Apple TV 6.0 Software Update is available for Download again


Over the weekend, Apple had pulled the Apple TV 6.0 Software Update after reports of bricking issue.

9to5Mac now reports that has released a tweaked version of the software update, which probably includes a fix for the bug that caused the bricking issues.

The build number of the new Apple TV 6.0 Software Update is 11A502, compared to 11A470e of the older version. While many users were able to successfully upgrade their Apple TVs, there were quite a few reports of Apple TVs being bricked due to the update. Some of our readers had also confirmed that the update had bricked their Apple TV.

Apple hasn’t issued a statement on the issue so far. The iOS 7 update for Apple TV, which is officially named as “Apple TV 6.0″ includes the follow features:

  • iCloud photos and videos: You can view photos and videos from your shared photo streams
  • Podcasts: Sync podcasts and podcast stations across your iOS devices and Apple TV

You can update your Apple TV via the Settings menu (General -> Update Software). If you did have issues, however, you can connect your Apple TV to iTunes using a micro-USB cable and do a clean install by following the instructions given here.

Here are the direct download links:

Let us know how the upgrade goes, and your thoughts about the new features.
