Apple Remote for iPhone updated to include Airplay support


It's odd to control my Mac with Remote, but yes, it works fine. The next test will be with Apple TV, which Santa is bringing to me...

What would be nice is if I could stream videos I've taken directly from my phone to my AppleTV, I still can't work out why this isn't possible.

Tried it out this morning. For some reason the AirPlay icon didn't appear for me, although the version is 2.1. Does anyone else has this issue? Do I need to set something up before it works?

Does this update allow you to stream music from an iPhone directly to speakers connected to Airport Express?
