Zoom: iOS Screen Sharing

You can use the Zoom mobile app to share your entire screen on an iPhone or iPad (as long as you are running iOS 11 or higher). You can download the free Zoom mobile app in the Apple App Store.

General Information

  • You cannot annotate when sharing your screen via iOS.
    • If you need to annotate or share the entire screen on an older version of iOS, you can do so if you have a computer nearby using the Zoom desktop client for Mac or PC in conjunction with Airplay, or the Zoom desktop client for Mac and wired sharing. Learn more about Airplay and Wired Sharing.
  • Everything on your screen including notifications will be recorded.
    • Enable Do Not Disturb on your device to prevent unexpected notifications.
  • If you enable your microphone before or during your screen share, it will stay enabled after you end the screen share. 
    • Turn your microphone off after the screen share ends if you no longer want it enabled.
