AirPlay Mirroring mirrors everything you see on your iPhone/iPad on your living room TV. It also lets developers use the feature for games where multi-player parties can be set up - as shown above.

With Airplay Mirroring, Apple has added support for developers. One example is Real Racing 2 where gamers use the iPad 2 as a “steering wheel” and "race track overview" while experiencing the actual race on the TV. The picture above is taken from Real Racing 2 but all game developers can incorporate these functions.

AirPlay has been supporting video, music and pictures on Apple TV for some time but AirPlay Mirroring adds a range of new exciting options. Learn more about AirPlay and AirPlay Mirroring here.

Apple has also added a NHL (National Hockey League) streaming App as well as Wall Street Journal Live with video news, commentary and financial analysis reports.

Lastly, the update adds support for Netflix subtitles as well as a new Trailers App.
