Ways to remove Airplay device from iPhone and iPad:
1) Remove from account:
Go to ‘Settings’ and tap on ‘System Preferences’. Tap on ‘Apple ID’ that should be near the top of the screen. Select the device you want to remove from the Airplay list. Tap on ‘Remove from account’.
Now restart your iPhone. The device should no longer be there in the list of available airplay devices.
2) Turn off your Wi-Fi:
If you are unable to remove the device, try turning off your WiFi for a while. This may sound weird but has worked for some users. Disconnect all your devices from the Wi-Fi and turn off your Wi-Fi. Wait for at least an hour before you connect everything back. Try to remove the device again as mentioned in the previous step.
3) Restart your iPhone or iPad:
Switch off the Airplay settings on your TV. Before turning off your iPhone, go to Settings and ‘Forget’ your Wi-Fi network. Now, turn off your iPhone and router. Wait for 5 minutes before turning on your iPhone and router. Reconnect the iPhone to the Wi-Fi network by typing in the password. You shouldn’t see the old device on your Airplay list anymore.
4) Reset your iOS device:
If none of the above works and you absolutely have to remove the old device, try a full reset of your iPhone or iPad. It is a drastic step, but will most definitely work!
