Software Beta For Apple TV Also Launches, Improves AirPlay Mirroring
Besides publishing iOS 7.1 beta for registered developers, Apple also released prerelease software for its Apple TV, too. The update, which registered developers can download and install, enhances Apple's AirPlay Mirroring feature for iPad users. As a reminder, on the iOS side Apple's iOS 7.1 beta adds a new HDR Auto feature to the built-in Camera app, it adds an updated Yahoo logo, and it also ships with a number of performance improvements and enhancements. Though no release date for the software has been announced, last year Apple launched iOS 6.1 beta to developers in November, and went on to release the update to the public in January. Not to leave Apple TV owners out of the fun, Apple has released prerelease beta software for its set-top box, too, though known changes are - as of this writing - somewhat sketchy. Apple does explain that the update "enables users to mirror the content of an iPad to an Apple TV using AirPlay," but little further information is provided. Cult of Mac offers the following screenshot: [caption id="attachment_487538" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Apple TV software beta.[/caption] As usual, the update can be downloaded from Apple's Developer Center, and as you can see in the above screenshot, the prerelease software is compatible with the second- and third-generation Apple TV.
