    How to mirror iPhone screen to Mac and TV with or without AirPlay. Your iPhone has built-in screen mirroring features and options for external mirroring. You can mirror your iPhone screen to a TV or Mac computer in several ways.


    AirPlay is the easiest way to mirror an iPhone screen to Apple TV or Samsung TV. You can also use Roku, Chromecast, or a wired connection to mirror an iPhone to a TV or Mac.



    You can easily mirror your iPhone to a variety of larger screens, including one of the many stylish yet affordable TVs or your Mac computer. Here is a rundown of the most popular ways to mirror iPhone screen to Mac and TV.

    How to mirror iPhone screen to TV

    To mirror an iPhone's screen to a TV, you can use AirPlay, Roku, Chromecast, or a wired connection. 


    Connect your iPhone to a TV with an AV adapter

    To mirror iPhone screen to TV with a wired connection, you need an adapter cable that matches the input of your TV (or monitor). If you can, use an HDMI cable for crisp audio and video with low latency.

    You also need a Lightning to Digital AV Adapter. You can purchase the cable from Apple or opt for a third-party version - just make sure a third-party adapter includes “High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection”. Then connect the AV adapter to your iPhone's Lightning port and to your TV or monitor via the HDMI cable.

    Use AirPlay to mirror your iPhone to Apple TV or Samsung TV 

    If you have an Apple TV, you can wirelessly cast your iPhone screen to Apple TV using AirPlay.




    First, make sure your iPhone and Apple TV are on the same network. From there, you can enable “Screen Mirroring” from the iPhone control panel, accessible by swiping down from the top right corner of the iPhone screen (or from the bottom of the screen on older iPhones). 

    You can also use AirPlay to mirror your iPhone to a Samsung TV by following the same steps as long as the TV is compatible with “AirPlay 2”. 

    Mirror iPhone Screen to TV with Roku 

    An Apple TV is not required to mirror your iPhone screen wirelessly. There are a number of other options, including the Roku streaming device, which allows you to mirror your iPhone's screen to a TV using the Roku app.

    You can also cast content from your iPhone to TV using the Roku app. This is different from screen mirroring, so you will be limited to Roku supported content. 

    Finally, if you have a Roku model that supports the feature, you can also use Apple's AirPlay feature to cast content from your iPhone to a TV.

    What is Roku? How Roku Streaming Devices Work

    Screen mirroring iPhone alla TV utilizzando Chromecast 

    Although Chromecast is a streaming device from Apple's competitor Google, iPhone users can still cast from their iPhone to a Chromecast-enabled TV with the Google Home app.

    You can also mirror your iPhone screen to a Chromecast TV with a third party app like Chromecast Streamer. 


    How to mirror iPhone screen to Mac

    You can also mirror your iPhone screen to a Mac in several ways. You can wire a connection between your iPhone and Mac with a Lightning to USB cable, which allows you to mirror your iPhone's screen with the QuickTime app.


    AirPlay is another option for iPhone to Mac screen mirroring, but you'll also need to use a third-party app like Reflector.
