Once you have upgrade to iOS 7 you will notice some big changes with the OS, such as the look and features being move about. It is the latter that has caused a bit of a headache for some people, as they struggle to find a feature that Apple decided to move.

When you wanted to mirror your iPad or iPhone to Apple TV you just double tapped the home button and brought up a row of icons, then swipe to the right and see Airplay hiding. However, people have been asking where has Airplay mirroring on iOS 7 been moved, because it is no longer where it was. All you need to do now is slide up at the bottom of your screen and you will see the device center pop up and Airplay will be there. We have embedded a video of this for you below.

There is a growing demand to see iOS 7 AirDrop support Mavericks, and while we cannot confirm it will be a feature on OS X 10.9, we sure hope it will be.

Mirroring will be a big feature for Mac with OS X Mavericks, which we expect to be released later this month. Support for this feature will be richer for those with more than one display. We know Mac devices have supported multiple displays for several years, but you will soon be able to have more control over this feature with Mavericks.

Using mirroring on something like a MacBook Pro with Mavericks will be more pleasurable than we have seen with previous versions of OS X, and how this differs is better explained in this hands-on with OS X 10.9 Mavericks. It is clear to see that mirroring has its limitations in terms of a second screen going blank when playing apps, but soon both screens will show the same content.

10.9 is set to become the best upgrade yet, let us hope the price of OS X Mavericks is not going to go up too much to cater for these new features?
