Sonos has released updates to its iPhone and iPad apps that allow iOS 6 users to access their device's onboard music library and stream it through their Sonos system.

While the Sonos doesn't add AirPlay as such, the update lets the user access iTunes from within the Sonos app menu, something that most streaming and DLNA apps don't allow for non-AirPlay devices.

The device's music will appear on the menu under "This iPhone", and will list songs, playlists and podcasts.

Sonos describes this as a major update; it follows two other recent updates that added the Murfie CD service and improvements to the Spotify app.
