Airplay is most likely the most exciting iOS feature since multitasking. It has huge potential, and we’re still waiting to see what Apple will do with it, they already leaked a couple of details this week that will lead you to think good about it.
Apple told Fox News during a review of Apple TV that, they will open the feature to developers. They will definitely let apps stream audio and video over the air, which is awesome. Will Apple take it even further and allow apps to stream to an external monitor of sorts? We don’t know right now, but it sure is interesting.
Big apps like Hulu or Netflix restricting the use of the feature can’t be underestimated. This is uncharted territory when it comes to licensing deals, so it might not even be up to the developers.
So what do you think Apple will do? Let us know in the comments below.
These are the exact words from engadget about the iPhone 4G
Well what do you know about this? With all those rumors flying around that the iPhone 4G we’d spotted was no more than a Japanese knock-off of an Apple product, it was starting to look like this thing was too good to be true. That is until one of the Engadget editors spotted what seems to be solid proof that this is — in fact — the next iPhone. If you’ll recall, the night before the iPad was revealed, we had leaked shots of the device from what appeared to be an Apple test lab. Upon further inspection of these pictures today, the aforementioned editor discovered that the new iPhone 4G we’ve just gotten photos of is actually sitting on the table beside the iPad prototype! Imagine how blown our minds were when we realized we have had a photo of the next iPhone for months! As you can see in the pic above, the left side of the new device is clearly visible on this table in the upper right hand corner, and since we believe that these photos come directly from an Apple testbed, it’s hard to deny that the phone you’ve just seen is in fact the real deal. Not only that, but we suspect that the device on the tablet itself is also a version of the new phone (you can see what looks like aluminum along the bottom) which seems to be housed in some type of iPhone 3G-like case.
Additionally, a source — who confirms this is the next Apple iPhone — also tells us that the device apparently does have a higher res screen on-board, a front-facing camera, a higher resolution camera with flash, and takes MicroSIM cards (that’s the little “button” around the side you see in the Twitpic which is floating around the internet). We’re working on uncovering more info, but right now you can take a look at the proof above for yourself, and in the gallery below.
