Reflector App Icon

Reflector App IconReflector 1.6.3 for Mac is now available. Now supported iOS devices can mirror at 1080p when “Optimize For” is set to High-Resolution. Further more, this version improves Reflector and AirPlay stability. The trial period has also been improved. Previously, the trial was limited to one ten-minute mirroring session every ten minutes. Reflector 1.6.3 changes this period to seven days and adds a watermark. The Mac version can record your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad screen, the Windows PC one does not. The video screen capture works seamlessly on my Mac Book Pro 13”, mid 2012.

Reflecor 1.6.3 changes include:
