We noticed during the iPhone 5 launch that Apple had a big caveatwith its Lightning to 30-pin adapter: no video or iPod out support. Now that the new iPads are here with that same connector, the problem’s been partially rectified — for a sum. Namely, you can grab the Lightning to VGA or digital AV (HDMI) adapters for a rather princely $49, though there’s no sign of any iPod support yet. If you’re still holding out for generic models instead, you may want to rethink that plan, as there’s a control chip inside each, and so far only Apple holds the authentication keys. Also, a new $19 12W USB power adapter (which connects directly to the Lightning port) has also appeared for the 3rd and 4th generation iPads, bumping the previous version’s 10W — meaning your slate might get charged a bit quicker.
