You can stream music from your iPhone to your Apple TV using Airplay. This wireless option makes listening to your music collection on your TV easy to do. It’s nice to Airplay your music to your Apple TV when you’re having a party or cleaning the house and you want music to serenade you. A college classmate of mine once told me that he played music constantly day and night. “I feel like I need a soundtrack for my life,” he said.
