    Yes, the Apple Lightning connector passes audio in digital format through any official Lightning cable. For instance, I use a Lightning cable to pass a digital audio signal from my iPhone 5 to my Sony PHA-1 external portable DAC/Headphone AMP combo and it sounds amazing!

  • The Lightning port does support audio. However, VGA does NOT.
    You will not get audio out via a VGA adapter and cable.
