Apple has released the latest OS update for their Apple TV – tvOS 15. The update comes along with plenty of bug fixes and a couple of new features. Most of the newly added features were already unveiled during Apple’s June WWDC event.
Among all the new upgrades, most of the features mainly focus on improving the audio output of the Apple TV. For instant, if your Apple TV is connected with AirPods Pro or AirPods Max then you will be able to enjoy Spatial audio. It will give you a theatre-like experience and make you feel that you are surrounded by sounds.
Apple tvOS 15 Features
Apple tvOS updates are not as monumental as iOS or watchOS updates, but the latest tvOS 15 updates have introduced a couple of noticeable features. Let’s take a look at them in detail.
With the new update, you will get a pop-up on your Apple TV whenever an AirPods is nearby. This feature has been with macOS for a long time, now it has been finally introduced to Apple TV. You can pair the AirPods with the TV by pressing the remote button, or you can press the back button to dismiss the notification.
HomeKit was introduced to the Apple TV in the tvOS 14 updates, and the latest tvOS 15 upgrades the features offered by HomeKit. With the new OS update you will be able to view multiple cameras that have been placed in your locality, and all that at the same time on your Apple TV.
Now you can use the HomePod Mini as the default audio source and control Apple TV. This feature is very much similar to what we find in iOS 14 where we can use HomePod as our default audio output source. For example, if you ask Siri to play music, it will automatically turn on the Apple TV, and start playing music in it, and output will be coming from HomePod.
Some other minor upgrades include Audio Sharing. This feature will allow connecting two AirPods with the Apple TV simultaneously. And enjoy music and TV shows on both, without facing any connectivity issue.
The SharePlay FaceTime feature will be introduced later this year, and it will be added to tvOS 15 as well. Using this feature, you can watch your favorite movies and series along with your friends by sharing it with them.
