How to screen mirror iPhone to Samsung TV

Screen mirroring, which allows you to project material from one device’s screen to another, is a standard function on most modern technology. Screen mirroring is known by various names, but on Apple devices, it is known as AirPlay.

Though AirPlay is an Apple feature, it has been considerably easier to connect across device ecosystems since the release of AirPlay 2 in 2018. Whether you have a Samsung Smart TV from 2018 or later, you should be able to utilise AirPlay; check this list to verify if your model is included. If your Samsung TV doesn’t support AirPlay 2 or you prefer a connected connection, you can still mirror your screen with a lightning-to-HDMI converter.

You can use AirPlay on your iPhone in two ways: from the Control Center, pick “Screen Mirroring” to mirror your whole iPhone screen, or from within selected apps, click the AirPlay symbol to cast content from your iPhone to your TV. Alternatively, you may achieve the same effect by connecting your iPhone to your Samsung TV through an HDMI connection. This is how to do it.

On a Samsung TV, how do you switch on AirPlay?

Before you can utilise screen mirroring or AirPlay on your Samsung TV, make sure the feature is turned on.

  • Select “General” from the “Settings” menu on your TV remote.
  • From the menu, select “Apple AirPlay Settings.”
  • Turn on “AirPlay” by selecting it and pressing the “On” button.

How to use the Control Center to reflect your full iPhone screen

  • To access the Control Center, swipe down from the top-right corner of your iPhone’s screen. Swiping up from the bottom of the screen on earlier iPhone models with a home button brings up the Control Center.
  • Next to an icon of two overlapping rectangles, tap “Screen Mirroring.”
  • Choose your Samsung TV from the available options.
  • If your Samsung TV prompts you for a passcode, type it into the pop-up on your iPhone.
  • The whole screen of your iPhone should now appear on your Samsung TV. When you play a video on your iPhone, your television should immediately switch to full-screen mode.

What is the best way to AirPlay content from within apps?

Some major media services, such as Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, and Hulu, offer an AirPlay option right in their applications if you don’t want to mirror your full phone screen to your TV. Unfortunately, Netflix’s in-app AirPlay feature is no longer available.

AirPlay is also available in several built-in iPhone apps, such as the Photos app, which may be found in the “Share” menu.

  • Open the app and pick the material you wish to play after making sure your phone and TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Tap the AirPlay button, which is generally at the top-right or top-left corner of the screen and is a rectangle with a triangle under it. If you’re using the Photos app to AirPlay, touch the “Share” button, then “AirPlay.”
  • From the list of available devices, select the name of your Samsung TV.
  • If your Samsung TV prompts you for a passcode, type it into the pop-up on your iPhone.
  • After that, your photo or movie should start mirroring on your Samsung TV.
