Apple may be busy improving iOS 10 and fixing bugs that cause unpleasantness, but it doesn’t neglect its Apple TV digital media player and its operating system. Soon will be released tvOS 10.1 and the fourth developer beta has just arrived for the fourth gen Apple TV.
So far, users were able to catch a glimpse of the new single sign-on feature, which allows them to authenticate with their cable provider so that all compatible paid video apps could be unlocked. The second addition is the new TV app called iBooks StoryTime.
Apple will release tvOS 10.1 in December, following the tvOS 10 update in September and the small tvOS 10.0.1 update that came last month packed with bug fixes. When the company introduced iBooks StoryTime app on iPhone and iPad with the second iOS 10.2 developer beta, the version of the same TV app wasn’t included in tvOS 10.1, but it made its appearance in tvOS 10.1 beta 3.
As for the single sign-on feature, users can find it in the Settings app under Accounts for service providers and in order to take advantage of it, paid video apps will need to be updated, because there will be more service provides that will be added before Apple will launch the feature in December.
When it comes to iOS 10.2, we remind you that a few days ago was seeded the fourth beta to developers and subsequently for public beta testers, being available as an over-the-air download. It came with new over 100 new emoji representing a clown face, a drooling face, face palm, new food (pancakes, croissant), fruits (avocado) etc., and there are also profession emoji such as lawyer, doctor, mechanic, firefighter, available in both male and female genders.
In addition, some of the old emoji have been redesigned and now they look more realistic.
The latest update for iPhone and iPad includes also a new wallpaper; new sorting options in Music app, as well as buttons for Repeat and Shuffle; an option that will preserve camera settings; new “Celebrate” and “Send with Love” screen effects and the official TV app that was unveiled on October 27.
