Apple TV and iPads

It’s easy to connect an iPad to an Apple TV (ATV). First you need to connect your ATV to a large screen TV with an HDMI cable. If you have an LCD Projector, you will need a cable to connect the ATV to the Projector. See my June 2012 post about the ATV Pro by Kanex. Once your ATV is connected to a projector or screen, you are ready for the next step.

Here is the trick, the ATV and iPad must be on the same WiFi network! You may have to work with the IT person in your district so s/he will allow the ATV to be on the school network. Once you know the ATV and iPad are on the same WiFi network, you are ready to share the content on your iPad through the ATV to the screen.

If you have iOS7 on your iPad, all you do is swipe up from the bottom of the iPad to reveal some additional tools. (You can do this with an iPhone or iPod Touch but the screen is a bit smaller to navigate.) After swiping up to reveal the tools, you will see the words AirPlay. Select AirPlay and the ATV and click Mirror. Swipe the tools back down and everything on your iPad magically appears on the screen. If you don’t see AirPlay when you swipe up, your ATV and iPad are probably not on the same network.

Word on the street is that the new iPad/iPhone iOS coming out this fall won’t require you to be on a network to do this. Check back as I’ll be sure to blog about this exciting new feature!
