Mirroring your iPhone to a Mac is an easy way to share content and use your phone as a secondary display. With the right setup, you can view and listen to whatever appears and plays on your iPhone directly on your Mac. Here's how to get started mirroring your iPhone to your Mac in 2020.
First, make sure that both devices are updated with the latest software, are turned on, and are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Also, consider restarting both devices if you haven't done so recently.
On your Mac, click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar at the top-right of your screen. Select System Preferences and Bluetooth—you'll see a list of Bluetooth items that you can connect to. Click the image of your iPhone and accept the connection request from the smartphone.
On your iPhone, open Control Center, then choose AirPlay as the playback destination. You should now see options for mirroring or extending your display—choose whichever one works best for you. If you're having trouble with AirPlay not appearing in Control Center, try resetting network settings or restarting both devices again after making sure they're connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
And that's all there is to it! You can now view and listen to whatever appears on your iPhone directly on your Mac screen—it's a great way of sharing content across multiple devices quickly and easily. Good luck!

Lack of Screen Mirroring Feature on Mac Computers
It's possible that your Mac doesn't support screen mirroring. Screen mirroring is only available on Macs with certain models of Macbooks, iMacs, and Mac Mini devices released after mid-2011. If your Mac is not one of these models, then it does not have the necessary hardware to support screen mirroring. Additionally, you must be running at least macOS Sierra for the feature to be enabled.
Troubleshooting Mac Not Detecting Phone
There could be several reasons why your Mac is not detecting your phone. First, make sure the USB cable is securely connected to both your Mac and your phone. Also, try a different port on the Mac or a different USB cable. If that doesn't work, try restarting both devices. If that still doesn't work, you may want to check for any software updates on both devices and see if that helps. You may also need to reset your phone's network settings or restore it from a backup. If none of these solutions work, contact Apple support for further assistance.
