What Is AirPlay And What Is It For?

AirPlay, developed by Apple Inc., allows users to  stream audios, videos, and photos from their iTunes library or iOS devices to Wi-Fi-connected, compatible devices such as computers, speakers, and stereo components. With it, you can not only enjoy your own wireless home audio system, but also share your music with other speakers. However, AirPlay only enables you to stream audios. For videos you want to share, AirPlay Mirroring is required.

AirPlay Mirroring (also called Screen Mirroring for iOS 11) enables users to share AirPlay-compatible iOS screen and display videos, games, or other contents on Apple TV. Try to imagine how annoying it is when you want to share something on that screen with a group of people on a iPhone 8/7 screen and they need to huddle themselves very close. But with the AirPlay Mirroring, you can easily mirror your iPhone screen to a bigger device.

But AirPlay isn't full-featured enough to mirror iOS screen on Windows 10/8/7. If you want to display iPhone/iPad screen to Windows PC, it is not complicated and all you need is an iOS screen recorder. Please continue to read and you will find out how to do on your iOS 11, iOS 10 and even iOS 9 or the former.
