Following Apple’s media event yesterday afternoon, where the company’s all-new Lightning connector was introduced, The Verge confirmed with Apple that there are two new adapters on the way. According to the report, Apple will introduce Lightning to HDMI and Lightning to VGA adapters to compliment its new connector. Many were shocked to learn yesterday that the $29 Lightning to 30-pin adapter does not support video out, but you should be in the clear with the two adapters shown off this evening. On the bright side, the $29 adapter supports audio out. At any rate, we will be on the look out for when both adapters are officially available on Apple’s online store. They are not at the moment, but we suspect soon. [The Verge]
