September iPod Event: In iOS 4.2, AirTunes Becomes AirPlay

Another new feature coming to the iPad with iOS 4.2 is AirPlay. But what is it? It’s an update to Airtunes that supports more than just music. It does all your media

“Now, what is AirPlay? You know what AirTunes is… listen to music from all over your house from your mobile device,” said Jobs. We’re changing the name of AirTunes to AirPlay, and it’s not just music anymore. You can stream all kinds of media anywhere in your house.”

It’ll come to the iPad and hopefully other iOS devices in November.
