How To Mirror an iPad to a Firestick

If you want to view your iPad content on a big screen but don’t have Apple TV, don’t worry, you still can. Using a third-party app like AirPlay receiver “AirScreen,” you can connect your iPad to your Firestick for seamless viewing.

How To Mirror an iPad to a Firestick

In this article, we’ll take you through the steps to set this up. Plus, we’ll go over creating the same set-up when you don’t have a Wi-Fi connection.

Mirror an iPad to a Firestick

Before we get started mirroring your iPad to your Fire TV using the free Amazon Airplay receiver app “AirScreen,” ensure the following:

  • Your iPad and Fire TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Your iPad has iOS 9 or above installed.

You’ll also need to make sure that “AirScreen” is installed on your Fire TV. Here’s how to install it:

  1. Ensure your Fire TV is connected to the internet.
  2. Go to the home screen.
  3. On your remote, press right until you get to “Apps.”
  4. Long press on your remote to access “Apps,” then use the directional pad to find the AirScreen app.
  5. With the app highlighted, press the center button of the pad to choose the app.
  6. Select “Get” and press the center button again.

Once you have the app installed, you can start mirroring your iPad. Check out the steps below to begin mirroring to your Fire TV:

  1. Open the AirScreen app.
  2. Since it’s the first time using the app, you’ll be prompted to scan a QR code to connect to your iPad.
  3. When prompted, select “Open in Chrome.”
  4. You’ll be prompted to start the “Screen Mirroring” feature on your iPad.
  5. Swipe down to open the “Control Center” on your iPad, then select “Screen Mirroring.”
  6. Choose to start mirroring your iPad screen.

Your iPad screen will now display on your Fire TV.

Mirror an iPad to a Firestick Without Wi-Fi

Next, we’ll discuss two options to mirror your iPad content on your Fire TV without a Wi-Fi connection.

Option 1: Use an HDMI Cable

The easiest way to mirror without a Wi-Fi connection is to plug a digital AV lightning adapter into your iPad then connect to your TV via HDMI cable. These adapters can be expensive; however, they’re an investment, especially if you travel regularly.

Option 2: Use AirPlay Peer-to-Peer Feature

This feature uses Bluetooth to pair your iPad to your Fire TV:

  1. Ensure your iPad and Fire TV are disconnected from the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi enabled.
  2. Pair your iPad with your Firestick via Bluetooth.
  3. Once a connection is established, you should be able to see your Fire TV appear on your iPad’s select screen. You may need to restart both devices to get it working.

Some third-party apps like Netflix won’t work over this set-up, so it’s probably better to go for the HDMI connection option if possible.

Mirroring Your iPad

Though the iPad can’t be directly mirrored onto your Firestick TV, there are workarounds available. Installing a third-party app like “AirScreen” onto your Firestick will act as an intermediary between the devices to facilitate a seamless TV projection.

Also, for the times when your internet connection is super low, or you have none at all, you can connect your iPad to your Firestick TV using an AV lightning adapter and HDMI cable. This method is more stable than using AirPlay’s peer-to-peer feature via Bluetooth.
