Gather Your Equipment

Before you begin, make sure you have the following items:

  • An iPhone: Any recent model will work as long as it has a Lightning or USB-C port.
  • A TV: Any modern TV with an HDMI port will do.
  • An HDMI cable: Make sure it’s long enough to connect your iPhone to the TV.
  • An adapter (if needed): Depending on your iPhone’s port, you may require a Lightning to HDMI adapter or a USB-C to HDMI adapter.

Connecting Your iPhone to the TV

Now that you have everything ready, let’s proceed with connecting your iPhone to the TV:

Step 1: Power Off All Devices

To avoid any potential damage during the connection process, turn off both your iPhone and your TV.

Step 2: Connect Your HDMI Cable

Connect one end of the HDMI cable to your TV’s HDMI port and the other end to the appropriate adapter for your iPhone.

Step 3: Connect the Adapter to Your iPhone

If using a Lightning to HDMI adapter, connect it to your iPhone’s Lightning port. If using a USB-C to HDMI adapter, connect it to your iPhone’s USB-C port.

Step 4: Turn On Your Devices

Now, turn on both your iPhone and your TV.

Selecting the Input Source

Once your devices are powered on and connected, you need to select the correct input source on your TV. Follow these steps:

  1. Using your TV remote, press the “Input” or “Source” button.
  2. Navigate through the available input sources using the arrow keys on your remote.
  3. Select the HDMI input that corresponds to the port you connected your iPhone to.
