If you want more friends or family to enjoy the content on your iPad, mirroring your iPad to your PC may be a good option. Learn about how to do so in the article below!
iPad has a large enough screen for you to enjoy video content alone. However, if you want to share the content with more family members or friends, a larger screen may be helpful. In this case, screen sharing your iPad to a Windows 10 can help you!
In this article, you can learn about how to mirror an iPad to a PC, especially to Windows 10 PC with third-party software, such as AnyMirror, Reflector and LonelyScreen. You will also find answers to many frequently asked questions about using an iPad with a Windows 10 PC.
Now let’s go through them together below!
AnyMirror, as a powerful screen, mic, and camera mirroring tool, allows you to mirror your iPad screen to your Windows 10 (also to Mac) computer easily and also allows you to mirror iPad’s mics, and cameras to computer at the same time if you need. It provides you two options to connect your iPad to Windows 10 – via a USB cable stably and via Wi-Fi freely.
Now, install AnyMirror on your Windows 10 computer >Search “AnyMirror” in App Store and download it to your iPad.
Step 1. Launch AnyMirror on your computer and you will see the homepage as below.
Step 2. Please connect your iPad to the computer > Choose Screen Mirroring on your computer and tap on OK.
Step 3. Click the Start Broadcast button on your iPad.
Step 4. When your iPad is detected successfully by AnyMirror, then you can mirror any screen that you want and can also draw, record, and capture the mirrored screen by using the tools at the top-right corner.
If you have read our article about mirroring iPhone to PC with Reflector, you should be familiar with this process. Mirroring iPad to PC with Reflector is nothing different. If not, don’t worry! You can learn about how to do so with the steps below:
Now you can mirror your iPad to your Windows 10 PC with Reflector.
This step above is to use the free trial of “Reflector.” If you have already purchased a license from “Reflector”, click “I have a license key” and then enter the key into the software.
Although Reflector is a nice tool that you can use for screen-sharing, it is not a free service. After the free trial, you need to purchase a license on its website for $23.29.
Another software that you can use to stream your iPad is called LonelyScreen. As it says on the website, it serves as an “AirPlay Receiver” for your Apple devices. If you want to try this software out, follow the steps below:
When downloading LonelyScreen, your Windows Firewall may notify you that certain features of this app are blocked. You need to allow access for them on the network you use to enjoy the screen-sharing function. Although this doesn’t mean LonelyScreen has malware, you still need to think carefully before allowing access and using it. You may not want to use a public network to share your screen with LonelyScreen, as they may not be as safe as a private network.
You can download the same software to your laptop Windows 10 and use them there. They should also work well on laptops.
The answer is Yes. You can either connect an iPad to a Windows computer with a USB cable or connect it through Bluetooth. However, the screen-sharing feature doesn’t work with this simple connection.
LonelyScreen and Reflector still work! You can connect your iPad to your computer with a USB cable and launch either one of the software. Then follow the methods above to turn on the AirPlay feature on your iPad. Feel free to try a USB connection when you can’t connect your devices to the same Wi-Fi network, or the network is not stable.
Unfortunately, there’s no way to mirror your iPad to PC without downloading any software. If you feel more comfortable downloading apps to iPad, however, you can choose to download third-party apps designed for this purpose to your iPad instead of your PC. They should work similarly and allow you to stream your iPad.
If you have set up the screen-sharing apps with the methods mentioned above, feel free to pick a video, enjoy it on your PC, and share the content with your family and friends. Let us know if you still have any problems with it by commenting below.
