For the individuals who love playing games on their iOS devices, having the ability to play those games on a bigger screen is a dream come true. For this, would you want to convert your iPhone into a gaming console?
You can quickly connect your iPhone to your Apple TV to play iOS games on your TV with a widescreen with better sound and picture. You can even utilize it to display your videos, pictures, music and more!
What are the requirements?
So what would you require? Heaps of wires and cables? Obviously not! You just need a second-generation Apple TV or later and a device running iOS.
The device must support Airplay Mirroring, which was made available in iPhone 4s or later, iPad 2 or later, first-generation iPad mini or later, or the fifth-generation iPod touch.
If you believe that you have the requirements then you’re simply prepared to send your iOS game to your television.
So let’s send the audio and video from your iOS device to your TV with Airplay Mirroring. Follow the steps in the rundown below to turn into a gaming freak.
How to Play iOS Games on your TV with AirPlay Mirroring
Step #1. Connect your iOS device and your Apple TV to the same WiFi network.
Step #2. Turn the Apple TV on.
Step #3. On your iOS device, swipe from the bottom of the screen to open Control Center.
Step #4. Tap the AirPlay button to select the Apple TV.
Step #5. Turn on Mirroring and open the game you want to play.
Step #6. Use your iPad or iPhone as the controller.
Here it is worth mentioning that if a game does not support AirPlay, you won’t be able to see the game on Apple TV but just the sound. And also that if you have a slow WiFi connection there may be an additional lag with AirPlay. And you’ll still need to look at the iOS device to touch any on-screen controls.
