tvOS 10.1 Beta 2 Now Rolling Out

Following the releases of iOS 10.2 beta 2 and watchOS 3.1.1 beta 2, Apple today seeded Apple TV developers with the second build of tvOS 10.1 for testing purposes. This comes a week after the first build of the future upgrade for Apple’s streaming set-top-box was released.

In tvOS 10.1, Apple finally brings to life Single Sign-On which allows users to sign into their cable provider once and automatically log into all apps that require the credentials. This makes the process of setting up various apps like CBS and NBC much simpler. In addition, we’re also expecting the recently announced TV app to make its was to the public via this software, however the app doesn’t appear to be currently live in this beta. On the other hand, iOS 10.2 beta testers do have access to the app.

Finally, additional bug fixes and security improvements are also present in tvOS 10.1 beta 2. If we haven’t mentioned something here you think is worth noting, please email us at

To install the second beta seed of tvOS 10.1, head over to Settings > System > Software Updates > Update Software on your registered Apple TV fourth generation and hit the download button.
