Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming tvOS 12.1.1 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after releasing the third tvOS 12.1.1 beta and a month after releasing tvOS 12.1.

The new tvOS 12.1.1 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode. Subsequent betas can be downloaded over-the-air.

We're not yet sure what fixes and changes the tvOS 12.1.1 update might bring, but it's likely to focus on bugs that were not able to be addressed in the tvOS 12.1 update.

Apple provides little information on its tvOS software and tvOS updates have historically been minor in scale, so we may not know what's included in this update. Despite the lack of info Apple offers, we continue to share updates on tvOS beta releases so that developers and public beta testers are aware when new content is available to download.

Nothing new was discovered in the first three tvOS 12.1.1 betas, but we'll update this post if any new features are found in the fourth beta.

Update: Apple has also made a new beta of tvOS 12.1.1 available to public beta testers.

Hopefully they iron out the performance of the music app. Without constant reboots, it’s been running like a car with square tires recently.

Not to dismiss that you're having issues with the Music app. But I'm running the Beta and the Music App runs smooth as can be.

Ever since tvOS 12 I’ve been having this issue where newly purchased music will oftentimes show a blank music icon for the album art. Perhaps not coincidentally, the album art then usually shows up a week or so later whenever my iTunes bill gets processed.

Pay to play. ;)

But in all seriousness, that’s kinda weird.

****, mine does this using Apple Music exclusively (no iTunes purchased music).

Also, randomly when opening the Music app, it will say something along the lines of "there was an error signing into iCloud" (JUST in the Music app) and it will let me hit retry, and it will work, every time. This only started with tvOS 12 - it has worked perfectly on every version before, on both of my Apple TV's. Nothing on network has changed, devices show in iCloud status correctly, AirPlay, everything else works correctly, so it's not anything network internal causing this. Its like the Music app forgets it is connected to Apple Music until you tell it to retry connection.
