How to screen mirror your iPhone to TV

Everyone has a smartphone these days.

We use it to take care of everything from reading, listening to music, socialising, bookkeeping, notetaking, alarm clocks and thousands of other jobs for us.

One of the most frequently used feature has to be video entertainment, such as watching videos on YouTube and other video platforms.

Based on research by Sandvine, YouTube accounts for 38% of all mobile traffic worldwide.

Despite the huge 6.5 inch on an iPhone XS, sometimes it’s still not enough to enjoy the full cinematic experience of the latest Marvel movie on the phone.

This is where you would want to have an AirPlay Screen Mirroring receiver handy in the house, so you can share the motion picture from your iPhone to a big screen near you.

Check out the video below for the best way to screen mirror your iPhone to an HDTV.

Before you can screen mirror from your iPhone to a TV, you need to make sure the HDTV can receive wireless media from your phone.

This is where a wireless display receiver, like EZCast, is most useful.
