Mini DisplayPort cables serve the same purpose as the regular DisplayPort audio-visual digital interface, presented in a miniaturised version. These cables are commonly supported by Apple computers and laptops, however they are beginning to be replaced by the USB-C port. Similarly to DisplayPort cables and VGA cables, MiniDP can be used to mirror or extend a computer screen onto a separate display, such as a projector, TV, or another laptop. These cables typically come in shorter lengths, from 15 to 20 cm. Both male and female plugs are available, with connections to HDMI, VGA, and DVI.
