OS X Mavericks is finally here, so MacLife proudly presents a series of informative how-tos to keep you updated on what has changed and how to use it. Check back often to learn more about the newest Mac operating system from Apple.
One of the more surprising (and nicer) changes Apple made to OS X with Mavericks was the ability to use any TV or display connected to an Apple TV as a second display for your Mac. All Macs that supported AirPlay mirroring in OS X Mountain Lion now have the ability to use AirPlay-connected TVs as a second display in Mavericks. In this article, we’ll show you how to turn this feature on and configure additional options, like changing where the audio comes from and the size of the secondary display.
The Apple TV makes it easy to show off pictures taken with the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPhone via AirPlay, but the built-in Photos app leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to managing how those images actually appear on screen. Enter PhotoPresenter, a universal app from the creators of iStopMotion that offers iOS device owners full control over how photos are displayed using a clutter-free, drop-dead simple user interface.
We're not afraid to say we're big fans of Amazon Instant Video, but at the same time, we confess to some secret shame over the fact that the service isn't available on the Apple TV. Well, now it is -- sort of.
There were plenty of other things rumored alongside the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c for Tuesday, but at least one of them -- a software update for the Apple TV -- is said to still be in the cards for next week.
Google's media event on Wednesday did indeed unveil an update to the Nexus 7 tablet as expected, but the bigger news had more to do with a $35 dongle that appears to be the company's answer to Apple TV.
Until the Thunderstorm, the best way to get killer sound when using your iPad was to plug in the very best headphones you had, or maybe send the audio to a set of real speakers, using a cable or AirPlay. But now Belkin’s made it possible to hold a powerful, room-filling set of speakers right in your hand.
No, it's not Game of Thrones Season Three news, so calm down. Although getting HBO Go Airplayed to your Apple TV might be pretty huge news for you, if you're into that kind of thing. These stories and more under the fold, just don't turn your back on Joffrey.
We love when content providers finally get the message and give us the features we want -- nay, need! -- as loyal users of their products. On Tuesday, the big news came with a very tiny update to the existing HBO Go apps, which are finally enabled with AirPlay streaming at long last. Really, it's something that every video streaming app should have now, and users need to keep the pressure on companies to provide it. So what else happened Tuesday? We're glad you asked...
