Apple Seeds Fourth Beta of tvOS 11.2.5 to Developers [Updated: Public Beta Available]

Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.2.5 update to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the third beta and almost a month 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 new 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 tvOS 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 three developer betas, but we'll update this post should new features be found in the fourth beta.

Update: Apple has also seeded a new public beta of tvOS 11.2.5 to public beta testers.

We’re never going to get ATMOS audio support for iTunes movies. I know it. I can feeeel it. I’ll be stuck with discs for priority films yet.

Also noticed you can’t buy TV shows in 4K. Yet when they arrive on Netflix they’re in 4K. ????

Does it fix the inability to browse a connected USB drive's files through the USB port on the back of the 4th gen AppleTV? That was a pretty boneheaded oversight.
That has never been and never will be a feature. Get a router with a USB port if you must.

Has that ever been a feature of a recent AppleTV?
