    LG Smart TV (WebOS) Screen Mirroring - iPhone

    NOTE: 2018 and earlier LG Smart TVs do not allow screen mirroring directly from iPhones. Select 2019 LG TV models (OLED B9, C9, E9, W9, R9, Z9 series, NanoCell SM9X/SM8X, and UHD UM7X series) with Apple AirPlay 2 support allow screen mirroring directly from iPhones.

    If you have an LG smart TV that is not AirPlay 2 compatible, possible workarounds include:

    1. Third-Party Apps: certain apps allow screen mirroring from an iPhone to an LG Smart TV, including Video and TV Cast, Airbeam, Airmore, and Mirror from LG Smart TV Streamer Cast. LG doesn't guarantee third-party screen mirroring apps will work on all LG Smart TVs (some of these apps may also be used with Android phones).
    2. Indirect screen mirroring: this can be done from an iPhone to an Apple TV device, which in turn passes the mirrored content to an LG TV via an HDMI connection.
