Apart from health, finance, entertainment and calling, there is one more exciting way you can use your iPad and iPhone; it’s gaming. iPhone and iPad are fully equipped to play high quality games. One of my favorite is Need for Speed No Limits by Electronic Arts.

But what haunts me is the desire to play it on a big screen in order to get the best out of it. There is one way by which we can enjoy such high quality games: play them on Mac using QuickTime player. It is the safest and best way, because there are no third-party apps involved.

QuickTime will now start mirroring your device display on your Mac. To have a full screen display, simply click on the green full screen icon. The best part is that your iOS device will work as a controller while your Mac will be used as a display.
