Here is the procedure.
Using HDMI Cable

Depending on iPad model, the HDMI adapter may be different as well. Therefore, it is better to check first before purchasing.

The first requirement to use Airplay is simply by connecting both TV and iPad at the same Wi-Fi network. Do not worry though since it will not absorb data plan because it uses local connectivity. The setting for mirroring the image is under control center. It can be accessed by swiping up from bottom of the screen.
