Excited for the 10th anniversary of iPhone X? I bet many of you have already planned to wait in the endless lines outside Apple stores to buy this new model priced at $1,000. Given all the efforts you take, why not maximize the joy? Are you aware that an iPhone can easily connect to a mini projector, allowing you for mobile displaying with the most flexibility? Today, I would like to demonstrate two ways to connect an iPhone to a mini projector (I will use an M6 mini projector by AAXA Technologies for the demo, but most models in the market should work in the same way).
HDMI Cable + Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter
Due to iPhone’s always unique design, there is no AV Cable directly connecting a mini projector to an iPhone. But Apple created a particular Lightning Digital AV Adapter (Retail Price $49) to enable the mirroring of an iPhone (also iPad or iPod) screen to an HDMI-equipped TV, display, projector, or other compatible display in up to 1080p HD. It can also output video contents – movies, TV shows, and captured videos – to those big screens in up to 1080pHD. The AAXA M6 Mini projector doesn’t come with an HDMI cable in the box, but you can easily find one on Amazon or at any electronics store. After connecting the HDMI port (VIDEO IN) of the projector to an iPhone through the cable and the adapter and choosing “DIGITAL INPUT” on the Main Menu of M6, you can start enjoying the large screen projections for you iPhone.
Lightning Presentation Cable
AAXA Technologies also offers a Lightning Presentation Cable (Retail Price: $27.99) to make it easier. This Lightning to HDMI Cable is capable of mirroring 1080p HD videos from an iPhone (as well as iPad) to the M6 mini projector. With this accessory, you can give Keynote presentations, show picture slideshows, and watch short video clips from an iPhone on up to a 150-inch screen without cords. To use this cable, just plug it in the Lightning port side to an iPhone or iPad, the HDMI side to the AAXA M6 mini projector and the USB port to an iPhone charger or the USB port on the projector.
