Using an Apple TV – This is probably the easiest method as it does not require that much to Setup. If you have an Apple TV sitting at home, then you might choose to use just that. Instead of wasting extra money getting the lightning HDMI adapter or Google ChromeCast. All you have to do is make sure your Apple TV and Your iPhone are connected to the same wireless network. Might be a WiFi Router or a Mi-Fi. Then swipe up on your iPhone x to see the control center, Select the AirPlay option and choose if you want to mirror your screen or just send videos.

If you happen to have the Apple TV 4k, then you can also mirror and send 4K and HDR videos.


From experience, I can tell that wired connections are still the best so I will be going with the lightning HDMI adapter. The lightning HDMI adapter is less likely to lag or skip during mirroring, although Chromecast is also a good alternative nothing beats a wired connection.

The only disadvantage is that if the HDMI cable turns out to be short, then you will have to stay close to the TV. Whereas if it is wireless (Chromecast and Apple TV), they can control what’s showing on your TV from your couch with your iPhone X at your hand. Just like a remote control.
