I would like to use two lightning-connections on my new iPhone that only has one lightning-connector. Are the available lightning-splitters any good ?
Yes and No.
Yes, if you only want to use a pair of wired headphones and charge your iPhone at the same time, all lightning-splitters I’ve tested are up to the job. And if you have a USB-headphone (or a mini-jack-to-USB-adapter) you could even use the Apple Lightning Camera Connector.
But if you want to connect anything else, the lightning-splitters that I’ve found won’t do the job… even the ones that claim to support data syncing didn’t support in iOS 12 in my testing…
So, for now it’s only power&audio-splitters…
My recommendations would be :
- if you want a mini-jack-adapter for your headphone : get the Auswar Lightning Audio Splitter
- if you want data-transfer : get the Apple Lightning Camera Connector
