“The latest Apple TV may be two years old, but it still makes a good gift idea,” Christina Bonnington reports for Wired. “If you subscribe to Apple’s ecosystem, the Apple TV still makes a lot of sense because of its tie-ins to iOS, and because of AirPlay mirroring. But first you’ve got to get things configured.”
“[Once] your Apple TV is set up, you can use AirPlay to stream photos, videos, or music from your iOS device (or iTunes on your Mac) to your TV. Make sure your iOS device and the Apple TV are on the same Wi-Fi network, then swipe up from the bottom of the screen to get to Control Center,” Bonnington reports. “Tap the AirPlay button, then select the device you want to AirPlay to: For photos, video, or music, you can select the Apple TV, which will have a TV icon next to it; for music, you can also just select speakers if you have AirPlay-enabled speakers in your home.”
