The third-generation ‌Apple TV‌ 4K was released in early November, and this update is only available for the new models. It is likely that this bug fix addresses the issue that could cause 128GB ‌Apple TV‌ 4K owners to see a warning that they had run out of storage when using just 64GB.

The tvOS 16.1.1 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 16.1.1 automatically.

Rumors nobody cares about: 128GB Apple TV option

Apple: WE MUST BE SO SECRETIVE that hardware can't even talk to software to give them a heads up that we're doing a 128GB version and they need to make sure they account for that and test it fully
Even though that sounds like a joke, Apple is well known to compartmentalize its projects to avoid leaks. It still could be just a opps we forgot to verify the 16.1 public build supports that. :D

I know that’s how they operate, I was being fully serious, lol. My post was a “this is probably how it went down” assessment based on what I know about how the company works internally. Only Apple would even care to lock down a leak of something as mundane as a 128GB Apple TV to the point where you can’t even use the 128GB fully because they didn’t test it.
