How to Cast Your iPhone to a Fire TV Device

Easy Casting: iPhone to Fire TV

Today’s topic of attention is dedicated to every Apple enthusiast desiring to know how to cast your iPhone directly to your Fire Stick, Fire Cube, or Fire TV device because the usual mirroring feature doesn’t quite cut it for iOS users. 📱➡️📺


Start the Journey to Easy Mirroring

For most devices, mirroring is just a quick sequence away. This holds true especially for Android users who are merely a home button press on their Fire Stick remote from opening the mirroring option. 🎮➡️🔍 However, if you’re an iPhone user, there’s one additional step that needs to be taken.


Begin with the AirPlay App

So, our first order of business is to head to the App Store on your Fire TV device. After you’ve landed on the App Store, search for ‘AirPlay’. Once you’ve found the app called AirPlay, install it. It will appear on your screen as ‘AirScreen’ following the installation.


Navigate Through AirScreen

Launch the AirScreen app and you’ll be greeted with an introduction screen. Press ‘Continue’ and then ‘Confirm’. This will provide the app with internet access. You’ll now be presented with a QR code. Open the camera app on your iPhone and scan this QR code. Clicking on the link that pops up will open a new screen on your TV which will show AirScreen. Here, pick the option that says ‘Entire Screen’. 📲🔍


Start the Mirroring Process

Now comes the moment of magic! Take your iPhone and swipe down from the top right corner to access the Control Center. Here, click on the icon signifying screen mirroring. This should display your TV as an available device for mirroring. Going ahead and selecting the TV will initiate the mirroring process. It might take a few seconds, but you should suddenly find your iPhone screen reflected on your TV screen.🎬


Options Galore with AirScreen

Once the mirroring is established, you’ll find a handful of useful features available. You can screen record on the TV, force rotate your screen, and even set up audio recording. If you’re watching a video and hold your phone in landscape mode, it will automatically switch and fill up your TV screen.⏯🔄🔊. For better quality, you can adjust the video quality in settings, with 1080P being the highest resolution available.

Conclusion: 🏁

And there you have it folks, a quick, easy, and efficient way to cast your iPhone screen directly to your Fire TV device, thanks to the AirScreen app. The free version of the app works perfectly, making mirroring a breeze. Now, you can comfortably stream your iPhone content on a larger screen. Enjoy your newfound streaming freedom! 🎉
