    Excellent piece of kit.

    • Written by from LONDON

    Just the job works perfectly. You will need an HDMI cable to act as your extension cable. Note the extra connection that will let you charge the iPad as you use it to play through your TV etc. Note also that when you connect to your iPad it locks to it, (to stop accidental disconnection) when you want to detach, use the little release button at the side not really visible.Works fine with Youtube, BBC player ITV player, iTunes movies and most useful in my case Netflix movies streamed from the internet. Used with new iPad no problems at all.

    Works fantastic but be aware of app support for the component.

    • Written by from Heston

    I bought this so I could play games and Video on my TV through my iPhone and iPad. And as I expected it works exactly how I expected it.
    I didn't even realise that there are even some apps and games that are optimised for this cable such as Real Racing HD which turns my iPad into the controller while the racing occurs on screen. Absolutely fantastic.
    My only gripe is not with the component but with certain apps, such as Sky Go, Sky Sports, Love Film and I'm sure there are others that won't work with the component at all, so it won't even mirror whats is on screen in those apps. It would have been nice to be able to watch Sky on my friends TV with Sky Go but what can you do!

    Not for IOS 6

    • Written by from ROSS-ON-WYE

    About to buy one of these for new iPad but saw some posts so checked with Apple to be told that this device DOES NOT WORK WITH IOS6.

    I think this should be said on this page by Apple rather than reviewers!

    Was brilliant, now 0 starts

    • Written by from polbeth

    This was a wonderful addition to my Apple collection.
    Until I upgraded my iPad (post iPad 2 version) to iOS 6.

    Now 'this device is unsupported'.

    1 star because you can;t post 0

    Should have expected it.

    I purchased a camera adapted for my iPod (they call it the classic now) but when the iPod touch came out, it didn;t work either. Built in obsolescence.....love it,

    Why sell if it doesn't work with latest OS?

    • Written by from London

    Bought this 3 days ago from Apple store in Westfield (Stratford). Put simply, it's not fit for purpose. It doesn't work. Audio, but no picture! Have now read other reviews and it looks like an IOS6 issue. How can they have automatic upgrades which are not compatible with products they are selling in store? Nowhere on packaging does it say that it does NOT work with latest OS! And guess what, no way of rolling back to, or simply uploading, an older OS which I understand works fine with this adapter.

    Not good enough, I'd given "0" out of 5 too...but I can't!

    Av adaptor won't work

    • Written by from nr. maidstone

    I can't get this device to work , just tells me that iPad doesn't support the device. Apple refuse to help because I bought the iPad in march even though I only got the device 2 weeks ago. Poor service apple I want a refund.

    No longer works after iOS6

    Bought this a few weeks before the ios6 update only to find it no longer works with the update. No fix or explanation from Apple. Very disappointed and annoyed.

    Does not play iTunes movies - rubbish!!

    • Written by from oxford

    The cable allows you to mirror iPad is play but does not play any movies rented or purchased on iTunes because they are hdcp protected. I have 2 hd tvs, plasma and led, both less than 2 years old, both do not support hdcp. Apple suggest that the solution is to buy a new tv. Very nice :-(

    Doesn't do what it says on the tin.

    • Written by from Beckenham

    Bought this today with the intention to hook my iPad2 up to my hd tv, unfortunately most of my apps do not display on the tv when all is connected - including love film instant, sky go, 4OD amongst others.

    Apple you shouldn't really say..... "Put your slides, films, photos and everything else that fills your iPad or iPhone 4S screen on an even bigger screen — your HDTV. The Apple Digital AV Adapter mirrors exactly what you see on iPad or iPhone 4S so that everyone in the room can enjoy it on your widescreen TV, video projection screen or other HDMI-compatible display.* The Apple Digital AV Adapter also supports video out for iPad, iPhone 4 or iPod touch (4th generation)."

    Also when I connected my iphone4 only YouTube displayed properly. Would recommend giving this one a miss!

    Does not work with IOS 6

    • Written by from Newcastle upon Tyne

    I was enjoying this product but since updating my IPad 2 to IOS6 from IOS 5 it no longer works. An on screen message says ' this device is unsupported'. Apple please fix this, it cost a lot of money to purchase and is now useless.

    Good but only for full HD tv

    • Written by from Belfast

    Bought this so I could watch my films etc on a proper tv, and whilst it will work on my full HD 22" bedroom tv (and it's really good), it won't work on my older bigger HD READY tv in the living room, because it won't let me change the resolution that the films play in. But, it works when I hook it up to the iPhone 4. I had this problem with my Bluray DVD player but could change the resolution. Ah well, will just need to keep that in mind when I change the tv!

    It works with iOS 6.0.1

    • Written by from Inverness

    After reading reviews saying it does not work with iOS 6 I was convinced not to buy it but after talking to someone at an Apple Store I can indeed confirm it does work with iOS 6.0.1

    I've tested it and the video and audio work just fine (only video content however will be displayed full screen)

    It works!

    • Written by from London

    Several reviews said that this cable wouldn't work with iOs 6 on iPad, so I was hesitant to buy this adapter. I received it this morning and it works fine (in conjunction with an HDMI-to-HDMI cable).

    I've tried it simply mirroring my iPad (e.g. with games) which works fine, but leaves a black border on the TV screen. I also tried playing videos and film and this works perfectly, using the whole TV screen with no black border.

    I hope this is reassuring to people (like me) who are not sure whether it works or not.

    OEM AV Adapter with HDMI and Charger

    • Written by from Boring

    I purchased the adapter for my 2 week old iPad 3. I always plug in all devices prior to powering them up which I did connecting the iPad to my Panasonic Plasma tv. Powered the tv then the ipad and got the message that this device is not compatible with the ipad. I tried every hdmi port on my tv and still the same results. I was using the same port that my laptop connects to, knowing that the laptop always works. Against my knowledge I left both iPad and TV powered up, then unplugged the av adapter from the iPad and plugged it in again, this did the trick and I am certain that I had it plugged in the iPad with all other attemps. Hope this may help someone.

    Does not work on SkyTV

    In the UK it works on TVCatchup but there is no picture on SkySports, just audio - no video. Is this a Sky lockout - or what?

    Not Working With iOS 8

    • Written by from Sheffield

    Ever since upgrading from iOS 7 to iOS 8 on the iPad 3, this adaptor hasn't been working properly. There is sound but no picture on the TV. But plugging this adaptor into an iPhone 4S running on iOS 6 then it works perfectly.

    Disappointed that it would not work on samsung plasma hd tv, just comes up with 'not compatible' on the screen although it does send the sound through.

    Works well on cheaper lcd tv but as the samsung is our main tv not too pleased.

    Check with apple on compatiblilty before buying.
