The easiest way to connect an iPhone to a TV is with a cable. The problem is that Apple has never included such a cable in the box when you buy an iPhone. This can be frustrating, but there are reasons why Apple might have done this.
Apple has sold more than 1 billion iPhones since 2007. That’s a lot of cables! Instead of packing in every cable imaginable, Apple decided to let you choose which ones you want based on what features they offer and how much they cost.
The Lightning Digital AV Adapter was designed specifically for this purpose: to help you connect your iPhone or iPad to an external display using the Lightning port and HDMI. This adapter allows audio and video output simultaneously through its 3-in-1 design (HDMI, Lightning, power). It also supports volume control from either side of the adapter or from the TV itself.
The Lightning Digital AV Adapter comes in two versions: one for HDTVs and another for audio receivers or computer monitors with an HDMI input port.
