IOS Projection

Projecting from an iOS device is unfortunately more difficult than it should be. In addition to iOS software limitations, there is a hardware requirement of a special cable, and even the cable is specific to the type of iOS device in use.

  1. Order the correct VGA adapter cable for your iOS device from the Apple Store.
  2. Connect the VGA adapter to your iOS device and to the Projector.
  3. Select an app that supports Projection.

LIS Admin Notes

  • Not all apps can project. Apple has restricted video-out to the following limited list of standard apps: Videos, Photos (slideshow playback only), YouTube, Keynote, Safari (video content on webpages). Please understand that projection (ie. video-out) is software-dependent! It is up to iOS app developers to build video-out support into their third party apps.
  • If you need to project a web site, you may want to try the paid Atomic Web Browser app, which supports video-out. The Atomic Web Browser app is available from the App Store.
