Apple introduced a more theatrical option for Apple TV owners in tvOS 10 called Dark Mode. Instead of the normal light grey interface, this provides a different flavor for night viewing or those who prefer this look. The color change affects tvOS throughout the system menus and within particular apps. Currently there is no way to make Dark Mode switch on automatically at sunset or a specific time.
Apple has released a slew of firmware updates this week, including tvOS 9.2.2 for the Apple TV. While the 9.2.2 update does not include any of the new features that are coming with tvOS 10 this fall, the update is worth installing. Over the past two months, Apple has worked on many bug fixes, performance improvements, and security enhancements for the fourth-generation Apple TV.
The forthcoming update to Apple TV continues to bring fresh surprises for owners of Apple's set top box. Many improvements are coming to tvOS 10, including single-sign-on support and an upgrade to Siri's capabilities. Siri has already opened new doors thanks to the bundled Siri Remote, which simplifies many functions on the Apple TV interface. Four main highlights are coming to Siri with tvOS 10, which is expected to launch this fall.
