New updates to AirPlay allow you to play photo slideshows, web video, and sound and video from apps on your Apple TV.

Preferences for iPad switch

Apple got a lot of complaints from customers when they changed the iPad's switch to a mute button instead of orientation lock. Now you have the option to make the switch will control one or the other.

Personal hotspot for iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 will act as a wifi hotspot for up to five devices, but additional carrier fees will apply.

You can now sync and back up your iPad 2 over your wireless network. There's no longer a need for syncing with a USB cable.

New Photobooth app
