Does it output the audio also?

HDMI normally carries both audio and video. If you have a movie on your iPhone 5, will this device (with an HDMI cable) output both audio and video to your HDTV?

    Yes, HDMI carries both audio and video.

  • Yes.

  • yes. HDMI outputs audio along with high definition audio.

  • As it is HDMI, I would expect it to output at least stereo audio over HDMI. The HDMI adapters have historically done this with both the 30-pin dock connector and the Mini-DP to HDMI adapter for the MacBook Pro.

  • Yes

  • I'm 99% that it will just like the previous 30-pin to HDMI adapter did. Funny how the description doesn't specify this -- they should add that little tid bit.

  • The "AV" in Digital AV Adapter stands for Audio / Video, so I think we can conclude that it will. Only way to know for sure at this moment is to ask Apple what is the official answer?

  • That is the way the old HDMI connector worked and I can be about 99% sure this one does the same thing. Audio and video both output. You can actually even play surround sound though your iphone if its AC3
