Maybe you and your friends are hanging in your place and suddenly you made a plan to watch a Netflix show. The problem is the movie is on your iPhone. Well, you don’t have to worry about the small screen anymore. Cause you can watch it together in your Home Theatre by connecting the device into the system.

To connect an iPhone or an IOS device to your Home Theatre you need to have an Audio Visual (A/V) receiver connected to your system. There are several ways to connect your IOS device to your home theatre via an A/V receiver. For example, you can connect your iPhone by using 

  • An HDMI connector
  • Or with an AUX Adapter
  • Or with Airplay on an Apple TV.

The most used method to connect an iPhone to an A/V receiver is by using HDMI. To connect both Audio and Video to your Home Theatre with a single connection, HDMI is considered one of the best options available at this time. 

So, how can you do that? Don’t worry,  just follow the steps.

Connecting with HDMI

Almost all the recent days A/V receivers contain multiple HDMI ports to connect various devices. But there is a problem, your iPhone certainly doesn’t contain an HDMI output port. Well in that case what you need to do is, to buy a Lightning Digital AV Adapter.

You can also use a third-party product, it’s your choice. 

I am guessing that you have your  Lightning Digital AV Adapter or any other cord. Now it’s time to connect your IOS device to the A/V receiver. One more thing, you will also be needing an HDMI cable as well. You can use any standard HDMI cable.


  • Plug the AV adapter into your iPhone or IOS device 
  • Insert one end of the HDMI cable into the adapter, and the other end into the AV receiver.
  • When plugging the HDMI cable into the AV receiver, just make sure that you’re using the MHL (mobile high-definition link) HDMI port on the receiver.

With the HDMI cable connected, your iPhone’s content will be mirrored to the connected device. Video will be displayed at a maximum Full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution. It’s the showtime now, enjoy!
