Downloaded iOS 13only to find that AirPlay fails to work with almost all AirPlay software/devices and Apps? Regret to update iOS 13 with now an iPhone/iPad always getting stuck? Going further with the feeling that phones/tablets are becoming more alike than ever with iPhone SE/6/6S and iPad Pro in hand? You have all the legitimate reason to get frustrated. But luckily this time, 5KPlayer will 100% see to the Apple unique iOS 13 AirPlay compatibility issue in its 6.0 version! Behold boys!
With appealing enriched features of iOS 13 rolling out, including the noticeable redesigned iOS 13 APP switcher and back button, smarter Siri, smaller system size of only 1.3G, changed font, extended battery life by 3hrs, sketch function in Notes etc, you may want to have a instant upgrade to iOS 13 regardless of whatever experienced hands have to say. But iPhone/iPad symptoms like fevering, hiccups, APP force termination, running out of memory are indeed common issues people encounter every now and then with iOS 13, since discrepancies between theory and practice is unavoidable, which also leads us to question the big improvement of iOS 13 AirPlay – Can we truly benefit from this amended function? Or maybe we should downgrade iOS 13 to iOS 12.
The advantages of iOS 13 AirPlay or the purpose of this escalation mainly lay in the overall performance and fortified security of iOS 13 streaming, paving the way for more efficient and secure video music beaming and gaming of Apple TV 4 and generations ahead. Lowered battery consumption and accelerated encrypted connection are also highlights of iOS 13 AirPlay.
Nevertheless, with securer way of iOS 13 AirPlay encryption and changes in AirPlay protocols, incompatibility of old AirPlay protocols rises up, that it has largely affected many developers and users of 3rd party AirPlay software/APP in streaming/mirroring to Mac/PC. They simply cannot connect the iOS 13 devices with the likes of X-mirage or devices made by Airsonos, yet, iOS 13 to Apple TV 4/3/2 AirPlay (jailbroken Apple TV excluded) working perfectly fine. Also, reviewing from the update of previous iOS 13 beta 1-3 to official iOS 13, proposed overhaul on this issue neither happened nor answered by Apple. To what end shall we be waiting?
On both Mac and Windows, 5KPlayer works as an AirPlay receiver and sender that can turn your computer into a media server compatible with iOS 13 iPhone/iPad/Apple TV. Assisted by 5KPlayer, you will be able to AirPlay from iOS 13 to Mac and Windows system, stream 4K content to Apple TV4, or even AirPlay mirroring your whole iOS 13 screen to Mac/Windows.
