Zoom allows for iOS screen sharing from iPhone and iPad, using the Zoom desktop client. You can share wirelessly for both Mac and PC, utilizing iOS Screen Mirroring, or you can connect your iOS device to your Mac computer with a cable to share.

You can also share your entire iOS device screen using Screen Recording on iOS 11 or later. Learn more.

Notes:

  • Some types of videos cannot be shared when using Screen Mirroring.
