Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 13.4 update to developers, one week after releasing the tvOS 13.3.1 update.

Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the new tvOS 13.4 developer beta can be downloaded onto the ???Apple TV??? via a profile that's installed using Xcode.


tvOS updates are usually minor in scale, focusing on under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements rather than major outward-facing changes. The tvOS 13.4 update introduces some minor design changes to streamline the look of the TV app interface, plus it introduces Family Sharing integration so users can access iTunes content purchased by family members without having to leave the app.

While we don't often know what's new in tvOS during the beta testing process, we let MacRumors readers know when new updates are available so those who are developers can download it upon release.

I haven't upgraded my 4k ATV to the latest OS yet because of the issue people are having where they can't stream their Home Shared photos to the ATV. A feature we use a lot in our house.

Technically, that's a reversion and so should be on Apple's higher priority "fix" list... unless it's intentional and a portend of the end of Home Sharing.

Can anyone verify if that has/hasn't been fixed yet in this or any previous build?

Airplay photos from an iOS device? Yes it is capable

I think you mean the bug is a regression. ;)
