Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming tvOS 13.2 update to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the first tvOS 13.2 beta and two weeks 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 during the beta testing process.

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

We didn't find anything new in the first tvOS 13.2 beta, but will update this post should we find new features in the second tvOS 13.2 beta.

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

Apple is not getting enough flack for removing Up Next from the TV app's Top Shelf, and replacing it with ads.

Please fix the mess that is the Apple TV app. So buggy. Libraries don’t load, etc.

The problem with these shared code base apps is Apple TV stinks on multiple devices. I won’t upgrade to Catalina just because I don’t want to lose media functionality. (That, and it’s a buggy train wreck)

I hope it is released soon. Airplay is a hot mess on tvOS 13. Very slow to play things. Slows down scrolling around the menus too. My Apple TV has never ran worse.

They took the best feature and buried it. Makes 0 sense.

It's better to be concise but the window expands quite a bit
I quickly reached the limit. And they were three very short points. But I squeezed them in.

Yeah, that’s what it did to me too. Just decided to update itself anyway despite auto updates being turned off. Made me so mad. I wouldn’t mind as much if it was a perfectly working update, but it’s not. Yesterday I was trying to airplay music to it, and it repeatedly turned off the Apple TV as if I wasn’t using it. So annoying. Sure hoping the next version fixes these problems.
I reported to Apple in a feedback, I suggest to do it yourself too ('https://www.apple.com/feedback/appletv.html'), more feedbacks more complaints to get something fixed ?
