iOS 11.4 – Novità

Ieri sera è stato rilasciato l’update per iOS versione 11.4 che introduce alcune funzioni presentate durante le conferenze Apple dei mesi scorsi.

Le note principali e più importanti sono:

  • Il supporto completo ad Airplay 2 per permettere la gestione degli HomePod.
  • La possibilità di gestire contemporaneamente due o più dispositivi Airplay 2 e di riprodurre la musica in sincrono su tutti contemporaneamente.
  • Utilizzare Siri per controllare Airplay 2.
  • Ricevere una chiamata o giocare sull’iPhone/iPad senza interrompere lo streaming Audio con Airplay 2.
  • Memorizzare le conversazioni di iMessage su iCloud
  • Tutti i messaggi sono completamente sincronizzati tra i vari dispositivi senza più dover manualmente gestire i vari aggiornamenti.
