How to Mirror iPhone to PC on Windows 11?

Copper Contributor

Hello everyone,

I got a new iPhone 15 Pro Max and I'm trying to find a reliable way to mirror my iPhone's screen onto my PC running Windows 11. I've seen several methods online, but I'm not sure which ones are the most effective and user-friendly. Ideally, I'm looking for a solution that offers high-quality mirroring without too much lag, and it would be great if it also supports audio transmission.

 

Has anyone here successfully mirrored their iPhone to a Windows 11 PC?  I'm open to both free and paid solutions, as long as they are reliable and straightforward to use. Thank you in advance for your suggestions!

To mirror your iPhone to a PC running Windows 11, you can use some of the built-in features that already exist on your devices. Here are some steps you can follow:

  1. Connect your iPhone to your Windows 11 PC using a lightning cable.
  2. On your Windows 11 PC, open the “QuickTime Player” app.
  3. Click on the “File” option and then click on “New Movie Recording”.
  4. Under the “Camera” dropdown menu, select your iPhone as the camera input.
  5. Click on the red “Record” button to start mirroring your iPhone’s screen to your Windows 11 PC.

If the above methods do not work for you, you can try the following software.

 

MirrorTo is a great screen mirroring tool that allows you to mirror your iPhone screen to your Windows 11 PC wirelessly. Simply download and install MirrorTo on both your iPhone and PC, ensure they are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, and follow the on-screen instructions to establish a connection. LetsView offers high-quality mirroring and supports audio transmission.

One of the most common methods is to use third-party applications like ApowerMirror, AirServer, or Reflector. These applications allow you to mirror your iPhone's screen to your Windows 11 PC over a Wi-Fi network. First, download and install one of these applications on your Windows PC. Make sure your iPhone and PC are connected to the same Wi-Fi network for seamless mirroring.

 

After installing the chosen application on your PC, open it and follow the on-screen instructions to set it up. For instance, with ApowerMirror, you would need to download the companion app on your iPhone from the App Store. Once both applications are installed, open the app on your iPhone and connect to the same Wi-Fi network as your PC.

 

On your iPhone, swipe down from the upper-right corner of the screen to access the Control Center. Tap on "Screen Mirroring" and select the mirroring app that you have installed on your PC. Your iPhone's screen should then appear on your Windows 11 PC. The process might slightly vary depending on the app you are using, so it's advisable to follow any specific instructions provided by the app.

 

For a more direct approach without third-party apps, you can use Windows 11’s built-in "Connect" app. However, this method requires your iPhone to be jailbroken, as it involves installing an additional tweak that enables AirPlay to Windows devices, which is not natively supported by iOS. This method is less recommended due to the potential security risks and voiding of warranty associated with jailbreaking.

 

 

@Chiba575 im using a windows 11 home and i dont see a “QuickTime Player” app anywhere. It might be a pro feature

QuickTime Player is a discontinued extensible multimedia architecture created by Apple. Which is why you probably cannot find it. I don't have it either.

@Chiba575 

Sadly Quicktime won't run on my Windows 11 PC to enable the simple steps you kindly outlined.  Is there another bit of simple software I can download instead?  I need it to record something that is:

- record what is on an iPhone X browser

- Must be res of 1126x2436 

- .MOV format

- Must not show the red record button on the recording

 

Help!  I need this for work and I'm so lost!

@sandyBennett73  you need to download it. but you need the pro version if you want to mirror your phone screen

@kasper09 - thanks for taking the time to respond.  It's appreciated.  My company ended up buying a cheap reconditioned Mac to achieve the goal.  Not my money so... :)

Does this work with ipad as well???
