Apple has just provided developers with the first beta of tvOS 9.2.2, the operating system designed to run on the fourth-generation Apple TV. tvOS 9.2.2 comes one week after the public launch of tvOS 9.2.1, a minor update focusing on bug fixes.
As a minor 9.x.x update, tvOS 9.2.2 is likely to focus on bug fixes and performance improvements to address issues discovered since the release of tvOS 9.2.1, and Apple’s release notes do say the update contains bug fixes and security improvements. Any outward-facing changes found in the tvOS 9.2.2 beta will be included below.
For developers that want to install the new beta, the fourth-generation Apple TV must be plugged into a computer with a USB-C to USB-A cable. Once the set-top box is connected to the computer, the beta software must be downloaded from iTunes and installed on the device directly.
