Jobs: iTunes Extras, LP coming back to Apple TV

updated 05:55 pm EDT, Tue November 2, 2010

Apple CEO says new Apple TV regaining Extras, LP

Apple chief Steve Jobs in a brief e-mail said that iTunes Extras and iTunes LP would come to the redesigned Apple TV. The switch from Mac OS X roots to iOS had seen both of the features dropped, but the CEO sent a message from his iPhone reassuring a MacRumors fan that the two components were "coming." It's not known, though unlikely, that the update will ship in an Apple TV firmware update alongside iOS 4.2.

Both of the features were designed to run natively at 720p and were considered ideal fits for Apple TV since they could play at native resolution.

An adaptation of iTunes Extras movie components and iTunes LP music to iOS could make translating them to the iPad relatively simple. The small screens of the iPhone and iPod are less likely to be workable, but the iPad could use the format with little scaling.
