How to Share an iPhone Screen to a Projector
By Tyson Cliffton
The small size of iPhone screens makes it difficult to share the display with a large group so that everyone sees the same thing at the same time. As a result, walking employees through a new company app or explaining new iPhone functionality can be a painstaking process. Mirroring the iPhone's display on a projector lets everyone see what's happening on the screen in real time, allowing them to focus on what you're presenting instead of wondering when the phone will make it to them so they can test what you're talking about. You can connect an iPhone to a projector using Apple adapters.
Connect one end of either an HDMI or VGA cable into a corresponding input port on the projector you want to use to display the iPhone's screen.
Connect the other end of your video cable into the output port on the appropriate adapter. You must use the Apple VGA adapter if you're using a VGA cable or the Apple Digital AV Adapter if you're using an HDMI cable.
Connect the 30-pin connector extending from your Apple adapter into the 30-pin port along the bottom edge of your device.
Power the projector on and then change the input being displayed to correspond with the port for the video cable that's connected to the Apple adapter.
Power on the iPhone and then enter the passcode if prompted. The iPhone's display will now be mirrored on the projector's screen.
