Apple TV joins the update party with AirPlay mirroring

iOS 5 may be hogging the headlines, but Apple TV's joining the iCloud too

Not content with updating its iPhones and iPads to iOS 5, Apple has also rolled out an update for Apple TV.

The Apple TV 4.4 update includes support for iCloud service Photo Stream, AirPlay Mirroring – which enables you to wirelessly mirror your iPhone 4S or iPad screen on Apple TV – and a new Trailers area for browsing movie trailers.

American users also get access to a free Wall Street Journal Live subscription, while the paid sports subscriptions have been bolstered with content from the National Hockey League.

The update also adds three new slideshow themes – Photo Wall, Flip-up and Shifting Tiles – and fixes some security issues.
