The BBC has this week announced the release of a new update for their BBC iPlayer application on the iOS platform, which comes with a number of new tweaks, enhancements and features.

One of the biggest of these is support for the Spotlight feature on the platform, allowing users to search BBC iPlayer directly from their iOS home screen.

This makes it easier to find the programs and series that you want to watch on the platform.

The new update has been called Version 4.16 and is available to download from the iTunes App Store today, the BBC explained more with the following:

Get the most out of iOS 9 and iPlayer – you can now use Spotlight search to find programmes. On top of that, you can also take advantage of ‘Handoff’ – so you can pick up where you left off on another iOS device.

In addition to all that good stuff, we’ve also included a fix for a particularly nasty crash on launch, and last but not least, you can now find an entire catalogue of iPlayer programmes for a channel via the A-Z option in the channel page.
