If you want to mirror or stream content from your Mac, i Phone or i Pad to your TV or a wireless speaker, you will need to use Air Play, Apple’s software for wireless streaming.
If you are having problems getting your music or video to stream we have the solutions here.
From time to time a Mac OS or i OS software update might actually be the cause of issues with Air Play.
Prior to i OS 11 users were able to stream the contents of some apps from an i Phone or i Pad to a TV - allowing them to continue to use the i Phone or i Pad as a second screen.** On Mac computers with OS X Mountain Lion or Lion, use Air Port Utility 6.3.1.On computers with Snow Leopard or Leopard, use Airport Utility 5.6.1, which supports 802.11n models and the original Air Port Express.The new name makes sense, but only if you aren’t already familiar with Air Play as the name for streaming from one device to another.You could be forgiven for thinking that the new name suggests that the screen of your i Phone or i Pad will be mirrored on the Apple TV - meaning that your i Phone will be out of action while you stream the content to the TV.
