One thing that my iPhone 5 has allowed me to do that my iPhone 4 couldn’t is full AirPlay Mirroring – the screen and audio is mirrored to another device. The iPhone 4 supported audio AirPlay, but not the picture as well – this was added in the 4S and subsequently the 5 as well.
And I’m pleased to say it works well. Having a network that uses 802.11n obviously helps, but there was no noticeable lag between the images on my phone and the screen. It did, as you can imagine, wear down the phone’s battery quite quickly and also made it run quite warm.
It was also a chance to see Rovio’s new game Bad Piggies on the big screen. Christine and I are both Angry Birds fans – I have all four games and we have most of the plush toys as well. It’s a fun game – definitely best played with the sound on – and it’s sufficiently different to Angry Birds to be interesting. Plus, it’s only 69p.
