Here's what Apple will be offering with this latest update.
Apple will be rolling out their latest iOS revision today, which will include some adjustments to key functions found within their hugely popular iPhone.
AirPlay 2 will be introduced to the masses, which allows an individual to control their home audio system wirelessly through their phone. A spokesperson for the company reveals how "while listening to music, it’s as easy as selecting or unselecting where the music is playing in Control Centre, or users can ask Siri to play music in any room, a group of rooms, or everywhere in the home."
Alongside Airplay 2, the iOS 11.4 will allow any owners of the HomePod to pair two units in the same room, which effectively allows them to act like stereo speakers. "With two HomePod speakers set up as a stereo pair, this soundstage gets even wider, delivering room-filling sound that is more spacious than a traditional stereo pair from a speaker that’s just under 7-inches tall. Using spatial awareness to sense their location in the room, each HomePod automatically adjusts the audio to sound great wherever it is placed and sound great together, using an Apple-designed wireless peer-to-peer direct link to communicate with each other and play music completely in sync."
Furthermore, iMessages and any photos/documents contained within will now be able to be stored in the iCloud, effectively freeing up space on one's device.
