How to screen mirror iPhone to the projector
Screen mirroring iPhone to the projector can be done for many reasons. You might want to view a movie, show, or go through an official presentation.
You can connect your iPhone to a projector via Wi-Fi or an adaptor cable. Let’s now see how to mirror the screen from iPhone to projector.
An adaptor cable connects iPhone to Projector
This is the simplest and most convenient method to connect your iPhone to Projector. An adaptor cable is all you need to connect the two devices.
Many projectors include a video cable to allow them to connect to random peripherals and devices, such as smartphones, laptops, and other mobile devices.
An iPhone does not come with a video port. To connect the iPhone to the projector, you might need one of the adaptors listed below.
Lightning-to-VGA adaptor: This allows you to connect your iPhone’s lightning port with a standard VGA cable that is plugged into the projector.
Lightning Digital AV adaptor. This adaptor allows you to connect your iPhone to the HDMI cable. You can find it on Amazon.
Before you begin the connection process, make sure that your projector and iPhone are compatible with both the cables. This is the easiest way to connect if you’re new to the process. The VGA port can be found on the projector by using a thick 30 pin cable with screws on each end.
HDMI cable is a thin, plugged cable that is used for HDTVs. If you are unsure about how the cable works, ask a technician for help or refer to the manual that came with your projector.
Once you have found the cables, follow these steps to screen mirror the iPhone to the projector.
