Apple on Wednesday seeded the first beta of the tvOS 10.1.1 update to developers for testing on their fourth-generation Apple TV devices. The new beta comes just a few days following the release of tvOS 10.1 to the general public.
The first beta seed of tvOS 10.1.1 – build 14U707 – is now available to developers, either from the Apple Developer Center, or as an over-the-air update on Apple TV devices that have the proper beta profile installed.
tvOS betas are a bit more involved to install than beta updates for iOS and OS X. Users must connect the Apple TV to to a computer with a USB-C to USB-A cable, and install the update via iTunes or Apple Configurator. However, once a beta profile has been installed on the device, new beta releases are available over the air.
At this point, we don’t know what changes or enhancements the new beta holds in store. As a 10.1.x update, the changes are likely to be limited to bug fixes and performance enhancement. If we hear different, we’ll update you in this space.
