Mirroring an image from a smartphone screen to a computer or vice versa is a rather interesting feature. Of course, not everyone will need it, but for many this tool will be needed to perform certain work. There is an excellent AirPlay protocol for connecting iPhone with Mac, which allows you to transfer a picture without problems. But Microsoft does not support this technology by default, so you will have to look for third-party applications to work with Windows.
