The BBC has provided an update for its successful iPlayer application revealing that the catch-up player will now support the iPad's Retina Display. The broadcaster revealed the news via the official BBC iPlayer Twitter account.
"Hot news: BBC iPlayer update for iOS with improved video performance and retina graphics released today," the Tweet read.
According to the app's iTunes listing, the update all includes better playback thanks to improved video performance; improved accessibility, which includes more Voice Over controls; and bug fixes, and other general tidying. The BBC says we can also expect smoother performance, too.
