Apple Begins Approving iOS 4.3 AirPlay Apps
As reported by AppAdvice, Apple’s App Store seems to have started to approve apps that take advantage of AirPlay video found in iOS 4.3.
These app approvals have already started with iOS 4.3 yet to be publicly available. So while an app may have been updated, the majority of users will be unable to take advantage of iOS 4.3 features.
An example of this is StreamToMe, a newly-approved AirPlay-compatible app that allows users to stream content from Macs and PCs to iOS devices via WiFi or 3G.
The changes in version 3.5 of StreamToMe are seen below:
What’s New in Version 3.5
– Auto detect subtitle encodings
– Preliminary support for WTV files
– Support for AirPlay video (requires iOS 4.3)
– Fixed a crash bug for large or slow folders
Two weeks ago, Apple released the first beta of iOS 4.3. This was followed a week later with the second beta. In keeping with the iOS 4.3 release cycle, tomorrow Apple should release the third beta, if there is a third beta.
With iOS 4.3 apps already being approved, we may see the final iOS 4.3 release very soon.
