On June 7, the keynote opening of the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, also known as WWDC, which the company could take advantage of to present all the news that will come to Apple TV.
In particular, Apple is expected to focus on software news. Ultimately, this is an event for developers and the most common is that it talks about upcoming versions of their operating systems.
While we wouldn’t expect the company to spend a lot of time on tvOS 15 (as the next release would call it), in favor of iOS 15 and macOS 12, there may be some cool new features to be announced after launch. of the new Apple. 4K TV.
Launch: When will tvOS 15 be released?
As we said, Apple would take advantage of the next edition of its developer event to announce tvOS 15. It should be remembered that WWDC 2021 will be held from June 7 to 11. The announcement would take place on the first day.
Now that day would only be chosen to announce his upcoming arrival, as it wouldn’t become available until a few months later. If we look at when it has been in recent years, the chosen month would be next september
Also, if this happens as on previous occasions, developers might start enjoying the features a bit earlier with the arrival of the first beta and as long as they are enrolled in Apple’s beta software program.
Compatibility: Which Apple TV will be compatible with tvOS 15?
The list of Apple TVs compatible with tvOS 15 will not be very long. Last year tvOS 14 only had two receiver models, the last two, and in 2021 it is expected that these will only be joined by the Apple TV 4K presented in April.
The list would be configured as follows:
- Apple TV HD (4th generation)
- Apple TV 4K (1st generation, 2017)
- Apple TV 4K (2nd generation, 2021)
Features: What’s new in tvOS 15?
It’s always an adventure to try to guess what news the next versions of Apple’s operating systems will bring, although more so when it comes to tvOS. Even so, there are rumors circulating about some news that we would see this year.
Reformada from the App Store
In 2020, we expected Apple to decide to do something it should have done a long time ago: revamp and redesign the Apple TV App Store. It wasn’t like that, but he could have decided to wait until this year to do it.
For now, Apple’s voice assistant seems a bit limited on Apple TV and is mostly used for finding shows and movies, as well as controlling your smart home. The Siri experience could be improved.
Apple Fitness +
One of the new features of tvOS 15 could come in the form of improvements to the Fitness + app. Some users are complaining about bugs and bugs, and Apple could also bet on including multi-user support and a wider variety of stats.
Now, what we would most like to see is the arrival of the service outside of Anglo-Saxon countries. For the moment, we can not take advantage of it from Europe or Latin America, and Apple could already have decided to take the plunge.
New apps and widgets
Oddly, Apple TV doesn’t come with a built-in web browser. It looks like the time has come for Apple to finally decide to bring Safari optimized and designed for its TV receiver, so its users don’t have to use external apps.
On the other hand, the company could decide to bring the widgets how they managed iOS on your Apple TV. After all, a lot of people use this device to check the weather or news, which would make it a bit easier for them.
Finally, Apple could introduce a new profile for its Apple TV designed for the little ones. In this way, children could also use it to watch their favorite drawings and movies without the parents worrying about seeing content that is not suitable for their age.
