Apple on Monday released tvOS 12.4, the most recent version of the tvOS operating system, which is compatible with fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV devices.
tvOS 12.4 is a free update that can be downloaded to fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV device by going to the device’s settings app and going to “System” -> “Software Update.” If you have automatic software updates enabled your Apple TV will be automatically upgraded to the new software version.
Apple doesn’t provide release notes for tvOS updates, and no new front-facing features were unveiled during beta testing, so it is uncertain as to what new or improved features might come along for the ride with the tvOS 12.4 update. it is likely that the update includes the usual bug fixes and performance improvements.
Apple also released new 7.3.1 Apple TV software for the third-generation Apple TV.
Today’s update could be one of the last we’ll see for tvOS 12, as tvOS 13 is currently being beta tested by developers and public beta testers, and should be released to the public sometime this fall.
