    Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.3 update to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the fourth beta and three weeks after releasing the tvOS 11.2.6 update.

    Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the tvOS 11.3 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode and Apple Configurator.

    Early tvOS 11.3 updates introduced support for AirPlay 2, allowing the Apple TV to be added to the Home app as part of a HomeKit setup and enabling multiple Apple TVs in separate rooms to play the same song, but that functionality was removed in tvOS 11.3 beta 3.

    It is not yet clear if Apple plans to re-add AirPlay 2 features ahead of the release of tvOS 11.3, but it's a possibility because there are still several betas to go.

    Other new features in tvOS 11.3 include enhancements to Match Content support, automatic frame rate switching on the fourth-generation Apple TV (a feature that was added to Apple TV 4K in a past tvOS update), and automatic mode switching for AirPlay video sessions.

    Update: Apple has also made a new beta of tvOS 11.3 available to public beta testers.

    I really hope they make auto resolution switching an option. Mode switching for AirPlay seems to suggest maybe it will, assuming that applies to the way video was shot, vs. screen mirroring, and other aspects of AirPlay for which resolution might matter?

    I have an AppleTV 4 and an AppleTV 4K, and neither is seeing the update.
    I did notice that "Get Beta Updates" had turned off on both of them, so I re-enabled that.
    Maybe it takes a short while to get back on it. Will check in a while.

    Has anyone had any luck with the 5th Public Beta in the U.S. yet? As of 10 AM (CST), I could still not download it. Does anyone have the build number for this TVOS?

    Nothing in UK either and awaiting to confirm a reported bug is fixed, can’t comment more due to NDA.
