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

  • A Lightning cable to connect your iPhone to your Mac

Step 1: Install QuickTime Player on your Mac

In order to mirror your iPhone on your Mac, you’ll need to have QuickTime Player installed. If you don’t already have it, you can download it for free from the App Store.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone to your Mac

Take the Lightning cable and connect one end to your iPhone and the other end to an available USB port on your Mac. Make sure both devices are turned on and unlocked.

Step 3: Open QuickTime Player

Launch QuickTime Player by searching for it in Spotlight or by navigating through the Applications folder. Once open, go to the “File” menu and select “New Movie Recording.”

Step 4: Select your iPhone as the video source

In the new movie recording window that appears, click on the small triangle next to the red record button. From the drop-down menu that appears, select your connected iPhone as the video source.

Step 5: Start mirroring your iPhone on your Mac

After selecting your iPhone as the video source, you should now see your iPhone screen mirrored on your Mac. You can resize the QuickTime Player window to your desired dimensions and even enter full-screen mode for a better viewing experience.

Additional Tips:

If you want to record the screen of your iPhone while mirroring it on your Mac, you can do so by clicking on the red record button in QuickTime Player. To stop recording, simply click on the stop button that appears in the menu bar.

If you encounter any issues during the process, make sure that both devices are up to date with the latest software updates. Additionally, try using a different Lightning cable or USB port to rule out any connectivity problems.
