Apple Seeds First Beta of tvOS 13.2 Update to Developers [Update: Public Beta Available]

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 13.2 update to developers for testing purposes, a little over one week after releasing the tvOS 13 update.

Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the new tvOS 13.2 developer beta can be downloaded onto the ‌Apple TV‌ via a profile that's installed using Xcode.


tvOS updates (aside from major releases) 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.

Though we don't often know what's new in tvOS updates, we let MacRumors readers know when new software is available so developers are able to download it upon release.

If we find anything new in the tvOS 13.2 beta, we'll update this article.

tvOS 13, released earlier in September, introduced multi-user support, a new Control Center, Apple Arcade and controller support, new screensavers and more.

Hope they fix the many bugs. And get rid of all the ads. This app is below Apple standards.

For me too only the right top button wakes the AppleTV (maybe try that out)


Yeah, it seams that they made a change so only the Menu button will turn on the AppleTV now where any button used to do that.

I guess they're skipping 13.1.

tvOS 13 is slow on my 4th gen. Hope they fix this. 12 was way faster.

A Apple TV 4K with A12X or A13X chip would be a PS4 Xbox killer

Ads?


Yeah, ads. You know, a video that autoplays that you didn't ask for of content you don't already own that they want you to watch/buy... in other words, an ad.

If you don't think those are ads, I have a bridge over here you might be interested in buying... cheap!

they changed the behavior. Now you can turn on the Apple tv with the button with the tv on it. Some people accidentally pressed the touchpad, that’s why they changed it.

My siri controller stopped being able to turn on my 4K ATV since I updated to tvOS 13, but it works fine once the ATV is on... go figure. I wonder if I’m the only one. It’s quite annoying.

You can turn that off in the Settings.

Can someone go into audio settings and see if anything has changed (hoping for bitstream output)?


I see Audio Mode > 16 bit. Don’t know if that’s new and if it’s what you’re looking for.
