What cable do I need to connect my iPad to an additional screen?

1. Use the cable that came with the monitor. (If the monitor has a USB-C port)

If you’re connecting your iPad to a Studio Display or Pro Display XDR, you can use the cable that comes with the monitor to connect to your iPad, as the included cable is a USB-C to USB-C Thunderbolt cable. You can transfer data and charge your iPad’s built-in battery.

If your TV or other type of display does not include a USB-C to USB-C cable, a Thunderbolt / USB 4 cable is required to connect the iPad to an external display for compatibility.

2. Use a USB-C cable that is a Thunderbolt / USB 4 cable (if the monitor does not have a USB-C port).

If your external monitor doesn’t have a USB-C port, it just has an HDMI or VGA port or some other port. You can plug an HDMI or VGA cable into an adapter or USB-C hub and plug it into your iPad, and plug the other end of the cable into a TV or display.

*The USB-C to USB-C cable included in the iPad box cannot be used to connect an additional screen. Transferring data from the iPad to an additional display requires a cable that supports data transfer, such as a Thunderbolt / USB 4 cable, because it can only be charged.

What additional screens support iPad connections?

You can use any monitor with a USB-C, HDMI, VGA, or other port to connect the iPad to the additional screen, but you’ll need a cable to transfer data. If the display has a USB-C port, it can be connected to the iPad. If the TV monitor only has an HDMI port or any other port, an adapter will be needed to connect to the iPad.

iPad-compatible displays currently sold by Apple include the Studio Display and Pro Display XDR.
