Mirror iPad 2 on your TV with iOS 5, AirPlay

Apple is bringing iPad 2 mirroring with iOS 5 via Apple TV and AirPlay, we took the liberty to make a video of how to use it!

In our never-ending quest to prep our faithful readers for iOS 5 we cover an amazing new iPad 2-specific feature in iOS 5: mirroring. Mirroring via AirPlay and an Apple TV (which will also have to be running iOS 5) will allow you to display your iPad 2 screen on any TV with an HDMI port.

Sending your iPad 2's screen to your TV is as easy as:

  • Entering the fast app switcher dock
  • Swiping left-to-right
  • Pressing the AirPlay icon
  • Select AppleTV and toggle the Mirror switch

What do you think? Is this something you will use on a regular basis? Or, is mirroring better suited for classrooms and business meetings?
