This adapter will plug into an IPhone 5, however a cord will not plug into it. All Apple products must have genuine Apple accessories as far as electronic ones go in order to work. While this USB adapter looks like an Apple product, obviously it is not. I rated the quality average because, I do not know for sure, therefore I am neutral. I rated the value poor, because I have no use for it. So overall, the adapter earns two stars from me. I will not recommend this to anyone I know with an IPhone5.
