    I know that Apple sells a component cable to allow you to play audio and video from the iPhone on outside devices, but, like Steve Jobs, I need to be able to project iPhone screens on a projector to an audience.

    I would like to find someone who can modify an iPhone to make it output to a VGA-capable projector. Let me know if you can do it, or know of someone who might be able to perform such a task.

    Thanks! :)

    My projector has VGA, Component, and composite inputs, and it's at least 3-4 years old.... I plug in my iPhone through the composite.

    Apple makes a cable for both component and composite output; does your projector have neither of these inputs?

    I know that Apple makes video output cables for the iPhone to connect it to projectors but you should know that it *only* works for outputting audio and video (iPod). I *does not* work for showing apps, interacting with the GUI or anything else.

    I have spoken to a number of app developers and all of them acknowledge that there is no existing solution.

    You could have made it a little clearer in your initial post that you meant video out for 3rd party applications.... :p

    Here is one of several threads about the developments in this area. Lets hope Erica will keep working on it....

    Hm, only works in horizontal mode, that won't do. I need to be able to show apps and GUIs in vertical mode primarily. :(
