Use Reflector 2 to mirror the iPhone/iPad screen to Android or Samsung TV

iOS and Android are completely different systems, so when you want to mirror screens between them, it’s a tougher process. Reflector 2 does you a favor when you mirror an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch screen to such a cross-platform receiver, such as a Samsung TV or other Android device.

What is Reflector 2?

Reflector 2 (, also known as Android Reflector 2, is a kind of wireless image and streaming media receiver, can be used with any Android device. It enables you to display your computer screen or iOS device on any Android device or TV that supports Android (Samsung and SONY TVS, TCL TVS, Sharp TVS, VIZIO TVS, etc.). However, Reflector 2, which is available for Android, has difficulty mirroring Android screens to Samsung or Sony TV. You need to use Reflector 2 to mirror the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch screen to your Android device, then use Google Cast to mirror the screen image to your TV with Google Cast built in.

You will need:

AiPad Pro / 2/3/4 / Air/Air 2/ mini, iPod touch 5/6, iPhone 12/11 / XS/XR/X / 8/7 / SE / 6/5/4S
TVS that support Android ID, such as Samsung TV/Sony TV with Google Cast
Android phones that support Google Cast

Steps to mirror an iPhone iPad iPod touch to a Samsung/SONY TV

Step 1: Mirror the Androdi phone to a Samsung TV/SONY TV

Enable the same Wi-Fi connection for your Android phone and Samsung TV. As Samsung devices use a slightly different Google Cast protocol, and may require the help of the free Google Home app to connect to Reflector2. You can download it to your Samsung phone, then go to Apps > Settings > Enable Screen Mirroring to select a Samsung TV.

Step 2: Mirror your iPhone/iPad to your TV

Run Reflector 2 on your Android phone. Then, on your iOS device, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring up the Control Center. From there, click on the “AirPlay” option. Then click the name of your Android device from the list. The screen on your iOS device should now be mirrored on your Android device. At the same time, the screen on the Samsung phone will be displayed on the Samsung TV.

The process is a little complicated. However, you can easily gain share between iPhone, iPad, iPod touch screen and Samsung TV.
