Why won't peer-to-peer AirPlay work with my iPad / Apple TV?

Peer-to-peer AirPlay allows your friends or family to use their Mac or iOS device to connect to your Apple TV without having to connect to your Wi-Fi network. This only works on newer iOS devices and the 3rd generation Apple TV. Supported devices include the 4th and 5th generation iPod touch iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2 and all three iPad mini models. iOS devices need to be running iOS 7.0 or later and all devices need Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on for peer-to-peer AirPlay to work.

What is AirPlay?

AirPlay allows you to stream photos, video and music from your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad to your HDTV, Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation) and speakers. Users can also mirror any content that is currently showing on their device's display, including web pages, apps, spreadsheets and more. This also allows users to turn their iOS device into a video game controller by streaming games to their TV.

Peer-to-peer AirPlay allows visitors easy access to your Apple TV without the need to connect to your Wi-Fi network.
