Step 2

Connect your iPhone and Mac/Windows computer to the same network.

Step 3

Open Reflector on your computer. 

Step 4

Open Control Center on your iPhone by swiping down or swiping up on your screen. The correct swipe motion depends on the iPhone you are using:

  • iPhone 8 or older: Swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
  • iPhone X or later: Swipe down from the top right corner of the screen.

Step 5

Tap the Screen Mirroring button — it’s the icon with two overlapping rectangles.

Step 6

Scroll through the list of AirPlay receivers and select your destination. Possible destinations include Apple TV, Reflector on Mac/Windows, or any other viable AirPlay receiver on your network. If you’re using Reflector, this will default to the name of your computer.

Your iOS 16 iPhone is now screen mirroring to your selected destination.
