iOs 4.2 came to iPhone , iPad and iPod touch users just a days ago and from its many amazing new features , AirPlay was one the most internet new feature.AirPlay provides the solution for streaming video, audio, and photos from portable iOS devices to the new Apple TV for display on users’ televisions.Well it still has some limitation as streaming from third-party applications and even Safari limited to audio-only is not currently available in it.
According to the developers Apple has coded restrictions on video streaming and ways to work around it in a proof-o
f-concept implementation, mainstream users would obviously prefer Apple to offer full-fledged support for the feature on third-party apps through public API developers could use for their apps.
So , one Apple fan emailed Steve Jobs asking about the future of AirPlay and as we know that Jobs only replies important question so he replied this email.
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.
So , in future we can expects AirPlay features with the 3rd party apps which would definatly be a great news.
