Apple today released a new update for tvOS 11, the operating system designed to run on the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TVs. tvOS 11.2.6 comes one month after the release of the tvOS 11.2.5 update, which focused on bug fixes and other under-the-hood improvements.

tvOS 11.2.6 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 the tvOS 11.2.6 automatically.

As a minor 11.x.x update tvOS 11.2.6 focuses on performance improvements and bug fixes to address issues that were discovered following the release of tvOS 11.2.5. It is being released alongside bug fix updates for iOS, macOS, and watchOS to address a problem that caused devices to crash due to an inability to render a specific character in the Indian language Telugu.

tvOS 11.2.6 will be followed by tvOS 11.3, an update that is currently being beta tested and is slated for release this spring.

I have the ATV2 and am still completely happy with it. I bought the ATV4 for my mother and found it confusing, SIRI sucked, and the remote was a train wreck. Luckily the old remote still works with ATV4. That being said, I see zero reason to replace my ATV2.

I hope it fixes the bug where it can’t consistently remember if I have purchased a movie or not. (I have purchased over 1,000 movies from Apple, and the experience, particularly on iOS Purchased tab is pathetic. On Apple TV, it will ofen forget almost all the movies I have purchased and only list 8 random purchases. A reboot usually fixes it.)

The bugs in Apple TV are making me think about leaving the Apple movie/tv content ecosystem. The bugs in iTunes already drove me away to Spotify, and the corruption of libraries during the Apple music launch ensured I won’t trust Apple with my music and will never use that service or buy a HomePod.

All I’ve got left with Apple and content is movies. Hope they fix the bugs soon. Otherwise, waiting until something comes to Netflix or HBO isn’t that big of a deal.

Same here... massively invested into Apple recently IPad Pro , MacBook Pro 15, iPhone X, HomePod... and Apple TV4k which leave me with inconsistent bugs. Mostly one in IMovie theater which cannot connect to see my movie where it works flawlessly on my Mac, iPad,iPhone.
