This is just the outline on how to use the VGA Adapter to connect your iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, or iPod touch (4th generation) to an external TV, projector, or display.
The Apple VGA Adapter supports video out (only) for iPad, iPhone 4, or iPod touch (4th generation).
Use the Apple VGA Adapter to mirror whatever’s on your iPad 2 screen (or later) — apps, presentations, websites, and more — on your VGA-equipped TV, display, projector or other compatible display in up to 1080p HD. Watch slideshows and video on the big screen in up to 720p by connecting your iPad, iPhone 4, or iPod touch (4th generation) to a television, projector, or other VGA-compatible display.
Apps "mirror" by default—the external display will show the same content as the iPad 2 or later or iPhone 4S screen—unless designed to display different output on the external display. When first connecting, it may take up to 20 seconds for the device display to appear on the external display.
To use the VGA cable:
- Plug the dock connector into your device
- Plug the VGA connector into the VGA port on your display or TV
- Set your display or TV to the appropriate input (might be called PC or VGA)
- Mirror the video on your iPad 2 or launch a video-out app like iPod, Keynote, etc. on previous generation devices.
- If you dont have sound, you will have to attach a 3.5mm headset to RCA stereo audio adapter to the audio ports on your display or TV as well.
Any questions on how to connect your apple to device to appear on a larger display, just let me know!
