AirPlay 2 FAQ: What it is, how it works, and which devices support it

Macworld - Fri, 08/10/2018 - 12:52

Updated 08/10/18: Denon and Marantz are rolling out firmware updates to a few of their A/V receivers, adding AirPlay 2 support.

And it’s one that Samsung is winning hands-down: The top-of-the-line Note 9 costs $1,250, $100 more than the most expensive iPhone X you can buy.
