Apple Seeds First Beta of Upcoming tvOS 12.2 Update to Developers

Apple this morning seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 12.2 update to developers for testing purposes, two days after releasing the tvOS 12.1.2 update.

Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the new tvOS 12.2 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode.


tvOS updates have historically been minor in scale, focusing on under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements rather than major outward-facing changes. Apple provides little to no information on what's included in tvOS updates, so we may not discover anything new after installing the new beta.

While we don't know what's new in tvOS updates most of the time, we share when new software is available so developers are able to download it upon release.

Should we discover notable changes in the tvOS 12.2 beta, we'll update this post with details.

I'd love to see support for Dolby Atmos & DTS:X for local content... (read: Infuse, Plex, VLC, etc)

Apple TV is one of my fave Apple products. Having bought 118 films in the sale this week with over 80 of those 4K. I kinda like the updates don’t go crazy and break stuff.
