Try tvOS 11 beta today
Apple’s beta releases of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS have in the past been reserved for software developers. However, with the “public beta” program Apple started making the beta releases available to everyone.
This is the first time that tvOS has been included in the public beta. tvOS 11 beta 2 is available for download now.
The new features in tvOS 11 were not highlighted on stage at the annual WWDC conference but Tim Cook promised to talk ”a lot more about tvOS later this year”. New features include Airplay 2, HEVC decoding, auto-pairing of Airpods, auto-switching between dark/light themes, Home Screen Sync between multiple Apple TVs, new screensavers, notifications, Metal 2 game engine, and more.
