Default Angled lightning cable for dock

What source are you getting angled lightning cables from that are reliable and doesn’t give the old accessory not supported message. I just got the 9.7” iPad and getting it to fit in the dock is a little cumbersome with the straight cable.

This is for Eddie: I can't find the thread again, but I noticed awhile back members were having difficulties using a 9.7" iPad in the dock and connecting the lightning cable without using a right-angle lightning cable.

Will the 10.5" iPad adapter work with a 9.7" iPad? I would assume that, if it will, that would resolve the lightning cable issue.

Has anyone tried this?

Yes the smaller iPad will work with the new adapter but that has nothing to do with the connector. I'll check mine on Tuesday but i think the connector is OK

I just got the cable in and installed it on my new 9.7" iPad and put it in the dock. Works perfectly!! Leaves plenty of room on either side and no stress on the lightning cable.

At $10 on Amazon its great!!!
