Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Well, if you are an Apple addict, most likely you will choose iPhone screen mirroring. Growing in popularity, iPhone screen mirroring is getting easier with each update, allowing users to use AirPlay to stream or share content from Apple devices to an Apple TV, AirPlay 2-compatible smart TV, or Mac. Not only that, but Apple fans can also use iPhone screen mirroring to stream video, share photos and mirror exactly what’s on your device’s home screen.

- Find the video that you want to stream.
- Tap AirPlay . In some apps, you might need to tap a different button first because some video apps may not support AirPlay. If you can’t use AirPlay with a video app, check the App Store on your Apple TV to see if an app is accessible. In the Photos app, you can share by selecting the icon that looks like an arrow coming out of the top of a square before tapping AirPlay.
