The Apple TV 2 can be used for many things such as streaming music, photos, watching Netflix, YouTube, and much more. But did you know it can also be used as a bigger display for your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 wirelessly?! With the AirPlay feature, you can display everything you do on your iDevice such as games, documents, videos, etc. This can be really helpful when giving presentations at meetings or the classroom. [Watch video here for full demo]

To take advantage of this feature, you will need the following:

  • Apple TV 2
  • iPhone 4S or iPad 2 [with iOS 5 or later]
  • Both iPhone 4S/iPad 2 & Apple TV 2 connected to the same WiFi connection

[STEP 2]
