Home Your Tech Entertainment Entertainment Sonos adds iOS6 streaming skills

Wireless home music company Sonos has listened to customers and added the oft-demanded iDevice streaming to its repetoire.

 The company announced yesterday that it would allow users to stream directly from an iOS6 device, bypassing Apple's AirPlay system.

Sonos has been around for a few years and its aim is to equip every room in your home with a speaker.

The base Sonos system streams your home music library, or web radio including Pandora or Spotify, from any computer connected to your network, or directly from a Network Attached Storage Drive.

With this update, your iOS6 iDevice's music will appear on the Sonos menu under "This iPhone," and will list all available songs, playlists, and podcasts.

Sonos said this as a major update; it follows other recent updates that made improvements to the Spotify app, as well as Apple's controversial release of the iTunes 11.
