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.

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.
