I need a 30-pin (iPhone 4) to Lightning (iPhone 5) with a long cable (1m) between the 2 ends.

Does such thing exist?


Apple sells a Lightning to 30-pin adapter.

If you're okay with 3rd-party solution, 30-pin female to Lightning adapter could be closer to what you need, but there could be compatibility issues.

The kit includes this:

to which you can add Lightning 1m-extension cable which should get you from Lightning to 30-pin.

As far as I can see there is no single cable that does what you want.

  • Thanks Paul- I wanted a female 30pin end with a longer cable that ends in a lightning end. This is for a car ausio system that has a 30pin male end but I need to stretch the phone from there to the dashboard wher I can see the display (the connector is in a central console between the two front seats. Any suggestions? – Fin C Gray Aug 5 '14 at 11:49
  • The Apple connector is pathetically short. If it had a metre long cable between the 2 ends it would be perfect for my needs – Fin C Gray Aug 5 '14 at 11:51
  • I've updated my answer with a possible solution – Paul Gilfedder Aug 5 '14 at 12:33
  • The extension cable link is now dead. – DavidSupportsMonica Jun 4 '18 at 14:11
  • unfortunately both 3rd party links are now dead – Stephen Lead Nov 2 at 23:32
