Apple TV allows you to display a picture from any iDevice on the TV screen. The main condition is that the set-top box and the iOS device must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. To do this, just go to the Control Center (swipe up from the bottom of the screen), select “Screen Repeat “ and specify Apple TV in the list of devices that appears.
