With Apple's Digital AV Adapter accessory, you can transform your iPad from a simple tablet to a video player. You plug the adapter directly from your iPad into a VGA or HDMI cable connected to your computer, and your iPad will automatically connect to the computer and mirror its display. When you play videos or perform any actions on the iPad, you will see it reflected on the computer display.

Step 1

Plug the male end of the adapter into your iPad.

Step 2

Plug the VGA or HDMI cable from the computer into the other end of the cable.

Step 3

Perform anything on your iPad, and you will see it reflected on the computer monitor.
