Hands On with tvOS 9.2 Beta

Hands On with tvOS 9.2 Beta

Earlier this week, Apple released all new betas for all of their operating systems, including iOS 9.3, Mac OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan, watchOS 2.2, and tvOS 9.2. It was actually the first watchOS beta since watchOS 2 over the Summer, so this is all kind of a big deal. tvOS 9.2 brings an update that most owners of the new Apple TV have anxiously been waiting for, the reappearance of the Podcasts app. Of…

Apple Releases iOS 9.2, Xcode 7.2

Today, Apple released iOS 9.2 and Xcode 7.2 to the public. At the time of this writing, there’s still no sign of Mac OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan or tvOS, or even a watchOS update, but then again, Apple still hasn’t updated their developer site to reflect today’s updates, so anything could happen. Apple was pushing out new betas for iOS 9.2, Mac OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan, tvOS 9.2, and Xcode 7.2 weekly until…

Apple Releases tvOS 9.1 Beta 2 to Developers

Apple released another round of betas today, making it seem like they’re now on a weekly cycle. tvOS 9.1 will be the first update to tvOS since its debut last month with the new Apple TV. Of course, Apple has always released Apple TV beta software to developers, despite never having an App Store before. It would always come alongside iOS betas and it would just be called Apple TV beta. The funny thing is…

Apple Releases First Post-GM tvOS Beta

Apple released new betas of all of their stuff today. We saw iOS 9.2 Beta 2, we saw Mac OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan Beta 2, we got Xcode 7.2 Beta 2, and of course, tvOS 9.1 Beta. I want to take a moment to talk about version numbers. Apple TV, despite never having an App Store, would always release betas alongside iOS. They were always one version behind. For example, the last update that…

Apple Releases iOS 9.1, OS X 10.11.1 to the Public, tvOS GM

Apple Releases iOS 9.1, OS X 10.11.1 to the Public, tvOS GM

Today, Apple finally released iOS 9.1 to the public, along with Mac OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan. The new updates generally bring support for Unicode 8, which is a whole bunch of new emoji, mainly the middle finger emoji that we’re all looking forward to. Personally, I find the public release to be a bit of a surprise this early, mainly because the iOS 9.1 release should coincide with the release of the iPad Pro,…

Apple Releases tvOS Beta 3

Apple Releases tvOS Beta 3

Yesterday, after Microsoft made their big bang hardware announcement, Apple was out refining their existing products, releasing a new tvOS beta and a new iOS 9.1 beta. Of course, if you’re not a developer and you didn’t win a lottery to buy the dev kit, this doesn’t matter to you, because you simply can’t run it. tvOS 9 does not support the third generation Apple TV, which hasn’t been supported since iOS 8.3. By the…

Apple Releases Second tvOS Beta

Apple Releases Second tvOS Beta

Today, Apple seeded a new beta for their new tvOS. Funny, there was never a tvOS before, despite this being the fourth generation model. Former Apple TV betas were listed as simply Apple TV and could be found in the iOS section of the Apple developer web site. Now, it appears clear that Apple is no longer supporting the third generation Apple TV, despite the fact that it’s still the only one sold in stores….
