Do you want to show off your photos while on-the-go?

Follow instructions below to learn how to make a slideshow using the Photos app:
Step 1: Open the Photos app and navigate to photos you’d like to include in the slideshow.
Step 2: Tap the Select button in the top-right corner of the screen, then begin selecting the photos you’d like to add to the slideshow. You can select as many or as few as you like.

If your Apple TV and your iOS device are both connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you can enable AirPlay and display your slideshow on your TV by doing this:
Alternatively, you can turn on AirPlay from the Control Center (swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring it up), and connect to your Apple TV here. When you start a slideshow, it will automatically use AirPlay to display the slideshow.
