Does OS Lion 10.7.5 support Airplay mirror of Apple TV 3? I can't find the option in Setting Display on my mid 2012 MacBook Pro.

Does OS Lion 10.7.5 support Airplay mirror of Apple TV 3? I can't find the option in Setting>Display on my mid 2012 MacBook Pro.
I've rebooted all 3 devices, still does not work. Both Apple TV and MBP are on the same wifi. And the Apple TV AirPlay option is on. Can someone help? Thank you.

About AirPlay and Airplay Mirroring
AirPlay Mirroring requires a second-generation Apple TV or later, and is supported on the following Mac models: iMac (Mid 2011 or newer), Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer), MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer), and MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer). For non-qualifying Macs you can try using Air Parrot.

Thanks to the $15 Beamer, AirPlay streaming is still possible on Macs  that do not support Airplay and mirroring.
Another solution is the Air Parrot.

  • Why does my mid 2012 MacBook Pro Retina latptop shut down during software installation/updates?

    Whenever I attempt to update preexisting software apps or install new ones, my mid 2012 MacBook Pro w/ Retina display will shut down and reboot itself. Obviously this has gotten frustrating as several of my existing apps are woefully out of date.
    Any suggestions would be most helpful.

    Thanks for the assistance and sorry for the late reply, I'm overseas doing HA work and don't always have internet access.
    I tried utilizing the methods you mentioned and upon doing so I received the following message:
    So I followed this set of instructions and when verifying and repairing disk permissions the window stated that the partition was okay.
    After logging back in, I attempted to download a software update, sadly the system shut itself down and rebooted and I am still unable to install any updates for my out of date apps. I won't return to the States until June, I may have to wait until then to resolve this issue.
    Thank you again for your assistance.

  • Does anyone know how I can create "facing pages" in new Pages? I could do it in Pages 09, but can't find the option in new Pages.

    Does anyone know how I can create "facing pages" in new Pages? I could do it in Pages 09 but can't find the option in new Pages. I have documents created in Pages 09 and want to do some further work on them, but am now using new pages.

    There were 100+ features that didn't make it into the "new & improved, rewritten from the ground up” Pages 5. Some have returned with the updates & there are some new features that are worthwhile, but there are still 90+ features missing. Leave feedback for the Pages team using the link in the Pages menu and review & rate the new versions in the Mac App Store.
    If you previously had iWork '09, those apps are still in your Applications folder in a folder named iWork '09. You can continue to use them to get things done.

    Welcome to the Apple community.
    A number of people have reported similar issues recently, many appear to have found a discrepancy of some kind in their account settings and making changes to these settings or simply resetting them has resolved the matter.
    Check your account details are correct, check that you are using the correct details for Location, Region and Time Zone. You may want to change these settings and then change them back to see if that helps.
    You might also try logging out of and then back into your iTunes account (Settings > iTunes Store > Apple ID’s > Sign Out) and restarting your router. (Some have reported that after doing this, they need to check for rentals even though it may report that there aren’t any, after which rentals once again appear in the ‘movies’ feature)
    Rentals should appear under their own heading in the ‘Movies’ feature, you might also check at Settings > iTunes Store > Check For Rentals.

  • The iCloud id on my iPhone does not change to the new one set up with iCloud on my MacBook Pro Maverick

    I have recently upgraded to Mavericks and bought an iPhone 5s. Initially I used the id already registered with Apple but changed it after a few days having used it on both my phone and MacBook Pro. Once I changed my id on the website, my MacBook Pro is fine but my phone has not synched the new id although any changes I make to Calendar, Notes, Contacts, etc do synch between them - puzzling. How can I change the id on my phone - in Settings it does not appear to be possible.
    I am on OS 10.9.2 & iOS 7.1
    Many thanks for your help.

    Go to website.
    Change it back.
    You will have 2 minutes to delete iCloud from iPhone.
    Change it to new one on website and verify.
    Sign in new one on the phone.

  • Can't find the option to switch between MacBook speakers and Airplay speakers in iTunes 11.

    In iTunes 10, the button to switch speakers was in the bottom right corner, now I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know where it is, or if for some reason they removed this feature?!

