Mirror iPad/iPhone to TV with Chromecast
If you do not have an Apple TV but still wish to mirror iPad/iPhone screen to TV, you can opt to use Chromecast. It is a device that is designed to broadcast content from iPhones and iPads directly to your TV so that you can watch a movie or a show, play games or present a picture album.
Here is how to mirror iPad to TV:
- Plug in the Chromecast device into your TV, power it up and turn on your TV. Switch to the appropriate HDMI input setting.
- Download the Chromecast app onto you iPad or iPhone.
- Launch the Chromecast app—it should have located and connected to your iPad or iPhone automatically. Complete the setup—rename the device (optional) and select which WiFi network you want to be connected to. Make sure that both your iPad or iPhone and Chromecast are connected to the same network.
- To cast Chromcast-supported apps (Netflix, YouTube, Photo Cast etc.), launch the app and click on the Chromecast icon located on the right-hand corner of the app and select the Chromecast option.
