How to mirror your iPhone 14 Pro screen to a Windows PC
- You first need to download a third-party software to act as an AirPlay replacement since Apple AirPlay is not compatible with Windows. A browse through the Microsoft Store throws up some possibilities, but one good one that seems to do the job simply and efficiently is AirPlay Screen Mirroring Receiver. Please note that free users must tolerate a 30-second watermark every five minutes.
- After installing it, open it. AirPlay Screen Mirroring Receiver must be on the same Wi-Fi network as your iPhone for it to work. It will automatically name itself after your Windows PC, but you can click the pencil icon and rename the receiver to make it easier to find on your iPhone.
- Now open your iPhone. Swipe down from the top-right of the screen to open Control Center. Tap the mirroring icon, which is two squares intersecting with one another. This opens up the Screen Mirroring menu. It may take a moment or two for your Windows PC to appear, but select it when it does.
- Again, it may take a minute or two for the connection to be made (it may even time out, and you would have to try again.) But eventually, your iPhone screen will appear on your Windows PC. Now, everything you do on your iPhone screen will happen on your Windows PC. There is remarkably virtually no screen lag.
- When you want to stop screen mirroring with your Windows PC, go back to the Mirroring menu on your iPhone and tap Stop Mirroring.
