Casting or mirroring the screen of your iPhone on your Windows PC is a very advantageous facility imparted by the iOS. This facility can be of different uses to different users in different contexts
For example, if you are a movie buff you can enjoy the movies in your iPhone on the bigger screen of your laptop.
If you are a working individual, this feature can come in handy to deliver presentations on the projector screen without the usage of laptop and projector.
If you are an iOS developer , you might want to see how your app looks on the bigger screen.
We will be discussing the Apple’s iToolsAirPlayer used for the purpose.
Given below is the step by step guide on how to install and configure iToolsAirPlayer with your iPhone and Windows PC.
iToolsAirPlayer is an app developed by a Chinese developer and thus the whole app’s language will be Chinese, but you can get through that with the help of the following steps:
Step 1: Firstly, go to the iTools store and download the AirPlayer app. When you open the page, it will be in Chinese. You need to click the ‘Download’ button, which is the big blue button on the screen. This will download the zip file to your computer.
Step 2: Open the zip folder on your computer and extract the files. Run the file with the ‘.exe’ extension i.e the executable file. This file doesn’t need the installation of any sort, all you need to provide is the iOS version of your iPhone and move forward.
Step 3: Launching the app for the first time, you will be given a guide to the app, in Chinese of course! Just go on clicking the ‘Next’ button until you reach the ‘Finish’ page.
Step 4: The Windows Firewall will ask you whether you want to allow this app to make any changes to your system. Select ‘Yes’ and you are done.
Step 5: Once all the above steps are done, you need to open the control center of your iPhone. Also make sure that your iOS device and Windows PC are connected to the same WiFi network. In the control center you must find an ‘AirPlay’ tab along with the ‘AirDrop’ tab.
Step 6: Open the AirPlay tab and connect to iTools. Do not forget to turn the ‘Mirroring’ option on and press ‘Done’.
You are done! Now you can project the screen of your iPhone on the much larger screen of your Windows PC.
This feature of ‘Screen Casting’ or ‘Mirroring’ can come really handy in different contexts which we have already mentioned above.
