You can play any interesting games on iPhone, but sometimes playing on the bigger screen is more fun. iPhone and iPad come with the Screen Mirroring app.
The app allows you to mirror the iOS device to a computer or Apple TV, which has a bigger screen. Here, we are going to show you how to mirror the iPhone screen to Mac. After that, you will be able to play iPhone games, watch videos, do a business presentation, etc.
How To Mirror iPhone Screen To Mac With Ease
Method 1: Using Quick Player
This is the easiest method to mirror the iPhone screen to Mac, but it’s not wireless. You need a lightning cable that comes with your iPhone. When connecting the phone to the computer, the Photos and iTunes are automatically launched. You can close those apps and continue the process.
Launch the Quick Player on your Mac. If you don’t have any idea where the app is located, you can use Spotlight to find it. Click the magnifying glass icon on the upper-left menu bar of your Mac or click Command and Space keys to launch Spotlight. Type “Quick Player” and double click the app.
Once the Quick Player is launched, click File on the upper-right menu bar and select New Movie Recording. It will open your Mac camera and a pane will appear on your computer.
On the “New Movie Recording” pane, you will see a small red button and the drop-down arrow on its side. Click on the arrow and you should find your iPhone name on the drop-down list. Select your iPhone name under Camera and Microphone. So, there you have it. Now, you use it to do a real-time presentation, play iPhone games, or watch movies on the bigger screen.
The other advantage of using Quick Player to mirror the iPhone screen to Mac is that you can also record it. To do this, you can just click the small red button on the pane and it will start recording.
Method 2: Using A Third-Party App
Download and install third-party screen mirroring apps, such as Reflector, AirServer, and X-Mirage on your Mac. Unfortunately, you may have to pay a certain amount of money to buy the service. Some of the apps offer a trial version for free, so you can try it before deciding to purchase it.
To mirror the iPhone screen to Mac, make sure you have a reliable Internet connection. Now, connect both devices to the same WiFi network.
Launch the third-party screen mirroring app on your Mac. Then, launch the Control Center on your iPhone and tap on the “Screen Mirroring” option. Toggle the Mirroring option under your Mac’s name from the list. Now, your iPhone screen will appear on your Mac.
