Though Apple prices are sky-high, people rush to the store whenever the new devices are launched. Apple is so highly valued for its performance, enhanced feature, style, and whatnot. With the same ecosystem, the interconnectivity between the Apple devices is super cool. The Universal Control feature is the best example of this. Similar to this, you can AirPlay and screen mirror your iPad to your Apple TV.
With Apple’s AirPlay feature, users can stream photos, videos, music, or any media content on any Apple device. By enabling AirPlay on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer, you can mirror the entire screen or specific video file on your Apple TV. Many applications have an in-built casting feature, using which you can mirror the particular app and stream your favorite content on any AirPlay-compatible device.
