ITV have updated the ITV Player app for iOS. The new version introduces ads on the home page which ITV say is to “keep your ITV Player experience free” and the new version is optimised for the iPhone 5 and iOS6.

In the release notes they say that iOS 4.3 support is going to be withdrawn in January so if you have a device still on 4.3 it’s time to upgrade.

The app is free in the app store

What’s New in Version 2.1

ITV Player for iOS v2.1 brings you:

– Support for iPhone 5 users
We’ve optimised video playback to use the additional screen area

– iOS6 support and bug fixes

– Sponsored homepage and programme pages to keep your ITV Player experience free

Whilst we endeavour to maintain the highest build standard in the application and thoroughly test on the range of devices in the market, we appreciate you raising any bugs or general feedback with our Customer Support Team.

Please be aware that the next release of ITV Player scheduled for January 2013 will require iOS 5. For users on iOS 4.3 we recommend that you upgrade to continue enjoying ITV programmes.
