It’s only been a few days since we posted about a new firmware bringing Apple TV to version 6.0 and an array of new features, but the update has since been pulled following a few issues including connectivity problems and even reports of bricking.
On the back of Apple’s iOS 7 release this Wednesday, Apple TV 6.0 has been released, taking it out of beta finally, having been in that status since June. With it brings a number of new features from iTunes Radio, and as we previously reported AirPlay from iCloud which allows other users’ DRM’d content to be streamed from their iCloud to your Apple TV. Here’s the full rundown of what Apple included in the 6.0 update:
There were many rumours speculating that Apple may in fact showcase their new Apple TV, or at least an update, at the event yesterday in Cupertino. But, as many feared, the event revolved solely around the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. However, all hope is not lost if recent sources’ rumours are believed.
Apple has just released a big update to the second and third generation Apple TV. Apple TV software version 5.3 adds HBO GO and WatchESPN, which are now available directly on our little black boxes. In addition, three new content providers are also available today on Apple TV including Sky News, Crunchyroll and Qello offering live news, sports and current TV programming.
