The HDMI Adapter from Apple supports mirroring of what is displayed on your device screen to your HDMI-equipped TV, display, projector, or other compatible display in up to 1080p HD. The adapter comes in three primary versions:
- Lightning-HDMI: For apple devices with a lightning port (most current Apple devices)
- USB-C to HDMI: For Apple iPads released in October 2018. Future Apple devices will likely transition to USB-C from Lightning.
- Apple 30-Pin to HDMI: This is for the older 30-Pin Apple connector, which was discontinued in September 2014.
When it comes to movie night - bigger is better.
But a lot of the best options for streaming via cellular unlimited data plans are limited to "on device data" - blocking the connection from easily being shared with your big screen in your RV living room.
Most video services that allow you to download content offline will generally only download to a mobile device.
A great way around this is to use your smartphone or tablet to drive the big screen directly via a hard-wired HDMI video cable. With Apple products, this is easy via their HDMI Adapter.
You can use the Digital AV Adapter with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod - you just need to match the adapter to the device's port (30-pin, lightning or USB-C).
Simply attach the Adapter to the connector on your device and then to your TV or projector via an HDMI cable (sold separately).
Price: $12.00-$60.00 (depending on version)
We thoroughly reviewed the lightning port version of this product. The other versions should perform similarly. Members have access to review details - and a video review - below.
