AirPlay is one of the new features that was recently introduced in the iOS 4.2 update, it basically lets you stream video from your iPhone or iPad to your Apple TV.
There are a couple of features that we would like to see added to AirPlay, like streaming from 3rd party apps and also video streaming within Safari.
Now it seems that these features will be added next year, according to a recent email a MacRumors reader got from Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs.
Q: Hi, I recently updated both my iPhone 4 and iPad to 4.2. I think my favourite feature is airplay. This is seriously amazing and makes sharing content seamless. I just purchased Apple TV and was wondering are you ever going to make airplay video work for videos in safari and 3rd party apps? I hope to get a response. 🙂
A: Yep, hope to add these features to Airplay in 2011.
We are hoping that Apple will also add some more functions to their Apple TV, the major one is apps, this would totally change the Apple TV, and change it from a gadget that most of us use occasional into one we would use on daily basis.Filed Under: Apple, Apple iPad, Apple iPhone
