Apple Launches tvOS 10 To The Public

Apple has officially announced that its latest and greatest television operating system, as well as the latest entry in the tvOS family, tvOS 10, has now began rolling out to all compatible Apple-based set-top box devices for download and update.

tvOS 10 includes some new features as well as other improvements such as:

  • Siri is now available in more countries with expanded capabilities and more powerful searches 
  • Single Sign-on for Pay-TV Apps
  • iOS users can download the new Apple TV Remote app with touch navigation, Siri and game play support
  • Apple Music has an all-new design, bringing greater clarity and simplicity to every aspect of the experience. The Library, For You, Browse and Radio tabs have been completely redesigned to provide an even greater sense of place, and a Search tab has been added to make finding music even easier
  • Photos for Apple TV now supports the new Memories feature, making it easy to rediscover meaningful moments in a user’s photo library and share them on the big screen
  • While users love the bright and fresh Apple TV interface, some may prefer a darker background to fit a home theater environment or darker rooms, so now users can select a dark background for Apple TV
  • Universal apps will now automatically download on Apple TV and show up on the Home screen when an app has been added to a user’s iOS device
  • When a keyboard appears on Apple TV, one will also appear on nearby iOS devices that are logged into the same iCloud account, making entering text even more convenient
tvOS 10 is now available to download as a free update on the Apple TV 4th-Gen by going to System > Software Update.
