Apple AirPlay Support Arrives At Some IGH Hotels And Resorts Locations

When Apple held its WWDC event in June of last year one of the announcements was support for hotel TVs to make better use of the AirPlay system offered by iPhones and iPads.

The aim was for people to be able to scan a QR code and then automatically connect their devices to the TV and hotel WiFi. They’d then be able to stream content via AirPlay including apps, games, and content.

Now, Apple has announced that it’s finally rolling out to select IHG Hotels and Resorts properties in North America.

The news came via a press release posted on Apple’s Newsroom website and explained that there are more than 60 properties across North America that now support AirPlay via their LG TVs. The process of getting things up and running does indeed involve scanning a QR code with iPhones and iPads both supported.

Users can automatically connect to the compatible LG hotel TV in their guest room and the hotel’s Wi-Fi network by scanning a unique QR code on the screen. Once connected, guests can share almost anything on the big screen in their hotel room directly from their iPhone or iPad. Guests can also pair multiple devices to the TV, so friends and loved ones traveling together can also enjoy.

All people will need is an iPhone XS or later or a modern iPad running the latest software and they’ll be off to the races.

Apple says that because each room’s QR code is unique there are no privacy or security concerns and that the connection is erased during the check out process.
