Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.1 update to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the third tvOS 11.1 update and more than a month after releasing tvOS 11 to the public.

Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the tvOS 11.1 beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode on the Mac.

The tvOS 11.1 update appears to focus on bug fixes and performance improvements rather than outward-facing design changes, and no new features were found in the first three betas. Should anything notable surface in the fourth tvOS 11.1 beta, we'll update this post.

While there are no major outward-facing changes, Apple says the update addresses a serious vulnerability in the WPA2 Wi-Fi standard that protects many modern Wi-Fi networks.

tvOS 11 introduces features like full support for AirPods, automatic switching between light and dark mode based on local time, Home screen syncing options designed to keep multiple Apple TVs in a single household in sync, and new background modes and notification support.

Update: Apple has also made a new public beta of tvOS 11.1 available for public beta testers.

Do we have any idea when the live sports and news additions are coming?

No fix for output mode switching. If they would only stop converting SDR to HDR and REC709 to REC2020, they'd solve a world of problems for most TV's.

At this point I'm assuming Apple thinks this is a "feature" that doesn't need fixing.
