Today, after much speculation, Apple released version 10.1 of its iTunes music and iThing synchronization suite. The relatively small, point-upgrade has been highly-anticipated by some members of the technology community as it brings with it AirPlay and iOS 4.2 compatibility. The official list of improvements is as follows:
• Use AirPlay to instantly and wirelessly stream videos from iTunes to the all-new Apple TV.
• Sync with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 4.2.
• Provides a number of important stability and performance improvements.
In unison with the iTunes update, Apple also released an updated build of iOS 4.2 for the iPad via its developer portal. There were no release notes included with the new build to indicate what differs from the first 4.2 GM candidate.
