Screen mirroring is a fun and helpful way to share your iPhone screen on a TV. This works great for movies, pictures, and even certain apps. If you have a Samsung smart TV, you can mirror your iPhone screen easily.

On your Samsung TV, you can also press Source on the remote and see if there’s a screen mirroring option available. If you don’t see this option, it’s likely that your TV isn’t compatible.
Some Samsung TVs allow sharing with AllShare Cast, but this feature is now outdated and isn’t the same as screen mirroring. If you don’t have an iPhone, you can also connect an Android phone to your Samsung TV.
