Casting your iPhone screen to your Android TV can be a convenient way to enjoy your favorite videos, photos, and even games on a bigger screen. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to cast your iPhone to an Android TV.

Requirements:

Before we get started, there are a few things you’ll need:

  • An iPhone running iOS 11 or later
  • An Android TV with built-in Chromecast support or a Chromecast device connected to your TV
  • A stable Wi-Fi network connection for both your iPhone and Android TV

Step 1: Connect Your iPhone and Android TV to the Same Wi-Fi Network

In order for casting to work properly, both your iPhone and Android TV need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Make sure both devices are connected before moving on to the next step.

Step 2: Enable Screen Mirroring on Your iPhone

To cast your iPhone screen, you need to enable the AirPlay feature. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Control Center on your iPhone by swiping down from the top right corner (on newer iPhones) or up from the bottom of the screen (on older iPhones).
  2. Tap on the “Screen Mirroring” option.
  3. A list of available devices will appear. Select your Android TV or Chromecast device from the list.
  4. If prompted, enter the PIN or code displayed on your TV screen.
  5. Your iPhone screen should now be mirrored on your Android TV!

Step 3: Adjust Screen Orientation and Display Settings (Optional)

By default, your iPhone screen will be mirrored in portrait mode on your Android TV. If you prefer a landscape orientation, you can adjust the screen orientation on your iPhone:

  1. Open the Control Center again.
  2. Select your Android TV or Chromecast device.
  3. Tilt your iPhone sideways to switch to landscape mode.

You can also adjust the display settings on your Android TV for a better viewing experience. Explore the settings menu on your TV to find options such as picture mode, aspect ratio, and display size.

Troubleshooting Tips:

1. Ensure Both Devices are Connected to Wi-Fi:

If you’re having trouble connecting or casting, double-check that both your iPhone and Android TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Restarting your router may also help resolve any connectivity issues.

2. Update Your iPhone and Android TV Software:

Make sure both your iPhone and Android TV have the latest software updates installed. Outdated software can sometimes cause compatibility issues with casting.

3. Restart Your Devices:

If you’re still experiencing issues, try restarting both your iPhone and Android TV. This can help refresh their connections and resolve any temporary glitches.

That’s it! You should now be able to cast your iPhone screen to your Android TV effortlessly. Enjoy watching videos, sharing photos, or playing games on the big screen!

Note: The steps mentioned above may vary slightly depending on the iOS version and model of your iPhone, as well as the brand and model of your Android TV or Chromecast device.
