Smartphones have become actual power machines stuffed into a case that fits your hand.
However, what’s all that power worth if you can’t actually enjoy it? The newly released iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are able to stream FullHD and 4K media directly onto their screens.
When it comes to high definition formats, 5.5 inches are no longer enough. This is why you will want to mirror the screen of your iPhone 8/8 Plus to a larger TV Screen.
You can actually wirelessly connect your iPhone 8 to an Apple TV by following a few simple steps that we’ve listed below.
