Part 3: Why is screen mirroring not in full screen on Apple TV?

You might have seen videos and images not covering the whole screen of the TV. There are black bars on the sides.

The issue is common, and it does not depend on the app you are using. There are many applications for mirroring your phones to TV, but the full-screen feature does not depend on the app. It depends on the size and the aspect ratio of your TV and the device/media you are mirroring.

For instance, the image/video is vertical and has a size 1080 x 1920 and an aspect ratio of 9:16. However, TVs commonly have an aspect ratio of 16:9. The resolution could be 1920 x 1080, 2048 x 1080 (2K), 3840 x 2160 (4K), etc. All these resolutions have an aspect ratio of 16:9. Thus, if you try to mirror an image/video of a 9:16 aspect ratio on a TV having a 16:9 aspect ratio, you will see black bars on the sides. The image/video will only cover the middle part of the screen.

On YouTube, you will find videos having a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is why the videos cover the whole screen of almost all TVs. Thus, you need to take care of the aspect ratio or size to see the full screen while mirroring.
