Advice on Apple converters

Macbooks, iMacs, iPhones and iPads nowadays usually have the same ports. Devices become thinner and more sleek and you no longer have to fuss with different connectors and cables. To connect equipment with a different connector to my Apple product, I use a cable converter. In this article, you can read which cable converters are available and what I use them for.

To expand my workplace, I connect an external monitor to my MacBook via a cable converter. For example, I use a USB-C to HDMI converter to watch a series via my MacBook on my HDMI TV. To connect my mouse and keyboard with a USB-A connector, I use a USB-C to USB-A converter. For a wired internet connection on my Macbook without its own network port, I connect a converter with a Gigabit ethernet port.

iPhone and iPad converters

With the lightning port of my Apple iPhone, I can connect an external display in addition to synchronizing and charging. For an HDMI screen, for example, I need a lightning to HDMI converter. In addition, there are also converters that convert the lightning port to an SD card reader. For example, I can quickly transfer photos and videos from my camera to my iPhone. For iPhones without a 3.5mm jack port, there are lightning to 3.5mm jack converters. This way, I can just use my familiar earbuds to listen to music via my iPhone.
