Background
Apple AirPlay lets you stream, control, and share content from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac to your compatible Roku streaming device. You can watch movies, TV shows, and family videos, listen to popular music, or browse vacation photos. You can even mirror exactly what you see on your Apple device – all while enjoying the big-screen experience from the comfort of your couch.
Apple HomeKit provides an easy and secure way for you to use Siri and the Home app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac to control your compatible Roku device. Or, you can use scenes to group your Roku device with other HomeKit-enabled devices to control an entire room at once.
This article provides information about using AirPlay and HomeKit with your Roku device, and lists suggestions to help resolve common issues.
Is my Roku device compatible?
To determine if you can use AirPlay and HomeKit with your Roku device, you need to know the software version and device model. To find this information, go to the home screen and select Settings > System > About.
The Roku devices listed below support streaming with AirPlay 2:
DeviceModel Roku TV™ Axxxx, Cxxxx, CxxGB, 7xxxx
Roku Streambar™ 9102
Roku Smart Soundbar 9101, 9100
Roku Ultra 4800, 4670, 4661, 4662, 4660, 4640
Roku Premiere 4630, 4620, 3920
Roku Streaming Stick®+ 3811, 3810
To use AirPlay and HomeKit, your compatible Roku device must be running Roku OS 9.4 or higher. Your Roku device checks for an update every 24-36 hours or you can manually check for a software update if necessary.

Same. The only iPhone person in the house is our daughter, and I have an iPad through work. Never seemed important enough to get AppleTV for just 1-2 people, but this works. Smilie

What's the cheapest Roku Black Friday deal that will work with Airplay? My 4230X Roku apparently doesn't. Walmart has the $17 SE Streaming Stick, but that's model 3950 and I presume it wouldn't work.

HBOMax is playing hardball with Roku and as of yet isn't available on Roku devices. But IS an available iOS app, so now you'd be able to stream from your Apple devices.

Oh cool, thanks. Is it going to be slow though, streaming to your phone and then to the Roku?
