If you plan to watch the latest episodes on Netflix from your iPhone with the help of a projector but don’t know how the process works, then this guide is for you.
But how do these devices work? I have written the guide the easiest way possible, which will take less setup time, and you can also project on a bigger screen.
How to Play Netflix on a Projector From iPhone
Below we have explained the two methods that are the most effective. But there is one point you should know Netflix has stopped supporting Airplay, so you cannot stream anything using this method.
You can also use and connect Apple TV directly to your projector if you don’t want to connect using the below methods.
Using Streaming Device
In this method, you must connect Roku, Google Chromecast, or other streaming devices to play Netflix from your iPhone.
This method is perfect for people who do not want to use wires like (an HDMI cable) while playing movies or tv shows on their iPhone on a projector.
- First, I assume you already have a streaming device like Roku, Chromecast, or other devices that support Netflix.
- Now it’s time to download Netflix app on your iPhone (if it’s not installed) and open it.
- “I am going with the Roku method.”
- So connect the Roku device to the projector at the back of the HDMI port.
- Play your favorite movie or show on the iPhone.
- After that, click on the “Cast” icon in the screen’s top right corner.
- Now select Roku from the list of available devices if other connections are available.
- That’s it, your movie will appear on the projector screen.
Using A HDMI Lighting Cable?
This is another method where you will require an HDMI cable to connect your iPhone to the projector.
The method is easy to follow, but you must purchase the Apple HDMI connector to connect the projector stream from your iPhone. Let’s begin the process below.
1). Connect the HDMI lightning adapter to your iPhone.
2). Now, take the HDMI cable and connect it to the HDMI adapter.
3). On the other end, connect to your projector.
4). You will see a connecting icon on your iPhone. It means your iPhone is successfully connected to a projector.
5). Now open Netflix from your iOS device and play anything on a bigger screen or wall from the projector.
What should I do if my projector does not have an HDMI port?
In this case, you will need a third-party HDMI connector to connect your projector VGA port to Apple lightning HDMI cable.
I have used this method on my older projection system, and the quality I was getting was average compared to the latest models with HDMI ports.
Can I use a firetv stick in place of Roku to stream Netflix from my iPhone?
Yes, you can even use a third-party streaming device with a screen mirroring option, which will help you watch Netflix on a projector from iPhone.
I am not getting anything on the screen still iPhone shows a successful connection.
This problem happened to me when everything was set up correctly, and I was struggling to find out what is the problem when everything was connected right.
Then I find the cable I was using was not the original one and was also broken from one end.
As soon I replace it with a new one, the screen starts showing the content from Netflix.
Can I watch Netflix without iPhone?
Yes, you can watch Netflix without iPhone, even without a need for streaming devices also. In current models, you don’t need to connect anything due to their inbuilt operating software, which can play Netflix easily.
I hope with the above, you will know how to play Netflix on a projector from iPhone, letting you stream your favorite movie on a bigger screen.
If you don’t want to do all the above processes to watch Netflix, I suggest you simply connect a streaming device with a projector and stream without using an iPhone.
But still, if it’s necessary to use, check your projector model and then go with the above method, which will be applicable to connect the iPhone to watch Netflix.
