    AirPlay mirroring for FaceTime appears to be coming in iOS 5

    Here's some interesting news. It appears that FaceTime will gain AirPlay support with iOS 5. Rene Ritchie at TiPb has posted a screenshot of a FaceTime call up on a big TV. Noting that he "snuck out to a developer friend's place to try it out," Rene calls the experience "magical."

    This feature is available in iOS 5 beta 3, but as Rene correctly points out, not all beta features make it to the final product. If it does, however, millions of people will benefit, and my childhood dream of owning a Jetsons phone will finally be realized.

    Specs:
    2008 15" MBP Yosemite, 2012 21.5" iMac Yosemite
    Would that require an Apple TV? Just wondering how you get the FT video from your iPhone onto the TV.
    64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

    Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

    One scenario I can think of off the top of my head is that some TV's are already capable of joining wireless home networks. Air drop + network connection could = the answer. The other thing could simply be a wi-fi hub/adapter.

    Pretty sure since it goes through AirPlay you'd need an AppleTV or AirPlay enabled device.
