Hi,
I've recently got my A45S and have an iPhone 6S Plus, the problem is that any cables I've purchased for use in the car either stop the console door closing (they come almost vertically out of the USB C/CarPlay connector in the car) or/and I can't put my phone on top of the wirless charging unit (which I'm not using) because the straight lightning connectors make the phone too wide for the space :(

So simple question - has anyone found a USB C 90 degree to lightning 90 degree cable or any other solution that would work?

I had the same problem with an iPhone 7 (which I think is a bit shorter than a 6S plus) and this just fits in.

So I have one of these adaptors in the socket so the lid can close: Adaptor

And one of these 0.2m cables to the phone: Cable

The challenge is finding a USB-C to 90 Degree lightning cable at less than 1m long which I haven't managed yet. The nearest is this Lightning 90 Degree cable, or similar, and it would depend on how to loose the extra cable length.

I was searching for the same type of cable and ended up buying an accessory data cable for the DJI OSMO Pocket camera. It is a 30 cm cable with 90 degrees USB-C and lightning connector.

Unfortunately it seems to be a rare cable. I bought it here from a Danish web shop.

Thanks David, I already looked at this but a metre of cable in there isn't great :)

I’ve spotted a couple of AliExpress, but I doubt any of them are MFI certified, which might mean that they don’t work correctly.
Do you have a link for these Dave?

My cable turned up today, which is pretty good for something shipped from Hong Kong.
5969


It is a bit on the long side, but the right angle on both ends makes quite a difference to it fitting.
I only quickly tested it, but didn't come up with any errors regarding "not official"

Just received this cable from Banggood. Ordered in in November 2019.

60cm long. Lightning cable only is right angle.
