How to cast Apple TV from iPhone?
Apple’s AirPlay protocol enables you to easily mirror Apple TV content from your iPhone or iPad to a TV.
The feature allows you to replay videos you recorded on your iPhone, display a photo library or even present your slideshow.
With Airplay, you can stream your entire screen on Apple TV or narrow it down to a specific video from your apps. It will work with third-party apps to stream media, including movies, podcasts, TV shows, and many more, from your streaming service to your TV.
Here is how you can cast Apple TV from your iPhone.
Step 1: Ensure your iPhone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Apple TV.
Step 2: For iPhone X or newer versions, swipe down to locate Control Center; for older versions, you will need to swipe up to find the Control Center.
Step 3: Tap the screen mirroring icon, which resembles two overlapping buttons.
Step 4: Choose the Apple TV from the list.
Step 5: On your iPhone device, key in the 4-digit code displayed on your TV.

Can you Chromecast Apple TV from iPad to smart TV?
With a Chromecast-enabled device, you can watch Apple TV’s videos and shows from the iPad on your Smart TV. The process is as follows;
- Connect your Chromecast and iPad to the same wireless network.

- Tap Library, then TV Shows or Movies.
- Select the show or the movie you want to watch.

This is why users often report that the Apple TV app is not showing on Chromecast.
