CES 2019: These are all the AirPlay 2-enabled TVs confirmed so far

Samsung's PR image

Does Samsung’s PR image really reveal the name of Apple’s future service?

LG, Samsung, Sony and Vizio have all now confirmed plans to support AirPlay 2 in future TV sets in a future software update for those sets.

Now Apple has published an extensive list of all the sets that will support AirPlay 2.

What is going on?

The support means you’ll be able to stream photos, video and audio from iOS and macOS devices to your set and use Siri to control some sets.

It also means HomeKit support for these systems, and (at least in the case of Samsung) introduction of iTunes Movies and TV apps on these smart TVs.

You must look for one of these logos on the pack:

The list includes already available models such as the Vizio P-series, and sets scheduled to ship in 2019. Most of these sets are unreleased and only recently announced.

The news is pretty bright for Samsung and Vizio TV owners. Sonyand LG support will extent to sets made this year, or so it appears.

This already available Samsung TV will gain the new features, it seems.

Apple’s complete list

“Leading TV manufacturers are integrating AirPlay 2 directly into their TVs, so now you can effortlessly share or mirror almost anything from your iOS device or Mac directly to your AirPlay 2–enabled smart TV. You can even play music on the TV and sync it with other AirPlay 2–compatible speakers anywhere in your home,” Apple said.

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.
