Screen mirroring, also known as screen casting, is a great way to share content from your iPhone to your television. Whether you want to show the family photos you just took on vacation or watch a movie with your friends, it’s easy to do so by mirroring the display of your iOS device to a TV.
What to Know
Mirroring your iPhone to a television can be a great way to share photos and videos with friends. An adapter or HDMI cable is needed to mirror an iPhone onto a television using a wired connection, while wireless mirroring requires that both the iPhone and Smart TV be compatible with the “Mirroring” option in either Airplay 2 or Google Cast.
It is important to note that for older models of iPhones, you may need an additional MHL adapter in order to connect via cable. When using wireless mirroring, keep in mind the quality of connection will depend on how strong the local Wi-Fi network is. If your connection strength is low, it could cause stuttering playback of video or distortion in audio streaming from your phone device screen. Additionally, it is recommended that if you want to use a third-party app for mirroring your iPhone display, it should come from a reputable provider.
Easily display your iPhone screen on a TV through wireless mirroring
To achieve a wireless mirroring of your iPhone to a compatible smart TV, first off you’ll need to make sure that the two are compatible. To determine whether your TV is AirPlay 2-compatible, consult with the manufacturer. Here are the steps to follow for mirroring your iPhone once you have established compatibility. First off, make sure that both gadgets are connected to the same Wi-Fi network and powered on. To open Control Center on an iPhone, swipe downwards starting from the top right corner of the screen. Tap Screen Mirroring and select the name of your desired TV from the available devices list and follow any on-screen instructions for successfully connecting them wirelessly.
You can also use an Apple TV or Airplay device as a bridge between your smartphone and smart TV if they aren’t able to connect directly due to lack of compatibility issues. This will allow you to enable video streaming of content via apps like YouTube, Hulu, or Netflix without having any wires connecting them together while still being able to see your phone mirrored onto a larger display screen. With this type of setup, all you would have to do is select the AppleTV/Airplay device from within Control Center instead of selecting the actual name of it.
An app allows you to mirror your iPhone screen onto a TV
Using an app to mirror your iPhone to a TV is a great way to watch movies, photos, and other media from the comfort of your own home. Streaming devices such as Roku, Chromecast, and Amazon Fire enable easy projection of iPhone content onto television screens.
For instance, using the standard Roku app allows you to mirror your iPhone to the Roku device connected to your TV. Chromecast also works similarly with the Google Home App—once setup is complete you just need to select the Cast icon and destination (Chromecast) within any compatible platform.
Finally, if you want to use an Amazon Fire device as a platform, then you will need a separate screen mirroring app like AirScreen in order for it to work correctly. This app once downloaded on the Fire Stick will enable content from your iPhone such as movies and pictures onto a larger screen such as that of your TV. All these apps allow for quick connection and easy mirroring process wherever it is necessary. Therefore, many streaming platforms are available options when looking into mirroring an iPhone onto a bigger screen such as a television or projector set-up.
