Earlier this month, Apple released tvOS 10.1, with the new TV app, to the public. And now a new beta is available for developers.
Apple has seeded the second developer beta for tvOS 10.1.1. The new software is a minor point upgrade, and it focuses on behind-the-scenes tweaks and improvements, as well as general performance enhancements. It will also focus on any fixes necessary since the public launch of tvOS 10.1.
To update, developers must have their Apple TV connected to their computer running iTunes via a USB Type-C to USB-A cable. The software can then be downloaded and installed to the Apple TV 4 running tvOS through iTunes or the Apple Configurator. Once that initial beta software has been installed, all subsequent seeds can be downloaded as over-the-air updates.
This is the changelog Apple included with the first developer beta:
“Apple TV Software Update 10.1
TV app: Discover new content or pick up where you left off in a current show or movie—all in one unified place. The TV app brings together all your shows and movies from services that you subscribe to, plus your purchases from iTunes. This feature is available only in the United States for Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Additional: This update also includes general performance and stability improvements”
If any additional forward-facing change are discovered, we’ll update this post accordingly.
