Apple Officially Releases iOS 11.4 with AirPlay 2, Messages in iCloud”

The update brings the much-anticipated AirPlay 2 transfer protocol, announced at WWDC back in June last year and initially planned to reach Apple devices via iOS 11 in the third quarter of last year.

In addition to that, iOS 11.4 adds AirPlay 2 support, and brings stereo support for the company's first smart speaker, the HomePod.

Approximately 2GB in size, iOS 11.4 supports all iPhone models from the iPhone 5s through iPhone X, all iPads from the iPad Air and iPad mini 2 through the iPad Pro 10.5-inch, and the sixth-generation iPod touch. To download, you need to go to Settings General Software Update and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Music can originate from either an iOS device or from the Wi-Ficonnected HomePods themselves. Also, it is advisable to back up your data before beginning the update process.

And so far things are going as planned", he said, expressing hope that the quick response will speed containment of the outbreak. The WHO has deployed 50 public health experts to support the health ministry of the DRC with response activities.

If you've got a really good memory, you may recall that one of the promised improvements to the Messages app in iOS 11 was Messages in iCloud, which was going to seamlessly sync messages between your many devices. AirPlay 2's multi-room audio allows iOS users to stream music or podcasts to supported devices in any room using Control Center's destination controls, in-app controls, or Siri. Additional AirPlay 2 speakers are apparently coming from Bang & Olufsen, Bluesound, Bose, Bowers & Wilkins, Denon, Libratone, Marantz, Marshall, Naim, Pioneer and Sonos, as well.

Thanks to AirPlay 2, you'll be able to sync up music playback on multiple AirPlay 2-compatible speakers throughout your home.

The new iOS build also includes AirPlay 2. Nevertheless, the new change is likely to convince other multimedia device manufacturers to integrate the new protocol.

Stereo pairing allows you to play through HomePods simultaneously.

There is also an advanced beamforming that is claimed to provide wider soundstage than a traditional stereo pair. Apple has caught up with its chief competition.

Messages in iCloud have been coming soon for nearly a while now, and its good the firm is finally delivering on their promise.

Beyond support for stereo pairing, Apple is mum on other new features in iOS 11.4, and it points users to the "Tips" app in the system to learn more. This will be helpful for those who are short on space. If you don't see the update, try again a little later.
