Screen mirroring allows you to display the contents of one device on another device, which is particularly useful when you want to view your mobile phone or laptop screen on a larger display, such as a TV or monitor. This can be done wirelessly or with a cable, depending on the devices and the technology used.
Wireless screen mirroring can be done using technology like Airplay, which is a built-in feature on iPhone that will allow you to stream audio and video content from another Apple device or Airplay-enabled devices. Samsung TVs are one of the devices which has a built-in Airplay 2 where you can connect your iPhone to your Samsung TV without needing a physical connection.
Connect iPhone to Samsung TV with Airplay
Here is a detailed guide for you to successfully connect your iPhone to your Samsung TV directly with the use of Airplay.
- Ensure that your iPhone and Samsung TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
- On your Samsung TV, go to “Settings” and then “General” and select “Apple AirPlay Settings.”
- Turn on “AirPlay” and enable “Require Code” if you want to set a password for the connection.
- On your iPhone, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the Control Center.
- Tap the “Screen Mirroring” icon, which looks like two rectangles with a triangle at the bottom.
- Select your Samsung TV from the list of available devices.
- If you set a password in Step 3, enter it on your iPhone.
- Your iPhone screen should now be mirrored on your Samsung TV.
Note that not all Samsung TV models support AirPlay, so make sure to check if your TV model is compatible before following the steps above.
