Apple planning AirPlay upgrade to enable streaming without WiFi


It looks like Apple is planning to improve its audio and video streaming technology(AirPlay). This information comes courtesy of a report from The Telegraph

The new AirPlay update will enable streaming devices like iPhone,iPad and iPod etc to directly send content to speakers etc without the need for a WiFi network. The Telegraph is expecting this update to be announced along side the iPhone 5 next month. Here’s what The Telegraph had to say;

Sources familiar with the iPhone-maker’s plans said that Apple wants to improve the AirPlay wireless music streaming technology, which currently requires Airplay speakers and a WiFi network. The new version will require just speakers or a hifi and an iDevice; the iPhone, iPod or iPad would form its own network to allow a direct connection and music playback.

The Telegraph is expecting Apple to promote AirPlay Direct as a replacement to the hardware connection on many iPhone/iPod docks, and allow playback of music wirelessly from device to receiver.
