    I am also having the same issue with my apple TV. It will play a long for a minute or so and then drop out. Also, like others on here are furious with the IOS6's abilities for air playing. I wish I could go back to IOS 5.

    Hi Apollo20  I did "reset to factory settings" this weekend, and restored the phone. No luck in airplay, yeah I had to regroup my 250 apps in folders again. but no change in airplay icon, still disappears.

    The same issue here:

    My 4s has annoying sound dropouts when I use airplay.

    Dropouts repeat randomly in 5-10 minutes.

    This happens on all airplay devices: atv2, atv3, marantz 1602.

    Dropouts appeared after ios 6 update. On ios 5 everything was fine.


    I think this is a bug.


    Ps: Bluetooth streaming in my car is fine on ios 6.

    I can add that notification sound source is broken in ios6.

    During airplay session it should be played from phone speaker, and

    should not interrupt music. Like it was in ios5.

    same problem as everyone else. what is going on?

    My problem is similar, as regards the orange icon color on my iPhone 4S and inconsistent Airplay mirroring with my MacBookPro on Mountain Lion. However, what's happening on my iPhone 4S is interesting. Some apps seems to have lost the Airplay icon altogether, but others have retained it. So, if I want to use an app that lost the icon, I just have to go to one that has it (like iTunes itself), activate Airplay and then go back to the app I wanted to listen on my HTS via Apple TV. Likewise, if I want to turn Airplay off on my iPhone, I have to go back to an app with the icon and change the setting. It seems my Airplay setting in any given app (well, one that still has the icon!) is a global settings for all apps that can be streamed to my Apple TV. Very annonying. The problems on my laptop are similar, although sometimes Airplay seems to crash altogether and I have ot go into my Sound Preferences and actually set it globally from there. It seems like apps, whether on my iPhone or on my laptop, engage a virtual port of some sort for Airplay and then sometimes don't want to let it go without a cache flush.

    Last weekend, I tried some further experiments including:

    • Turning off all other wireless devices (cordless phone)
    • Turning off the 5GHZ band on my dual band router (forcing my iPad to use the 2.4GHZ band just like the iPhone 4S and the iPod Touch).

    With both of the above (i.e. at the same time) I still had the same issue - iPhone 4S and iPod experienced same drop-outs with AirPlay, while the iPad worked okay as before (i.e. running on the 2.4 GHZ band instead of the 5GHZ band).  iPhone 3GS on ios5 still works as before - no surprises.


    Interesting enough, while doing the above experiments last weekend, I noticed that there was an update available on the AppleTV.  So I applied the update and repeated the above tests and I reckon the problem was even worse in terms of dropouts.


    Given this and that other people are experiencing the same problem, I think it is fair to say there is an issue/bug in ios6 for the iPhone 4s and iPod Touch 4th Gen.  I wouldn't know if this is an issue on the new iPhone5.


    I am hoping this gets fixed soon.  I will hesitate to invest in more Apple gear if this continues to be a problem.

    Same problem here.  My iPad2 with iOS5 works great for mirroring to my AppleTV.  My iPhone4S with iOS6 does not EVER show the airplay icon in the recently used listing near the itunes icon.  Please we need a real fix!

    AirPlay problem not solved after installing update iOS 6.0.1. Issue is same as described before in this thread.

    I found the answer on another forum.  You have to scroll another screen further left than before in the bottom menu That you bring up with a double push of the home button. So it was a change not a real problem robot. Just a problem for me cause I didn't know about it.

    Thanks, Arana. This is the solution. You can also find the mirroring option here so that whatever is on your iPhone screen is on your TV. Well done!

    Thanks arana yes the further left page on the bottom strip of 4 icons you are talking about, I certainly see the volume bar there but Airplay Icon is missing there, which used to be always present there before iOS5.0 upgrade . so I don't think its solving the issue yet, unless its only me. Currently the workaround which I am following is open You Tube app, which ALWAYS has Airplay icon on video player, once I do Airplay some video there then I come back to Music app or screen Mirroing option then Airplay Icon is displayed there.  not if its possible to post a link of another forum here so we can take look at the solution you mentioned.



    For  arana and JSmith552,are you guys having issue of Airplay Icon disappearing sometimes?

    arana, Looks like opening the bottom panel on search screen and keeping it ON for few seconds does brings Airplay icon back, not sure why I have to wait though..but it's a good workaround, will confirm if it works consistantly... thanks

    HI, Neel2012. This gets curioser and curioser, doesn't it? While what Arana found seems to work consistently for me, while your is that it's an inconsistent fix--though I just saw your update, glad it worked finally! I have had the same experience as you of some apps having the Airplay icon and some not. That's been consistent since the iOS 6 upgrade. I had been doing what you were doing--going to an app that had it, engaging it, and then going to the app that didn't have it to watch that video on the Apple TV. But since I starting using Arana's  fix, I just go the bottom strip once I'm in the app that doesn't have the Airplay Icon. And now I see that you have it if you wait a few minutes. I'm going to suggest that it's an app developer issue. One thing I have noticed is that I have multiple updates daily since iOS 6 was implemented. But these updates don't seem to fix all of the issues, including this. For instance, I just this morning got an update for an app that lost the Airplay Icon with the iOS update, and the new app update did not restore it. And this app is one of the most stable I have, playing high quality video over 4G and never crashing. But I have to use the bottom strip fix to throw it up on the Apple TV.


    And thanks for reminding to download YouTube fromt he App Store--I kept forgetting I lost the native app with the upgrade. It's nice that I can log in with my Google Apps account, which is where I use YouTube now. My Apple TV still only accepts a gmail login, which needs to be fixed, though I suspect it won't be since the Apple/Google divorce seems final. But that's a different issue and off-topic here...
