    imageApple's New Digital AV Adapter Brings HDMI Output To iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPad And iPod Touch 4G

    Apple announced two new accessories at yesterday’s iPad 2 media event: the first one was the Smart Cover for iPad 2 and the other one was Apple Digital AV Adapter.

    The Digital AV Adapter can be used for iPad 2’s video mirroring feature, which allows users to mirror slides, movies, photos or everything else that they see on the iPad 2 screen to a widescreen TV, video projection screen, or any HDTV compatible display.

      So what about air play? Going backwards again? Using cords? Nobody wants that! Make air play HD.

      Why not iPhone 3GS ? is it because its hardware doesn't allow it ??

      This one is very useful in my opinion

      Sometimes you gotta crawl before you walk. Video output is pretty heavy stuff for a portable device to just shoot off. Also, I'm guessing this is a power-drainer, since Apple's cord has a second connector to keep the iPad2 powered up.

      Last time I checked, TVs in hotel rooms didn't support AirPlay, so having HDMI output is very nice.

      as iphonehacks has mentioned, only the ipad 2 will be able to mirror its screen onto an hd tv. so playing games will only be supported on the ipad 2 using this cable. not to mention, the game will still be running on the ipad 2 while its being mirrored on the tv. when r they going to allow games to be played via airplay? i thought this wud have been supported by default when airplay was launched. i understand it will require high speeds of streaming (100+ Mbps) from the ios device to the hd tv since the response to inputs shud be instant and lag cannot be tolerated even for a millisecond. but thats the job of the wifi router and not the airplay technology. there are so many decent cost-effective routers that support N technology of data stream speeds 150+ Mbps. come on apple, games via airplay FTW!!

      pretty expensive, but it's good for streaming Netflix at your friends' house that don't have Netflix compatible plyer. You just bring this adapter with your iPad or iPhone...

      I'm curious if this means that you will be able to charge the iPad via a computers USB. I have the original iPad, and none of the USB ports will charge it, the battery icon even says not charging. This would be a great new feature if it's true, as you'll be able to charge your iPad 3 from almost any device with a working USB port, unlike the original.

      *iPad 2, not iPad 3. Hit the wrong key, sorry. I'm jumping to the next model already.

      Consumers asked for hdmi support. iPad competitors are touting hdmi support as an advantage. Apple answered.

      Older computers have usb ports that supply insufficient power to charge the ipad while it's in use. With your ipad plugged into your computer usb port, it'll still charge once you put the ipad to sleep. It stops charging when you wake the ipad.Try it next time and observe the battery percentage after about 30 minutes.Newer computers have high power usb ports and will charge the ipad just fine while it's in use. Mine does so just fine. The fastest charge is still the wall plug.

      This will never happen! I never understand why people come up with stupid ideas like this when the hardware is clearly not capable, this is on par with the idea of a 10" retina display! You have to remember most games are tweaked to he'll to get the best visual candy the iPad can deliver, there is no CPU left for rendering a second HD screen. Even something as powerful as a PS3 which has a remote feature doesn't work well with games if at all. And finally let me make it clear why we can't have a retina display on a 10" iPad. Apart from cost and technical complexities of manufacture the processor could not render to a screen 4x larger and manage 60fps. Sure Open GL's hardware acceleration would get you close but the majority of programs that don't use hardware acceleration would be pathetically slow. I should know, I've released a few iPad apps now.

      I really loved the smart coverAnd maybe this one will be the most affective to the buyers as me

      well mirroring ipod, ipad and iphone has been around for months on a JB device. this hdmi adapter is just an added bonus
    • FytaFyta Posts: 29

      Actually, mirrored output does not require rendering twice. Your screen is rendered to a video buffer. Then the contents of that video buffer are pushed to the display. A mirrored display just means routing the output to two locations. Has nothing to do with rendering twice.I can only assume that the HW for some reason doesn't have the capability to send the signal to two locations.

      Yeah I want to know as well. Is it because it don't has Retina Display?

      This is an excellent point. Mirroring has been available with JB for months (almost from the beginning). Why can't we do mirroring on the original iPad?

      Finally, a digital audio out for my iphone. I just got the adapter and it works great for playing music through my HDMI receiver. Much better than the headphone jack w/ rca adapter and cranking the iphone volume.

      Cable does not work on iPhone 4 only audio for video streaming apps. This is not what was advertised by the apple website.

      I have a 2011 Panny Plasma and it works fine. Anyways, on the touch you can only use supported apps. Try for example to use the official youtube app or use your ipod to play videos you bought from itunes or videos you shot with the camera. I don't know what is officially supported. MLB app works. But I got displayout from cydia now so it doesn't matter. everything works.
