What is USB?
Commonly found on desktop computers and laptops, USB connections are among the most versatile type of connections. USB is primarily used for transferring data between devices, but it also has the ability to transfer power between compatible devices. Currently four versions of USB exist – USB 3.1 (10Gbps), USB 3.0 (5Gbps), USB 2.0 (450Mbps) and USB 1.1 (12Mbps). In most cases cables are compatible across all versions but maximum transfer speed may be limited. For example, a USB 2.0 cable in a USB 3.0 port would only provide a maximum transfer rate of 450Mbps, not 5Gbps. To achieve optimum transfer speeds here, a USB 3.0 cable should be used.

why use this USB-A to Lightning connector
The Apple Lightning cable enables charging and data transfer from your Apple Lightning-enabled device. Connect to your PC for charging and data transfer, or to a USB power adapter for charging only.

Would you expect this cable to connect to a car audio to play music.  It does not seem to although the long apple cable that came with the phone does. I wanted a shorter length so that there Is less cable cluttering the place up

Asked by: Nicko
We would not expect this to allow connection to a car, it is designed for charging and data to a PC or Mac. That said if the Apple supplied one does work there should be no issue with this one, but we would not consider it faulty if it did not perform this function.
