Mirror macOS to Reflector

To mirror your Mac to another computer, you must be using a Mac running at least macOS 10.15 (Big Sur). Apple lists the following models as AirPlay compatible with macOS Big Sur and later: 

  • MacBook: Early 2015 and newer
  • MacBook Air: Mid 2013 and newer
  • MacBook Pro: Late 2013 and newer
  • Mac Mini: Late 2014 and newer
  • iMac: Mid 2014 and newer
  • iMac Pro: Late 2017
  • Mac Pro: Late 2013 and newer

If your computer does not meet these requirements, you can use AirParrot 3 to mirror your Mac to Reflector 4 or an Apple TV.

Follow the steps below to mirror your Mac to Reflector:

Step 1

Be sure your Mac is on the same network as the computer that has Reflector 4 installed.

Step 2

Launch Reflector 4 on the computer you wish to mirror to.

Step 3

On the Mac you would like to mirror, locate the AirPlay mirroring icon. It is located near your clock at the top right of the screen.

Step 4

Click on the AirPlay menu, and you should see a list of available devices.

Step 5

Tap on the destination computer's name.

Step 6

Your Mac should now be mirroring successfully to your computer.
