Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Connecting the iPad to an external display, part of iPad Tips and Tricks.
- There may be times when you'll want…to connect your iPad to a larger display,…either to have bigger screen on which to work,…or to display your iPad screen for a…presentation or maybe to watch a movie.…There are different types of displays…you can connect your iPad to such as…a TV, a computer monitor, or a projector…and each method requires a certain type…of adapter or other hardware to make the connection.…Let's start with connecting to a TV.…Now this is assuming you have an HDTV…which generally all come with HDMI ports.…If you have an older tube television,…it's still possible to connect your iPad to it…but adapters are getting increasingly difficult…to find and generally whatever you're displaying…from your iPad won't look very good or sharp…so I'm going to stick with modern HDTVs here.…
All HDTVs have HDMI input ports which carry…both digital video and audio signals…and which you probably already use to connect…a Blu-Ray player or a cable box to your TV.…To connect an iPad through this port you'll need…a Lightning to HDMI adapter…
