Hi, I'm Skylar. Let's say, you want to run a presentation from your iPhone. And to do so, you want to connect it to a projector. Well, first thing we want to do is determine which connector your iPhone uses, that is dock connector. So, it could Lightning, if you have an iPhone 5, 5S or 5C, or it could be the 30 pin dock connector for any version of the iPhone prior to 5. So, that narrows it down a lot. And if we go to the Apple website, it allows us to find the products that we want. So, let's say, I have an iPhone 4S and I want to connect to a VGA projector. An older style that has kind of a trapezoidal shaped connector, it looks like this. so, if the projector you want to connect to uses a VGA connection, this is the adapter you want to choose. However, if the projector you're using has HDMI, that'll give you a better signal. So, you could get the 30 pin digital AV adapter, and that has an HDMI output. So, if you can, check with the person who controls projector, in order to figure out what inputs it accepts. Next, if you have an iPhone 5, 5S or 5C, or iPad Mini, iPad with retina display, anything with a Lightning Connector. You want to search for pretty much the same thing. So, it's the Lightning Digital AV Adapter and you can see here that it's HDMI and Lightning. There's also a Lightning to VGA Adapter. So, once you've narrowed down which connector your phone uses and which connector the projector uses, you can choose the right adapter and pick it up from Apple. Thanks for watching, I'm Skylar.
