How to View Your iPhone’s Screen on a TV: AirPlay or HDMI?

Published

on

When it comes to watching videos, movies, or TV shows on our iPhones, most of us would prefer to do so on a larger screen. But what if we don’t have a smart TV? Or what if we’re traveling and want to watch something on our hotel room’s TV? In this article, we’ll teach you two different ways to view your iPhone’s screen on a TV.

Connecting Wirelessly

If you have a Smart TV or streaming device that supports AirPlay, you’re in luck. Connecting wirelessly is by far the easiest way to view your iPhone’s screen on a TV. All you need is your iPhone and the Apple TV (or other compatible device). Here’s how to do it:

Make sure your TV supports AirPlay.

AirPlay is a technology developed by Apple that allows you to wirelessly stream audio and video from your iPhone to an AirPlay-compatible device. If you have a Smart TV or streaming device that supports AirPlay, you can easily connect your iPhone to the TV over Wi-Fi.

Connect your iPhone to the same Wi-Fi network as your TV.

Open the Control Center on your iPhone by swiping down from the top-right corner of the screen.

Tap the “Screen Mirroring” button.

It looks like a TV with waves coming out of it.

Select your TV from the list of available devices.

Open the Control Center on your iPhone

Swiping down from the top-right corner of the screen.

Tap the “Screen Mirroring” button. It looks like a TV with waves coming out of it.

Select your TV from the list of available devices.

Tap Screen Mirroring on the Control Center.

You should see the name of your TV appear in this menu. Tap it to begin mirroring your iPhone’s display on your TV.

Tap your TV or streaming device to connect.

If you have an Apple TV, it will show up in the AirPlay menu. Tap to connect and your iPhone’s screen will appear on your TV.

Using an Adapter

If your TV doesn’t support AirPlay, you can use a standard HDMI cable with an HDMI to Lightning adapter that plugs into your iPhone’s charging port.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a digital interface that transmits audio and video signals from one device to another. The HDMI to Lightning adapter is a physical connector that allows you to connect your iPhone to an HDTV or other HDMI-compatible device.

Get an adapter.

You’ll need an Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter to connect your iPhone to an HDTV or other HDMI-compatible device. The adapter plugs into the Lightning port on your iPhone and has an HDMI port that you can connect to an HDTV, projector, or other device.

Connect the HDMI adapter to your iPhone.

Once you have the adapter, simply plug it into the Lightning port on your iPhone.

Connect one end of the cable to the adapter and the other to a port on the TV.

Most TVs have multiple HDMI ports, so you’ll need to choose one to connect to. Once you’ve plugged the cable into both the adapter and the TV, your iPhone’s screen will appear on the TV.

Press the Input or Source button on the TV remote control and Select the HDMI.

This will allow you to cycle through the different input options on your TV until you find the one that’s displaying your iPhone’s screen.

Select HDMI 1 or 2 You should see your iPhone’s screen appear on the TV. If you don’t, make sure the HDMI cable is securely connected to both your iPhone and the TV.

So there you have it. Those are two different ways that you can view your iPhone’s screen on a TV. If you have a Smart TV or streaming device that supports AirPlay, we recommend using the wireless method. It’s much easier and doesn’t require any extra cables. But if you don’t have AirPlay, don’t worry. The cable method will still work just fine.
