Apple Updates Apple TV, Remote for iOS with iTunes 11 Support

Apple has updated the Apple TV's software as well as the Remote app for iOS, presumably adding support for iTunes 11 and the new iCloud features introduced within it. The Apple TV release has a build number of 10A831.

The Apple TV can be updated directly on the unit by going to the Settings menu, then General, then selecting Update Software. The last Apple TV update was released back in September.
iTunes Up Next

Adds support for Up Next with iTunes 11 or iTunes Match. See upcoming songs when playing music on your Apple TV. Add new songs and edit what's queued with your Remote or with the Remote app.

Stability and performance

Includes performance and stability improvements with the iTunes Store, AirPlay, Netflix, iTunes Match, and wired Ethernet connections.

The Remote app has been updated with a new view for iPad as well, one that looks almost identical to iTunes 11. It allows users to control iTunes or the Apple TV using their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch over a Wi-Fi network.
Remote is simpler and easier with new ways to browse your library and see and edit upcoming songs with Up Next. A redesigned experience for the iPad shows all the songs in an album with the Expanded view and a more powerful search delivers results as you type.
Remote is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

However, nothing has changed on the ATV.


Well, mine has crashed four times in fifteen minutes. I'm going to bed!

I am curious to know because in the updated Remote 3.0 app for iOS there's a button to turn/off the music visualizer. I've been waiting for ATV to support this for ages. I would love to be able to have the iTunes music visualizer on my ATV. With the new software that has just been released for the ATV, can someone confirm if this will work?


That's a feature I would like to see as well, but I didn't see anything in the Apple release notes today indicating anything like that. The visualizer button in Remote.app is for use on a Mac.

Mine is also taking forever to update, although the bar seems to move one or two pixels occasionally :(

I'm one of the few folks still using the original Apple TV.

I just hope the IOS Remote update doesn't kill my functionality - or it will be back to the old point and click.
Maybe I should just get the new Apple TV, but the old one is still awesome in my book.




I have the original Apple TV and the newest Remote App works just fine, on both an iPad and an iPhone 4S.

Going on 40 minutes for "Preparing update..."

Hopefully it eventually works? Seems strange some people have no issue.
