Apple Seeds First Beta of tvOS 14.4 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 14.4 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new software coming two days after the launch of the tvOS 14.3 update that brought a new Fitness app and support for Apple Fitness+.

tvOS 14
Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the tvOS 14.4 developer beta can be downloaded onto the ‌‌‌‌‌‌‌Apple TV‌‌‌‌‌‌‌ via a profile that's installed using Xcode.

Apple's tvOS updates are often minor in scale, focusing on under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements rather than major outward-facing changes. There's no word yet on what's included in tvOS 14.4 update, but we'll update this article should anything new be found.

Though 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.

The main tvOS 14 update released in September brought expanded Picture in Picture support, new HomeKit integration with HomeKit Secure Video cameras, support for multiple Apple Arcade profiles, and more, with details available in our tvOS 14 roundup.

Will Apple every fix the library tab in the AppleTV app?

Will Apple ever care about customers who purchase content?

Library tab has been busted for 2 years. Pathetic.

Well aware of Apple's feedback process. I used general terms in my post, but I am personally only concerned about the new XBox controller. And in that case, we already have the official response:

"Microsoft and Apple are working together to bring compatibility for the Xbox Series X controller to customers in a future update."
