iTunes 12.6 enables rent once, watch anywhere
Amongst all its other announcements yesterday, Apple snuck in iTunes 12.6, which most notably enables the ability to rent a movie from the iTunes Store and watch it on any device.1 It does, however, require iOS 10.3 or tvOS 10.2, so those are probably coming sooner rather than later. Kirk McElhearn also notes that iTunes 12.6 restores the ability to open playlists in separate windows from earlier versions. Anybody catch any other changes?
- I do rent movies on my Apple TV fairly often, but I don’t really jump between devices, which explains why I was rather surprised to find that this wasn’t already a thing. ↩
