Steve Jobs: “AirPlay for All Coming in 2011″. #ios

Frustrated that Apple neutered AirPlay on iOS 4.2 by limiting 3rd party apps from streaming video and photos to other iOS devices? Join the club. One distraught MacRumors reader took it upon himself to email the man Steve Jobs himself. Luckily for all of us, he responded with the following:

Yep, hope to add these features to Airplay in 2011.

It would be nice to get some insight as to why Apple made the decision to limit 3rd party services and even Safari to audio-only AirPlay from the start. Though given Apple’s nature, such information is rarely shared voluntarily.

On that note, If you’re tired of waiting, you can always jailbreak your iOS device and add “http://cydia.zone-mr.net” to your Cydia repository. Doing so will give you access to the hack that allows unfettered AirPlay functionality for all medium to all devices. Feeling a bit better?
