Airplay Mirroring On iPhone 4S...

How do you activate the mirroring feature of the iPhone 4S? I know on the iPad 2 when you double tap the home button and swipe left theres an airplay button and you switch on mirroring that way, but on the iPhone there is no such button.


Never mind I am an idiot; it's another swipe left...

I was trying to figure that out, too. I just read in another thread to make sure your Apple TV 2 has the latest software. I forgot to update my ATV2 so I'm doing it now. I hope that will give me the mirroring on/off toggle that I'm not seeing on my iPhone 4s, just yet.

I'll update this post once it's finished.

Edit: it works! Updating my ATV2 allows me to mirror. AWESOME FEATURE!!!
Just remember: double tap home button and swipe to the right two times (past the iPod controls). When you click on the AirPlay symbol you'll have the option to enable mirroring. If I weren't on my phone right now, I'd post screenshots.

Hope it works for you. Let me know.

iPad2 and iPhone 4S Mirroring on Apple TV

Hi All,

Wrote this blog piece on where to enable the Airplay Mirroring on your iOS5 devices. Make sure that the Apple TV and the iOS device is connected to the same WiFi network.
