How to Mirror iPhone to Firestick
If you own an iPhone and a Firestick, you may be wondering if there’s a way to mirror your iPhone screen onto your TV using the Firestick. The good news is, there is!
In this tutorial, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of mirroring your iPhone to Firestick. Let’s get started!
- An iPhone (iPhone 6s or later) with iOS 11 or later
- A Firestick (Fire TV Stick 4K or Fire TV Stick 2nd Generation)
- An HDMI-compatible TV
- A stable Wi-Fi network
Step 1: Connect Your Firestick to Your TV
Before mirroring your iPhone, make sure your Firestick is properly connected to your TV. Plug the Firestick into an available HDMI port on your TV and connect it to a power source using the provided USB cable and power adapter.
Step 2: Enable AirPlay on Your Firestick
To enable AirPlay on your Firestick, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the home screen of your Firestick.
- Select “Settings” from the menu at the top of the screen.
- Scroll right and select “Display & Sounds.”
- Select “Enable Display Mirroring.”
- Once enabled, your Firestick will be ready to receive mirrored content from your iPhone.
Step 3: Connect Your iPhone to Your Wi-Fi Network
To mirror your iPhone to Firestick, both devices need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Make sure your iPhone is connected to your home Wi-Fi network before proceeding.
Step 4: Open Control Center on Your iPhone
Swipe down from the top-right corner of your iPhone’s screen to open Control Center. On older iPhones (iPhone X or earlier), swipe up from the bottom of the screen instead.
Step 5: Enable Screen Mirroring on Your iPhone
In Control Center, locate the “Screen Mirroring” or “AirPlay” icon. Tap on it to open the screen mirroring options.
The name of the AirPlay option may vary depending on your iOS version. It could be called “Screen Mirroring,” “AirPlay Mirroring,” or simply “AirPlay.”
Step 6: Select Your Firestick Device
After tapping on the AirPlay icon, you should see a list of available devices. Look for your Firestick’s name in the list and tap on it to establish a connection.
Make sure your Firestick is powered on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your iPhone for it to appear in the list of available devices.
Step 7: Start Mirroring Your iPhone Screen
Once connected, your iPhone screen will be mirrored onto your TV through the Firestick. You can now enjoy watching videos, playing games, or browsing photos from your iPhone directly on your TV screen!
Mirroring your iPhone screen to Firestick allows you to enjoy your favorite content on a larger screen. By following the simple steps outlined in this tutorial, you can easily mirror your iPhone to Firestick and enhance your viewing experience.
