I don't know exactly when it happened but I just noticed it today after updating iTunes. The Airplay icon is missing when swiping left in the running apps list on both my iPhone 4 and my wife's iPad 2 (but both used to work). Both still work when using an app that has Airplay built-in. Has anybody else noticed this or know of a fix?

Just a silly question, but are you connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the other devices? I know when I'm not, the AirPlay button doesn't appear.

Yes it's the same wifi network (only one in the house) and as I said it works if the app supports it built-in.

The same first step of reboot then check again still holds true. I find that it fixes sooooooo much with any IOS device. I really miss being jail broken for the simple yet effective reboot option. instead I always turn my phone off and forget to turn it right back on.
