Recently Zoom just released the best quarter results in the company history with strong guidance for the next quarter. We have seen Microsoft and Google targeting Zoom with their video call offerings such as Microsoft Teams and Google Meet.

Still Zoom is holding its ground with features like rich Whiteboard screen sharing, ease of use, the ability to share ipad or iPhone screen on Zoom using AirPlay on Windows and Mac.

During group video calls, the admin might want to showcase the current screen, file, present PowerPoint slide, etc. using screen sharing. It makes the whole conversation hassle-free. You can also share the iPhone and iPad screen directly to Zoom video calls.

The feature can be useful when you want to showcase something on iPhone or iPad screen to Zoom participants. I wanted to show my dad some of the options to change on his iPhone to fix the issue. I used the iPhone screen sharing on Zoom and showed him the way to reset the iPhone to fix the problem. That’s one of the use cases of iPhone/iPad screen sharing on Zoom.

In this post, I will guide you on how to share iPhone or iPad screen on a Zoom meeting. Let’s get started.

Though USB cable can be reliable, going Wireless on a slow internet connection might have some setbacks. Also, a loose or faulty cable might interrupt the screen sharing experience.

You can follow the same steps on the iPad to share the iPad screen with the Zoom participants.

Here is how we use it among the team members. Often, I share the iPhone/iPad screen using AirPlay and show a custom image or something odd that I found. It’s much better than screen recording and then sharing it over a project management app. The function also makes the whole meeting seamless and smooth.


The iPhone/iPad screen sharing feature lets you do more. You can annotate on the iPhone/iPad display for better presentations. From the toolbar above, tap on the Annotate to open the editing menu. It becomes easier for a presenter to showcase things.

Draw: The draw menu consists of a bunch of shapes for you to pick. You can use an arrow, circle, rectangle, and other tools from the draw menu to annotate on the iPhone screen.

Text and Format Menu: Zoom allows you to add text on the iPhone/iPad screen. You can also change text color, size, add bold or italic effect to it.

Apart from that, you can use the undo, redo, and clear option to make the changes. The save button is a must-have for everyone. After brainstorming ideas with team members, you should save the current screen to the PC. You can hit save to store the current screen as an image to the Zoom folder on the device.

Thankfully, Zoom also offers a couple of security options. During the live video call, you can tap on the Security button at the top of the screen share window and disable Annotate on Shared Content from the Allow Participants to the menu. It will prevent other members from annotating on the shared screen in Zoom.


When it comes to Screen Sharing, Zoom has taken the lead from Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and others. I like how Zoom allows the flexibility to share screen using various options such as Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, second camera, files, and more
