Mirroring Your iPad and iPhone via Apple TV

When you want to view your apps from your iPhone or iPad on your HD television via your Apple TV device, you need to set up mirroring on the mobile device. 

Particularly nice to view is Google Maps or your favorite game.

Basically, you need to make sure that you have

* One of the latest Apple devices - iPhone 4S or iPad 2 (and later) with system iOS 5 and later.
* Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software version 5.0 or later
* wifi network that is 802.11a, -g or -n

Make sure your Apple iPhone or iPad and Apple TV connected to the same wifi network.

Double click the home button on your device (iPad or iPhone) until you see the most recently used apps at the bottom of the screen.

Swipe to the right, until the music controls are visible at the bottom of the screen.

Click on the airplay icon that is represented by a box with up arrow.

Select your Apple TV.  Another option labeled "Mirroring" should then appear below "Apple TV." Use the slider to select ON to enable mirroring of your device to your Apple TV.

Now you can run your favorite app and view it on your HDTV.

iPad is the best friend I've ever got just Hold it in your hand and you are hooked by its size, feather weight and sheer quality. Apple was late with the iPad mini but in my view they really have hit the spot.
