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:

  1. Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter, and
  2. HDMI Cable


From iPhone to TV

  1. Turn on your TV and select HDMI as your input
  2. Plug one end of your HDMI into the HDMI port you chose in 1 (if you have multiple ports)
  3. Plug the other end of your HDMI into the Lightning Digital AV Adapter
  4. 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.
