Can anyone confirm/deny that 4.3.3/4.2.8 brings AirPlay to the verizon iPhone?
If so I am updating this time but only when a untethered jb is released
Verizon iphone has no airplay ?
Wow that sucks
Current iOS on Verizon does not support video airplay
It does have audio airplay however.
I was thinking of switching to verizon but now i dont think so
Just checked on my Verizon iPhone running iOS 4.2.8, and it IS allowing me to airplay video to my Apple TV. I don't usually airplay, as I just stream via homesharing from my Macbook Pro to my Apple TV, so I can't say if this is "new" or not. But, I can definitely Airplay video.
And just for good measure:
downloading now. This is awesome news! have you noticed any improvements in performance?
Home sharing streaming to the phone from iTunes, no. That needs 4.3.x.
Come on Apple, get a move on!!
It works from Apple's apps like it always has in 4.2.x. However, third party apps that support it can't stream more than audio in 4.2.8. None of the 4.3 features are here.
That's what I want is the home sharing I have no use for airplay right now.
future, iOS 5 please
Conflicting information here.
So iOS 4.2 brought AirPlay video streaming to a few select Apple apps like iPod/Videos and YouTube. The Verizon iPhone should have been been able to do that from day one, as it shipped with iOS 4.2.5/4.2.6.
iOS 4.3 introduced support for AirPlay video streaming from Safari and third-party apps. iMovie for iOS is another one that requires iOS 4.3 for streaming projects via AirPlay.
So to settle this once and for all, can anybody with a Verizon iPhone double check to make sure they do have the AirPlay capabilities from 4.2 and NOT those from 4.3 with the new iOS 4.2.8? Remember, we're specifically talking about video here. Krevnik says that this is the case, but we'd like a few more data points to counteract claims that there has been a change.
We've seen just a couple reports claiming that video AirPlay has been added to the Verizon iPhone with 4.2.8, but we think it's confusion over the limited support that originally existed vs. what non-Verizon devices can do under 4.3.
Airplay works on Verizon iphone 4.2.8
Thanks to gdjsnyder's posts, and playing around with my settings, I realized that Airplay works through the free Remote App, not straight through iTunes, as it does on 4.3 on my iPad. Remote is a nice remote , I think better than the slim silver thing they give you with AppleTV. You just need to have all devices on the same wifi network. Hope this helps.
