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.
Fans of The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul, TURN and other AMC original series can now watch directly on the Apple TV. AMC Networks released its official tvOS app for the fourth-generation Apple TV on the App Store. As is the case with many networks, the app is free to download but some content requires TV provider login for streaming access.
One highlight of the Apple TV interface is the design of alerts. Minimalist grey boxes with a blurred background make options clear and buttons are easy to select with the Siri Remote. Not only are they functional, but tvOS alerts look great. The jailbreak tweak Palert brings a similar tvOS-inspired appearance to iOS notifications on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
