Apple iOS 11.4 Release: 5 Reasons to Get Excited & 2 Not To



AirPlay 2

AirPlay 2

AirPlay 2 was first announced as part of iOS 11 over the summer. However, the feature didn't ship with iOS 11.0 in September, iOS 11.1 in October, iOS 11.2 in December, or iOS 11.3 in March.

Nothing is confirmed, but there's a chance the next iteration of AirPlay will emerge with iOS 11.4 when it arrives later this year. 

If you're unfamiliar with the feature, AirPlay 2 is the first major upgrade to the company's audio streaming in seven years and it comes with some exciting features including multi-room audio playback from iOS and higher level buffering.

We're excited about the latter because it should cut down on skipping and better range. Audio should continue playing while you leave Wi-Fi range.

If you can't wait for the final version of iOS 11.4 to arrive, try AirPlay 2 right now via the iOS 11.4 beta though it's currently limited to the Apple TV 4 and Apple TV 4K.
