    How to cast Disney Plus from your iPhone to TV

    If you have one of the supported streaming gadgets (Fire Stick, Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV), you can use your iPhone to set up Disney Plus on the big screen.

    Platforms like Roku may require installations and settings via a smart device. Therefore, you can download the designated apps from the App Store to your iPhone and use them to configure the network and other options on the streaming device.

    If you want to cast the app using a streaming gadget like Chromecast, you need to stream Disney + from your iPhone and then use the “AirDrop” or “AirPlay” option to transfer the image to the TV display.



    Overall, the Disney + iPhone app has many benefits. Whenever you go on a long journey or know you won't have a stable network, you can download the content and watch it offline.

    Plus, the intuitive app lets you access recent movies and TV shows with just a few taps. Also, you can use your iOS device to cast the image to the big screen and watch your favorite content together with your loved ones.

    Can I install Disney Plus on a device with an older iOS version?

    If you have to rely on AirPlay with an old Apple TV, another possible obstacle is your iPhone or iPad. The Disney + app is compatible with all iOS devices capable of running iOS 11 or later. However, the app will not be available on any device running iOS 10 and earlier. This could be problematic if you have an old iOS device that is being used by a child to watch content. Currently, Disney has no plans to make the streaming app compatible with devices running iOS 10 or earlier.
