The discovery was shared by @Tesla_iOS_App on Twitter after decompiling the app’s latest version, which has a reference that reads: allowsAirPlayForMediaPlayback.
Currently, the app is not showing any features that will allow AirPlay between Apple and Tesla EV devices, but it is a huge hint that the capability will soon arrive. To recall, Tesla CEO Elon Musk twitted about discussing the matter with the Tesla team last year. Now, it seems the EV giant is now starting its work to allow AirPlay support for Teslas. Once available, this should enable easier sharing and streaming of video and audio content from an Apple device to Tesla’s screen.
In related news, aside from Tesla, AirPlay is also coming to LG TVs in hotels. The South Korean company confirmed this, saying it would be the first brand to bring AirPlay to its TVs later this year. According to the company, AirPlay will be delivered to LG Pro: Centric Smart Hotel TVs later this year at select properties. It also promised to make AirPlay available on 2023 LG smart hotel TVs and top the models produced recently. The idea is to make it possible for hotel guests to securely share videos, photos, and music from the iPhone to the TV by simply scanning a QR code in the hotel room. This way, downloading any app or typing the password will no longer be needed, with LG saying, “AirPlay will be as easy to use as when at home.”
