If you have an Apple N kit, be sure to impress Apple’s screen-casting technology, Airplay. Apple Airplay lets one Apple device display the contents of another, such as a Mac with a large screen, so the iPhone and iPad can use Airplay to plug the screen on the Mac’ screen.
In some cases, this is very convenient, for example, a Japanese drama app is only released on a mobile platform, want to see the film on the big screen, put it on the screen on the Mac, the experience is much better. The Airplay is stable and smooth, making it one of Apple’s only stunts.
Very powerful Airplay
However, with large-screen Macs, Apple TV and other desktop, living room Apple device penetration, far less than the iPhone, iPad and other mobile devices, more users are using the Windows PC plus iPhone, iPad combination. How do I use Airplay on my Windows PC? Let’s share a way for everyone.
We need to use a third-party software. The software, called Airplay Receiver for windows, is an open source tool that lets you click on the link below to see its project on GitHub.

On the page, download it directly.
Once the download is complete, the compressed package is unzipped and the Apple Bonjour broadcast service in the compressed package needs to be installed first, and Bonjour64.MSI or Bonjour.msi in the catalog will be installed (see if the operating system is 64 bits).
Install Bonjour first
Next, run the “win-airplay.exe” directly in the catalog to make sure your computer is in the same local area network as your iPhone and iPad, so you can use Airplay screen service on your PC.
Note that when using, Windows’ DPI zoom is best set to 100%, otherwise the screen may not be fully displayed. You can set the system’s global DPI scaling to 100% in Windows 10 settings.
Win10’s DPI zoom is set to 100%
However, this also has an impact on other applications, you can also right-click “win-airplay.exe”, in the “compatibility” item of Properties, find “Change high DPI settings”, and then let the scaling execute un “application” in “High DPI Zoom Override”.
You can set the DPI scale of this software separately, which is more convenient
Turn on your iPhone, iPad, call out the drop-down menu and see the Airplay cast option Screen Mirror.
IPad, for example, find “Screen Image” in the drop-down menu
Choose “Win-Airplay” to get the iPhone and iPad pictures to appear on your PC!
Connect to “Win-Airplay”
The iPad’s image is projected onto the PC, which is the effect on the PC
The following motion picture shows the effect, or very good, slightly framed.
With Task Manager, you know that the bandwidth required for the cast screen is more than 10M, so make sure that the WiFi signal is good.
The need for bandwidth
Overall, this is a really good tool. If you also want your PC to be the second screen on your iPhone and iPad, try it!
