Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter

  • Overview

    Use the Apple Digital AV Adapter to mirror whatever’s on your iPad or iPhone 4S screen — apps, presentations, websites, and more — on your HDTV or HDMI-compatible display in up to 1080p HD (movies play at up to 720p). Watch slideshows and movies on the big screen in up to 720p by connecting your iPad, iPhone 4, or iPod touch (4th generation) to an HDTV or HDMI-compatible display. The Apple Digital AV Adapter routes digital audio to screens that support it. Connect the Apple Digital AV Adapter to your iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or iPod touch (4th generation) via the 30-pin dock connector and to your HDMI-compatible display using an HDMI cable (sold separately). A second 30-pin connector built into the AV adapter lets you charge and sync your device while it’s connected to your HDMI-compatible display.

      Excellent piece of kit.

      Just the job works perfectly. You will need an HDMI cable to act as your extension cable. Note the extra connection that will let you charge the iPad as you use Just the job works perfectly. You will need an HDMI cable to act as your extension cable. Note the extra connection that will let you charge the iPad as you use it to play through your TV etc. Note also that when you connect to your iPad it locks to it, (to stop accidental disconnection) when you want to detach, use the little release button at the side not really visible.Works fine with Youtube, BBC player ITV player, iTunes movies and most useful in my case Netflix movies streamed from the internet. Used with new iPad no problems at all.

      Amazing!!!

      This dongle is really fantastic. I used it with my iPhone 4S and my iPad2, it does everything I need. I think it is a new version since it only works with iOS This dongle is really fantastic. I used it with my iPhone 4S and my iPad2, it does everything I need. I think it is a new version since it only works with iOS 5.1 and it comes in a new package. it perfectly mirrors my devices and I can watch movies on the TV (with HD content the quality is great). For games is the must-have accessory. I'm looking forward for receiveing my New iPad, I'll get rid of my gaming consolle and use the new iPad when I want to play games on the TV. Totally worth the 39 bucks.

      Works fantastic but be aware of app support for the component.

      I bought this so I could play games and Video on my TV through my iPhone and iPad. And as I expected it works exactly how I expected it. I didn't even realise I bought this so I could play games and Video on my TV through my iPhone and iPad. And as I expected it works exactly how I expected it. I didn't even realise that there are even some apps and games that are optimised for this cable such as Real Racing HD which turns my iPad into the controller while the racing occurs on screen. Absolutely fantastic. My only gripe is not with the component but with certain apps, such as Sky Go, Sky Sports, Love Film and I'm sure there are others that won't work with the component at all, so it won't even mirror whats is on screen in those apps. It would have been nice to be able to watch Sky on my friends TV with Sky Go but what can you do!

      Five Star or One Star, iOS version dependent, watch out!

      Have been using one of these for a few years with an older iPad (the first retina display model) flawlessly, until I did an update over Christmas '15 that moved Have been using one of these for a few years with an older iPad (the first retina display model) flawlessly, until I did an update over Christmas '15 that moved it beyond iOS 8 to 9.x. Then I was shocked to find it intermittently stop/starts working. As there is no way to roll back the OS to fully functioning, now I'm left with a frustrating routine of plugging/unplugging until it works. I've done a little experimenting with a couple of iPhone 4S's and it works well with the 64Gb iPhone on iOS 9.0, yet does not work at all on a16Gb iPhone 4s with either of the currently signed versions of iOS 9.2. So, thanks for that Apple. I've a good half dozen, well engineered and functioning older apple products that apple seem intent on crippling - obviously some bug has been introduced but will it ever be sorted? Should come with a warning along those lines. If you've an older iOS 7-8-9.0, this is a great product.

      Time for change

      This is not the first time accesories for my iPad 3 suddenly stopped working. Might not be a bad thing although frustrating as I am starting to lean more and This is not the first time accesories for my iPad 3 suddenly stopped working. Might not be a bad thing although frustrating as I am starting to lean more and more to Windows 10 devices this is the push I need to move away from Apple. You cant just sell original accessories and a year later just make them fail. It is simple unacceptable..

      Start Playing video before plugging in Adapter

      I discovered that I must start playing content full screen on the iPad 2 before plugging in the adapter to the iPad. If you do this it works great. If you plug I discovered that I must start playing content full screen on the iPad 2 before plugging in the adapter to the iPad. If you do this it works great. If you plug in the adapter and then try and watch video it will not work. Watching the CBC TV videos does not work well if you use the CBC app as the video quality is low, but using this adapter and playing directly from the web site the video is clear.
