Very few people noticed that Apple released Apple TV software update 7.0.1 for the 3rd gen Apple TV yesterday alongside iOS 8.1. Although the company hasn’t updated the Apple TV support page yet, it seems that the update only addresses some security vulnerabilities.
Along with iOS 8, Apple has today released a software update 7.0 that works only with the 3rd gen. Apple TV. Apple TV 7 comes with a redesigned interface, Beats Music channel, Family Sharing option and access to iCloud Photos. The 2nd. gen. Apple TV got a firmware update as well (listed as 6.2.1), though it doesn’t include the new UI and Beats Music app.
