One of the features I was pleased to see baked into iOS 5 is AirPlay Streaming. This allows iPad 2 owners, and starting tomorrow iPhone 4S owners, to mirror the contents of their iOS device on an Apple TV running the latest and greatest firmware.

My understanding is some apps will also have special features to allow more than just mirroring, such as allowing the iPad or iPhone to be a controller and the remote screen to be the display. The combination of the two are going to make these devices an excellent hybrid of console gaming platforms and mobile, all without wires.
