Put your slides, movies, 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).
