The iPhone’s screen mirroring feature enables you to seamlessly display content from your phone on Apple TV, Smart TV compatible with AirPlay or a Mac computer screen. This is ideal for showing photos or videos to friends and family, giving presentations at work, or viewing movies on a larger screen. This guide teaches users how to seamlessly mirror iPhone on multiple devices simultaneously – perfect for students, professionals and content creators.
Apple’s AirPlay protocol offers the easiest method for mirroring an iPhone screen. By activating AirPlay on both sides, you can stream everything directly onto a TV screen or just video and audio within certain applications. Once enabled on either end (TV or receiver device such as computer), launch Control Center on an iPhone X or later model with Home button swipe down, tap “Screen Mirroring,” choose your TV from available devices, enter its AirPlay code when asked, and finally tap “Mirror.”
Note that most receivers only allow you to mirror one iPhone or iPad at a time; however, apps on a Mac or Windows PC may allow multiple iPhones or iPads to be screen mirrored onto a single display – for instance you could mirror two iPhones to one computer running Reflector app.
Once your presentation is over, simply disconnect your iPhone or iPad from the receiver device and close Reflector app before using your phone normally again.
If you are using a non-Apple TV, you can connect your device via HDMI, USB, or another cable. To do so, follow these steps:
On your iPhone or iPad, navigate to Settings, scroll down the page, tap “General,” select “AirPlay,” turn it on by flipping its switch, and follow on-screen instructions for selecting your TV screen.
Use a third-party app like LetsView’s free LetsView app to mirror your iPhone’s display onto a TV screen. Download both versions, follow on-screen instructions to pair devices, and you’re all set!
Remember, screen mirroring requires access to the same Wi-Fi network; thus ideally avoiding public networks if possible. Furthermore, consider enabling two-factor authentication on your Apple ID, reviewing permissions of apps granted screen-mirroring access, and regularly updating both device and app versions to patch any security holes that arise.
