    so the "Loop You in" event has long come and gone. And we have all by now updated to the latest tvOS version.

    So..... What do you think Apple would or should do in tvOS 10?

    Mine are:

    -Create an "Approved controller only" games section
    -A "for you" selection of TV and Movies
    -iCloud backup and setup

    Most of the features of the iPad.

    1. Local copy of content. I.E. Download Option.
    2. Full support for Photos like on the iPad. I.E Folders
    3. iCloud switching as easy as iTunes Switching. I.E. User Profiles (not on iPad yet).
    4. Global Watch List. From Netflix, Hulu, other third party Apps can update (like Channels TV/DVR App).
    And of course based on User Profiles.
    5. Game Center should be tied to User Profiles. I.E. iCloud switching.

    Probably much more. But that is my quick list.

    Dark UI Mode
    Improvement to Parental controls (so I can buy Deadpool and not have my kids even see it on the list)
    4K would be nice (but I don't think the HDMI is up to it, ATV 5 then? Add 3d while you're at it)
    Better photos app
    Fix all the nonsense in episode sequence/numbering in TV shows (i.e. where it wants to play special features 101 instead of episode 2, or where ep 2 is special features and ep3 is the second ep of the series)
    Easier to switch between accounts (too many clicks at this time)

    Picture-In-Picture, similar to how it is done in iOS. For example, a show keeps playing in the corner while you browse another app.

    I hate that as well, but Apple doesn't control that, the media companies decide that. It's also has to do with iTunes, not specifically tvOS.

    tvOS 10 should accompany a hardware refresh consisting primarily of a "Gaming Edition" Apple TV accompanied by an official Apple Game Controller. (With controller available for separate purchase, of course)

    Hard to imagine Apple TV apps breaking big without a proper game controller included with the hardware... Moving simple tap-and-swipe games to the big screen is not enough.

    When they icloud synch, they will more than likely kill off the atv3 as an insufficient resources platform or some garbage like that.

    Who knows. Apple has released software on android. Android watches work on IOS. And apple just licensed airplay to HTC for their new android phone.

    Yes but googlecast working on Apple TV would mean Google licensing it to Apple.

    Doesn't look like they have to license it. Anyone can use it, royalty free. As long as they agree to the terms.

    - Allow devs to make games that use an MFi controller only
    - PiP, easy switch between main/inset screen.
    - Easy way to switch between accounts for GC/Apple Music
    - This rumored Apple TV Streaming service
    - Some way to track new shows as they're on.
    - A way to browse/remotely install tvOS apps on ios.

    Atmos is just an extension on TrueHD. If it supports dolby TrueHD it supports atmos. Same with bluray players and cables. The only change one would have to make in their home theater is a new receiver. And of course ceiling speakers.

    Games download in their entirety rather than streaming levels.
    Streaming videos will throttle down quality for those of us with lower internet speeds.

    Don't get your hopes up for Dolby TrueHD - lossless audio requires waaaay too much bandwidth for streaming. Both Apple and Dolby are instead touting Dolby Digital Plus as the solution for higher quality audio for mobile/streaming solutions. To this degree, Dolby Digital Plus is actually supported natively in Core Audio as of iOS 9.3. (and already supported on tvOS and El Capitan.)

    We want it for local content. Not for streaming over the internet.
    Though the amount of bandwidth used isn't much when it's with a h.265 encoded video. About the same as todays h.264 encoded video with DD+
