If you have a wireless router, the process becomes even easier. This method is better than the Bluetooth method due to the wireless router’s range. 

But the only concern is the low bandwidth of Apple Airplay so, don’t try to play any movies or Netflix series over the connection, if you don’t want to ruin your mood.
