Apple TV Tips and Tricks
Do remember those TVs that didn’t have remotes with them; and you had to get up every time just to change the channel? Pretty annoying. But nowadays the issue is having too many remotes. So, if you have an Apple TV remote, your cable box remote, and your TV remote, that’s a lot of remotes and inputs to keep switching.
Apple seeded tvOS 9.2 beta for the fourth generation Apple TV few days back, which comes with some nice new features to the stock system that shipped out with the devices.

Apple is famously known for creating a network of devices that benefit from one another working together. Steve Jobs pushed his team to create products that easily connected to one another, adding value to owning multiple Apple devices. So, if when I purchased the new Apple TV 4, I knew that my other Apple devices would play a big role in how I used my Apple TV.
Apple TV 4 is one of my favorite Apple purchases. I’ve already covered some of the basics for using the device and its new Siri Remote.

You can also restart the device should you run into any issues.
The iPhone is the most popular camera in the world. That means that iPhone owners take pictures with their phone time and time again, saving these images to their devices or their iCloud storage to be accessed and shared later. Apple TV owners can share these same images on the big screen through a screensaver or slideshow using their iCloud account.
The new, 4th Generation Apple TV introduced the new aerial view screen savers which span across major world cities and produce super-high-quality live images taken from a fancy drone. These images are really stunning to look at, but can get old after some time. Plus, if you have great photos from your last trip on your computer, it’s always cool to add a more personal, homey touch to your Apple TV. You have always been able to stream photos from My Photos or via your iCloud photos, but fewer people know that they can stream photos from any folder on their computer with Home Sharing enabled.

When you say things like HTTPS, CDN or DNS, most people don’t know or don’t care what those acronyms stand for. Just as long as they can get to iPhoneHacks.com when they type it in their search bar, everything is good. But in order for your service provider to find iPhoneHacks.com out of all the other websites in the world, it uses a DNS (Domain Name System) to translate the IP address of our site into easy to consume alphabetized characters.
