Apple Adds 21 New Aerial Screen Savers to Apple TV

One of the best features on the fourth-generation Apple TV is its high-quality aerial screen savers that play on the screen after a short period of inactivity. The Aerial screen saver option on the Apple TV features an aerial view of different locations around the world, which Apple has added to over time to keep content fresh.

The Aerial screen saver picks a random video option from a data source maintained by Apple, and that data source was recently updated with 21 new screen savers. iDownloadBlog has parsed the data and shared direct links to each of the new screen savers that can be watched on iOS devices and Macs.

Screen savers are time-based and show off various cities and locations in slow motion, with the lighting changing based on the time of day. New screen savers of video captured in China, Dubai, Greenland, Hong Kong, Liwa, and Los Angeles have been added.

China:
- Day 4
- Day 5
- Day 6

Dubai:
- Day 1
- Day 2
- Day 3
- Day 4
- Night 1
- Night 2

Greenland:
- Day 1
- Day 2
- Night 1

Hong Kong:
- Day 1
- Day 2
- Day 3
- Night 1

Liwa (United Arab Emirates):
- Day 1

Los Angeles (United States):
- Day 1
- Day 2
- Day 3
- Night 1

These screen savers aren't likely to be immediately available to all users, as the Apple TV downloads new aerial content on a regular basis depending on your Apple TV settings. New screen savers can be set to download on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis in the Settings app on the Apple TV.

That's pretty damning...

I wish you could select which ones to use. Sometimes there are different ones that I like to use based on what's going on (like hosting a party).

Ha, I was thinking the exact same thing. Just how bad does Macrumors think the Apple TV is that the screen savers are one of its best features. I actually rather like my Apple TV (despite it's lack of 4K) I wouldn't rate the screensavers that highly, nice as they are :D

I've recently seen the Times Square aerial (but in daytime), used on a TV show. Also, these are digitally rendered right? I've never seen cars or people move in such a structured way, even in slow motion.
@timmyh is quick on the draw!


These are all 100% live action slow motion video - no CG at all! :)


I'm sure most of you know, but you can get these on your Mac with the Aerial Screensaver ('https://github.com/JohnCoates/Aerial').
