At WWDC 2024, Apple unveiled iOS 18 and macOS Sequoia. While AI features were the standout in iOS 18, iPhone mirroring took centre stage in the latest macOS Sequoia. Now, you can seamlessly mirror your iPhone to a Mac.

In this guide, we’ll explore how you can set up and start using iPhone Mirroring with macOS Sequoia, enhancing your workflow and entertainment with ease. But, before that, you might want to check out Apple Intelligence.

How to Mirror Your iPhone to a Mac

macOS Sequoia is scheduled for a fall 2024 release. Beta users can mirror their iPhones to a Mac now via the iPhone Mirroring app, while others must wait until the official launch.

To mirror your iPhone to a Mac, you need to open the iPhone Mirroring app which comes pre-installed in macOS Sequoia. Once it establishes a connection with your iPhone, you can view what’s on your phone and control it too.

It's important to note that certain prerequisites must be met for iPhone-to-Mac mirroring to function properly. Please review the list below to ensure your devices and connections comply with these requirements.

  • Ensure that your Mac is either equipped with Apple silicon or is an Intel-based Mac with a T2 Security Chip.
  • Make sure that both your iPhone and Mac are updated to the latest version of their respective OS to ensure compatibility.
  • Both devices should be signed into the same Apple ID with two-factor authentication enabled.
  • Turn on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on both your iPhone and Mac. They need to be near each other, but not necessarily connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Make sure your Mac is not using AirPlay or Sidecar at the time you want to mirror your iPhone.

If all the specified conditions are met and you've followed the provided steps accurately, you will be able to view and control your iPhone directly from your Mac, eliminating the need to physically handle your phone.
