Whatever your reason is, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to mirror or cast your iPhone to your Roku media player.

What Does Screen Mirroring Mean?

Screen mirroring is a wireless technology that allows you to display the videos, music, photos, games, or web pages that are on your iPhone on your TV. In other words, it’s like turning your TV into a mirror that reflects whatever in on your iPhone wirelessly. With that said, Roku does not technically support mirroring with any iOS device. However, you can screencast to your TV from several apps, or cast any media that is stored on your iPhone.
