AirPlay-compatible TVs rolling out to hotels

LG anticipates the first hotels to install AirPlay-enabled smart TVs later this spring, requiring the installation of new televisions

Feb 14, 2024

In January, Apple launched iOS 17.3, introducing the AirPlay feature tailored for hotels. However, hotels must ensure their TVs are compatible with this feature to utilize it. Originally slated for a late 2023 release, the rollout has been postponed to spring 2024.

Key takeaways

  • Integrating AirPlay into hotel systems streamlines content access and enhances the experience for Apple users. Upon scanning a QR code, users can seamlessly connect their devices via AirPlay;
  • However, relying on hardware-specific functionalities can be problematic. Implementing new hardware in hotels can quickly become outdated and obsolete;
  • Fortunately, AirPlay operates as a software upgrade to the TV, making it a more sustainable solution. This means hotels need not fret over potential obsolescence if Apple introduces new technologies.
