Apple TV Management
tvOS adds new device management capabilities, most of which are already present on iOS. These new features make it easy to configure an Apple TV for use in many common education and enterprise scenarios, from dedicated classroom or conference room AirPlay destinations to kiosks running custom apps in Single App Mode.

Sometimes you may not want users to make specific choices about how their devices are initially configured.
If an Apple TV is supervised, its name can be set with Apple Configurator or your mobile device management (MDM) solution.
Restrictions can be enabled, or in some cases disabled, to prevent users from accessing a specific app, service, or function of the device.
Stream audio and video to other devices
Mirror your iPad screen on an Apple TV. Open Control Center, tap screen mirror , then choose your Apple TV as the playback destination. If an AirPlay passcode appears on the TV screen (recommend for the classroom), enter the passcode on your iPad. For more options and details click user guide below.
Probably the easiest way to hook up an iPad or iPhone to a TV/Projector is to buy a Lightning Digital AV Adapter from the Apple Store. You will need the adapter as well as an HDMI cable. (Apple sells an HDMI cable for $29.95, but Amazon offers a far cheaper option: a basics cable.)
Using a Lightning Digital AV Adapter couldn't be easier.
- Plug one end of an HDMI cable into the adapter's HDMI port, and the other into a spare HDMI port on the back of your TV/Projector.
- Connect the adapter to the Lightning port on your iPad and iPhone.
- Optional: Connect your charger cable to the Lightning port on the Lightning Digital AV Adapter.
Turn on the TV/Projector and ensure it's set to display the video input from the HDMI socket. (You generally use the remote to pick from multiple HDMI inputs on your television.) You will see the iPad or iPhone's home screen appear on the television.
Start playing a video on your iPad or iPhone. Either pick a movie file from the Videos app, or play a clip from Netflix, BBC iPlayer, YouTube, or any other video app. The Home screen will vanish from the TV, and the video will play in full definition. On the iPad you will see a screen that says TV Connected.
