    Default Apple TV Updated to Version 6.0, Adds iTunes Radio and iCloud AirPlay Support


    Apple recently released its anticipated software update to the Apple TV today, adding support for iTunes Radio and AirPlaying content from iCloud, much like music from iTunes Match, to another person’s Apple TV. The new software update arrives just a few days after it was rumored to appear. The reports did correctly reveal that Apple was planning to update the AirPlay wireless streaming functionality of its set-top box.

    The new AirPlay over iCloud functionality allows users to take any purchased iTunes content such as music, movies or TV episodes and stream it directly to an Apple TV that may not be configured with their iTunes login credentials. The authentication is instead provided wirelessly by a connected iOS device such as an iPhone or iPad.

    Version 6.0 of the Apple TV software also adds access to purchase from the iTunes Music Store and allows users to sync their podcasts. Photos from a shared Photo Stream can also be accessed via the Apple TV. Last but not least, the software update brings the newly launched iTunes Radio service, which is similar to the established Internet streaming music provider, Pandora. Apple’s iTunes Radio debuted on Wednesday on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with the release of iOS 7 and has now made its way to the Apple TV.

    The recent software update may be the last software refresh before the company’s rumored Apple TV hardware refresh. The company took delivery of a mysterious shipment of “set-top boxes” in the days leading up to the iPhone 5S and 5C announcement but we’ll have to wait for more concrete information.

    Mine won't let me update. I'm currently on 5.3 and it says I have the latest software. I guess Apple stopped pushing the update due to problems.
