iOS 6 and Apple hardware is knocked regularly as looking old and tired and out of date. Android is stated as far more advanced. And yet when it comes to a basic need nothing could work as well as the iPhone or iPad.
Game of Thrones Season 3 is not available on DVD until next year. HBO for some reason stopped iTunes US from showing the third season, when it was fine for the first two. However, Blinkbox by Tesco, now has the third season available for download. Except the iOS app doesn’t work with AirPlay. Well it does , just turn on AirPlay mirroring. And voila.
Now when it came to trying to use an android phone or tablet, this basic operation was not possible. iOS to the rescue.
