Samsung has launched its new line of LED HDTVs that support Apple’s AirPlay technology. So we thought we’d take a look at how to connect your iPhone to a Samsung TV.

Connect an iPhone to a Samsung TV with Airplay.

How to Connect an iPhone to a Samsung TV

Samsung TVs that support Airplay 2 (models from 2018 and beyond) can connect to your iPhone.

  • Make sure your iPhone and TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Make sure Airplay is turned on on your iPhone.
  • Open the app you wish to stream from.
  • Select the Airplay option.

Note: Some programs, such as Photos, require you to first tap the share button.

Screen Mirroring with a Lightning Digital AV Adapter

This is one of the simpler solutions, but you’ll need to purchase or obtain an Apple adaptor for it to operate. For roughly $49.00, you can get the Lightning Digital AV Adapter, which works with most iOS devices, including iPhones and iPads. You’ll need an extra HDMI cable because it’ll be utilized to physically connect your iPhone to your Samsung TV.

  • Connect your iPhone to the AV Adapter.
  • The HDMI wire should be connected to the AV Adapter. The port on the adapter where the HDMI cable must be plugged in may be seen.
  • Connect the HDMI cable’s opposite end to the Samsung TV.
  • Set the Samsung TV’s source to the input to which the HDMI cable was connected. The screen of your iPhone should now be reflected on your Samsung TV.

Connect with the Samsung SmartView App

If you want to link your iPhone to your Samsung Smart TV wirelessly, there are a few apps that can help.

The Smart TV and iPhone must be linked to the same Wi-Fi network when utilizing screen mirroring apps. If your phone and TV are on different networks, the apps will not work.

The Samsung SmartView app is a free app that allows you to reflect your phone’s screen to your smart TV.

This is how:

  • Make sure your iPhone and TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Open the Samsung SmartView application. It will prompt you to input the code that appears on the screen of your Samsung Smart TV.
  • When you enter the pin, the gadget should connect to your TV immediately.

Other Apps with Mirroring Functions

Some apps, such as YouTube, have their own method of projecting the iPhone screen onto your television. Then you can view your favorite YouTube videos on your TV rather than on your phone’s little screen.
