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

I just purchased and installed istreamer. When I turn on the channel on my TV, I get the message “mirror your mac, iphone ……. to your roku. 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.
