Apple Seeds Second Beta of tvOS 11.2 to Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.2 update to its public beta testing group, one week after seeding the first public beta and one day after seeding the second tvOS 11.2 update to developers. tvOS 11.2 comes a week after the release of tvOS 11.1, the first update to tvOS 11.

The tvOS 11.2 public beta can be obtained by going to the Settings app on the Apple TV and navigating to the Software Updates section under "System." "Get Public Beta Updates" will need to be toggled on, and once it is, the Apple TV will download the beta software.

According to Apple's release notes, the tvOS 11.2 update enables a new AVDisplayManager feature for developers, designed to allow the device to automatically switch video display modes to match the native frame rate and dynamic range of video content.

The update includes support for switching the Apple TV 4K display output to SDR for apps that are GPU-bound when running in HDR and it re-introduces the Unwatched category in Home Sharing for Movies, TV Shows, and Home Videos.

Apple says tvOS 11.2 also adds new features, bug fixes, and security improvements to the tvOS operating system.

... except the part where Apple promoted their device during it's launch as having the much sought after app "later this year". If Amazon fails to deliver, Apple will have to deal with the customers they defrauded into buying a device with Apple's assurances the technology would be available. Whether this is entirely Amazon's fault or not (which you don't know), there's definitely gonna be a "court" involved if Apple doesn't deliver by January 1 ...
ok buddy, go ahead and jump in line for a class action suit.

If the ONLY reason people purchased an AppleTV 4K is for the Amazon app, there are quite a few issues with them that probably need to be hashed out.

Is this proceeding faster than usual? It seems like they're pushing toward a deadline more quickly than usual. Could be wishful thinking that they're trying to roll it out before Thanksgiving, and maybe address an issue holding up the Amazon App.? Thanksgiving is prime binge watching time ...
