With all the new apps/channels released for Apple TV recently, the interface can become quite cluttered. Luckily, as of the Apple TV 5.1 software update, you can adjust the display of icons and arrangement on the Apple TV’s main menu to suit your preference and hide those icons you don’t use.
A new WiFi standard called 802.11ac, which enables significantly faster transfer speeds than 802.11n, has recently began to find it’s way into consumer devices, including the new AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule base Station. Now it seems the Apple TV is about to get the same treatment, with speculation that a new Apple TV will be released soon with 802.11ac support.
Apple is on a role with their updates and allowing third parties to hook into their Apple TV device: back in June the company added HBO GO, WatchESPN and Sky News apps, last month Vevo TV, Disney Channels, Smithsonian and Weather Channel showed up on our little black devices, next it was Amazon with their update to watch Amazon Video on the Apple TV, and then the big 6.0 firmware update offering iTunes Radio, iTunes Music Store and AirPlay from iCloud. Yesterday Apple added yet more content with Major League Soccer and Disney Junior channels appearing now on Apple TV home screen.
