iPad Mini Retina 2048x1536 7.9" LCD Adapter Cable


This adapter cable allows connecting 7.9" 2048x1536 "retina" iPad Mini 2/3 (see below for compatibility) LCD panels to 51-pin style DisplayPort/HDMI adapter boards from this shop. New since 2023/10 is a longer shape which allows folding controller board behind the 7.9" panel neatly. Please see related photos on the bottom of the product listing. Also, new cable 51-pin end is a bit thick, so it may need some force to insert into the connector - make sure the gold pins are sticking out at most 1mm from the connector edge.

This does NOT include the adapter board (see other items in this shop for that).

Product is in stock. Now with new and improved folding shape.


  • Connect 34-pin iPad Mini 7.9" LCD to 51-pin iPad 3/4 connector.
  • For raspberrypi use, special settings need to be added in config.txt. Contact the shop about these details.

Compatible Video Cards

  • WARNING: 7.9" panels WILL NOT WORK with onboard Intel graphics, when connected to DisplayPort adapter, regardless of operating system. Do NOT buy if intend to use with Intel Graphics. IF anyone from Intel wants to figure out what the problem is, I will gladly send a board. It DOES work when used with HDMI adapter board.
  • Everything else: OK

Compatible Panels

  • Panels for iPad Mini Retina A1489 or A1490
  • LG LP079QX1-SPxx (xx can be any number)
  • Most likely any 7.9" panel with 34-pin 0.4mm pitch connector
