Mirror iPhone To Roku TV

Open Control Center on your iPhone

The first step is to open the control center and enable screen mirroring your iPhone to the Roku device. Once the control center is opened, tap the Screen Mirroring button and select your Roku device from the pop-up list. You will be asked for a code. Simply enter the code that appears on your TV into your iPhone and tap OK. 

For iPhone X and later phones, just swipe down from the top-right corner of your screen to open the control center. For iPhone 8 or earlier, swipe from the bottom of your screen. The screen mirroring option is the icon with two rectangles stacked on top of each other. 

Select Your Roku Device

Once you see your Roku device on the pop-up list, tap on it. 

If the Roku device is not displaying on the pop-up lists, make sure that it is  turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your iPhone. To double check which WiFi network your Roku device is connected to,  just go to Settings > Network > About on your Roku device. To change the  WiFi network on the Roku device, go to Settings > Network > Set up connection and select Wireless. You may use your Roku remote to do this. 

Enter the Code 

The next step is to enter the code that appears on your TV into your iPhone and tap OK. Usually, the code is a 4-digit number that’s displayed on the screen of your Roku TV. 

Tap OK

To finalize the screen mirroring mode, simply tap on OK. If you want to stop the screen mirroring mode on iPhone to Roku, simply press the Home button on your Roku remote. You can also do this on your iPhone by going back to the Control Center on your iPhone screen, select Screen Mirroring, and then tap Stop Mirroring.
