Upgrade to AirParrot 2 for Uninterrupted Screen Mirroring

In 2014, we introduced AirParrot 2 — a completely rebuilt, supercharged and feature-packed version of the original AirParrot. We continued support for AirParrot for quite some time, but that time has come to an end. We will no longer be updating the original version of AirParrot.

The original version of AirParrot will not be compatible with new operating systems or the latest versions of the Apple TV. The release of tvOS 10 makes AirParrot incompatible with the fourth generation Apple TV, and the release of macOS Sierra will render certain parts of the application unusable.

AirParrot 2 will continue to receive operating system and receiver compatibility updates. We encourage you to upgrade to AirParrot 2 to ensure uninterrupted screen sharing.

AP to AP2 Upgrade
