In the same way my house has more than one TV, it has more than one computer – many more, in fact. There’s the iMac we share, a few laptops (mine and my wife’s) and the home media server. For some reason, however, Apple has enforced a 1-to-1 relationship between the Apple TV and my computers. Being able to connect the Apple TV to only one computer at a time is a real pain – each time I switch between computers is time consuming and frustrating.
Apple today released tvOS beta 2, a second pre-release version of the new operating system for Apple TV 4. The build number is 13T5365h.
The Apple TV is a pretty awesome little device. The supremely portable hardware enables us to stream content from our computer, or from several pre-installed channels like Netflix, directly to our TV/stereo/home theater. For about the price of a month’s worth of Starbucks lattes, you can easily watch all your favorite content on the big screen.
9to5Mac’s Dom Esposito got his hands on the brand new Apple TV to explore the updated hardware and dig into its new operating system – tvOS. One of the most interesting findings is support for Bluetooth headphones and Bluetooth speakers, a feature that hasn’t been officialy announced by Apple.
AirServer, one of the most advanced AirPlay receivers for Mac and PC, has been updated with YouTube Live Streaming feature, retina quality mirroring, Ultra HD video recording and full compatibility with iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan.
Created by Eden Games, a successfull gaming studio that specializes in high-profile AAA productions in the racing game genre, GT Spirit may be one of the most interesting games available on the new Apple TV when it launches in late October.
GT Spirit is a realistic driving experience, with fully simulated engines, powertrains, suspensions and aerodynamics. Players compete live with their online friends and foes through unlimited races, championships and daily events.
