The new Smart TVs from LG work just fine with the operating systems of Android devices. Because of some great 3rd party apps, however, iPhone and iPad now also have options to help them connect their iOS devices to their LG Smart TV.
If you aren’t already aware, mirroring is a great feature that allows you to connect the screen of your device to a bigger screen. As a result, you can cast content on a Smart TV, quite similar to AirPlay Mirroring from iOS devices or Macs to an Apple TV.
You can also use mirroring for other things as well such as wirelessly transmitting photos, presentations and other contents with great ease and speed to an LG Smart TV. All you need is a decent app on your iPhone or iPad to get this done.
We have screened the app and fortunately, you won’t have to pay anything to get this app. Even better, the app is very easy to work with. In this guide, we will show you how to use the app to connect your iPhone to an LG Smart TV.
How Can I Mirror My iPhone to An LG Smart TV?
Follow the steps below to mirror the screen of your iPhone to an LG Smart TV using the free TV Assist app.
- First off, go to the App Store on your iPhone or iPad.
- Next up, use the search bar to search for “TV Assist.”
- Tap on the TV Assist app from the results and then tap on the cloud icon to install it.
- When it’s done installing, proceed to launch it.
- Give the app access to any kind of content you’d want to mirror to your LG Smart TV. It could even be the camera of your iPhone or microphone.
Make sure that you have your iOS device and LG Smart TV connected to one wireless network. If not, casting cannot happen. Also, if you have any VPN services enabled on your iPhone, you may have to disable them.
That is all!
You can go on and get yourself signed into as many third-party streaming or uploading services as you want, inside the app. You will even be able to access contents that aren’t even physically available to your on your iOS device.
The App Store has a bunch of mirroring apps available for you to install. Now, some of the apps cost quite a lot while others have bugs. We recommend TV Assist after performing a series of careful testing. If you are okay with the ads displayed in the app then you should be just fine with the free version. Upgrading to its paid version will remove the ads and you’ll also get unrestricted media storage inside the app.
