Yesterday, I was going through my old emails, and I found that there were multiple emails where people asked me, “Can I Mirror an iPhone to a Fire Stick?
To Mirror an iPhone to a Fire Stick, install the AirScreen app on your TV and launch it. Then, choose ‘Start Now’ and navigate to ‘Settings’ to enable ‘AirPlay.’ Now, swipe diagonally on your iPhone from the top right corner of the screen to access the Control Center. Tap on the AirPlay icon and select the AirScreen app.
This article will guide you through the step-by-step process of how to mirror your iPhone to an Amazon Fire TV Stick.
How Do I Mirror My iPhone To My Firestick?
Several applications can help you mirror your iPhone screen to your Fire Stick.
I like the ‘AirScreen, AirPlay, Cast Miracast & DLNA’ app, which is available at no cost for Fire Stick users. You can easily mirror your iPhone screen onto your TV via the Fire Stick. Simply add this App to your Fire Stick, and you’re all set to mirror your screen.
Here’s how you can cast your iPhone to your TV through Firestick:
- Download and install the AirScreen app from the Google Play store on your Fire TV Stick.
- Once the AirScreen App is installed, open the App and select Start Now.
- Go to the menu and click on the gear ‘Settings’ icon. Ensure that ‘AirPlay’ is activated by clicking on it. If it isn’t already checked, do it.
- On your iPhone, swipe downwards from the top right corner in a diagonal to bring up the ‘Control Center.’
- Tap on the ‘Airplay’ icon.
- Once you’ve activated Screen Mirroring on your iPhone, return to your Fire Stick and ensure that AirScreen is present on the Home screen. If it’s not, click on the house symbol located in the left navigation menu. After doing so, you should notice a device name appearing on your TV screen.
- Choose the name of the device that is showing on your TV screen on your iPhone. Once the connection is established, your iPhone display will be mirrored onto your television.
Once you’ve completed your screen mirroring session with the Fire Stick, you can stop screen mirroring by navigating back to the Control Center, selecting the screen mirroring symbol, and choosing ‘Stop Mirroring.’
For future mirroring sessions from your iPhone to the Fire Stick, simply launch the AirScreen App and initiate the mirroring process on your iPhone. While the device name may vary, the AirScreen app will consistently indicate the correct device for connection.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I AirPlay to a Firestick?
Unfortunately, Amazon Firestick does not come with built-in support for AirPlay, which means you cannot directly cast your iPhone or iPad to your Firestick. AirPlay is generally a feature exclusive to Apple devices, and as Amazon’s Fire OS operates on Android, it naturally tends to support integrations that are Android-based.
What is the best free App to mirror iPhone to Firestick?
Why is my screen mirroring not working on Firestick?
Screen mirroring issues on your Firestick can occur for various reasons, such as connectivity issues, distance between the devices, or settings not being correctly configured.
A simple solution is to restart both devices by unplugging them from the power source for about 30 seconds. This can often reset any temporary issues and get things back on track.
How do I mirror my iPhone to my Firestick without WIFI?
You can mirror content from your iPhone or iPad to your Amazon Fire TV Stick by installing a third-party application. There are numerous apps available for this purpose, but a notable and free option is the AirScreen app on Amazon, which has proven compatibility with iOS devices.
Is screen mirroring the same as AirPlay?
Screen mirroring and AirPlay, while similar, serve different purposes.
Screen mirroring replicates your iPhone’s screen onto the TV, meaning you can mirror everything on your phone onto the big screen. This allows you to share not just media but also other activities like gaming or browsing.
On the other hand, AirPlay streams media directly from your phone to your television without displaying your phone’s screen on the TV. This means that only the specific media you choose to AirPlay will be visible on the TV, and not any other activities you might be doing on your phone.
