Howdy!

I used a Apple Lighting-to-HDMI adapter to mirror from my iPhone or IPad before going to Apple TV.
Yes it mirrored everything when connected.

So far the only thing it won't mirror that I have found is ESPN. Have no problem with Nexflix, Disney+ and Hulu. I will try Amazon Prime and Roku and report back later.

I use Appletv 4K. Anything I can watch on my iPhone you can mirror to your tv. No adapter required.
Swipe up, touch mirror and your done.

My year-old Lenovo ideapad (laptop) will cast directly to a smart TV with that function. Just did it at our son and daughter-in-law's over Thanksgiving.

Does it do it via WiFi or Bluetooth?

My guess is wifi as it streams HD. But no router or wifi required. Just iPhone and Appletv.

This is more of a question rather than an answer...but why can't you just get a cheap router and establish a wifi network? You don't really need internet access.
