Using iPad With Apple TV

A number of customers who ordered an Apple TV have mentioned that they are receiving shipment notifications for their orders, even though it was rumored last week’s that the iTV may be slightly delayed.

If it’s on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, it’s on Apple TV.

You can already stream music, photos, and video from your computer to Apple TV. With AirPlay, you can stream it all from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, too. So if you feel like watching a movie you have on one of your devices, you don’t need to rent or buy it again. Just tap to start playing content on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, then tap again to instantly stream whatever you’re watching — or listening to — directly to Apple TV. AirPlay is coming soon to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch near you.

As good streaming content from my iPad sounds, you won’t be able to use your iPhone or iPad as a remote for the Apple TV. Instead, there’s a feature called “AirPlay,” so if you’re using your iPad or iPhone to listen to music, look at photos or watch a video, you can tap an AirPlay button, select your Apple TV and presto...iPad content is streaming onto your Apple TV. This feature won’t be available until iOS 4.2 ships in November.

I'll give a full review once I receive my AppleTV!
