Finally, all updates to Apple operating systems are out. Our readers have already noted more than once that innovations are not enough. Previously, such updates were often released within the same version over the course of a year. Now, we are presented with it as a revolution. I fundamentally disagree with subscribers, because Apple’s policy regarding updating its products has changed slightly. Nowadays, no one needs global changes, everyone is used to the fact that the iPhone is the iPhone, and the Mac is the Mac. So, it’s time to make adjustments inside the firmware: add non-obvious things that many will like, and those who are used to seeing the operating system as it is will not be an eyesore. Today we’ll talk about just one of these features.
We’ve already covered the most useful features of macOS Monterey. Despite the seeming fadedness of the new system, there really is something to pick up. As I already said, it is imperative to read, since you yourself are unlikely to intuitively guess about their existence. One of the features that I cannot ignore is AirPlay.
How to use AirPlay
Basically, this means the following: everything you do on the iPhone can be streamed to the Mac without any problems. Previously, I used similar technologies only when I connected an iPad as a second monitor, but this is a little different.
Why stream information from iPhone to Mac? And most importantly, where you can find a quality application.
How to Stream Music from Phone to Computer
For example, a Mac can be used as an external speaker. Especially if you subscribe to third party streaming services. We got home from work, unlocked the computer, pressed a couple of buttons and that’s it. For example, I no longer intend to use the separate Music application on my MacBook.
To use your Mac as an external speaker, you should:
- Unlock iPhone and Mac.
- Find the song you want in Apple Music or another site.
- Click on the AirPlay icon.
- Place a check mark in front of your Mac.
- Click on the Play button.
You can also stream PowerPoint or Keynote presentations to your Mac and use your iPhone as a remote control for conferences and similar events. It is very easy to do this:
- Unlock iPhone.
- Swipe from the upper right corner to call the Control Center.
- Next, find the button with two monitors.
- Select the device we need.
- Then launch the desired game on the iPhone.
In life, my family and I use a feature when someone comes back from vacation and shares photos. We sit down on the sofa together and leaf through photographs from St. Petersburg or Saratov. Very convenient, try it yourself.
How to stream iPhone to Windows
If you are wondering about broadcasting an iPhone to a Windows computer, here only will help you third-party software… Alas, it will not work to do this natively. In general, the algorithm of actions is exactly the same, with one caveat. Instead of a laptop icon, a specific program will be displayed in AirPlay.
Can I play on MacBook
Earlier I already talked about the future of the mobile gaming industry in my article, and there I concluded that useless, useless time killers have long supplanted truly high-quality AAA-class projects, like Grand Theft Auto, Need for Speed and the like. Let’s face it, there is simply not much to play now.
Mac gaming is another problem. Yes, you can say as long as you like that people buy an apple computer not for these purposes, but still. At least sometimes every macho man wants to launch the good old Most Wanted and spend another hour, forgetting about all the worries. Now there is a solution.
What games can you play on a Mac
It’s clear that playing Subway Surfers on an iMac would be just plain silly. The frames are cropped, the mechanics are primitive, the graphics are far from “right.” But it would be very cool to hack to death in NBA 2v21 with an Arcade subscription. The chief editor of AppleInsider.ru Renat Grishin supported my idea and shared his long-standing desire to play some kind of simulator like NHL or FIFA.
I don’t really like simulations. In my opinion, they are as primitive as other projects of this kind. I would like something more serious. Ah, if only Fortnite were available for download. I sincerely hope that Apple will resolve the conflict in the near future and bring the legend back to the App Store.
In the meantime, instead, you can spend the evening in the company of an equally famous PUBG or Call of Duty Mobile… Perhaps these are the only projects in the entire app store that deserve proper attention. Everything is here: graphics, gameplay, and dynamics.
Which Macs support AirPlay
It’s nice that Cupertino did not restrict users of Intel-based computers and significantly expanded the list of devices that support this function. Owners of the following models can rate the new chip:
- 2018 MacBook Pro and newer.
- 2018 MacBook Air and newer.
- 2019 iMac and newer.
- 2017 iMac Pro.
- 2019 Mac Pro.
- 2020 Mac mini.
Still better with iPhone and iPad support. The feature is available even on the iPhone 7, which was released back in 2016, it’s a sin to complain here:
- iPhone 7 and newer.
- iPad Pro (2nd generation and newer)
- iPad Air (3rd generation or later)
- iPad (6th generation or later)
- iPad mini (5th generation or later)
On other models, content can also be streamedhowever the picture quality will upset you a lot, especially given the Retina display. It would be a shame not to reveal its potential, so I do not recommend recommending AirPlay to owners of old devices.
What are your thoughts on the new feature in macOS Monterey? Will you use it? I propose to share your opinion in our Telegram-chat, it will be interesting to read.
