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.

      Updated my iPad 3 to ios6 and my adapter no longer works

      First let me preface this by saying I updated my iPhone for iPhone 4S iPad 2 to iOS 6 and the adapter still works. I bought a brand-new iPad 3 w/ ios6 And the a First let me preface this by saying I updated my iPhone for iPhone 4S iPad 2 to iOS 6 and the adapter still works. I bought a brand-new iPad 3 w/ ios6 And the adapter does not work at all. If you look at the description for this product it shows iPad third-generation as compatible. This is unacceptable! And ridiculous! So what's Apple's goal to make everyone by AppleTV and not use $25 hdmi adapter fot ther devices. Don't get me wrong the Apple TV is cheap and it's only $99 but that's another expenditure. And the idea of playing what's on my iOS device with just the air is pretty cool.

      Does not work!!!!!!!!

      I just bought this product and was excited to be able to watch the videos on my ipad on the tv. Unfortulately the imaging works for everything except video. Y I just bought this product and was excited to be able to watch the videos on my ipad on the tv. Unfortulately the imaging works for everything except video. You can hear the video, but not see the image. This is a huge waste of money if you want to use it for this purpose. Don't waste your money.

      BOYCOTT APPLE

It never worked once with my ipho This is unacceptable, I paid too much money for the simple ability to send a signal through an adaptor and it can not do that. It never worked once with my iphone 4s at ios8. The way that apple promotes "planned obsolescence" by making their old devices incapable of performing actions -once a new device comes out- to force consumers to buy the newer more expensive devices is deceitful towards its customers and environmentally dangerous (because useless consumer electronics end up contributing to long term e-waste). I would much rather have the galaxy note 2 or a google phone, they are simply better, more advanced phones at a cheaper price. Of course, if you're a slave to trends like some teenage girl I understand why it's so hard to make the obvious choice of abandoning a company that falls behind it's competitors and treats its consumers like children as it sells them devices with time limits to fail, when a device like an iphone should be able to last for decades.

      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.

      Unbelievably poor quality for an Apple product!

      Like so many others, I am shocked that Apple released such a defective product under its own brand name. Getting a connection established is touch-and-go at Like so many others, I am shocked that Apple released such a defective product under its own brand name. Getting a connection established is touch-and-go at best, then it keeps dropping out. The slightest, most miniscule movement of cable/connector is enough to destroy the connection between iPad and screen, then it's back to try, try and try again to get a sustained link before it terminates yet again. Every time, we are advised that it is "not a supported accessory" - even though the Apple Store happily sold it to us! Utterly appalling product quality and almost unusable. Avoid at all costs! You are much better off using the VGA adapter. Contrary to expectations, it's a far superior product in every respect.
