Hello Sir Apfelot! I like to use the Keynote software to prepare presentations. So far I have always connected my MacBook Pro to the projector with a mini-DVI adapter to VGA. A friend asked me, however, why I don't work with the iPad or my iPhone, since they also have Keynote. Is it possible to create presentations on the MacBook Pro and then play them back from the iPhone or iPad?
Yes, of course it is possible. The Keynote app runs smoothly on iOS - both on the iPad and on an iPhone. However, if you want to connect these devices to the projector with the VGA connection, you also need an adapter for this, but it does not cost the world. However, it now depends on which dock connection you have on your iOS device. If you still have the old 30-pin connector, then you would have to use this Dock-Connector-VGA-Adapter:
If you already have a device with a Lightning connector, there is also a Lightning-VGA adapter for you:
However, I have heard from a few places that the presentation of the presentation is sometimes a bit tricky. It can happen that the display does not rotate when you rotate the iPhone or iPad. It would certainly be advisable to test again whether everything works before a presentation. Otherwise everyone will complain about Apple again. ;-)
