Devices on Apple TV 5.3 are now "up to date" (thanks, @iPadMatt!)

Devices on Apple TV 5.3 are now “up to date” (thanks, @iPadMatt!)

After Apple TV 6.0 was released on Friday with iTunes Radio and other enhancements, there were many reports of botched updates that required the user to restore their Apple TV. In some particular instances, Apple TVs have also been permanently bricked or they lost the content on the device during the update. Other devices could not download any internet content even when an internet connection was connected.

Last night, Apple took down the on-device update, and now devices on Apple TV 5.3 are seeing no update available. Of note, the 6.0 firmware is still available as a download on Apple’s website. The update is still available for some Apple TV users, although it seems sporadic and may be a result of background downloading.

We’ll update this post as more details arise.

(Thanks, Matt, Nick, and JX)
