How to Screen Mirror an iPadOS 16 iPad
This tutorial demonstrates how to screen mirror an iPad to a Mac or Windows computer, but the instructions are the same when connecting to other AirPlay receivers as well.
We are using the Reflector computer software to mirror iPad to a Mac or Windows device. Reflector is a screen mirroring receiver app that is packed with pro tools and features that make it a popular app for people who record instructional videos, teach, live stream mobile games, live stream content creation, develop mobile apps and more..
Note: To mirror your iPad to other devices that accept AirPlay connections, such as Apple TV, skip to step 4 and remember to always check that your iPad and the device you want to share to are on the same wifi network.
Download and install Reflector on your Mac or Windows computer.
Connect your iPad and Mac/Windows computer to the same network.
Open Reflector on your computer.
Open Control Center on your iPad by swiping down from the top right corner.
Tap the Screen Mirroring button — it’s the icon with two overlapping rectangles.
Scroll through the list of available AirPlay destinations and select where you want to mirror your screen. If you’re using Reflector, this will default to the name of your computer.
After a moment, your iPadOS 16 iPad will now be screen mirroring to your computer or selected AirPlay receiver.
If you want to screen mirror to another AirPlay destination like an Apple TV, the steps to connect remain the same. All you need to do is choose the name of your Apple TV or other AirPlay device from the screen mirroring receiver list in step 6.
