Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 14.2 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming just a day after the release of the tvOS 14 update.


Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the tvOS 14.2 developer beta can be downloaded onto the ‌‌‌‌‌Apple TV‌‌‌‌‌ via a profile that’s installed using Xcode.

tvOS updates other than new releases are typically minor in scale, focusing on under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements rather than major outward-facing changes. There’s no word yet on what’s included in tvOS 14.2 update, but we’ll update this article should anything new be found.

Still haven’t fixed the inability to load large libraries of purchases, punishing Apple’s most valuable customers.

It’s only been years. I guess Apple has bigger priorities than its best customers.

My poor cellular connection has been slow since iOS 14. Probably from all the forced updates for apps. Can't wait for things to return to normal.

Has anyone been able to get instant switching for the AirPods Pro to work on the current tvOS? Or am I the only one with a problem?

Is there a discussion going on in any forum about any updates to the YouTube app on appletv?

Same. Audio Settings says ATMOS is available and there's an Atmos label on Netflix, but sound outputs at 7.1 LPCM
Thanks for confirming. Hope they fix it in the next update. Quite a big deal for me. The price you pay for Beta.

Yes what is going on with this? Where is it?
Got it on mine..... You have to hold down the screen button on an original Apple TV remote for it to show up. It's pretty basic though, and no multi-home functionality (hopefully that's a "yet").

I also had to update to 14 manually, despite it being a wired internet connection. It had updated a few days ago, which I thought was to 14 but must have been the previous point release.
