How to duplicate the screen of your iPhone on your Mac or PC


Today we will analyze an alternative that we find to duplicate the screen of your iPhone in a computer , both Mac and PC , and best of all is that it is free .
A few weeks ago we told you how to record the screen of your iPhone  with Quickime , an excellent free alternative and that works really well. And in this article we will see an alternative that will also be very useful, and unlike the previous example, does not require cables and is compatible with Mac and PC.

What do I need to duplicate the screen of my iPhone or iPad on a computer?

First we need an application called LonelyScreen , it is completely free and there is a version for Mac and PC . 
As a second requirement, you will need to be connected to the same WiFi network on your computer and your iDevice.

How to duplicate the screen?

If you already have LonelyScreen installed on your computer and you are connected to the same WiFi network, all you need to do is launch the application. 
As you will see its interface is extremely simple and practically requires no adjustment.

LonelyScreen offers us very few adjustments, although we can highlight 3 of them:
  • Device name: If you want to assign a name to the device that will display the screen of your iPhone or iPad, you can do so easily. Something very useful if you have more than one computer and you want to choose which one to send the screen of your iDevice.
  • Record button: Something that offers LonelyScreen is the possibility of recording a video of the screen of your device, once connected you can start the recording by pressing the red button.
  • Video Container Folder: Will show you the location of the videos you have recorded.
You already know the simple interface of LonelyScren, now only duplicate the screen of your device. For this you follow these simple steps:
  1. Start LonelyScreen on your computer
  2. Go to your iPhone or iPad and slide the control panel up and you will see the option "AirPlay Duplication", press there and choose the computer to which you want to connect (you will see the name you have previously chosen).

What is the purpose of duplicating your iDevice screen on a computer?

There are many reasons why viewing your device's screen on a computer can be useful. 
For example, you can share pictures, videos, games and more with other people. 
You can also make a video showing some function of your iPhone , or highlight a problem you are having and you want to share it with some technical support. 
Whatever the case, using this simple application you can do all this in a simple way.

Conclusion

The good thing about LonelyScreen

As we said before, its ease of use makes this application an excellent tool to see the screen of your device reflected in a computer. It is also free , something very important if we take into account some alternatives that we find in the market as Reflector , which has a cost of $ 14.99. 
Neither do you require any type of cable or accessory , just be connected to the same WiFi network.

The Bad of LonelyScreen

Some features that may prove to be positive for some may be a turning point for others, and an example of this is their simplicity. Being so simple and lacking in settings, makes it a bit short compared to other alternatives. 
Another negative point is that the quality of the image is not the best, being more than enough to see some photos but not enough to see a video in high quality.
There are several alternatives to mirror your device's display on a computer, and I hope LonelyScreen will be of great help to you. 
If you know any other alternative and you want to share it, I invite you to leave it in the comments.
