Apple Adapter Cheat Sheet

Many Apple laptops are not equipped with VGA or HDMI ports, the most common connections used to interface to projectors. As a result, it is necessary to use a VGA or HDMI adapter, or "dongle," in order to connect Apple laptops, phones, and tablets to the VGA  or HDMI connections provided in DCS classrooms. Because there is no standard adapter, there is no one dongle that DCS can provide for use by instructors. Instructors using Macs will need to provide their own adapter to project.
