Apple Seeds Fourth Beta of tvOS 10.0.1 to Developers

Apple today seeded the fourth beta of tvOS 10.0.1 to developers for testing purposes, 10 days after releasing the third tvOS 10.0.1 beta and more than a month after releasing the tvOS 10 update. tvOS 10.0.1 has been in testing since September 21.

Designed for the fourth-generation Apple TV, the tvOS 10.0.1 beta can be obtained by connecting the Apple TV to a computer with a USB-C to USB-A cable and downloading and installing the software from a registered developer account via iTunes or Apple Configurator. Once a beta profile has been installed on the device through iTunes, new beta updates will be available over the air.


No obvious outward-facing features were discovered in the first three tvOS 10.0.1 betas, so it's likely the update focuses on bug fixes and under-the-hood performance improvements to address issues discovered since the release of the first version of tvOS 10.

Single sign-on, a feature that will allow Apple TV users to sign in once with their cable credentials to access all live cable content included in a cable subscription, does not appear to be included in this beta and will be introduced in the future.

tvOS 10 brings improved search, expanded Siri capabilities, a new dark mode, a Continuity option for using the iPhone for text input, automatic download of universal apps, easy access to live TV, and more.

Anyone else having the issue where sometimes the remote response becomes very laggy? This is on the tvOS 10 update.

I was having issues with my remote, my swipes wouldn't always work, I felt like I had to press buttons twice for it to register. I unplugged the apple tv for a few seconds and plugged it back in. that seemed to reset and fix everything for me. worth a try if you haven't already.
