There is a known issue with some third-party, non-Apple manufactured adapters, causing the Output screen to mirror the iPad screen as if you were in TrialPad’s War Room Mode, or not recognizing or connecting to an output device. The solution to this issue is to only use genuine Apple adapters.
For an iPad with a Lightning port you would need one of these two adapters:
- For a VGA connection use the Lightning to VGA Adapter (https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MD825AM/A/lightning-to-vga-adapter).
- For an HDMI connection use the Lightning Digital AV Adapter (https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MD826AM/A/lightning-digital-av-adapter).
For an iPad with a USB-C port you would need one of these two adapters:
- For a VGA connection use the USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter (https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MJ1L2AM/A/usb-c-vga-multiport-adapter).
- For an HDMI connection use the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter (https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MJ1K2AM/A/usb-c-digital-av-multiport-adapter).
