Apple Seeds First Beta of tvOS 13.3 Update to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 13.3 update to developers, one week after releasing the tvOS 13.2 update.

Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the new tvOS 13.3developer 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 beta updates, so we may not discover anything new after installing the software.

In tvOS 13.2, for example, Apple's only available information was that it included general performance and stability updates.

While we don't often know what's new in tvOS during the beta testing process, we let MacRumors readers know when new updates are available so those who are developers can download it upon release.

If we find anything new in the tvOS 13.3 beta, we'll update this article.

Is this real? Apple brought back the top shelf finally?! This is music to my eyes!!


Yes so far with just a quick use it appears like it was, but you do have to go into settings/apps/tv and change the added setting Top Shelf (under label Home Screen) from “what to watch” to “Up Next”.
When 13.3 install restarted I put app back at top, and got aggravated it still came up old way until finding the new setting.

Hopefully they’ve fixed some of the major issues with tvOS 13 in this release. Mine keeps randomly disconnecting from the WiFi when the rest of my devices have zero issues. Works fine over Ethernet, but it’s a PITA to hook up with the way my apartment is set up.

Hopefully, the ability to control the Apple TV with Siri on the Watch will be added soon! :rolleyes:
