Apple TV update brings Photo Stream and AirPlay Mirroring

Apple is on an updating spree, as it looks to update all of its products to fit in with the company’s new iCloud service.

It has updated its phone operating system to iOS 5; its desktop operating system, Mac OS X 10.7.2; and Apple TV too, all so you can stream your photos from device to device without having to lift a finger.

The new Apple TV update, which is available now, will bring with it a number of features besides iCloud support, including AirPlay Mirroring that lets you wirelessly mirror the contents of your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S’s screen on your TV via the Apple TV.

There is also a new trailers area promising a "whole new way to browse and view hundreds of the latest theatrical trailers" and for American Apple TV users two new streaming services: Wall Street Journal Live and Nation Hockey League that lets you watch live games and view highlights.

The Apple TV 4.4 update is available now, however like many of the Apple updates rolling out you might have issues downloading and installing it as demand on Apple’s servers is incredibly high at the moment.
