How to connect the iPhone to television (2017)

The consumption of live television is falling really fast, more and more people prefer to have access to the contents of the video platforms on demand, and in many cases, they can only use their smartphone or tablet to access them. Not everyone has a smart TV , or has an idea how to use it, so it's usually easier to keep using the iPhone to watch our favorite series.

However, the truth is that it is much easier than it may seem at first. After years of complications, things have been simplified for those who want to enjoy their movies, series or games with the incomparable quality of their television. Or simply, for those who although their screen is of great quality, like the new iPhone X , they need a larger monitor to share their contents.

Regardless of why you are here, today on CP we will teach you the best ways to connect your iPhone or iPad to your home television , or to a projector. Take a seat, because surely you will find the perfect method for home, office, or where you want to share the image of your phone or tablet.

AirPlay, the simplest solution for Apple TV users 

It is possible that those who have a second-generation Apple TV or higher already know, in fact, many of you will have purchased it precisely for this reason, but you can use AirPlay to "reflect" on your screen what you do in your iPhone With a good wireless network, you will not have any problem when it comes to displaying any image through the Apple TV, and of course, you can use the TV speakers to improve the experience.

To use AirPlay, you just have to have your Apple TV turned on and connected to the same network as the iPhone. In this way, you can detect it and it will show it to you in the control center, in the Duplicate screen option. In addition, you can also use AirPlay for specific videos, you just have to press the icon on the player and it will show you the compatible devices nearby.
Chromecast, a perfect classic for all budgets

If you want to avoid having to spend the 160 euros that a fourth generation Apple TV costs, maybe you want to buy a Chromecast. The small Google device will allow you to send the content of any compatible app , such as Netflix or Google Docs apps. Of course, you will not have the option to duplicate the screen of your iPhone or iPad, since this is a function that is exclusive to AirPlay or the following accessory that we will show you below.

If you already have a Chromecast in any of your screens, you only have to press the Cast button , which appears in the compatible apps, to send the content from the iPhone to the TV. Once you have done it, you can stop using your phone without any problem, since the Chromecast just needs to know what you want to play to do it independently to your device.

Finally, you will always have the Apple AV cable

If none of the above options convinces you, then it's time to go back to traditional methods. If the wireless fails, the cable will always be there. You have an official adapter available, which you can get here , which will allow you to get an HDMI connection, with compatibility up to 1080p , and another Lightning connector to charge the phone or tablet at the same time. Of course, it is not the cheapest option, but it is the most reliable by far.

To use it, you only have to connect it to the Lightning port of your device and then connect the television via an HDMI cable. It is the simplest, but you will have to manage to use your iPhone while it is connected to a television or a projector.

Choose the method you choose, rest assured that your experience will be unbeatable. Your apps, your games, your files, presentations ... Everything, on the largest screen you have within reach. It looks good, right?
