5 Easy Steps To Mirror iPhone To Roku

roku-tv-1-thegem-blog-default

So you bought yourself a Roku TV and wanted to stream something on it from your iPhone.

But, there’s a catch.

iPhone screen mirroring on TV isn’t that simple without an Apple TV.

Don’t get me wrong. I love Apple and Apple products as much as the next guy, but Apple’s compatibility with non-Apple products has always been poor.

It’s something that we just have to deal with. What you need is a workaround.

What is Roku Screen Mirroring?

Roku screen mirroring simply means sharing your iPhone/iPad device screen onto your Roku TV. The setup doesn’t need any wires or cables, however, you have to be connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Remember that, both your iPhone/iPad and the Roku TV must be on the same Wi-Fi network.

When you mirror iPhone to Roku, all you’re really doing is duplicating your screen on the TV or projector.

This is a useful way to stream photos, videos, music, apps, and games on your TV from your iOS devices.

How To Mirror iPhone to Roku

So let’s dive right in. Here’s what you need to mirror iPhone to Roku.

Firstly, you need to have these devices with you in order for it to work.

On my iphone, I’m seeing a screen with message “Everything on your screen, including…… In a box at the top there is a red dot in a red circle and the dot is blinking on and off. Below it says “Screen broadcast”..
I can’t seem to get any further.

Where do I find the settings for Standard or Advanced mode? Is that on my iPhone, my TV or the Roku?

I have 4K Roku and the screen casting is very grainy you can’t even read the picture.

2 things… the “Live” setting is super grainy. Switching to Standard or Advanced gives me extreme lag (10-15 seconds).
Also, there’s a note saying that everything I’m broadcasting will be recorded. Where does it record to? I didn’t see it in photos/video on my iPhone.

I am trying to get my iPad to pair with my RoKu TV and I’ve made sure to have both on the same WiFi connection but the App isn’t making contact or something because it just says searching

I’ve been using Mirror For Roku successfully for a few months. Suddenly this morning my screencast is on the right half of my TV instead of centered. Also when I lay the iPhone horizontal I used to get the full image on the TV. Now it only shows about half of what’s on my phone but fills the entire TV screen. I’ve changed nothing to my knowledge and there have been no updates. What gives?

I just downloaded this app on two iPhone 8s (hers and my own) , changed the Settings to include SCREEN MIRRORING on the swipe up menus and both are up and working in just a few minutes time each. Now we can stream my cousin Guy Davis’ COFFEE with KOKOMO live music podcast on FB every morning at 10 EST, anything on YOUTUBE with full sound from our phones instead of having to fire up one of our MacBooks to mirror streaming content. BOTH TIMES I had to repeatedly fight off the ChromeCast app which intrudes full screen while either… Read more »

I just read about 9 posts below my first comment: All I can add is that both of our iPhone 8s worked perfectly right off. We have a 55″ Vizio smart TV, built in ROKU along with a bunch of apps we don’t or rarely use. We have full sound and brilliant sharp video resolution with no issues whatsoever and this is with audio from TV only. HOWEVER: I built a SONOS home theater using two old bookend speakers I had for years and a Sonos AMP and CONTROL THAT I GOT FOR $40 at an estate sale three months… Read more »
