How To Mirror Your iPhone Screen to TV

If you’re an iPhone user and want to enjoy your favorite content, such as images, movies, and applications, on a larger screen, there are several easy ways to achieve this. In this quick guide, we will explore how you can stream content from your iPhone directly to your large screen TV using Apple AirPlay technology.

One of the most convenient ways to mirror your iPhone screen to your TV is by using Apple AirPlay technology. This wireless streaming technology allows you to easily share your iPhone’s display with a compatible TV or Mac computer without the need for any additional software or equipment. AirPlay is built-in to the iPhone operating system, making it a simple and seamless process to set up.

To begin streaming content from your iPhone to your TV, ensure that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This is crucial for establishing a connection between the two devices. Next, swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone screen to open the Control Center. You will see an AirPlay icon located in the top right corner of the screen. Tap on this icon to display a list of available AirPlay devices.

Select the device you want to connect to from the list of available options. If your TV is a smart TV or has an Apple TV connected, it should appear on this list. If your TV doesn’t support AirPlay, you can use an Apple TV or third-party streaming device to enable AirPlay functionality. Once you’ve selected your TV or other AirPlay-enabled device, your iPhone screen should appear on the larger screen.

You can now browse through your iPhone’s content and play movies, view photos, or use applications as you normally would. The content will be displayed on your TV or other connected device in real-time. Additionally, you can use your iPhone as a remote control to pause, play, or navigate content on the larger screen.

In conclusion, streaming content from your iPhone to your TV using AirPlay is a quick and easy way to enjoy your favorite movies, photos, and applications on a larger screen. With this simple guide, you can start streaming in no time and enjoy the comfort of watching your favorite content on the big screen from the comfort of your couch.

Screen Mirroring

Screen Mirroring is a convenient way to display your iPhone or iOS device on a larger screen, such as your smart TV or PC. However, sometimes users may encounter issues while attempting to mirror their screens. If your device is not listed, it is important to ensure that it is connected to the same wireless network as your iPhone.

To begin screen mirroring, select the Airplay 2 supported device you want to mirror your iPhone screen to. If a pass code appears on your TV screen, enter it on your iOS device to make the connection semi-permanent. You only need to enter the passcode the first time you make the connection, and it will be remembered the next time you want to mirror the screen directly from your iPhone, iPad or Mac computer.

If the screen mirroring connection has worked correctly, you will now see a direct mirror image of your iPhone display on your large screen TV. To stop iOS mirroring, once again open the “Control Center” settings page as pictured above and tap then tap the “Stop Mirroring” button on your screen or you can also press the Menu button on your Apple TV remote control if that is more convenient.

You can also stream video directly from your iPhone, iPad or iPod, Samsung TV and other devices directly to your Apple TV from within iOS applications. While watching a video in an app, you will see a small rectangle with a triangle at the bottom in the bottom left-hand corner which looks similar to a TV screen. By tapping the button, you will be presented with a list of compatible Airplay devices on your wireless network capable of accepting your stream. Select one and you will see your content appear on your large TV screen or device and the logo will turn from white to blue. Note that not all applications support AirPlay, so check whether an application is compatible by visiting the application’s official Apple Store page for clarification.



If you use AirPlay and screen mirroring on your iPhone quite regularly, your phone might automatically stream video to your preferred Apple TV or AirPlay 2 compatible device automatically. If this is the case, you will see a blue connection icon in the top left corner on your iPhone screen. To terminate the connection, simply tap the icon again or select another device from the list to stream or screen mirror directly to that from your iPhone.

Airplay audio streaming can be set up on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 11.4 or later, Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD with tvOS 11.4 or later, HomePod with iOS 11.4 or later, Mac with either iTunes 12.8 or later or macOS Catalina and PCs with iTunes 12.8 or later installed on them. To stream video via Airplay, you will need one of the following devices: iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 12.3 or later or an Apple Mac running the macOS Mojave 10.14.5 operating system or later.

Devices you can stream to using the Airplay screen mirroring feature include Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD with tvOS 11.4 or later, HomePod with iOS 11.4 or later, speakers connected to the Audio Out port on AirPort Express 802.11n (2nd Generation) with the latest firmware update, as well as AirPlay 2 compatible smart TVs which feature the “Works with Apple AirPlay” certification. Smart TVs from LG, Samsung, Sony and VIZIO are included. For a complete and up to date list of supported TVs, visit the official Apple website.
