will get more Chromecast-y in an iOS 7 update next week

Photo: cnet.comWe mentionedlast weekthat an software update would allow owners to strm content from a friend’s box elsewhere, andAllThingsDnow has a little more info on how this will work.The new software will allow people who have purchased content from ’s iTunes store to play that stuff on other people’s s, via its Airplay system.
The part is that they will be able to tell an box they don’t own to strm the media they do own, directly from the cloud. That’s a change from the current system, which requires users to download stuff to their i and iPads and fling it to the from there. It also echoes the way Google’s new Chromecast device works …It’s yet another move by to embracing thecloud, which is perhaps also why therumored128GB iPhone 5S didn’t make an apprance: local storage is rapidly becoming old-hat.The new functionality is said to be arriving on 18th September, so is presumably built intoiOS 7.
