tvOS 10.1 Beta 3 Now Available for Developers’ Testing

Following today’s releases of iOS 10.2 beta 3 and macOS 10.12.2 beta 3, Apple has begun rolling out tvOS 10.1 beta 3 to developers for testing and debugging before an initial release to the public in the coming weeks. This comes a week after the second build of the future OS upgrade for the Apple TV became available.

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 3. If we haven’t mentioned something here you think is worth noting, please email us at
To install the third 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.
