How To Use Miracast To Stream IPhone Content To Your TV
If you’ve ever wanted to watch your iPhone content on a bigger screen, you’re in luck. Miracast is a technology that lets you stream content from your iPhone to a compatible TV or display. Here’s how to set it up.
1. Make sure your iPhone and TV are compatible
First things first: you’ll need to make sure that both your iPhone and TV are compatible with Miracast. On the iPhone side, Miracast streaming is supported on the iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7, and 7 Plus. As for TVs, most newer models from major manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Sony, and Vizio should support Miracast.
2. Connect your iPhone and TV
Once you’ve confirmed that both your iPhone and TV support Miracast, it’s time to connect the two devices. Start by putting your TV into screen mirroring mode. On most TVs, this can be done by opening the settings menu and selecting the “screen mirroring” option.
Once your TV is in screen mirroring mode, open the Control Center on your iPhone by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. Tap the “AirPlay” icon and then select your TV from the list of available devices.
3. Start streaming
Once your iPhone and TV are connected, anything you do on your iPhone will be mirrored on your TV. This includes apps, games, websites, and even the home screen.
One thing to keep in mind is that Miracast only streams content from your iPhone to your TV. Any audio that you’re playing will continue to come from your iPhone’s speakers. If you want the audio to come from your TV, you’ll need to connect your iPhone to your TV using a cable.
4. Disconnect when you’re done
When you’re finished streaming content from your iPhone to your TV, you can disconnect the two devices by opening the Control Center and tapping the “AirPlay” icon again. Then, select the “Disconnect” option.
If you’ve ever wanted to watch your iPhone content on a big screen, there’s good news: thanks to a technology called miracast, you can now easily stream iPhone content to your TV. Here’s how it works.
First, you’ll need to make sure that your TV supports miracast. Most new TVs do, but if you’re not sure, check your TV’s documentation or ask the manufacturer.
Once you’ve confirmed that your TV supports miracast, the next step is to connect your iPhone to the TV. You can do this wirelessly, using a miracast-compatible adapter, or you can connect your iPhone to the TV with a cable.
If you’re using an adapter, simply follow the instructions that come with the adapter to connect it to your TV. Once it’s connected, open the Control Center on your iPhone (by swiping up from the bottom of the screen), tap the “Screen Mirroring” icon, and select your TV from the list of devices.
If you’re using a cable, connect your iPhone to the TV with the appropriate cable (typically an HDMI cable). Once it’s connected, open the Photos app on your iPhone, select the video or photo you want to watch, and tap the “Share” icon. From the share menu, select “Send to TV.”
That’s all there is to it! With miracast, it’s easy to enjoy your iPhone content on the big screen.
