Mirroring iphone to smart tv

Posted 11th Jan
I found a way to mirror an ios device to a smart android tv. not sure if it's a known way or not but it's pretty useful if you dont have an apple tv box.

You need an android tv for this to work.

Download es file explorer from the play store
Download it on an android device aswell
Download airplay mirroring reciever on the android device
Then send the app to the tv through es file explorer
and that's it you can mirror an ios device to an android tv

Want to know if this is a well known way to do it or too long winded and people prefer buying an apple tv box

The play store on my android is restricted to certain apps which is why I had to go through this long winded way lol

Also only supports up to 1080p and doesn’t support HDR. You would think for £50 you would get more for your money
I’ve managed sending films across via the Toshiba app but it’s buggy
