To stop mirroring your iPhone from Mac, you can simply right-click your iPhone device icon in the Dock at the bottom of the Mac screen and click "Quit" to turn off the iPhone Mirroring mode right now.

How to Add TV to Screen Mirroring iPhone

Screen Mirroring is different from iPhone Mirroring. Screen mirroring allows you to wirelessly display the screen of one device, such as a smartphone, tablet, or computer, onto another display device, such as a TV.

To add a TV to screen mirroring on an iPhone, you can use AirPlay, a feature that allows you to wirelessly stream content from your iPhone to an Apple TV or a compatible smart TV. Make sure your TV supports AirPlay or is an Apple TV. Ensure that your iPhone and the TV you want to mirror are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Step 1. On your iPhone Home Screen, swipe down from the top right corner to open the Control Center.

Step 2. Tap the Screen Mirroring icon (a rectangle with a triangle at the bottom) to bring up a list of available devices.

Step 3. From the list, select your TV or Apple TV. You may be prompted to enter a code that appears on your TV screen.

Step 4. Once connected, your iPhone screen should start mirroring on the TV. You can now view your iPhone's screen on the larger display.

Step 5. To stop screen mirroring, simply tap the Screen Mirroring icon from the Control Center and select "Stop Mirroring" on your iPhone.
