One of the many things people like about Apple devices is that you get a ton of new and exciting features for your devices. These features let you get a number of tasks done with ease on your Mac and iOS-based devices. Screen mirroring is one of Apple’s features that lets you view the content of one Apple device on a bigger screen, which can be achieved by named Airplay. Then, you can directly view your iPhone/iPad/iPod/Mac on HomePod, Apple TV, and so on.

However, the iPhone screen cannot mirror to iPad directly. Some third-party software is needed. So if you’d like to mirror your iPhone to an iPad, bring the photos, videos, and many other files you have on your iPhone to the large screen of your iPad. In the following guide, we take a look at how you do screen mirroring from iPhone to iPad.

How to Fix AirPlay Not Working

What is Apple AirPlay

AirPlay is what you use when you want to stream audio, and video and mirror the screen from iOS devices/Mac to an AirPlay-compatible device. It takes care of the background tasks and you only need to tap on an option to get the job done. The feature comes preloaded on all modern Apple devices including the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TVs.

How to Fix AirPlay Not Working

AirPlay works great most of the time. However, it does have its own share of issues. If you are facing any difficulties using the feature on your devices, the following fixes will help you sort out some of the common problems with AirPlay.

Fix 1. Same WiFi Network

You must make sure both of your devices are on the same WiFi network. If they are on different networks, you will not be able to use AirPlay with them.

Fix 2. Toggle WiFi and Bluetooth

Turn both WiFi and Bluetooth off on your devices. Then turn them on and see if that helps fix the issue.

Fix 3. Disconnect Multiple Devices

AirPlay only permits the use of one device at a time. If you are trying to connect multiple devices, do not do it.

Fix 4. Restart Your Router

It may be that your router has issues and so you are unable to use AirPlay. Small router glitches can be fixed by turning off and then turning on the router.

Fix 5. Update the Device’s OS

Older versions of the OS on your iPhone and iPad may cause issues with various features like AirPlay. Therefore, it is important that you keep your operating system version up to date on your devices.

Software Update

Software Update

Head into Settings > General > Software Update on your iOS device and get your device updated to the latest iOS version.

Fix 6. Disable Restrictions on Your Devices

Restrictions, as the word itself, says restrict what you can and cannot access on your devices. It may be that the feature is configured in such a way that it restricts the usage of AirPlay.

If that is the case, your best bet is to completely disable the feature on your iOS device. This can be done from Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy > Restrictions.

Fix 7. Restore Your Devices

If the issue still persists, you may be asked to restore your devices. You can do so using the iTunes app on your computer. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer, launch iTunes, select your device in the app, and click on Restore iPhone. Wait for it to finish restoring your device.

Also, keep in mind that mirroring the iPhone to an iPad without WiFi is not possible. So make sure to have an active WiFi connection to do the task.
