- From there, tap on the AirPlay Mirroring button and then tap on your Apple TV.

How to Connect iPhone SE to TV Via Cable
To use this method, you would need an adapter that can hook your iPhone to the cable, and Apple makes two kinds. The Lightning Digital AV Adapter connects your iPhone to your TV’s HDMI port. The Lightning to VGA Adapter plugs into VGA-compatible peripherals.
To use either adapter, you will also need to own an HDMI or VGA cable that can connect from the adapter to the compatible plug on the back (or side) of the TV. Either one will do, so just go for the least expensive on you can get your hands on. Connect your iPhone or iPad to the Lightning cable end of the adapter and plug the other end to the HDMI or VGA cable. Plug the cable into the back of your TV and switch the TV’s input to the port. Your screen of your iPhone SE will be displayed on the TV.
You should note that the adapter will max out at 1080p. This means you will not be able to watch content in 4K. Also, be aware that there are some games that do not work with dongles. This means that anything sent from your iPhone to your TV will be delayed by a few seconds. This makes it less ideal for gaming.
