    Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.4.1 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after seeding the first tvOS 11.4.1 beta and two weeks after releasing tvOS 11.4, an update that introduced support for AirPlay 2.

    Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the new tvOS 11.4.1 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode.

    No new features or changes were discovered in the first tvOS 11.4.1 beta, suggesting it focus on fixes for bugs that have been discovered since the release of tvOS 11.4.

    Apple's tvOS updates have historically been minor in scale, and Apple does not often provide us with detailed notes outlining what's new. We'll update this post should anything be found in the second beta.

    Apple's work on tvOS 11 is winding down as the company is now focusing on tvOS 12, which was unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference last week.

    I am not sure if it is tvOS 11.4, but since the update, some apps do not retain their login information. The ones I have noticed was Direct TV Now and AMC. I have to re-login/authenticate every day.

    This could also be Applied to major tvOS updates, as tvOS has barely changed since its launch. Normally, I wouldn't be bothered by this, but tvOS is so buggy when compared to my other Apple devices.

    Been trying to find the ISS screensaver and way to display the location, none of it works like what they mention in WWDC.

    Can someone help? When I try to Airplay something from my iPhone to Apple TV with Homepod linked for sound, I only get the video. No Audio. Why isn't the Apple TV pushing the sound to Homepod. Can it only Airplay with one device?

    Screensavers are downloaded in the background. I doubt they will make the new ones available until the public launch.
