Screen mirroring – Why can’t I find a TV device for Apple phone screen mirroring?

Many leading TV manufacturers are incorporating airplay into their TV systems, allowing for effortless sharing or mirroring of all content from Apple to smart TVs that support the airplay system. We can even play music on TV and synchronize with AirPlay2 compatible speakers from all over the house. The official Apple Airplay 2 allows for 1:1 distribution of video resources on mobile phones. In other words, if your video resources have 8K image quality, HDR10, and high frame rate, then they will be displayed on your TV with the same image.

Why can’t I find TV devices in the Apple phone mirror?

Firstly, we need to know that the Airplay screen image of Apple phones can only be projected onto televisions that support the Airplay protocol; Sony signed an Airplay agreement with Apple, so some new TVs that came out later can be searched, but the previous TVs were still not supported.

Secondly, for mobile phone screen projection TV, it is necessary to have the phone and TV in the same network environment, such as plugging in an internet cable to the TV and connecting the phone to the same router’s WIFI.

A detailed solution to the inability to search for TV through screen mirroring

If, according to the above, it is confirmed that the same network and both the phone and TV support the screen casting protocol, but the built-in screen casting function of the phone still cannot achieve screen casting, then the following screen casting method can be considered.

1. Projection software. There are many free screen projection protocols available on the market, and you can download and try them yourself. The connection method is also very simple.

2. Wireless screen projector. As a professional office equipment, Bijie Multimedia Collaboration System is often used for screen projection in business conference rooms or smart classrooms.

1. Connect the multimedia collaboration system receiver box to the TV via HDMI cable

2. Open WIFI directly on the Apple phone and connect to the AP hotspot on the box

3. Open the screen mirror on the phone, select the ID of the box, and complete the screen projection.

In this mode, projecting local content on an iPhone does not consume data, but projecting other network resources such as browsing the internet or watching TV on the phone will consume data. Special reminder: It also consumes twice the amount of data as usual when using a mobile internet connection. Previously, some netizens were worried that screen mirroring would consume twice the amount of data. This is a special statement.

Insert the box into the internet cable, connect the phone to the router WIFI, open the screen mirror on the phone, select the ID of the box, and project the screen. In this mode, there will be no consumption of mobile data, so you can use it with confidence.
