iOS 15: How to Mirror iPhone Video and Audio to the Mac Screen with macOS Monterey

Among the endless novelties of iOS 15, an interesting possibility is to send video and audio of the iPhone to the Mac screen, in a very simple way along the lines of what is already possible with Apple TV, thanks to AirPlay.

The procedure for casting screen and audio to Mac is very simple. iPhone must have iOS 15 installed and Mac the latest beta version of macOS 12 Monterey.

  1. Swipe the iPhone Control Center by swiping down from the top right corner of the screen.
  2. Click on the control center icon (the two rectangles)
  3. If your Mac appears, select it to duplicate the screen.
  4. At this point, whatever you do on your phone will be on the Mac screen
  5. You can use it to play apps that run normally on your phone on the larger screen.

To stop duplicating, just press the Esc key on your Mac. Alternatively, you can quit duplicating by opening Control Center again, swiping up from the bottom of the screen, or tapping Stop Duplicating.

Keep in mind that both the Mac and the iPhone must – of course – be connected to the same WiFi network. It is impossible to link them if they are on different connections.

Only send videos and audios from YouTube or other specific apps

If instead of the whole screen, you want to cast the content of an app, for example, you can do this with certain apps. With the YouTube app for iOS, for example, you need to open the video of your interest, select the icon with the square and the “waves” at the bottom left, choose “AirPlay & Bluetooth device” and select the Mac as the screen to view the contents and press Play.

You can only activate the function in Macs that have an M1 processor or later. It’s that simple.
