How to AirPlay video from your iPhone or iPad

  1. Swipe up from the bottom bezel onto the screen to bring up Control Center.
  2. Tap Screen Mirroring.
  3. Tap the device you’d like to AirPlay to.

If you’re not on the same Wi-Fi network as the Apple TV you’re targeting — for example, if you’re at a meeting — the Apple TV will display a code and require you to enter it on your iPhone or iPad before streaming over point-to-point Wi-Fi.
