    pass through only for power

    • Written by from Morden

    I bought this adapter so I could use it while developing an app that needed separate video output. It seemed perfect because it has the VGA output as well as a passthrough lightning plug so you can keep it attached to your computer for development/debugging as well.

    Unfortunately, it only passes through power, and does not show up as the original device you plugged in, so its useless to me.

    Dissapointing

    • Written by from Godmanchester

    I have just purchased this adapter from the apple store, i have to say that i am really dissapointed with it, i was assured both online by an "expert" and in the store that it would play movies for the iTunes Store, but it doesn't. please do bear this in mind if you are looking for one to connect to a home cinema projector!

    in conclusion not very good and apple should think about this, if i could, no stars would suffice.

    Great but can't play Apple iTunes purchased movies.

    • Written by from Flint

    Wanted to use this to send the Apple iTunes movies I purchased to a VGA projector, a Dell 2300MP.

    The iPhone connects flawlessly and will show each page of apps and the movies I have made. But when it comes to movies I purchased from Apple iTunes, I get "THE CONNECTED DISPLAY IS NOT AUTHORIZED TO PLAY PROTECTED MOVIES."

    Don't know if it is the age of the projector, or the lack of a chip. I did notice that these movies were streaming from the cloud.

    It would be nice if they had mentioned that in the description.

    Perfect for the Classroom

    • Written by from Port Matilda

    I use this adapter to project apps from my iPad air to the projector in my 4th grade classroom and it works beautifully. I also plug in a portable speaker for sound. It works on all apps, but will not project iTunes content. This is disappointing, but does not take away from its effectiveness in the classroom. It is expensive, but for how much I use it, it will worth the price.

    Cuts off right hand side of screen

    • Written by from Fair Oaks

    I tried this adapter for the first time last night with a Dell projector and my iPad. I was disappointed that Netflix is the only streaming app that supports such a device. Amazon needs to update their app and I am really disappointed in Apple that they will not allow movies to be used with this device. I did notice that when the home screen is viewed or when trying to view a powerpoint from Slideshark, the right hand side of the screen is cut off. I will have to check blogs for a fix to this. Works well with Netflix, but I might have to stick with my laptop for PowerPoint. I also bought the HDMI adapter and it works great on my TV with Slideshark. I will try movies next.

    VGA adapter a disappointment

    • Written by from Sacramento

    Very disappointing. Purchased to play movies on my iPad mini though TV while traveling. Trouble is, it works on some TVs, but only plays audio on others -- even identical TVs.

    Doesn't output audio

    • Written by from Chandler

    This product mirrors anything on your retina displayed ipod/ipad device; however, it does not output audio. You'll have to use the headphone jack to export the audio to an external speaker system. The Lightening AV Adapter mirrors video and audio from your retina display ipod/ipad device via HDMI cable. If your television or projector has HDMI, get the AV Adapter instead.
