Apple has just released tvOS 10, the latest operating system designed for the fourth-generation Apple TV, bringing a range of improvements that make it easier to locate and watch content on Apple’s set-top box.
In tvOS 10, Apple has brought improved search, expanded Siri capabilities, a new dark mode, a Continuity option for using the iPhone for text input, automatic download of universal apps, and more.
Other new features include:
- Single sign-on simplifies access to entertainment apps like HBO GO and FXNOW.
- Apple Music has a new look and new features that make it easier than ever to find the music you love.
- New HomeKit support lets you dim the lights before starting a horror movie. Or lower the room temperature during the playoffs. Control all your favorite HomeKit accessories right from your TV.
- The new Memories feature works with your iCloud Photo Library to automatically find photos and videos you haven’t seen or thought about for a while. Then it displays them in a beautiful collection.
To update the fourth-gen Apple TV to tvOS 10, head into Settings, open System, then Update Software. The Apple TV will search for the update, should find it, and then start downloading it from there. Follow the on-screen instructions as necessary.
