    I teach high school and thought the vga iPad dock connector would allow me to project everything I see while using the iPad, but a I teach high school and thought the vga iPad dock connector would allow me to project everything I see while using the iPad, but alas there are severe limitations to which applications will show on the classroom LCD projector.
    I wish I had known this before purchasing the connector. The Apple Store description says the connector will display slideshows and movies, but I didn't realize that was it...

Don't they realize that people buy these accessories mostly to do demos of apps, or to mirror whatever's on their device's screen? This basic scenario does not work with this adapter. I found that it only works when playing video, or if you're a developer and you write special code in your app to support an external screen. So buyer beware...

  • External VGA Monitor does not work with IOS 8

    I use the Mac and iPad to connect to external monitors for presentations, videos and showing Internet sites. I upgraded to IOS on I use the Mac and iPad to connect to external monitors for presentations, videos and showing Internet sites. I upgraded to IOS on my iPad 3. Now I am shocked to learn it will not support the Apple adapter that I used with IOS 7. I cannot find any information on whether Apple intends to fix it. I also cannot find any information on a viable alternative. I am stuck.

    Since downloading the 8.0.2 update, I have not been able to use this. Either nothing at all happens or I get a message saying it is not supported by this device (iPad 2). I have had the same issue with my generic HDMI adapter which worked fine before the update as well.

    Meanwhile, my three-year old Toshiba laptop connects just fine and displays whatever I want it to.

    Apple is roaring into the 1990s like no-bodies' business.

    Worked very well up to the latest upgrade of iOS 7.1.2, now just gives "this accessory is not supported by this iPad error". Comp Worked very well up to the latest upgrade of iOS 7.1.2, now just gives "this accessory is not supported by this iPad error". Completely useless and a waste of money, much like the Camera Connection Kit I bought. Avoid this or avoid updating your iPad. Utterly pointless spending more money for official Apple stuff when it doesn't work.
