Screen mirroring your iPad to a Samsung TV allows you to view content from your iPad on the big screen. This is useful for watching movies, viewing photos, giving presentations, playing games, and more.

There are a few different methods to screen mirror an iPad to a Samsung TV depending on the model of TV and version of iPad you have. The easiest options are using AirPlay or the SmartThings app.


Before screen mirroring, make sure:
