Apple officially announced the arrival of new versions of some of its main operating systems, which are watchOS 7, iPadOS, and tvOS 14. Now, the Cupertino company has already started to release the operating system update aimed at Apple TV, with some very interesting features.
To begin with, the Home section was introduced in the Control Center, which allows the user to control several devices connected to the HomeKit and, thus, make the Apple device a hub with total control for the user. In addition, there is also the presence of the new Camera Feed mode of the Home Kit, which is made especially for models of larger TVs.
Another novelty, which was quite expected, is the Picture-in-Picture mode, which allows the user to choose the main content to watch while another is displayed in a small window on the same screen.
Gamers will also benefit from the new update for tvOS 14. Starting with the new version, the Apple Arcade platform receives multi-user support, which will allow each player to have their own profile and thus maintain control greater of your individual results.
Support for third-party controls has also been expanded with the possibility of pairing the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 or the Xbox Adaptive Controllers. With that, users will be able to take advantage of the haptic feedback of these joysticks in the games available on the platform.
The user will also benefit from the system interface, which will allow us to manually define a category for the screen saver.
Finally, and not least, the support for playing videos on YouTube with 4K resolution stands out, which was also another function long-awaited by users of the Apple TV operating system.
How to install
To update the device to the new version, just perform the following procedures:
- Turn on Apple TV
- Access the Device Settings app
- Navigate to the System option
- Select “Software Update”.
It is important that, throughout the procedure, the accessory has a stable internet connection. In addition, the device cannot be turned off during installation, as, if it is, the system may be corrupted and the device will be locked.
