Apple today released tvOS 13.2, the first major update to the tvOS 13 operating system that runs on the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models. tvOS 13.2 comes more than a month after the launch of tvOS 13.

‌tvOS 13.2‌, which is a free update, 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 ‌tvOS 13‌.2 automatically.

We didn't find any new features in tvOS 13.2 during the beta testing period, making it unclear what's included in the update, but it likely focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements.

Details on the update will be provided through Apple's tvOS support document, but haven't been added just yet.

tvOS 13 was a major update introducing multi-user support, a Control Center, ocean-themed screensavers, and more. Details on tvOS 13 can be found in our tvOS 13 roundup.

Please fix the buggy disaster that is the Apple TV app.

Large libraries don’t load. Riddled with ads for streaming services. Etc...

It's really strange that after EVERY tvOS update I have to reboot my AppleTV manually to fix a lag where the menu button would behave very unresponsively (it takes about a second to go back). After the reboot the lag is gone.

Also strange that after tvOS 13.2 the AppleTV just logged me in with the 2nd profile instead of my own.

Really hope tvOS 13.2 improves the performance because since tvOS 13 I notice some stuttering here and there whereas tvOS 12 was very smooth.

I also have issues with the Apple TV in sleep mode. My TV controls it via IR and even though it sends a wake up command it just ignores it. I have to press back two times to get it to wake up, which takes ten seconds more or so every time.

There aren't huge changes in tvOS but I will forever applaud Apple for making it so that only the menu button and not grazing the touchpad of the remote turns it on now. Most of the time I'd pick up the remote to move it and turn on the Apple TV. Not anymore.

I hope this fixes the sleep issue that occurs when I stream audio-only material from my iPhone to the ATV4K.

Another bug I have very frequently since tvOS 13 is that I don’t get the sound you’re supposed to get when moving through menus or apps on the home screen a lot of the time.
