Mirror your iPad

How to mirror your ipad on to your TV or overhead projector.
My earlier post showed you how to mirror your iPad or iPhone 4S on a TV or Projector using a VGA cable or composite cable. Another neat way to do this is by using Apple TV. Once you have your apple TV set up you can double click the home button on your iPad, now you will see your app switcher, if you scroll over to your play button you will see your air play icon. Select it and it will give your two options one is iPad and the other is Air play. Select air play and you should now see  your iPad mirrored on your TV or projector. You need to be running iOS 5 or higher.

What do you need for this to work?
Hardware

  • Apple TV $99/-
  • Wireless router – your home network

The inputs on your apple tv are RJ45 for ethernet, HDMI, optical audio, USB and power. So you need a HDMI out from your iPad to connect to your apple TV.
