rexpo 3mm removed from the bottom of the platform would have been ideal for me, yes! I ended up making a shim to raise the Lightning adapter a half millimetre, and now it actually works just fine. Phone goes in and out no problem and connects to the adapter. It is SO nice to be able to use my phone in the universal dock again with the IR remote! Thanks for making these adapter a available to us!
rexpo iPhone 6S with Apple leather case. The extra 1.5mm clearance on the back makes for a perfect fit, but the bottom of the case prevents the phone from seating in the lightning connector. I'll have to go at this adapter with a dremel tool to make it usable. Also, now that I re-read the description, "polished to reveal a smooth matte finish" I really wonder how rough the unpolished version is... The adapter I received has a matte finish, I can't see that it's been polished.
But for those considering such an adapter, I can report that the IR remote control does work! For me, this makes the purchase well worth the price (once I have filed it down so the phone seats properly)
