Apple Seeds Second Beta of tvOS 11.2.5 to Developers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.2.5 update to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the first beta and one week after the release of tvOS 11.2.1, an update that introduced a fix for a HomeKit vulnerability.

Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the tvOS 11.2.5 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode.

We don't yet know what features or changes might be included in the 11.2.5 update, but it likely focuses primarily on bug fixes and performance improvements rather than major outward-facing changes.

There were no outward-facing changes discovered in the first developer beta, but we'll update this post should new features be found in the second beta.

Hopefully it fixes these cut outs I’m having. Keeps cutting in and out when I go between apps or screens for that matter.
