Screen mirroring allows you to project your iPhone’s screen onto any television screen for viewing videos, playing games and more. Apple AirPlay technology enables this capability for use with Samsung television sets as well.
To enable screen mirroring on an iPhone and a Samsung TV, both must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. On an iPhone, swipe down from the top of your screen or tap on “Control Center” or the Screen Mirroring card to access Screen Mirroring; select your Samsung TV from the list of devices and follow on-screen instructions until connecting – you may be asked for a passcode as part of this process.
If you don’t own an Apple TV or are connected to Wi-Fi, a Lightning-to-HDMI cable and adapter are still an effective way to mirror your iPhone to a Samsung TV. While this method might not be as convenient, it still works just as effectively; these items can usually be found for around $40 at stores and online.
Once your Samsung TV is powered on and set to HDMI input (you may also change this setting), connect one end of the Lightning cable directly to your iPhone; plug another end of it into an AV adapter attached to your television; plug both ends of that adapter into HDMI ports on both ends; your phone should start mirroring onto television automatically.
Once connected, all your content can be displayed on a Samsung TV screen – such as photos, videos, music and apps. With your iPhone you can even manage its settings and apps. However, please keep in mind that some applications may not support AirPlay due to app developers who choose to block its feature.
Many iPhone owners may find themselves struggling to turn off screen mirroring from their device. There are various methods available to them for doing this; simply tapping the red top bar that appears when screen mirroring is active is one way; alternatively, use Mirror for Samsung TV app as it will also do the job.
AirPlay is one of the easiest ways to screen mirror an iPhone to a Samsung TV, working wirelessly and effortlessly. This method offers seamless streaming video, games and movies directly onto a television screen. However, other methods allow only casting of photos or videos, but may cause extra steps or lag; third-party apps such as AirDroid or SmartCast Web may provide better results and lower resolutions may cause pixelation and blurring issues when selecting such third-party applications.
