How To Connect iPad To Projector
Method 1: Connect Through an Adapter
This is the easiest and most commonly used method. The most important thing is to know the port of the projector you are connecting to.
You will need either a VGA or HDMI adapter that will connect your iPad to the projector.
A VGA and HDMI adapter is a very good tool to bring with you to work or school anyway.
Lucky for you, the internet is filled with VGA and HDMI adapters that are perfect for every model of iPad.
You can also check out the Apple store for available adapters.
Method 2: Connecting The Projector To Apple TV
I know you might get a little confused on how to make this method possible, but we’ll get into the steps one by one so you don’t miss anything.
Part 1: Connect Apple TV to Projector
The usual setup of an Apple TV is to connect it to a TV, of course. But in this case, we connect the Apple TV straight to the projector.
Connect the HDMI end of the projector to your Apple TV and make sure that both devices are plugged to the power source.
When you turn on the projector, it should display the Apple TV.
Part 2: iPad Airplay
The Airplay feature allows wireless streaming of one Apple device to another. It allows wireless transmission of content like music, movies, photos and videos.
Using this feature, we can do screen mirroring from the iPad straight to your Apple TV, which is now connected to a projector.
Step 1: Access iPad’s Control Center
Step 2: Tap ‘Airplay’
Step 3: Select ‘Apple TV’
This is a way to connect the iPad to the Apple TV.
Step 4: Turn Mirroring on
Turning on the mirroring feature is the last step so you can mirror your iPad to the Apple TV.
And just like that, your iPad will now be displayed on your projector.
This method involves more devices and steps to connect your iPad to the projector, but it works!
Regardless, you will still get the same results. And not to mention, the steps are very relatively easy. Even the technically challenged can accomplish it.
