Fix AirPlay to Mac Missing or Not working in some Monterey mac machine

Last Updated on Nov 2, 2021

in macOS Monterey, Apple introduced a new way to case iPhone video to Mac using AirPlay that we usual do on Apple tv. From now, quite easy to play iPhone or iPad video directly on your Mac screen through AirPlay Sharing located on the iOS control center. For that, your iPhone/iPad and Mac both must have installed iOS 15 and macOS Monterey respectively. bottom listed bulled points show you what users can do using mac Airplay on macOS Monterey that is not possible ever before even macOS big Sur OS.

  1. AirPlay content to your Mac
  2. Mirror or extend the display
  3. Use as AirPlay 2 speaker
  4. Send wired or wirelessly

AirPlay to my Mac – hardware requirements?

Here’s the list of the AirPlay to Mac Supported Mac List. I suggest you should buy a new Apple 16inch MacBook Pro offer Apple Silicon Chip M1 Pro and M1 Max 2021.

  • M1 Pro Chip and M1 Max Chip MacBook Pro 2021
  • Available on MacBook Pro (2018 and later),
  • MacBook Air (2018 and later),
  • iMac (2019 and later),
  • iMac Pro (2017),
  • Mac mini (2020 and later),
  • Mac Pro (2019),
  • iPhone 7 and later,
  • iPad Pro (2nd generation and later),
  • iPad Air (3rd generation and later),
  • iPad (6th generation and later), and iPad mini (5th generation and later).
  • Older iPhone, iPad, and Mac models may share content at a lower resolution to supported Mac models when “Allow AirPlay for” is set to “Everyone” or “Anyone on the same network” in Sharing preferences.

AirPlay to Mac feature is missing right now? I hope, this will be available later this year.

Does Monterey allow you to make your Mac an AirPlay audio ONLY receiver?

Yes, you can airplay music from iPad to Mac, just open Apple Music and play a song then select Airplay and choose Mac. That’s simple. if you don’t have an Apple Music subscription, let try the youtube music app to airplay audio from iOS device to Mac’s macOS Monterey.
