Squirrels School - Lesson #2: Mirror an iPad or iPhone to Fire TV

image

Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick have a number of features, and both are a great, inexpensive addition to any home theater. The devices include some mirroring via Miracast, but other devices are natively left out.

Enter: Reflector.

Mirroring your iPhone or iPad to a Fire TV is easy! Installing Reflector on a Fire TV or Fire TV stick allows you to mirror an iPad, iPod or iPhone to the device.

To get Reflector for Fire TV, head over to Fire TV search and search for Reflector. (We would give you a link, but the Fire TV doesn’t support linking to apps!) Purchase, download and install Reflector.

To run Reflector, simply open the application like you would anything else. You’ll be prompted with the Reflector splash screen where you can change the AirPlay name and set or change a password.

You can close this screen and Reflector will continue to run. This allows you to mirror and stream to your Fire TV at any time!

To mirror, simply open your AirPlay list, select the Fire TV and toggle the mirror switch! Need help turning on mirroring? We have you covered.
