    I have the Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter, and I use it to plug the Apple Ethernet tu USB adapter to get internet.

    It works with all my other iPhones and iPads: iPhone 5s, SE, iPad Mini 3, iPad 4.

    But, when I try it with the Ethernet adapter on my iPhone 6 Plus, it doesn't work.
    Also, in the case of the iPhone 6 Plus, the power MUST be fed from the wall plug (instead of from the iMac with my other devices), otherwise, the 6 Plus wouldn't charge up.

    Have you tried getting wired internet with a 6 Plus?

    I have no idea what you are trying to do?

    are you trying to use your phone as a router/modem for your mac? why not make your phone a hot spot instead of all those converters and wires

    I just want to surf the internet from my iPhone, via an Ethernet cable, instead of wifi, because it's much more stable for large downloads.
