The BBC has just finished what was probably the best coverage of the Olympic games in the world, but the corporation is not slowing down. Today the BBC released an update to its wildly popular BBC iPlayer app for iOS.

The major feature improvement in this update is support for the new iPad’s Retina display. Other changes include improved video performance for better playback, bug fixes and “general tidying, so you’ll notice even smoother performance,” and more Voice Over controls for better accessibility.

BBC iPlayer version 1.3.2 is a free download from the UK App Store.

Now let’s just hope BBC and Apple can agree to get iPlayer on the Apple TV.
