AirPods appear as a new speaker option automatically on Apple TVs with iCloud accounts connected to iPhones with AirPods paired. This means you can play music or easily listen to video from Apple TV through AirPods without using the TV speakers.
Previously, manually pairing was required to hear Apple TV content in your AirPods, something that many users didn't bother to do. Now that the pairing process is automatic, will you use your AirPods with the Apple TV? Let us know in the comments.
