Want to show the whole screen of our iPhone 11/XS Max/XS/XR etc. or iPad/iPad Pro on bigger screens or play certain audio files on a better or louder speaker for example, on Mac or PC? AirPlay is born to fix problems of this kind. It is a protocol to share files among certain Apple products. With AirPlay, the mirroring function can be easily achieved. A free AirPlay server to mirror iPhone to Mac/PC at one go is introduced thereby.
DearMob 5KPlayer is the best yet free AirPlay mirroring software that can directly AirPlay mirror iPhone to Mac (macOS Big Sur or earlier)/Windows PC in seconds and does no negative influence to the file quality.
In spite of the seemed complex functions, the procedures to download and operate 5KPlayer are quite simple, which users can effortlessly grasp.
Step 1: Set the setting of AirPlay on Mac, specify a name and if you wish, password in Preferences. And swipe up the shortcut panel of iPhone to activate AirPlay. Password protection limits access and keeps unwanted presenters out.
Step 2: Free download, install and launch 5KPlayer accordingly on your Mac.
Step 3: Click the "DLNA AirPlay" button on the main UI of 5KPlayer to access the Settings windows, and turn on 5KPlayer's AirPlay function.
Step 4: Swipe up from the bottom of any screen if you have an iOS 11 iPhone, or swipe down from the upper-right corner of the screen if you have an iPhone with iOS 13 or later. Tap Screen Mirroring and then choose 5KPlayer to connect from the list.
Step 5: Now, do operations on your iPhone screen, and 5KPlayer will instantly receive the movements and display them.
Please note that only on the condition that the iPhone and Mac are under the same WiFi network can the mirroring be exercised.
Note: DearMob 5KPlayer, designed as the best free AirPlay server for Apple products, can do much more than just mirror audio and video files from iPhone to Mac/PC, it can also mirror audio and video files from iPad/iPad Pro/iPod to Mac/PC. What's more, 5KPlayer can mirror audio and video files of all the formats supported by AirPlay from Mac to Apple TV and AirPlay supported speakers.
