    How to connect iPhone to TV via WiFi

    I was over at someones house the other day and he had an Android phone and was able to connect to his TV via WiFi to show pictures and other things on his phone. He said he was using Chrome something or other.

    I have an iPhone 5s and would like to know what is out there that will allow me to do the same thing and is relatively easy to hookup and use?

    Thanks for your help,

    Harry

    Connect With HDMI
    Plug the adapter into your device's 30-pin iPod connector. Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.) one end of an HDMI cable into the HDMI port of the adapter, and the other end into an available HDMI port on your TV.
    Switch your TV to the appropriate HDMI input.

    Also...


    Connect With Composite AV

    If your TV doesn’t support HDMI, or if it doesn’t have an available connection, you can link your device to the set through an analog connection, using an Apple Composite AV cable.

    Plug the adapter into your device’s 30-pin iPod connector.
    Plug the yellow video cable at the end of the adapter into an available analog video port on your TV.
    Plug the red and white audio cables at the end of the adapter into the red and white audio ports corresponding to the yellow video input on your TV.
    Tune your TV to the appropriate composite video input. The display won’t be mirrored, but it will show photos and videos in supported apps once you start playing them on the device.

    And...

    Hi sparkyscott21,

    Thanks for your reply. I just found out the item my neighbor is using is called "Chromecast". What do you think of that product?

    Hi auggie53,

    I've been reading about Apple TV and it looks like the way I will go. I have the iPhone and Mac's so the Apple product will fit right in.

    Thanks to all for your help,

    Harry
