There are several practical ways to watch the content streamed from your iPhone on your TV without having an Apple TV.  Below, we will explore the steps on how to mirror iPhone to TV without Apple TV.

Another quick and easy way to mirror your iPhone’s screen to your TV is by using an AV adaptor. The only problem is that the dongle is quite expensive and needs to be connected to an HDMI cable, which adds to the costs. So how do I connect my iPhone to my TV using the AV adaptor?

  2. Connect the cable to your AV adaptor’s HDMI slot
