You may notice a few more icons on your Apple TV than you did before since Apple just deployed an update to the Apple TV to add a ton of new content.
Alongside the release of iOS 7.1 beta, Apple has issued a new Apple TV software beta. The new beta specifically “enables users to mirror content of an iPad to an Apple TV using AirPlay.”
The air may be extra chilly around here this week (or unseasonably warm around your camp-Thanks Global Warming!) but the pix picks are sizzling so let’s crank up the heat!
Jony Ive – to the world he is Apple’s Senior Vice President, Design, reporting directly to Apple CEO Tim Cook. He is the leading technology innovator of the world, a whiz who has for decades been the head of the world’s best design team and whom Steve Jobs called his “spiritual partner.” However, little is known of Jonathan Ive’s true story and his rise to Apple’s chief innovator. Leander Kahney’s newest book, entitled Jony Ive: The Genius Behind Apple’s Greatest Products, has changed this and demystified the creative genius.
Apple has created the awesome platform of AirPlay to get your iOS device displays into Apple TV‘s large screen. But the major drawback has always been the lack of AirReceiving enabled devices. There are some great apps, like AirServer or Reflector, that mirror iPhone and iPad screens to your Mac, and now there is a new app called X-Mirage that does the same job, but promises to take AirPlay to the next level.
