It appears the Lighnting "plug" included in with the Osmo Pocket won't connect or plug in to an Iphone if you have a "rugged" case.  I've got an Otterbox on my Iphone XR and the plug doesn't reach because of the cases size.

I don't want to remove Iphone from the case in those instances I want to use the Mimo app.  Anyone have suggestions or links to "adaptors" to lenghthen the plug?

Thanks for the reply.  Sanding down the sides of the OP plug won't work as when plugged into the phone it's supposed to fit flush.  Issue is the case is "thicker" thereby the plug needs to be longer or have an extension.   

Changing out cases isn't an option for me.  Otterbox cases has saved my Iphones over the years from damage.  I trust them.        

I was hoping someone found an "extension" or adaptor.  OR using the USB-C OP plug and then finding some type of USB-C to Lightning adaptor...

Thanks again for the response..

an extension adaptor will result in a very unrealible connection.
But you could use lightning extension cable to fit on the OP and into the iphone.

Same issue with the USB-C connector.  I get they'll never have a size that works for everyone, but it seems like if they had one just 1/8" longer it would help a lot of people.  Would gladly pay for/order such a thing.

Get a usb-c to lightening cable and connect it from the bottom, make sure the side connector is inactive. That should work for you, you’ll just have the phone in one hand and the OP in the other. I would also prefer a slightly longer connector to work with my moment case, I have a case it will work with, but not a fan of switching cases, over and over again.

Order this short cable from IOGear and you can connect it to the bottom of the OP. Your standard lighting cable will then connect to the IOGear cable.

I tried that adapter and didn’t work through the usb c. iPhone X. Should it work on my phone?

Did you disconnect the phone adapter from the OP? It won't work with the phone adapter plugged into the OP!

I use a Lightning extender with my Otterbox case, and I talk about it in this video. Works fine.
