NewApple has not just left the start button, but has also switched from the company's lighting connector to the USB-C connector, which is more common. With that USB-C connection, you can use a wide range of accessories and peripherals with an iPad, including external monitors.
Apple talked about this during the announcement of the iPad Pro. The thing is that it is not as easy as it sounds as simple.
It's not a brand new feature
The ability to mirror your iPad screen on an external monitor is possible by HDMI adapter (30-pin or lightning) for years.
The new iPad Pro makes it easy to do, as we look forward to, thanks to its USB-C port. It allows you to work with monitors that have up to 5K resolution.
What you need to do
Not all USB-C connections are the same. For example, the iPad Pro does not support the Thunderbolt 3 display, even though the connector looks similar to the USB-C connector.
The iPad Pro uses display standard, but requires a high-speed cable to air in 5 or resolution. The Apple Belkin USB-C to the USB-C Cable or the Apple's Thunderbolt 3 USB-C indicates that the total performance is meant to be unlocked.
How to find out what's good and how confusing it is: LG UltraFine 4K Screen is compatible with USB-C connection and works with the iPad Pro without any additional adapters. On the other hand, LG's Ultrafine 5K Screen is based on Thunderbolt 3 and will not work with the iPad Pro.
Let me explain this and try to simplify it.
- If the monitor has a USB-C connection to a USB-C connection, you can potentially connect an iPad Pro with a monitor cable.
- For all other monitors, you will need the appropriate adapter (USB-C to HDMI, USB-C to DisplayPort, etc.).
- Some monitors can also power the iPad Pro, charge it as it is used.
- Some do not charge, so you'll need an adapter such as Apple's USB-C digital multipurpose adapter or your iPad will come out of the battery.
How apps behave
Most likely, connecting the iPad Pro to the monitor will only reflect your iPad's screen. What you see on the monitor you see on the iPad are Some apps can do more with a second screen.
While using iMovie, for example, you can either create an edit screen show on the monitor or you can choose to display the project output on the screen by selecting an external display button. In photos, the images are shown with a black background on the external monitor, and when the video is played it appears only on the monitor.
Other apps, such as Adobe's Lightroom, do not give an option to choose where you are shown. Instead, it always shows an edited photo on the external screen.
In the application Configuration There are some options if you have problems in the quality of the output displayed on the monitor or TV.
Open Settings> Display and Brightness And then select the screen that is currently connected. Once there, you can adjust the brightness of the external monitor and customize the output of the iPad Pro.
