Tips to fix AirPlay Error on iOS
In order for AirPlay to work, both the devices which are used to share content using AirPlay should be connected to the same wireless network.
If the AirPlay icon is not visible, then make sure that the Apple TV or Mac device to which you are about to wirelessly play the content is also switched ON and awake.
If Bluetooth is switched ON, then turn it OFF.
If WIFI is switched OFF, then turn it ON.
Make sure that the WIFI router has the latest firmware installed.
If more than one iOS devices are trying to stream content to the Apple TV or Mac device, then you may face an error. Always make sure to stream content from one iOS device only at a time.
Some third-party applications may cause the AirPlay feature on your iOS device to work improperly especially if the application does a similar function as AirPlay. iOS applications like AirParrot and Duet are some of the applications that cause AirPlay error on iOS devices. So if these apps are installed on your iOS device, try uninstalling them.
Make sure that playing content using AirPlay is not blocked by the firewall on your Mac device. To check the same, first launch the Apple Menu and then launch the “System Preferences” window. Now click on “Security & Privacy” and then click on “Firewall”. Under the “Firewall Options” section, uncheck the checkbox that says “Block All Incoming Connections”. Also, check the box that says “Automatically Allow Signed Software to Receive Incoming Connections”.
