There were so many new features packed into iOS 8 that Apple couldn’t go through all of them on stage yesterday during WWDC 2014, and today we’re learning about another handy addition to the operating system focused on making it even easier to use AirPlay.
AirPlay lets you beam photos, video and audio recordings between Apple devices, but until now it only worked over a Wi-Fi connection. With iOS 8, however, you’ll be able to beam content from your phone to an Apple TV without using Wi-Fi. This won’t make much of a difference at home, but it will make things a whole lot easier if you’re over at a friend’s place or making a big work presentation.
Apple confirmed the update in a post highlighting how iOS 8 can work for businesses. The company also highlights improved security and data encryption and more. Speaking at WWDC, Tim Cook noted Apple’s interest in serving the enterprise market. Making AirPlay as easy and seamless to use as possible is a smart way to do just that.
