How to Mirror iPhone to TV without WiFi (Step by Step Guide)
In order to mirror your iPhone to TV without using your Wifi is by bypassing wireless altogether by using Apple digital AV lightning adapter plugs into the bottom of your iPhone or iPad.
- As you plug the adapters, it will allow you to output via HDMI to any display screen you might be having near you. This gives you access to a bypass charging port as well.
- It is an expensive technique because these AV adapters are expensive adapters but if you’re looking to travel without having to worry about setting up a roku or fire TV. Drawing this adaptor in your bag is a very convenient way to go and if you ready for a one time investment then these adaptors make a perfect deal.
If you have a TV which is capable of receiving an airplay broadcasts then you don’t have to use a physical adapter anymore instead you can use another feature that is unknown called peer to peer airplay that uses Bluetooth to mirror your phone without the need of Wifi.
- Make sure both devices are disconnected from Wifi and you need to also ensure that Wifi is still enabled on both devices, no need to disable it.
- Now pair your phone to your TV over Bluetooth using the standard pairing method on your phone, as each phone has their own methods. Once you are connected to your TV over Bluetooth, you should be able to see your TV appear in your airplay devices selection screen. Though you may need to restart both devices to make it work as it won’t work easy if reboot is not done. Restart you’re both the devices.
- Apple does not recommend using peer to peer method regularly because it can harm your hardware if used regularly. In fact it’s hard to find any documentation on the feature of peer to peer at all on their website.
- Similarly some third party apps including Netflix do not work in peer to peer mode of mirroring your iPhone to TV and this problem may lead you back to turning to the basic HDMI adapter to mirror your iPhone to your TV offline.
