Apple's Home Sharing is Back in the Latest Beta of iOS

By Chris Mills on at

Apple upset a significant portion of its user base (case in point: the excellent email below) when it disabled Home Sharing for iOS devices in iOS 8.4. Thankfully, it looks like things will turn around by the time iOS 9 publicly launches.

In the latest public beta of iOS 9, Home Sharing has been re-enabled for iOS devices. The reinstatement isn’t really a surprise: Apple VP Eddy Cue had publicly promised to bring back the feature before; most likely, it was disabled while Apple hashed out an agreement with music labels.

There’s precious little else new in iOS 9, save for a cool new Handoff UI feature that appears at the bottom of the app switcher. [Apple Insider]
