Apple releases tvOS 12 public beta

26 Jun 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

If you want to try the next major version of tvOS on your Apple TV, you can now download the pubic beta. Dolby Atmos is the most significant new feature.

tvOS 12 public beta

The next version of the operating system for Apple TV will be released this fall. Developers have had access since early June and with the public beta you can also get onboard.

Especially users with Dolby Atmos have reason to update. Purchased iTunes movies will be upgraded free of charge to Dolby Atmos if the movie studio has made an Atmos soundtrack available. As
reported by FlatpanelsHD, users have had luck with Blade Runner 2049. Vudu also offers titles in Atmos on Apple TV 4K. Netflix will join the party later.


Apple TV – tvOS 12


You can get an overview of the other new features in tvOS 12 here. Not all of them are active at this point in time.

If you want to try the beta of tvOS 12, Apple has posted a guide here. It is very simple to enroll and install the beta as it no longer requires you to connect the Apple TV box to a PC or Mac first.

Be aware that this is beta software so it may contain bugs. The finished version of tvOS 12 will be released this fall.
