AirPlay was one of the more anticipated features of the recently released iOS 4.2 update, but users were a bit dismayed to find out that the feature was unable to stream video content from third party apps and Safari to their HDTV’s.
Looking to see if this was all AirPlay was ever going to offer, a user emailed Steve Jobs to figure out what was going on. Luckily, Jobs noted that Apple is planning to increase AirPlay functionality in 2011.
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.
Jobs: Yep, hope to add these features to Airplay in 2011.
