Best Ways to AirPlay iOS 16 to Apple TV

Last updated on September 19, 2023 by

iOS 16 users are now frustrated over screen mirroring issues. The latest update is no longer compatible with the old Apple TV models, such as the second-generation and third-generation Apple TVs launched in 2010 and 2012. If you own one and try to mirror your iPhone to Apple TV, you will be greeted with an error message saying “There was an error loading this content, Try again”. This raises the concern of many ios 16 users if they should get a new Apple TV or switch to smart TVs instead. Truth is, you don’t need to get a brand new TV just to enjoy your phone on a larger screen since a lot of people are now switching to using screen mirroring applications to cast iOS 16 to Apple TV effectively.
