How to Screen Mirror iPhone to Samsung TV?

It is very easy to screen mirror iPhone to Samsung TV. You can do it in a few different ways, such as using Airplay to mirror an iPhone to a Samsung TV, using the Samsung SmartView App, using the lightning to HDMI linking solution, and using the AirBeamTV app.

When it comes to iPhone screen mirroring on Samsung TV, most people think that it can only be done using AirPlay, but it’s not true; you can mirror the screen of an iPhone on Samsung Smart TV using AirPlay, but their other ways also.

We also suggest using AirPlay to mirror your iPhone screen to Samsung TV, but if you have a Samsung TV Model that doesn’t support AirPlay, you can go other ways.

Now let’s understand 4 different ways to screen mirror iPhone to Samsung TV:

Fun Fact: AirPlay was popular as AirTunes back in the day as it exclusively provided music streaming services. A few additions and optimizations, and voila! We’ve got AirPlay at our disposal.

Requirements for Using AirPlay:

  • An iPhone 4s, iPad 2, 5th gen iPod touch, or later generation models, and certain macs are compatible.
  • IOS 5 or later.
  • A Wi-Fi connection with any suitable IOS device or speakers is connected.

Even if your Samsung TV is not AirPlay 2 compatible, you can use a different mirroring app or a simple wired lightning-to-HDMI connecting solution and reap the same benefits.

Method 2: The Samsung SmartView App:

Another wireless solution for mirroring your iPhone to your Samsung Smart TV is using the Samsung SmartView app. It is free and can be installed on your phone to allow screen mirroring on your Samsung TV.

Then, connect the Samsung SmartView app with your Samsung TV by entering the code that appears on your Samsung Smart TV display.

Entering the PIN will connect both devices, and you are ready to cast the contents of your iPhone on the Samsung TV.

Method 3: A Lightning to HDMI Linking Solution:

This is another solution, but you may need to buy a specific Apple adapter from Apple to work. It’s the Lightning Digital AV adapter priced at around $49.00. It works with all Apple devices, including iPhones, iPads, and Macs. It would be best if you also had an extra HDMI cable to connect the adapter to your Samsung TV.

Here are the steps:

At the very first, connect your iPhone to the AV adapter.

Connect the HDMI cable to your Samsung TV.

Now, connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the AV Adapter.

Choose the source on your Samsung TV as the input to which you just connected the HDMI cable.

And another Viola! You will now see your iPhone’s screencast on the Samsung TV.

Method 4: Using the AirBeamTV App:

If you are an iPhone or iPad user, you have another flexibility of using the AirBeamTV app, which has a screen mirroring feature that helps you instantaneously cast the contents of your screen on your Samsung Smart Television. 

This process requires your iPhone or iPad software to run on iOS 14 or higher. 

If it’s not, you can always use the other three ways listed above.

Ensure your iOS device and Samsung TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. The usage of VPNs or VLANs is not recommended.

Also, ensure that the TV is in the usual “TV” mode and connected to any HDMI port.

Follow the steps listed below:

You may be prompted to “Accept” the connection while using the app, as it will be asked only for the first time. 

Press the “Ok” button on your TV remote and wait for the devices to link.

To finally begin the screen mirroring on your Samsung TV, choose “Mirror Samsung TV” and then select “Start Broadcast” to initiate the process.
