  • The setup is a no brainer. Connect one end of the HDMI to your TV and the other into the adapter.

To prevent your phone’s battery from being usurped on time, you can connect the adapter’s second lightning port to a charger and the power supply.
  • While this works well with most apps (they appear identically in the TV), some others like Netflix and Amazon Prime present playback control issues even as the video is playing on the television. And other applications like Hulu even allow you to navigate several catalogs as the video plays.
  • If you are an iOS user possessing the older devices, there is also a way out; there is a 30-pin-to-HDMI adapter, although they are bit outdated and are very rarely found on the Apple store. You can get it through some retail shops though, like Amazon, at about $40.
  • You can also get a $39 Composite AV cable from Apple with which you can connect to any standard-definition TV; note however that this is only compatible with old iOS devices that have a 30-pin connector. You should be aware that some users had reported that when they connected the cable with the lightning-to-30-pin adapter, only audio features were supported.
