That means people will be able to access all their messages, even if they get a new Apple device, and deleting a message on one device gets rid of it across all of your devices.
Apple on Tuesday rolled out the iOS 11.4 software update for iPhones and iPads. AirPlay lets users stream audio or video from an Apple device to another through Wi-Fi connectivity, and also mirror what's on their device.
Aside from that, iOS 11.4 also brings AirPlay 2 support. This free software update introduces the most advanced, easy to use, wireless multi-room audio system using AirPlay 2 to play music in any room from any room, move music from one room to another or play the same song everywhere using an iOS device, HomePod, Apple TV or by asking Siri. It reintroduces AirPlay 2 features, allowing audio content to be played on multiple compatible devices throughout the home. Nevertheless, the new change is likely to convince other multimedia device manufacturers to integrate the new protocol.More news: Nipah virus claims one more life, Death toll rises to 11
The AirPlay 2 update also allows two HomePods to connect via stereo pairing. Once updated, head into the Home app on your iPhone, select the HomePod you'd like to pair, tap Details and then Create Stereo Pair. This innovative stereo sound provides a wide, nearly three dimensional soundstage for an incredible listening experience anywhere in the room. Following the update, AirPlay 2 opens up a whole world of multi-room streaming capabilities that were previously not available on the iPhone or iPad, such as controlling multiple speakers, which, up until now you were only able to do on the MacBook.
Apple's HomePod - the company's answer to Google Home and Amazon Echo - will finally be available for purchase by Canadian, French, and German consumers on June 18th. If the feature is enabled, iMessages will be stored in the cloud. These include attachments and photos too, saving more storage space on your device. Subsequently, if you delete a message on your iPhone, it will also get deleted on other iOS devices and vice-versa.
This isn't a huge update in itself, but the inclusion of Messages on iCloud makes it a noteworthy update.
