Use Your iPad or iPhone to Share with a Whiteboard 

You can make your iPhone or iPad work like an extension for a Zoom meeting. It allows for screen recording and real-time annotation if there is an online class going on. With Zoom, you can wirelessly share both PC (personal computer) and Mac with the help of iOS Screen Mirroring. Alternatively, you can attach your Mac computer to your iOS device with a cable to share. Or you can opt to share an entire iOS device screen with the use of the Screen Sharing feature of iOS 11 or later versions.  


Technical requirements for Screen Mirroring 

  • Zoom client for Windows 3.5.27094.0918 or later or Mac computer
  • The iOS device and the computer should be on the same network.
  • Install the iPhone/iPad* sharing plug-in. 
  • iPhone 4 or the later versions; iPad and iPad mini, you can go for 4th generation or later releases.
