Apple Seeds tvOS 17.1 Release Candidate to Developers

Share

Apple today seeded the release candidate of an upcoming tvOS 17.1 to developers for testing purposes, with the software coming a week after the launch of the third tvOS 17.1 beta.

Registered developers can download the tvOS 17.1 update by opting in to the beta through the Settings app on the Apple TV. A registered developer account is required.

tvOS updates are often minor in scale compared to other operating system updates, focusing primarily on bug fixes and smaller improvements rather than notable outward-facing changes. tvOS 17.1 adds a new favoriting option to the Music app on the ‌Apple TV‌, along with some other minor Music changes.

Apple shares some information on tvOS releases in its tvOS support document, which is updated after each tvOS launch, but Apple does not provide notes during beta testing.

Though we don’t often know much about what’s new in tvOS betas, we let MacRumors readers know when new updates are available so those who are developers can download new software upon release. Apple has also seeded a new beta of HomePod 17.1 software for developers.Related Roundup: Apple TVBuyer’s Guide: Apple TV (Neutral)Related Forum: Apple TV and Home Theater
