What the Outcome of This Post Will Teach You
- How will you learn to connect iPad to a monitor to the TV screen or an affordable portable projector?
- How the connection of an iPad to the Apple TV is established and how this equipment will help you to grab your audience’s attention.
- Using Airplay to copy the iPad cover.
First, connect a tablet to a projector or television set. Use a port that is either HDMI or VGA and use the right cabling to connect to the suitable port. HDMI will give out better graphic quality compared to VGA, and this will affect videos and photos alike. However, the source content material is also crucial in determining the video quality. If you download an 800×400 quality video, don’t expect it to turn into a full HD video on your screen – if you want HD quality, download HD quality, this has nothing to do with the HDMI cable.
For old iPad models, use a dock connector to connect the iPad to the projector. For new models, use Lightning adapter cables. Make sure that you do ample research before you start purchasing your cables and adapters.
HDMI cables are essential if you need to have presentation with music. If you are not using an HDMI cable and are using a VGA cable instead, you need to connect your iPad using a mini jack. The mini jack will then be connected to an external audio system so that you can enjoy your music.
Now we will look at how Apple makes its devices to simply wireless.
One of the ways to go wireless on Apple is to use Airplay.
So what is this hype about Airplay? What is Airplay about?
One of the gadgets for Apple is the Apple TV – which goes hand in hand with Airplay.
There are two small things to remember before actually buying an Apple TV.
First, for a connection between the Apple TV to the iPad, you must have been in a Wi-Fi zone. No Wi-Fi, no connection.
Second, the Airplay on the iPad has got to be enabled. Go to settings and tap on enable.
How to Enable the Airplay on your Apple device
Swipe up to bring up the menu from the apple screen
Locate the icon that says Air Play, and double tap it.
Choose the Apple TV.
Select the Mirroring option.
Establishing the link between iPad and Apple TV to a Projector
If your projector has an HDMI port, quickly connect your HDMI cable from your iPad to your projector.
If you are using an older iPad model, you will need some sort of adapter to convert your HDMI to VGA. This converter might be tough to find, but with a little research, you will be able to obtain it from a local online electronics store as well as purchasing it online.
Creating a Wi-Fi Hotspot if there is No Wi-Fi
Sometimes you don’t have access to a WiFi spot or maybe the connection is shaky, you might want to consider your options. So what happens when you have no Wi-Fi and you still need to connect your iPad to your Apple Tv?
First, create a mobile hotspot using your phone’s mobile data. If you are worried about being overcharged, try setting a data limit on the mobile data. Make sure to turn off the hotspot later, as well as setting a password for your hotspot. After setting a password for your hotspot, try to connect it to the mobile network.
Create your own hotspot. Key in the password sets in your phone into the iPad.
Let’s go straight to the point. We need a Wi-Fi connection to enable Air Play on your iPad.
Without the Wi-Fi, there is no way that we can connect your iPad to the projector as Air Play requires internet connection. After obtaining Wi-Fi to connect both devices, you’re ready to go. Comes in handy when you need to do an office presentation and you need to use mobile data to go online. If the presentation goes smoothly, then congratulations! You need to give the boss an impression that you know how to use tech gadgets, and this will add to your portfolio in the skills section.
We need Wi-Fi to connect iPad to the projector. Knowledge on using AirPlay is also crucial. Not only that, we need to know when to use an adapter when necessary. This means that we need to have technical knowledge of the Apple devices before using it. If it’s an office, presentation, we just need to create a hotspot so that we can connect the Apple devices together. Always remember to back up your files in your iPhone if something goes wrong. Make sure that your service provider has service connections in the area that you need to open your Wi-Fi hotspot. Always remember to research if you face any difficulty in using Apple devices. Ask around the Apple shop for their feedback. The customer service is always happy to help you. Once again, thanks for reading. Drop by again soon!