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    Go to the top right and turn on the iTunes miniplayer. Finally, you'll see AirPlay icon on it

  • Mid 2012 Macbook Pro 2.7 - Showing "handoff not supported"

    I'm trying to figure out why handoff is showing as not supported on my Macbook Pro.
    It was working on Yosemite Beta up to #4, then it longer supported on beta 5 and the public release.
    Am I missing something?

    You need to upgrade to Mountain Lion (10.8.4). The following link tells you what you need for AirPlay:

  • Is LION 10.7.4 from App Store compatible with mid-2012 Macbook Pro 15"?

    I just downloaded lion 10.7.4 from the app store, copied it to a pen drive in the right way (which makes it bootable & tested that and it boots on a 2008 MBP). Connected that pen drive to my 2012 MBP, booted by pressing the alt key, and when i selected the pen drive with the 10.7.4 installation, I get a no entry sign on the screen - basically meaning I cannot install lion.
    Note that I have completely formatted my HD, thus losing the lion recovery partition, so thats why I am having to install from the pen drive.

    You can install lion on that Mac you just have to start it and be sure to connect to a good internet connection. I suggest you are plugged in to a router directly. Then it should prompt you and when you sign in it will see that you purchased Lion and will verify your mac then it will guide you through the rest of the install. try doing that before you restoe it , you may waste alot of time considering you formatted. Otherwise if it is a mid-2012 it absolutely is compatible and you can call Applecare and they will guide you through it with ease.
    The firmware on your mac is what will pull up the promt for connecting to the internet and other such utilities.
    Good luck and enjoy !

  • Does the mid-2012 macbook pro 13" come with a CD or anything like that???

    hey guys just wondering...

    If you feel the need for having your OS in a physical storage device apart from the Mac's internal drive, you have three choices:
    Construct a Lion Recovery Disk on your own USB Flash stick ( ).
    Purchase an official Lion on a Stick for $69 ( ).
    Fudge it, feint a Lion reinstall and concoct your own model-specific Lion Installer on a Stick for free ( ).

  • Airplay is no longer working on my Mid 2012 macbook pro

  • HT1420 I have 5 computers already authorized with my Apple ID.  How can  I add one more.  My home has 1 IMAC, 2 Macbook Pros, 1 Ipad and 2 Iphones.  Why are you now limiting me to five computers on my Apple ID when I am clearly an Apple product supporter.

    I have six products in my home.  I can only authorize five using my Apple ID.  All my products are Apple - 1 IMAC, 2 MacBook Pros, 2 Iphones and 1 IPAD.  This doesn't seem right - We are so Mac'd out in our home and yet we are now being limited to the number of products we can have using the same Apple ID.  Any advice as to how to find a workable soliution to this?

    Authorise Only Applies to Computers... Not Devices...
    You state you have 1 IMAC, 2 MacBook Pros, ... this = 3 Computers... you can Authorise up to 5 computers.

  • How to get install disk for lion on 2012 macbook pro

    How do i get a reinstall disk for drivers and lion as well as ilife so i can install a new ssd drive in my computer

    As Niel said, you have to install OS X through OS X Recovery. Respecting to iLife, if your Mac came with DVDs, you should have it on the Applications DVD that came with the Mac, and if it didn't come with DVDs, open App Store > Purchases, and install iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand.
    Then, if you want, you can download OS X from the App Store instead of using Recovery, so you can burn the installer onto a DVD or USB drive with Lion Diskmaker, so you won't have to redownload OS X each time you want to reinstall. As you have a Mid 2012 MacBook Pro, it will only work if it came with OS X Lion and you upgraded to Mountain Lion

  • HT201343 The Model Identifier:     MacBookPro9,2 support AirPlay Mirroring?

    I have the MacBookPro9,2. This model support AirPlay Mirroring? If the answer is yes, I could enable it?

    You have a Mid 2012 MacBook Pro, so you can use AirPlay Mirroring. AirPlay Mirroring requires OS X Mountain Lion but you are using OS X Lion. You have two options:
    1. Upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion. Make a backup of your files, open the App Store and purchase OS X Mountain Lion. After upgrading, you will see the AirPlay icon on the menu bar.
    2. Keep Lion and use a third-party application like AirParrot >
    I recommend you the first one, so you will get the most recent features. Also, with the OS X Mavericks release in fall, AirPlay Mirroring and other things will get new features >
