Apple Seeds tvOS 10.0.1 Beta 3 to Developers

Apple on Monday seeded the third beta of tvOS 10.0.1 to developers for testing purposes, one week after releasing the second tvOS 10.0.1 beta and a month after releasing the tvOS 10 update. tvOS 10.0.1 has been in testing since September 21.

No obvious outward-facing features were discovered in the first two tvOS 10.0.1 betas, so it’s likely the update focuses on bug fixes and under-the-hood performance improvements to address issues discovered since the release of the first version of tvOS 10.

Single sign-on, a feature that will allow Apple TV users to sign in once with their cable credentials to access all live cable content included in a cable subscription, does not appear to be included in this beta and will be introduced in the future.

tvOS 10 brings improved search, expanded Siri capabilities, a new dark mode, a Continuity option for using the iPhone for text input, automatic download of universal apps, easy access to live TV, and more.

To install tvOS 10.0.1 beta 3, Apple TV 4 owners will have to have the Apple TV plugged into a computer via the USB-C to USB-A cable. The software will need to be installed via iTunes, or through the Apple Configurator.

If there are any new discoveries made in the latest beta, we’ll update this post accordingly.
