Mirroring your device’s screen on your Mac can be really useful if you want to demo some work or show how to recreate a bug.
This tutorial will show you how to mirror physical iOS and Android devices on your Mac while recording your screen. We will use Quicktime for mirroring iOS devices. While Android we will use a tool called Vysor (it has free and paid versions) for mirroring.
Trust your Mac
Plug your device into your Mac. On your device you should now see this a dialog asking you to trust your MacBook.
Return to your Mac and open Quicktime
File -> New Movie Recording -> select the dropdown to the right of the record button -> select your device as the camera
Your iOS screen should now appear on your Mac 🙂
Allow USB Debugging
Plug your device into your Mac. You should now be prompted to “Allow USB debugging”.
Return to you mac. Please install Vysor before continuing
Once installed, open Vysor. After you’ve connected your device and allowed USB debugging, you should see your device appear at the top the Vysor screen. Tap the ‘View’ button
You should now see your device appear on your Mac!
