Before, only iTunes on the desktop users could view extras that came with movies that were purchased from Apple; things like production stills and deleted scenes.

Apple is also opening it up for movie studios to add additional content at any time, and for free. The only Apple devices that still don’t have access to iTunes Extras are iOS devices, though that will change with iOS 8, Apple says.
