It’s safe to say that the iPhone XS Max was one of the phones that users were most excited about in 2018. After it was released and the world was able to see it in its full glory, Apple enthusiasts around the world instantly fell in love with it.
Even though its 6.5” display is nothing short of impressive, mirroring it to a big screen is always a good idea if you want to enjoy streaming media and other multimedia content in superior visual quality. There are several ways to mirror the screen of your iPhone XS Max to your TV or your computer.
Mirroring on Apple TV
Many Apple users don’t stop at just one device. Apple’s ecosystem makes you want to get your hands on as many pieces of their tech as you can. If you’re like this and you own an Apple TV, screen mirroring will be as easy as it gets. Here’s how to do it:
Make sure both your iPhone XS Max and Apple TV are on the same Wi-Fi network.
On your iPhone, swipe down from the upper-right corner of the screen to open the Control Center.
Tap the Screen Mirroring option and look for your Apple TV from the list of devices, then tap it.
As soon as this is done, you should see your iPhone’s screen on your Apple TV. But what if you don’t have one? Well, there’s another easy solution to try.
