    Device not supported?

    • Written by from Seattle

    I just tried to plug my new ipad air into a fairly recently purchased VGA monitor. The connections fit perfectly, and I did plug them in in the order recommended. However, as soon as I plugged in to the ipad, it said "this device not supported by this ipad" What does that mean? Anyway, it wouldn't work. Am I missing something???

    Past bad reviews are missing the mark!

    • Written by from Ottawa

    There has been a lot of negative reviews about this VGA adaptor, saying it can't be used to mirror iphone or ipad screens, not so! It works just fine with iphone4S and 2nd gen Ipad. does eveything it is supposed to. I hooked it up to a monitor with external speakers and plugged in the VGA cable and adaptor and plugged in the speakers to the earphone jack on my Iphone and it worked beautifully! Don't let the negative reviews deter you. It might not work on older equipment, but IPhone 4s or newer it works just as you would expect!

    I'm really pleased with this adaptor, it works brilliantly with my iPhone 4S and ipad 3, it allows you to completely clone your screen to an external display, brilliant for keynote, apps and much more, thank you

    Doesn't work with new iOS 7 as before

    • Written by from South Deerfield

    Buyer Beware.
    This product doesn't work anymore with Netflix app on iOS7. This is what I bought it for. Sadly the product had once worked wonderfully with all these and the rest of the apps on my ipad and iphone before I updated the iOS to 7. In fact, I loved it before updating the OS to 7 since it essentially did what it was advertised to do...mirror my video on either my ipad or iphone 4 onto my TV or projector connected to VGA. It no longer does as advertised now that I upgraded to iOS7. For everyone's information and clarity, my wife still has iOS 6 on her phone and this connector works perfectly with Netflix and other apps for her. I, however, upgraded my ipad and iphone to iOS 7 and it no longer works with Netflix on those devices that were upgraded.

    Shame on you Apple for selling a connector that YOU designed and sold that doesn't work as advertised with an upgrade to the iOS YOU also designed.
    For those thinking this is a Netflix app issue. My wife's iphone with iOS6 is running the same Netflix app version as my iphone with iOS7....and as I wrote, her's works with Netflix and mine doesn't.
    In addition, how can Apple support Netflix when someone is connected with Apple TV, but not when using this connector? I suppose this is a way for Apple to try to pry an additional $60-$70 bucks from me for the Apple TV device.
    Again....shame on you Apple. I'm getting really sick of your greed.

    Mirroring works

    • Written by from Helensburgh

    Not sure what all the complaints are about re: mirroring. Was able to successfully mirror my iPhone4s and iPad2. And by mirroring, I mean everything. Home screens, videos, games. For those with an older plasma TV (like me) or for those who don't want to pay for an AppleTV (mind you you need to connect the headphone jack of your iOS device to separately), this is such an affordable option. I use the cable to connect to both my monitor at work and TV at home. Very happy.

    Best purchase ever!

    • Written by from TAURANGA

    I was a bit worried about purchasing this product after reading the reviews but then I realised most the negative reviews were from years ago and were due to the limitations of the ipad 1. I had already brought a knock off version of this adapter, and it was extremely temperamental so I needed something reliable.
    I use my apple adapter daily and haven't had a single issue. Works perfectly and has made me life so much easier.

    A liitle short and too pricey

    • Written by from Ballyclare

    I have used this cable now for some time, first with an iPad (first gen) then with my current iPad (3rd Gen). My wife has also used it with her iPad 2 and I have tried it with my iPhone 4S. Works with them all.

    I use this to connect my iPad to a data projector when giving lectures, sometimes for slides using Keynote but more often when I am showing video clips. I have only two criticisms. The first is that it could do with being a little longer and more flexible and the second is that at £25 it is rather expensive.

    Great for the occasional presentation.

    • Written by from Edinburgh

    I bought this product for University business presentations and it has worked perfectly every time, the iPad immediately recognised what it was required to do and switched into presentation mode within keynote. The cable means little time is required to connect up the inputs and get everything running, very efficient.

    Great product, lovely design.

    Good. Works as expected.

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    It just works as expected. It mirrors my iPad2 and iPad3 to projector, both my iPad are IOS 6.1.3, no special steps to connect it, no need restart iPad, no need connect VGA cable first, ... just connect it and it works. In iPad iTunes, since I do not have account, I am not sure if I purchased a movie it will work or not. But when I play the movie trailers in iTunes, the iPad shows "This video is playing on TV", the trailers show on the projector. Thanks.

    Works well.

    • Written by from Taylors

    I have no idea what all of these reviews are talking about. I have used this adapter for training and presentation for a long time with great success. Everything I do mirrors perfectly onto my monitor/projector immediately, and my iPad is not jailbroken. Only a few apps don't mirror, but that's typically because those apps have their own built in restrictions (NFL Mobile, Xfinity, etc.).

    I have an iPad3 with a 30pin connector. My only reason for not rating it five stars is that I would like to be able to charge at the same time as I'm projecting.

    iPad Unplugged

    • Written by from Kingston

    As soon as I rehearsed a presentation with my new cable, I realized that it does not stay plugged into my iPad 2. A really sloppy fit that makes a reliable presentation impossible. I'll return it as soon as I get back into town. I'm not using an elastic band to hold it in place while trying to show off my new ebook at promotional events.

    But, the reviews here only begin to mention the unplugging issue starting August 2012, so I wonder if this is a new phenomena. Maybe its a bad batch of plugs.

    Waste of time and a con

    • Written by from Heston

    This cable does not do what it says. You cannot play most iTunes purchased movies or tv shows on an external display because of some dodgy protection mechanism which is baked into the iPad not the movie. If th movie can be played using the composite cables then the protection is against the use of the vga nt the actual content.

    Apple is conning us with this cable.

    What a waste of time and money. I want a full refund and compensation for time wasted in purchasing and downloading the movies I have done.

    OOOOPS!

    • Written by from Marietta

    Had no problems getting this to work, just getting it to stay plugged in to the iPad. The cable keeps disconnecting with the slightest bump. Makes it unusable in a classroom. Why not add that little locking mechanism like the chargers for cell phones have? As it stands, I would give away the one I have for FREE because I really can't use it.

    Does the Job!

    • Written by from hong kong

    The VGA adapter mirrors my ipad2 just as the description had said. No problem working all my apps. Only draw back is the picture quality is poor at 720p when I am streaming live sports, but no complains because the description said it will reduce quality to 720p. If you want to mirror your ipad2 or higher content on your hdtv or lcd monitor, this is the product to get.

    Product Breaks

    • Written by from Leland

    I am in a school here, where we use these in the classroom to project. Unfortunately, teachers keep wondering why they can't get theirs to work. Well, the cables look perfect, but something inside them gets loose or jarred, and the connection between the iPad and the VGA breaks.

    If this products gets a decent amount of use, it appears to break. For a $30 product, I would hope for a better lifetime on these. May as well be a $10 knockoff if I should expect to replace them quickly.

    • Written by from Fruitvale

    Don't buy this if you want to watch anything from iTunes. Not supported, was told at the Apple store I could! Looks like they need to do more employee training.
