Airplay: Turn off "Background App Refresh"

To ensure the best connection with your Apple TV, turn off “Background App Refresh” on your iPad and iPhone.

  1. Tap the Settings icon and go to General
    General Settings showing Background App Refresh
  2. Tap “Background App Refresh”
    Background App Refresh ON
  3. Tap the switch to turn Background App Refresh OFF
    Background App Refresh OFF

This prevents apps running in the background from using your wireless bandwidth while you're using Airplay for screen mirroring on your Apple TV.

Important Note: Turn it back on when you're done

When you're done screen mirroring, you probably want to turn Background App Refresh back on. Otherwise you may not get e-mail alerts, etc.
