Apple’s Lightning Output Leaps Backward in Quality

Peter Kirn, Create Digital Motion:

The results are disturbing. You still get reasonably flexible output options from the iPad and iPhone, and generally speaking, Apple’s devices are capable of some beautiful visuals. But the output adapters suffer when showing signals that are susceptible to overly-aggressive compression. And the new adapters are unmistakably a step backward, not forward, from what came before.

The culprit: Lightning Digital AV Adapter.
