Apple today released tvOS 11.1, the first major update for the tvOS 11 operating system designed for fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models. tvOS 11.1 comes more than a month after the release of the original tvOS 11 update.

tvOS 11.1 can be downloaded over the air through the Settings app on the Apple TV by going to System --> Software Update. Apple TV owners who have automatic software updates turned on will be upgraded to tvOS 11.1 automatically.

tvOS 11.1 focuses primarily on bug fixes and performance improvements rather than outward-facing design changes, and no significant features were discovered over the course of the beta testing period.

The update does introduce a fix for a major vulnerability in the WPA2 Wi-Fi standard that protects many modern Wi-Fi networks. Many Apple devices had the potential to be impacted by the vulnerability, but it has been addressed in tvOS 11.1, iOS 11.1, watchOS 4.1, and macOS High Sierra 10.13.1.

tvOS 11 introduced features like full support for AirPods, automatic switching between light and dark mode based on local time, Home screen syncing options designed to keep multiple Apple TVs in a single household in sync, and new background modes and notification support.

Right, because watching cat videos in 4K HDR 10 @ 60Hz needs to be Apple's highest priority. . . :rolleyes:
but the cat hair is so sharp and the image depth is like glassless 3D. Don't even get me started on the HDR pop around the cat's eyes!
[doublepost=1509490176][/doublepost]Still no resolution/frame switching. Apple hasn't even acknowledge that this "feature" is a PROBLEM.

Yes that would have made a lot of sense.

It's not an Apple function Amazon has to release it. Ask them why they haven't yet.Yes, but Apple is the one who promised it would be out by the end of the year as a featured selling point during their introductory address. Amazon may be falling down on the job, but Apple will have to answer for unfulfilled promises to customers. They still have 61 days, so who knows, this may all be moot in a few short days or weeks, even at the loss of some goodwill.

Amazon Prime isn't going to be built into tvOS, it's going to be just another app, like every other channel/streaming-service. It'll arrive when Amazon chooses to ship it.
