AirPlay lets you stream video and mirror your display from iPhone,iPad, or MacBook to Apple or Smart TV. It also lets you stream audio to Apple TV and any compatible speakers, including those connected to an AirPort Express router. If you’re on the same Wi-Fi network, AirPlay easily connects and starts streaming. If you’re not on the same network, AirPlay will use point-to-point Wi-Fi to stream.
AirPlay is a great way to share content among iOS devices onto Apple or smart TVs. You can share music, photos, videos, or just mirror your entire computer screen on a display. Most Apple devices have AirPlay and Screen Mirroring options easily accessible via Settings.
How does AirPlay work?
The first thing you should know is that AirPlay is not Bluetooth, even if Airplay can also send audio streams through a traditional local network. While Bluetooth compresses the audio stream transmission, AirPlay keeps the file’s original quality. Also, Bluetooth’s operating range is limited to 30 meters; AirPlay’s range can be as wide as your Wi-Fi network. And, at the last, Bluetooth can interact with only one device at a time, while AirPlay is able to send signals to several receivers at the same time.
All these benefits make AirPlay better choice to create a single home multimedia system. There are several analogs but they require special devices for streaming or expensive receivers with the support of AirPlay technology. In short, Apple AirPlay makes it easy to view images, enjoy your favourite games, or listen to music directly from your TV.
How to turn on AirPlay on a Mac:
1. First, make sure your Mac is connected to the same Wi-Fi network your Apple or smart TV is.
2. Next, find the video you want to display on AirPlay — either on Safari, Quickplayers etc.
3. Open System Preferences.
4. Find the icon for “Displays” — which looks like a computer monitor.
5. In the Display menu, make sure you have AirPlay on. Do this by using the two blue arrows to access the drop-down menu.
6. Make sure the box where it says “Show mirroring options in the menu bar when available” is checked, too.
7. Next, find the AirPlay icon in the upper menu bar — it looks like a computer monitor with an arrow at the bottom.
8. Select your smart or Apple TV from the drop-down menu. To stop AirPlay, click the same button and select “Turn off AirPlay.”

Let's Sea What Some Have To Say
Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out.
My husband and I just got both of our iPhones repaired at the Shirley location. We couldn't be more happy. Our iPhones look and feel brand new!! Both technicians, Ali and Marisol, are wonderful, knowledgeable, professional and caring! Being, that we walked into the store fifteen before eight we were afraid that we would have to leave our iPhones there until tomorrow.
My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour.
