What is AirPlay?

AirPlay allows you to stream photos, video and music from your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad to your HDTV, Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation) and speakers. Users can also mirror any content that is currently showing on their device's display, including web pages, apps, spreadsheets and more. This also allows users to turn their iOS device into a video game controller by streaming games to their TV.

Peer-to-peer AirPlay allows visitors easy access to your Apple TV without the need to connect to your Wi-Fi network.

AirPlay works with the iPhone 4 or later, iPad or iPad mini and iPod touch (4th generation or later). Peer-to-peer AirPlay requires iOS 7.0 and the iPhone 5 or later, iPad mini or iPad (4th generation or later) and iPod touch (5th generation or later).

AirPlay can be enabled in Control Center of your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth need to be turned on for peer-to-peer AirPlay to work, and your device needs to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the device you want to stream to for basic AirPlay to work.
