Apple's Lightning Digital AV Adapter is 50 bucks. That's expensive. Apple's Lightning Digital AV Adapter hooks up your iOS devices' Lightning port to HDMI. But it lags and gives artifacts. Apple's Lightning Digital AV adapter actually hides a tiny computer inside in the cable...wait what? Yes.
The Apple Store is now selling a shorter (0.5 m) lightning to USB cable. Price, unfortunately, has been left intact.
The new iPhone (and new iPads') cable connector has been about as controversial as a gadget cable connector can get. It's smaller, which is nice, but it's expensive and incompatible with everything. Which is why I love this little adapter.
