In March, Roku released the Roku OS 12 update that introduced improvements across entertainment discovery, live TV, sports, the mobile app, and much more.

However, it appears that this update also introduced some bugs and issues while at it.

Apple Airplay not working or connecting on Roku devices

According to reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9), multiple Roku owners are experiencing an issue where Apple AirPlay is not working or connecting properly.

Apparently, even though a ‘device is connected’ notification appears on their TV screen after selecting the Screen Mirroring option, the stream doesn’t appear.

And surprisingly, this is also happening when one gets the ‘this video is playing on Roku TV’ message on their iPhone or iPad.


Notably, some are facing difficulties in properly connecting Roku with their phones. While others assert that their Roku streaming device doesn’t even appear in the ‘Devices’ list.

In addition to this, HomeKit users are also unable to discover their Roku device. The issue popped up after installing the latest Roku OS 12 update and remains unresolved until now.

One of those affected says that they get ‘A Roku device was not found at this IP address’ error message whenever they are trying to manually connect the device.


Roku stopped working with airplay and won’t connect to app or show up on my phone when I try to connect.

Why does my Roku say A Roku device was not found at this IP address. Please check the IP.

Some are speculating that this is likely happening due to issues with multicast traffic on their network.

Unfortunately, connecting the phone and streaming device to the same network, restarting the devices, and tinkering with settings could not help users get rid of the problem.

But we are hopeful that Roku will address this problem shortly.

Having said that, we’ll continuously monitor the issue where Apple AirPlay is not working or connecting on Roku devices and update the article as soon as we come across any new information.
