Connect Chromecast devices to iPhone
You can connect Chromecast with your iPhone easily by following these steps:
Head to the Apple App Store, and then download the Google Home app via the App Store, but without running it.
After that, connect your Chromecast device to the TV screen via the HDMI port, and then create a new page in Google Home, and link it via your phone with your Google account and the home Wi-Fi network that you use to connect.
Then head to your Google Home app, search for your Chromecast device, and you may find a Wi-Fi network in the name of your device or you can connect it via Bluetooth.
And when you are done connecting the device with your iPhone, you can now use it easily.
