While the world is excited and familiar with the new releases of iOS 16.3 and iPadOS 16.3, Apple hasn’t stopped upgrading their software for the Apple TV in the background.
However, despite the ongoing upgrades, Apple hasn’t officially announced anything substantial regarding those releases, leading to the speculation that the tech brand did everything behind the scenes to further elevate the user experience of Apple TV users.
Recent reports suggest that Apple has released the new tvOS 16.3, offering Apple TV users an elevated user experience like never before. If you are considering upgrading to the latest version, here’s everything you need to know.
Factors to Consider before downloading tvOS 16.3
Ever since the availability of the beta 2 version, the users have been informed about certain factors that need to be sorted with the new upgrade, here’s everything you need to know.
There are currently two routes when it comes to updating the tvOS 16.3:
- Over the air
- Via USB-C
Also, the Apple devices that will be compatible with the tvOS 16.3 include:
- Apple TV HD
