Why did I need to screencast from iPhone to Ipad?
While recording videos or taking photos with the iPhone, I wanted to use my iPad’s screen as a monitor. This would save me time in composing the frame and while shooting myself on video, I can use the iPhone’s main camera and position myself looking at the iPad. I browsed the internet and there were different solutions but some required jailbroken iPhone or multiple apps to install or were paid apps.
Possible Screencasting combination
You can screen mirror between any two ios devices like:
- iPhone to iPhone screen mirroring
- iPhone to iPad screen mirroring
- iPad to iPhone screencasting
- iPhone to iPod screen mirroring
- or any alternative combinations you can make :)
Using Apowermirror for screen mirroring/ casting from iPhone to iPad
connect both devices to same wifi network! This is crucial as screencasting is carried out via wifi signal.
open Apowermirror app on both devices
on the device, you want to screencast from, tap screencast icon from the bottom centre
the app shows your available devices for screencasting quickly as both the devices are connected on the same network or you can use QR code to scan and connect
tap on the device you want to screencast to
pull up/ down your control centre and press on screen record option and choose broadcast to Apowermirror
Voila! In few seconds your iPhone’s screen pops up in another device!
Or watch the short video above!
Limitations of Apowermirror Screencast
- must be on the same wifi network, doesn’t pair through BlueTooth/ airplay
- few seconds delay in transmission might be noticed but this won’t hamper the overall experience
- quality of the screencast transmitted video
Apart from the above limitations, this single app does the job for me! It is free, easy to use, no ads, no sign-ups required or anything!
