    Default AirPlay Keeps Vanishing from my iPhone 4S

    I have Apple TV Third Generation, and it has worked perfectly for a long time now. Starting yesterday, however, whenever I leave my house then come back home, the option to AirPlay disappears. I have to reboot my iPhone to bring it back. I have two iPads in the house and they have no airplay problems, just the phone. Any ideas?

    May be an IP address issue... make sure your wifi hotspot is set up to assign enough IP addresses for all the devices you want to connect... and rather than rebooting, try toggling wifi on and off in the phone settings. Another option would be to go into settings and reset your network settings... you'd have to sign in to any previously used hotspots again after that...

    I use to have this problem with the 4 and 4s, I'd have to toggle WiFi on/off in order for it to reappear.
    Resetting and my switching routers never helped.
    haven't had the problem yet with the iphone 5. I probably will now

    I tired switching WiFi off then on again, but it didn't work. Only a reboot of the phone will do it.
