How to Screen Mirror iOS 11 iPads and iPhones to Mac and Windows Computers

Screen mirroring iPad and iPhone screens to your Mac or Windows computer is easy with iOS 11.

All you need to do is add one application to your Mac or Windows computer to turn it into an AirPlay-compatible receiver.

That application is called Reflector 2. Hundreds of thousands of people worldwide use Reflector to mirror and record iOS devices.

Mirroring your iPhone or iPad screen to a computer running Reflector is still fundamentally the same with iOS 11. The only difference is that AirPlay Mirroring is now called Screen Mirroring in the iPad and iPhone Control Center. 

Here’s how to mirror your iPhone or iPad running iOS 11 to any Reflector-enabled Mac or Windows computer.

Step One

Check that your iOS 11 device and your computer running Reflector 2 are connected to the same network. 

Step Two

Open Reflector 2 on your Mac or Windows computer from your applications folder.
