iTunes Match Now Supports Movies, iOS 5.1 Announced
Apple today announced during a keynote address in San Francisco that its iTunes in the Cloud — or iTunes Match — service now supports 1080p movies. iOS device users will be able to access and sync their movies and television shows across Macs, iPads, iPhones, and iPods. Apple also announced a new version of the Apple TV that includes PhotoStream support. iPhone users can take pictures and the photos will be uploaded to the owner's Apple TV automatically. Apple also announced iOS 5.1, which will be available for download starting today. The chief new feature in iOS 5.1 is support for the new iTunes Match functions, photo uploads, and the Japanese language for Siri.
Review: Apple iOS 10
Apple's iOS 10 gives iPhones and iPads a healthy serving of new features. Some are easy to discover, while others are not.
First Look: Apple iOS 11
Apple debuted iOS 11 during the June 5 keynote of its annual developer conference. The refreshed mobile operating system is primed to hit iPhones and iPads later this year with improvements to the App Store, Apple Maps, the camera, Control Center, Files, keyboard, iMessage, Live Photos, Siri, screenshots, and much more.
Airplay Support Comes to Google Play Movies for iOS
Google has updated its Play Movies & TV app for iOS devices and added direct Airplay support for streaming to the Apple TV. Play Movies users have been able to push content to the Apple TV for a while, but it involved a workaround.
iOS 11 Won't Support Peer-to-Peer Apple Pay Right Away
Apple today reiterated that iOS 11 will reach iPhones, iPads, and iPods Touch beginning September 19. Not all the new features will be available at launch, however, with Apple Pay on deck for later this year.
iTunes Match /=/ iTunes in the cloud
iTunes Match = goes through your music collection and either uploads the songs it can't find or matches them the iTunes library so you can listen to your entire library anywhere you have a cell signal.
iTunes in the cloud = allows re-downloading your apps, movies, and music that you've PURCHASED from Apple.
Unless it's going to go through my video library and re-download higher quality iTunes copies or upload the ones it can't match, it ain't iTunes match. And they're not the same thing.
