Lightning To VGA, Lightning To HDMI & New 12W USB Charger Hit The Apple Store

Apple has released three new accessories in its online store following yesterday’s iPad Mini launch event i.e a Lightning to VGA adapter, a Lightning Digital AV (HDMI) adapter and a new 12W USB power adapter, as pointed out by The Verge.

Lightning to VGA Adapter

The Lightning to VGA Adapter ($49 on Apple Store) connects to your iPad with Retina display, iPad mini, iPhone 5, or iPod touch (5th generation) via the Lightning connector and to your projector or display using the VGA adapter. You can watch video on the big screen in up to 1080p by connecting your device with a Lightning connector to a television, projector, or other VGA-compatible display. Video out supports up to 1080p for iPad mini, iPad with Retina display, iPhone 5, and iPod touch (5th generation).

Lightning Digital AV Adapter

The Lightning Digital AV Adapter ($49 on Apple Store) connects to your iPad with Retina display, iPad mini, iPhone 5, or iPod touch (5th generation) via the Lightning connector and to your projector or HDMI-equipped TV using the digital AV adapter. You can use the AV Adapter to mirror whatever is on your device’s display including apps, presentations, websites, slideshows, and more, on TV, display, projector, or other compatible display in up to 720p HD. Video mirroring is supported on all compatible devices.

Apple 12W USB Power Adapter

The 4th generation iPad with Retina display includes a 12W USB Power Adapter for charging directly through an electrical outlet. Now you can purchase this additional adapter ($19 on Apple Store) that brings a slight boost in voltage, now supplying 12 watts compared to the previous 10. It should help restore the battery of 3rd/4th generation iPad with Retina display to full capacity a bit faster.

    Will the 12W charger actually charge an iPhone faster than the 10W iPad charger? I’m assuming the max wattage will top out at a certain predetermined level by the phones circuitry
