What if you want to display what’s on your iPhone or iPad onto your Mac’s screen? For that you’ll need a clever little utility that just works. It’s cleverly named AirServer.
AirPlay To Mac
AirServer is an AirPlay receiver for both the Mac and Windows PCs. That means your Mac (or PC) can receive AirPlay streams from your iPhone or iPad, just like Apple TV works on your television.
Why would you want to do stream what’s on iPhone or iPad to your Mac’s screen? If you don’t have Apple TV, the Mac becomes the nearest option.
AirServer simply receives what the iPhone or iPad send via AirPlay.
Once it’s setup on your Mac there’s little to no configuration to worry about. Tap the AirPlay button in an app on iPhone or iPad, and you get a selection of devices, including the Mac where AirServer is installed.
Tap the Mac’s name and the video stream begins and is displayed on the Mac’s screen. It’s just that easy.
Through AirPlay Mirroring you can play games from iPhone or iPad and use the Mac’s larger screen in perfect 1080p high definition resolution. The Mac’s larger screen makes games exciting again.
AirServer works with AirPlay to receive videos from YouTube, photo slides shows, and nearly any app which uses AirPlay. Attach a display to the Mac and have AirServer send the AirPlay video straight to the larger display, projector, or smart board.
This is a mostly set it and forget it app that brings added versatility to your Mac.
