Fire TV is an amazing device as we can cast any device screen to it and watch its content on a TV. So, if you are looking for a way to mirror iPhone to Firestick then you are at the right place. As in this article, we are going to learn about the whole process to cast your iOS device to your TV to watch content.
The process is quite simple and complicated at the same time as there are many things that you need to know. This is why I would simply suggest keeping reading this article until the end to learn the whole process. As if you miss anything here then, unfortunately, you might not be able to mirror your device screen properly.
However, this guide will be useful for different devices like Fire TV Stick 4K, FireTV Cube, Fire Stick 2nd, 3rd Generation, and even the Lit version. In case you are using the Streaming box then, unfortunately, this guide won’t help you with it so better find any other guide on Google.
Can You Mirror iPhone to Firestick?
Of course, you can mirror the iPhone to Firestick to stream locally stored content from mobile and directly to the TV. But it is quite complicated as compared to casting it with an Android device. It because the iOS device uses AirPlay technology for screencasting while the FireTV supports MiraCast.
Basically, MiraCast is the technology of Google and that’s the reason why it is already available on Android devices. But in the case of the iPhone, it is a completely different operating system and that’s the reason why we cannot mirror it directly. However, we can still cast iOS to FireTV device by using an app.
There are plenty of apps that are available on the Amazon App Store which is free while some are paid too. These apps support AirPlay technology uses by Apple that helps the user to screencast any iOS device to android devices. That’s why in this article I am going to provide an app for mirroring.

How to Screen Mirror iPhone to Firestick
So, as we know that mirroring iPhone to Firestick requires an app to get the AirPlay compatibility. There are already several apps that are available on the Amazon App Store which works fine. However, in this guide, we are going to use the popular application named as Air Screen which is free to use.
Although it offers a premium version as well in case you want advanced features I would prefer to use a free app only. With the help of this, you can stream downloaded content, open and use apps, watch content from various apps, and so on. Even though I am listing some alternative apps below if you don’t like this one.
Ok, so let’s not waste any further time and check these steps to mirror iPhone to Firestick:
Go to the Home Screen on FireTV and from the above menu select the Search or Magnifying Glass icon.
From there use the keyboard and type AirScreen and then select the first suggestion you see below.
After this, you need to click on the first app with the AirScreen title or check the below screenshot.
At this time simply click on the Get (Free to Download) button to install the app.
The installation will take some time just wait for a while and once it is installed select Open to launch it.
When you launch the AirScreen for the first time you will see the Welcome Screen so from here select Start Now.
Now you will see the Home Screen and then you need to go to the left panel and then select Help.
After going there now select the iOS which is available at the top.
Now after going there just select the AirPlay and then leave the screen as it is.
From your, iPhone connects to the same WiFi network you are using on Firestick. At this time open control centre and then tap on the Screen Mirroring option.
When you tap on it your phone will start searching for the nearby screen so now tap on the first result you see there. Most of the times it is AS-AFTMM (AirPlay) so just tap that name.
After tapping on the name of the device, a new screen will appear and from here just press the Select button to allow the connection.
That’s it now your screen will appear on your TV and with the help of this, you are now ready to watch your photos, open app content, and can do various actions. This is really simple and easy to use and the best thing is AirScreen is free to use but has limited features only.
