Triggering Airplay on older iPads

With older iPads (notably the iPad 2) and iOS 8.2, use this trick if Airplay is not available.

Airplay may not show on your iPad after upgrading to iOS 8.2 or later:

No Airplay showing

Use these steps to get it going:

  1. Touch “Airplane mode” (which turns off wireless and Bluetooth)
    Airplane Mode
  2. Touch “Airplane mode” again to switch wireless and Bluetooth back on. After a few seconds, the Airplay icon should appear.
    Airplay is visible
  3. Scroll through the list of available devices to find your Apple TV
    Choose the Airplay device
  4. Move the mirroring switch to the right to start using your Apple TV
    Set mirroring on
