Do you want to connect your iPhone 5, 6 or 7 to your TV – just because?
In today’s video, I’m going to show you how.
Why connect your iPhone to TV?
I love to use my iPhone when recording YouTube videos. But when I record using the back camera, I can’t see myself. This is where the Lightning digital adapter comes in.
I use it to connect my iPhone to the TV so I can see myself while recording. This makes the process a lot simpler than setting up a mirror on the front side of your phone just so you can see yourself.
Before anything else, you’re going to need the following:
From iPhone to TV
- Turn on your TV and select HDMI as your input
- Plug one end of your HDMI into the HDMI port you chose in 1 (if you have multiple ports)
- Plug the other end of your HDMI into the Lightning Digital AV Adapter
- Plug the adapter into your phone
And voila – you can see your phone screen on your TV! If your battery is running low, there’s a port on the adapter itself that will allow you to connect it to a power source.
Simple, right? It’s a cost-efficient workaround if you don’t have a DSLR yet or a video monitor. So are you going to try it? Let me know in the comments below.
