Sharing your iOS screen from the Zoom mobile app

Last Updated:

When you are in a meeting on the Zoom mobile app for iOS, you can share your entire screen on a device running iOS 11 or higher to share apps and other content.

You cannot annotate when sharing your entire screen via iOS. If you need to annotate or share the entire screen on an older version of iOS, you can share using screen mirroring on the Zoom desktop client for macOS or Windows, or through wired sharing on the Zoom desktop client for macOS devices.

Prerequisites for sharing your screen from your iOS device

  • iOS 11 or higher
  • Zoom mobile app for iOS, version 4.1.18611.1228 or higher

How to start sharing your iOS screen in a meeting

Before starting a screen share, enable Do Not Disturb on your device to prevent unexpected notifications from appearing on your screen while you're sharing it.

  1. Start or join a Zoom meeting from your iPhone or iPad.
  2. In the meeting controls toolbar, tap Share Content.
  3. Tap Screen.
  4. Tap Microphone Off/Microphone On to enable or disable device audio with the screen share. When Microphone On is displayed, your device's audio will be shared.
  5. Tap Start Broadcast.
    A 3 second countdown will begin, then your screen will start sharing.
  6. Swipe up or press the home button to navigate away from the broadcast controls and share the content on your screen.
  7. (Optional) Swipe the meeting thumbnail towards the edge of the screen to hide it so you can share your full screen.

How to share your device audio during a screen share

After you start the broadcast, you can include the device audio with the screen share by doing one of the following:

  • If you haven't navigated away from the initial Screen Broadcast, tap Microphone Off/Microphone On to enable or disable device audio with the screen share. When Microphone On is displayed, your device's audio will be shared.
  • If you've navigated away from broadcasting controls, open the Zoom mobile app and tap Share Device Audio

Note: There may be a brief delay in the audio that other meeting participants hear.

How to stop sharing your iOS screen in a meeting

You can stop sharing your iOS screen by doing one of the following:

  • Open the Zoom mobile app, then tap Stop Share.
  • Click the red button in the top-left corner of the screen (where the time is displayed), and tap Stop.

When you stop sharing your screen, you will be directed back to the Zoom meeting.
