Use Your iPad On Your TV With Wireless AirPlay Mirroring

Use Your iPad On Your TV With Wireless AirPlay Mirroring

This was just one of the many new features that didn’t warrant more than a sneeze at the end of the iOS 5 portion of today’s keynote, but it’s an awesome one: AirPlay Mirroring.

They didn’t explain the feature in too much detail, but the gist of it is mirroring your iPad display – whatever apps you’re using or videos you’re watching – directly to your Apple TV, wirelessly. Hard to imagine that it’ll be quick enough over Wi-Fi for you to, say, watch yourself cleave fruits on your TV while swiping away on your iPad, but it’s an unexpected and exciting new weapon in the increasingly-impressive AirPlay arsenal.
