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.
