How to use AirPlay on an iPad? – Guide 2022

Using AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream content from your iPad to a nearby television, streaming media player, or Mac. You only need to connect your iPad to the same WiFi network as the compatible device you wish to stream to. In addition to streaming photos and videos, you can also mirror the entire iPad display based on your needs.

Streaming from an iPad to a TV using AirPlay

Ensure that you are connected to the same WiFi network as the AirPlay-compatible device you want to stream to.

Launch the app

  • Press the AirPlay button. By default, you’ll find it by tapping the Share icon first, but you may need to explore a bit – there is no single standard place where all developers place the AirPlay button.
  • Select the AirPlay-compatible device you want to stream to from the dropdown menu.
  • If asked, the code that appears on the TV or other device should be entered onto your iPad.
  • You should see the video on the screen to which you are streaming.
  • By tapping the AirPlay or Share button and choosing Turn off AirPlay, you can end your AirPlay session.
