are we getting Airplay for OLED65C7T (2018 OLED) or not?


Question

There have been numerous articles over the pst year  suggesting that LG would roll AirPlay support onto the older 2018 model OLED TV's. This was even confirmed by a support person on the chat session for the Australian support site. They said it would be released before the end of 2020. 

My TV is OLED65C7T and is currently on firmware 05.80.55. 

Last week I asked the "chat now" person again and they said it was not happening. I'm not sure any of them know what they are talking about. 

Can anyone shed any light on this?

@Simon Block That is interesting that you quoted having 05.80.55 firmware on your OLED65C7T model.  I searched for that, but found only version 04.70.71. However, I seem to be directed to the Australian LG site (as it is my Locale), so maybe I am looking in the wrong place.  After a lot of searching, I found 05.80.55 under the model "OLED65B7A.AUS" so probably a similar model range?

As regards your issue, I don't beleive LG monitor this peer-to-peer support forum, so they will not (as far as I know) ever officially comment here.

Although the original AirPlay has been around since 2010, the modern AirPlay2 was only announced as being supported and integrated into Smart TV's at CES2019 show, and given the difficulties with COVID during most of 2020, I think this has slowed a LOT of R&D and testing with many manufacturers. There are probably many more factors at play, but I suspect COVID (and the resultant lack of extra revenue to allocate during a pandemic) has had a big effect on this sort of thing.  I also suspect that LG would see supporting older 2018 TV's (already purchased, so no revenue stream) as additional R&D and testing costs, with NO return on that investment, just to help iPhone or iPad users send a Netflix film to thier TV.

      TV model OLED65B6P purchased in mid-2017.
      TV software version: 05.60.06
      Web OS: 3.4.0-5706 (dreadlocks-digya)
      This is supposed to be a smart TV, it’s only 4 years old and already it can’t take advantage of recent/new features in applications such as Hulu Live TV and cloud DVR. As a result we can either settle for the older basic Hulu app which doesn’t support Hulu live TV or Hulu cloud DVR, features added by Hulu a year ago when the TV was only 3 years old. The work around is viewing through a separate appliance attached to the TV (like Roku or Fire TV Stick) or broadcasting to the TV from a smart phone or other mobile device, both which add another link in the chain connecting the signal source to the TV, and which introduce audio lagging video.
      Why isn’t LG supporting a very expensive “smart” TV that is less than 4 years old by updating the Web OS?  
      We also own another LG TV, model 32LJ550B-UA, which supports the latest Hulu app with Live TV and cloud DVR. That set was purchased in 2018. Why can’t the same software version and integrated Web OS be applied to our primary viewing TV above? This second set shows:

      LG Electronics’ SELF-LIT campaign kicks off with a collaboration with Italian luxury brand BVLGARI for its exhibition in Seoul, BVLGARI Colors. Established in Rome in 1884, BVLGARI is revered worldwide for its exclusive collections of watches, fragrances and accessories. But arguably it is jewelry that the design house is best known for. Featuring beautiful, precision-cut gemstones, precious metals of the highest grade and BVLGARI’s iconic, bold style, the prestige pieces are a gorgeous interplay of colors and textures.

      For a work of art to truly be appreciated, it must be presented in the exact color or effect the creator intended. LG’s self-lit OLED technology has been deemed by BVLGARI as the only display capable of capturing the vibrancy and exquisite detail of the brand’s jewelry in all its glory. With their ability to convey immaculate color reproduction and infinite contrast, the self-lit pixels deliver exceptionally lifelike colors as well as deep blacks and a contrast ratio that provides an incredible sense of weight and three-dimensionality.

      To truly showcase the mesmerizing beauty and variety of BVLGARI’s masterpieces, intriguing digital works of art by top Korean artists are displayed alongside the jewelry on LG self-lit based OLED screens. Divided into four themes titled Red, Blue, Green and Multicolored, the exhibition promises to offer an exhilarating experience that combines the best of traditional craftsmanship and the epitome of technological innovation from LG and BVLGARI, the two masters of colors.

      BVLGARI Colors is the first in LG’s SELF-LIT Art project series of global exhibits celebrating the heritage and history of OLED technology. LG will again partner with BVLGARI in Milan to turn premium shopping destinations including the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and BVLGARI’s flagship Serpenti Gallery in Rome into SELF-LIT Streets during Milan Design Week.

      What’s more, LG’s SELF-LIT Museum will see LG’s stunning OLED TVs displaying art at the world’s best-known museums while SELF-LIT Masterpiece will focus on the creativity of contemporary artists at renowned international art galleries. The self-lit technology of LG’s next-generation TVs boasts the accuracy and the color palette required to convey artists’ intentions without any compromise. Back in Seoul at the end of the year, LG’s SELF-LIT Bridge project will express the unique value of LG OLED and LG’s determination to bring consumers the best viewing experiences possible.
      It’s rare for a technology to be called a work of art and yet, there is perhaps no better way to describe LG OLED. Stay tuned to see how LG OLED continues to redefine the definition of art in a way no other technology can.

      I want to move my 65EF9500 from a flat wall to a corner where it would need to swing out, aka articulated, but every bracket i find says it is not compatible with the 65EF9500?  Is there something non-standard about this early OLED model?  Can anyone recommend a corner wall mount bracket?
