Step 4. When you tap on AirPlay, the list of devices that are connected to the network are shown. Tap on Apple TV.

Now, content will be automatically streamed to your television when you view a photo or play a video. It doesn’t usually matter what stock app you use: Photos, Video app, YouTube, Safari etc. Some of the apps have built-in AirPlay function which lets you stream content to the Apple TV easily.

AirPlay works best when you have a stable Wi-fi network. It doesn’t incur data charges. AirPlay can also be used to stream audio as an output to other devices. If you find that videos are streaming with a delay or getting stuck in between, you might want to reconnect (repeat the steps from the beginning).
