit.com.au for AUD $69.99). What a rip off, Not happy at all!

Upgraded my IPad Pro to IpadOS 13 Beta
and this stopped working completely. I hope this is fixed in the final update.

I’m sure it will be. Report it to Apple though :wink:. I’m on iOS 13…

Use the Apple Feedback App (Gets installed by default on all Beta and Developer versions of Apple platforms such as iOS, MacOS, iPadOS) on iPad and provide the details along with logs to make sure the issue gets addressed!!


I’ve submitted 6 so far, and am about to submit a 7th :innocent:
