Apple has just seeded the third developer beta for tvOS 9.2.2, the operating system that runs on the fourth-generation Apple TV. The third tvOS 9.2.2 beta comes two weeks after the release of the second beta and more than a month after the launch of tvOS 9.2.1. tvOS 9.2.2 has been in testing since May 23.
tvOS 9.2.2 is a minor 9.x.x update, focusing on bug fixes and performance improvements. Apple’s release notes have suggested the update includes bug fixes and security improvements, and no outward-facing changes were spotted in the first two betas.
For developers that want to install the new tvOS 9.2.2 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.
Apple is also working on the next-generation version of tvOS, tvOS 10, which includes new Siri features, single sign-on cable authentication, and more. tvOS 10, currently available to developers, will be released to the public in the fall.
