It’s great to be able to watch videos on your device, but unless you have an iPad, it can get tiring watching TV shows or movies on a tiny screen. The good news is that you can play your videos through a TV. You’ll have to buy a special cable to do this, but they aren’t that expensive. Here are three cables you can use to connect your iOS device to your TV.
- Apple Composite AV Cable ($39): Lets you connect your iOS device to the composite inputs on a TV. The cable also has audio and USB connectors.
- Apple Component AV Cable ($39): Lets you connect your iOS device to the component inputs on a TV. The cable also has audio and USB connectors.
- Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter ($29, store.apple.com) lets you connect your iPad, iPhone 4, or iPod touch gen 4 to a TV monitor, projector, or LCD (monitors, etc. must have a VGA port).
