    Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.4 update to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the fourth beta and more than a month after releasing the tvOS 11.3 update.

    Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the new tvOS 11.4 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode.

    tvOS 11.4, paired with iOS 11.4, reintroduces AirPlay 2 features that were present in early tvOS and iOS 11.3 betas but were removed ahead of release. With AirPlay 2, the same audio content can be played on multiple devices (like the Apple TV) throughout your home, and audio playback can be controlled via the iPhone or through Siri commands. After installing iOS 11.4 and tvOS 11.4, the Apple TV is also once again be listed in the Home app.

    There were no other new features discovered in the first four tvOS 11.4 updates, and it's likely it focuses on bug fixes and other small improvements. Apple's tvOS updates have historically been minor in scale, and we may not find any other new additions.

    We'll update this post should new features be introduced in the fifth beta of tvOS 11.4.

    Update: Apple has also made the fifth beta of tvOS 11.4 available to its public beta testing group.

    Here's hoping to see quick (list) scrolling fixed on the 4K. Works fine on the 4 but "chokes" on the 4K for me. In other words, when scrolling down a long list of movies or songs, the quick scroll feature works just fine on the older "4" but begins & stalls, begins & stalls on the 4K. Weird how the old will work better than the new in a simple feature like this one.

    The last update caused audio/video sync issues almost every time I scrub or pause a video on my ATV 4. Sometimes just going back to the menu causes audio sync issues. I hope this gets fixed. Never had the problem before.

    With no Dolby Atmos, how can the Apple TV be taken seriously. How hard can it be!

    Perhaps four times the number of pixels needing to be rendered has something to with it?

    Even when hooked to a 1080p screen, it gets clogged up.
