One of the things I most love about the Libratone Zipp is its ability to play music directly from my iOS and OS X devices. It is a small convenience but one that I have come to truly appreciate. Now Sonos has added some similar functionality. As an email this morning explains…
The latest software upgrade helps you play even more music, quickly, in deep, richly textured HiFi sound. Sonos now plays your iTunes® music direct from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch® anywhere there is a Sonos speaker or player. No more syncing your Apple® mobile device with your computer just to hear your iTunes music on Sonos. (iOS 6 required)
Once you have done this “you’ll see your iTunes songs, playlists and podcasts are all available to play on Sonos under ‘This iPhone.'”
The music you stream through the Sonos system has to be resident ON your iOS device rather than streaming through it- for example Elana streams her morning AM radio through the Zipp- but it is a huge step forward for those of us who have heavily invested in a Sonos system.
