    Specs:
    Mac Specs: MacBook Pro Mac OSX 10.58 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2.26 GHz Memo
    iPad Mini and Airplay
    Apple.com states that the mini can utilize Airplay to mirror stuff from my Mac to Apple TV.
    I don't have Apple TV yet, but I plan on picking it up. So here's my question: I was looking into Apple TV and Airplay and was bummed to discover that my MacBook Pro is too old for Airplay. But then, Eureka! I realized I bought an iPad mini two weeks ago. So I picked it up and tried to find the Airplay icon. I can't find it.

    Does the Airplay icon only show up when it's connected to Apple TV? I've searched everywhere on the Interwebs but can't find an answer.

    Thank you.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    The AirPlay icon will only show up when an AirPlay receiver (read: AppleTV) is available on the same network.
