There are numerous apps available, so try several until you find the right one for your Smart TV. The right app differs from one Smart TV brand to another, it’s all about finding the one that fits yours perfectly. 🔍📲👍


Setup the Screen Mirroring App

Once the app is installed, open it and follow the prompts. Once your iPhone begins the search for TVs, it will find your Smart TV. Upon locating your TV, a notification will appear on your TV screen – acknowledging the connection request by pressing ‘Yes.’ Just wait for a while as the connection is being established. Be patient, as it may take a few moments. ⌛💭👏


Begin Screen Mirroring

Ready to start mirroring? Press ‘Start Mirroring’ or ‘Mirror LG TV’ or other TV brand, followed by clicking on ‘Start Broadcast.’ Given a little time, the screen mirroring will commence. From time to time, it might be a bit slow depending on the app, but you’ll get there. Once it has started, you will see your iPhone screen reflected on your Smart TV. Hooray! 🥳🎉
