Play a presentation on a separate display in Keynote on iPad
To show your presentation on a separate screen, connect your device to an external display, a projector, or Apple TV with AirPlay. The presentation plays on the connected screen, and the presenter display shows on your device. You can set the presenter display to show presenter notes, a timer or a preview of the next slide.
Present on a separate display
Connect an external display to your device using AirPlay or a video adapter.
If you’re using Apple TV, turn on mirroring.
In the slide navigator, tap to select the slide you want to begin with, then tap .
Your presentation begins to play on the connected display, and Keynote on your device switches to show the presenter display.
A green light next to the slide number on the presenter display indicates that the last transition or build effect on the current slide has finished playing, and you can tap the slide to advance to the next build or slide.
A red light next to the slide number indicates that a slide transition or slide build hasn’t finished playing; you can’t advance to the next build effect or the next slide until the current transition or build is completed.
To exit the presenter display and stop playing your presentation, pinch the slide or tap .
Customise the presenter display
You can select which items appear on the presenter display and modify its layout at any time when you’re playing the presentation, and in rehearse slideshow mode.
Do one of the following:
If an external display is connected: Tap at the top of the screen. Your presentation begins to play on the connected display, and Keynote on your device switches to show the presenter display.
If no external display is connected: Tap , then tap Rehearse Slideshow. The presenter display appears on your device.
Do any of the following:
Change the layout of the presenter display: Tap , then tap an option to see the current slide, next slide, presenter notes or any combination.
Change the appearance of presenter notes: With presenter notes showing, tap , then tap to make the font larger, or tap to make it smaller. Turn on Invert Colours to show white text on a black background or vice versa (other text colours aren’t affected).
Switch between the clock and the timer: Tap the clock or timer at the top of the presenter display. The timer starts the first time you tap or swipe to advance the presentation after the first slide is displayed.
Note: In a side-by-side layout, when the next slide doesn’t immediately appear, it means a slide transition or build is still playing on the current slide. The next slide appears only when the presentation is ready to advance.
