Apple Seeds tvOS 16.1 Release Candidate to Developers


Apple today seeded the release candidate version of tvOS 16.1 update to developers ahead of an expected public release on Monday, October 24 alongside iOS 16.1, iPadOS 16.1, and macOS Ventura. The release candidate version comes one week after the launch of the fourth beta.

tvOS updates are typically minor, focusing on under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements rather than outward-facing changes. No new features were found in the tvOS 16.1 betas.

Apple shares some information on tvOS releases in its tvOS support document, which is updated after each tvOS launch. tvOS 16 brought enhanced multiuser support, Personalized Spatial Audio when using AirPods, and Accessibility improvements.

Though we don’t often know what’s new in tvOS during the beta testing process, we let MacRumors readers know when new updates are available so those who are developers can download it upon release.Related Roundup: Apple TVBuyer’s Guide: Apple TV (Buy Now)Related Forum: Apple TV and Home Theater
