There could be several reasons why Netflix wouldn’t work. Here we are going to explore most of those issues.
Your HDMI cable is not compliant with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) : It is a system designed to protect copyrighted content when it moves between one device to another. So, HDCP stops illegal copying of your Netflix content when it’s being transferred from your iPhone to the projector via an HDMI cable. Therefore, you need to make sure that your HDMI cable, adapter, and projector’s HDMI port are HDCP compliant.
The Netflix app is not up-to-date : This could possibly be why your projector isn’t playing Netflix from your iPhone. So, you need to update the app or delete and re-install the app.
The HDMI cable or adapter is loosely connected : Sometimes loose connections or frayed cables may be prevented from sending signals from your iPhone to your projector.
Check your internet connection : Poor or unstable internet connection will disrupt your Netflix viewing experience from your iPhone to the projector. So, ensure that you have a very stable WiFi connection.
