AirPlay is a feature that allows users to wirelessly share audio, video, and other content from an Apple device to another compatible receiver.
If you have an iPhone, iPad or Mac and want to stop sharing with a certain device, AirPlay can be turned off easily.
To stop Screen Mirroring, open Control Center by swiping down from the top right corner on iPhone X and iOS 12 or swiping up from the bottom on older devices.
Disable Screen Mirroring
Screen mirroring is a way of sharing your device’s display with a TV, computer or other screen in real time. This can be useful for demoing mobile apps, displaying VR games or even recording voiceover for instructional videos.
However, you may not want to use this feature. In some cases, it can be inconvenient or even unsafe. So, if you’re concerned about your privacy or want to avoid being mirrored from another device, you can disable this feature on your iPhone 12 and other devices.
Thankfully, there are a few easy ways to do this. The first is to open your device’s Control Center and find the Screen Mirroring option.
For iPhone models without a Home button, you can swipe down from the top right corner to access Control Center. For models with a Home button, you can swipe up from the bottom.
Once you find the Screen Mirroring option, tap it to open it. You’ll then be shown a list of AirPlay-connected devices.
If the device you’re trying to turn off is one of these, you’ll see its name at the bottom of the list, next to the AirPlay icon (which resembles a TV). To disconnect from it, you can simply tap the iPhone name or tap the Stop Mirroring option, depending on your preference.
If you’re not fond of receiving a barrage of notifications, especially those from apps that you don’t even use anymore, there are ways to disable them on your iPhone 12. You can also clear old notifications from your lock screen and hide any that are currently visible.
One of the most convenient features on iOS is Notification Center, which gives you an overview of your recent notifications in one place. But this can also be a security risk, as it lets anyone access your notifications history without unlocking your phone. If you want to make your notifications more private, you can disable Notification Center from the Lock Screen.
You can also disable notifications from a specific app by changing the way it gets alerted. To do this, open the Settings app and tap Notifications. Then, you’ll see options to toggle off “Show in Notification Center,” “Badge Off Icon,” or “Show on Lock Screen.”
If you are having sound issues on your iPhone 12, the first thing that you need to do is make sure that the audio isn’t channeled through any other devices. This includes Bluetooth speakers and headsets, so make sure that you turn off these services if you have them connected to your device.
Next, you should check that the mute switch is not turned on. You can easily check this by opening the control center and checking that the mute switch is not on the right side of your device.
Alternatively, you can simply open the Settings app on your iPhone 12 and check that the mute switch is off. If it is on, flip it to the left and disable the feature.
Finally, you should ensure that your volume is all the way up on your iPhone 12. This will help to keep your device running at maximum potential, which can be particularly useful if your headphones aren’t working or are playing too loudly.
If you have been using AirPlay to stream video to your TV and don’t want to use it anymore, you can easily turn off the feature. You can do this from the Control Center or from your Lock Screen on iOS, depending on the model of iPhone you own.
In order to disable AirPlay, you must first be sure that the Apple TV is connected to your WiFi network. If it is not, you can connect it to your network by pressing the Home button on the device and entering the WiFi password or username on the screen.
The Apple TV app will then show you an overflow menu of AirPlay devices. Tap the blue AirPlay icon for the device you want to turn off, and it should stop playing the content on that device.
It is important to note that turning off the feature will stop it from being used by any other devices that are connected to your Wi-Fi network. If you don’t want to turn off AirPlay, you can also choose to only enable it when you are on a WiFi network.
