Connecting your iPhone to Apple TV allows you to enjoy your favorite multimedia content on a bigger screen. Whether you want to stream videos, display photos, or play games, this simple guide will walk you through the process step by step.


Before getting started, make sure you have the following:

  • An iPhone (compatible with AirPlay)
  • An Apple TV (4th generation or later)
  • A stable Wi-Fi network

Step 1: Set up your Apple TV

Firstly, ensure that your Apple TV is properly set up and connected to your television. Follow the instructions that came with your device to connect it to power and complete the setup process.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone and Apple TV to the same Wi-Fi network

To establish a connection between your iPhone and Apple TV, both devices must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Go to the Settings app on both devices and select Wi-Fi. Choose the same network from the list of available options.

Step 3: Enable AirPlay on your iPhone

Now, it’s time to enable AirPlay on your iPhone. Swipe up from the bottom of your screen (for models with a home button) or swipe down from the top right corner (for models without a home button) to access Control Center. Tap on the Screen Mirroring or AirPlay icon (it looks like a rectangle with an arrow pointing upwards) and select your Apple TV from the list of available devices.


For some older iPhones, AirPlay may be listed as “AirPlay Mirroring” instead of “Screen Mirroring.”

Step 4: Enjoy your content on the big screen

Congratulations! Your iPhone is now connected to your Apple TV.

You can start streaming videos, casting photos, or even playing games on the larger TV screen. Simply open the app or media you want to display and it will appear on your TV.


– To adjust the volume, use your iPhone’s volume buttons or control it directly on the Apple TV remote.

– To disconnect your iPhone from Apple TV, go back to Control Center and tap on the Screen Mirroring or AirPlay icon again. Then select “iPhone” instead of your Apple TV.


With just a few simple steps, you can easily connect your iPhone to Apple TV and enjoy an enhanced multimedia experience. Whether you’re watching movies, sharing photos, or playing games, this seamless connection allows you to take full advantage of both devices. So grab some popcorn and get ready for a cinematic experience right from the comfort of your living room!
