How to stream content from an iPhone or iPad to an Apple TV with AirPlay

Ever wish you could take a video from your iPhone or iPad and watch it on your big screen TV? Well, with AirPlay and an Apple TV you can! Many apps have built-in AirPlay buttons but, sadly, they're often in different shapes, sizes, and places. Luckily, Control Center has an AirPlay button as well. That makes it easy to find and easy to use!

How to use Control Center to turn on AirPlay

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen on your iPhone or iPad to reveal Control Center.
  2. Tap on AirPlay.
  3. Choose your Apple TV. If you don't see it, make sure your Apple TV and iPhone or iPad are on the same wireless network.
  4. Swipe down to close out Control Center.

Any video that supports AirPlay should now appear on your Apple TV.
