    Thanks so much, Gary, for yet another great tutorial. When I airplay an app (Facetime or Whats app) from iPhone to mac (or AppleTV) and physically keep the phone to landscape mode, the mac adjusts the apps to this mode to the point where you start a video call. Once the video begins, the mac goes back automatically to portrait mode. Is there any way around this, or is this simply an Airplay or Facetime/Whats App limitation?

    Razvan: There’s no settings or things you can change. Request this as a feature from Apple if you want it.

    Hi Gary!
    When I go to “Settings/Sharing…there is NO Airplay Receiver listed???
    I am up to date on my iMac, Mac OS Monterey.

    Robert: Perhaps your Mac is too old? Did you watch the entire video where I talk about that?
