The HDMI is the backronym for High Definition Multimedia Interface. HDMI cable is a proprietary audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed video data and compressed or uncompressed digital audio data from an HDMI-compliant source device, such as a display controller, to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device. The cable is a digital replacement for analogue video standards.

Contents of your iPhone and iPad can be view on your HDMI compatible TV by connecting both the iPhone, iPad and your TV with an Apple’s Digital AV Adapter through an HDMI cable to transfer both HD quality video and sound. There is a 30pin connector built into the AV adapter to let you charge and synchronize your device while it is connected to your HDMI compatible display.

Steps to connect your iPad and iPhone to your TV

– Connect the Apple Digital AV Adapter to your iPhone or iPad 30pin dock connector
– Connect one end of an HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the digital adapter, and the other end into an available HDMI port on your TV
– Switch your TV to the appropriate HDMI input and start enjoying your smartphone content on your TV.

According to our source, the earlier model such as the iPhone 4, the original iPad, or the 4th Generation iPod Touch will not have a mirrored display, but it will show Photos and Videos in supported apps once you start playing them on the device.

With most iOS devices, the best way to get content on your TV screen is with mirroring. This puts your entire iDevice’s display on the TV, giving you a big-screen view of everything happening on your phone. To do that, connect your iPhone or iPad to the same Wi-Fi network as your Apple TV. Then, swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen to launch the quick settings pane, tap AirPlay and select your Apple TV.
