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.

Seems to work well with other apps so far

      Inconsistent connection

      Dislike: Inconsistent HMDI connection from an iPhone 4 and worse from an iPad 2. The connection behaves as if there is a short in the cable... very frustratin Dislike: Inconsistent HMDI connection from an iPhone 4 and worse from an iPad 2. The connection behaves as if there is a short in the cable... very frustrating! Returned the first purchase, because I thought the product may have been returned damaged; however, second purchase behaved exactly the same. I believe Apple should consider a redesign; great idea, but simply does not work well.

      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.

      Terrible Product

      Bought a genuine Apple AV Adapter. Should be gold plated for the price. It works sparotically sometimes. No audio, no picture, no nothing periodically. I've spe Bought a genuine Apple AV Adapter. Should be gold plated for the price. It works sparotically sometimes. No audio, no picture, no nothing periodically. I've spent more time rebooting the darned system than watching Net Flix which is why it was purchased. Fiddle with it, and finally when I do get a picture, and put the phone down, beside the TV, it quits. Start all over again. This is ludicrous! Thanks Apple for a product that is inferior.

      Time for change

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.
