On the Android side, if there is a seamless and tightly integrated feature, it has to be the Chromecast feature. You can cast your Android screen to your TV in seconds and without any lag thanks to the deeper synergy between the two Google platforms. Similarly, on the iPhone side, Apple has developed a similar AirPlay feature that works quite well on Apple TVs, but does not support streaming on Android TV. However, in this article, we show you how to overcome this limitation and convert iPhone to Android TV and make your Android TV compatible with AirPlay. So without further ado, let’s get to the guide.

Cast iPhone to Android TV (January 2021)

Before moving on to the guide, keep in mind, to get screen casting to work on both your iPhone and Android TV must be connected to a common WiFi network. Other than that, make sure both devices are closer to the router for the best screen mirroring experience from iPhone to Android TV.

1. If you use Chromecast supported apps like Google apps, Netflix, etc., you can easily cast your iPhone screen to Android TV. You won’t have to make your Android TV AirPlay compatible as these apps come with the Chromecast feature built-in. Just open any supported app (in my case, Google Photos) and look for the “cast” button. It is usually in the upper right or lower right corner. Now tap on it.

2. Next, tap on Android TV and that’s it. Your iPhone screen will be cast to Android TV in seconds. The best part is that it’s also supports audio output and landscape mode.

3. If you are not using any Chromecast supported apps and want to mirror entire iPhone screen to Android TV, you need to install a third-party app. Go ahead and install ApowerMirror (iPhone / Android TV – Free, offers in-app purchases) on your iPhone and Android TV. This will make your Android TV AirPlay compatible.

4. Now open ApowerMirror on your two devices and grant necessary permissions. Next, on your iPhone, open Control Center and tap “Screen mirroring”. Here you will find “Apowersoft” with the name Android TV. Tap it to cast your iPhone to Android TV.

5. Finally, you will have your iPhone screen on the larger TV. Now you can use any app on your iPhone and it will be mirrored on Android TV. And it’s also supports audio output, zoom in/out and landscape mode. It’s great, right? From now on, you no longer need to open and keep the app active on both devices.

6. If you experience lags or frame drops, open ApowerMirror on your Android TV and go to Settings -> General Settings -> AirPlay resolution -> 720p. That’s it.

Cast iPhone to Android TV without Chromecast

This is how you can cast entire iPhone screen to Android TV without relying on Chromecast. While Chromecast functionality is excellent and works much better with its supported apps, the third-party solution is also very good. In my usage, I found no lag after switching to 720p resolution. Either way, it’s all about us. To learn more about these Android TV tips and tricks, follow our linked article. And if you face any problem, comment below and let us know.
