So you think a Chinese £1.17 one is going to be better than an official one?

We’re now on iOS 11.2.6....
Is it going to work with iOS 11.2.6 or you have to downgrade to iOS 10.2 which is impossible to do

I may be wrong but, how on earth can these connectors ony be for one version of ios??
I bought one of these lightning connectors from Ebay before and it only works with ios10 and below so no point getting this unless you have a old iPhone 4 lying around inside your old shoebox underneath the boxes in the backroom storage where you haven’t been for the last 10 Years
The adaptor has not only an authentication chip in it but also a DAC. So even if this works it’s going to have the worst DAC in the known universe, so a pair of studio headphones would sound like a pair of potatoes.

I have a IPhone 4 has old software and it works with iOS 10. iPhone 5s can still be updated and it is not old as iPhone 4.

My only light to you is buy a iPhone 4 and check it for yourself.

That’s a very very “expensive light”
TheiPhone 4 has a head phone jack and no lightning port. Sure that’s a wind up question.

I cant find my official one so got a cheapo one and they all suck. None of these cheapo third party adapters work as good as official Apple ones. Look the same but internally they’re clearly not of the same quality.

iPhone 4 only goes to iOS 7 and 4s to iOS 9 and has a 30 pin connector so what are you talking about?

Buying this headphone adapter is pointless, Apple sells the official one for £9, as far as even they go it’s not too unreasonable, just buy the official one and be done with it (however not if you have an iPhone 4 as it won’t fit...)

Also it has a jack point on all iPhones until the 7 and 7+

Yes I know, just the original comment was so ridiculous I didn't even need to point that out as well!

Lol I know don’t think people know what this adapter is for or just people winding up
Anyone has a replacement for the official jack lightning for iOS11+ ?
Well, as long as Apple accepts to replace the cable everytime it breaks its much easier to go for the official solution

No, there’s a lot of these cheapie Chinese copies around (plenty of them on eBay) that warn they only work up to iOS 10., they don’t have the correct chip for authentication so won’t work with iOS 11.

Total waste of money, even if it is less than £2.

Yeah true, I've just bought three of them, different ones: they are crap compared to original ones and only good to give away or in case of emergency.
They do work on iOS11 though
