Apple Seeds tvOS 11 Beta 1 to Developers

Apple TV 4

Today, Apple took the stage at this year’s WWDC to unveil the newest features for its updated platforms. While tvOS 11 technically got some time on stage, Apple actually decided to wait to go over what’s next until “later this year.”

However, that hasn’t stopped the company from seeding the first developer beta of tvOS 11 to developers today. The first developer beta is build 15J5284e, and it’s available now to registered developers if they want to prepare accordingly.

While Apple was not quick to point out any new feature for tvOS 11 today, the company did announce that, confirming prior rumors, Amazon’s Prime Video service would indeed roll out to the set-top box later this summer.

To test the latest generation of tvOS, the Apple TV 4 must be connected to a computer via the USB-C cable, and installing the latest software by that means. The software can be downloaded from the dedicated developers website.

If any new features are discovered in the first developer beta, we will update this post accordingly.
