Thanks to the new Apple Lightning to USB 3 adapter its stupidly simple to get your iOS device connected to Ethernet.
This is extraordinarily useful when you are at a hotel with less then ideal wifi or even visiting an office that won’t share the wifi password.
All you need is:
- Apple Lightning to USB 3 adapter
- An iOS device running 9.3 or later
- An Apple USB to Ethernet adapter
- A Lightning Cable (For Charging)
- A USB charger
Since the USB to Ethernet adapter requires power it is necessary to use a power adapter otherwise you will get the dreaded “Not Enough Power” dialog box.
You can thank me the next time you are in a jam or at a conference where the wifi is, shall we say less then diserable.
