Apple TV tvOS 9.2

tvOS 9.2 beta 4 for the fourth-generation Apple TV is now available as an over-the-air software update for registered developers testing the pre-release version. Apple TV gains several new abilities with the upcoming release including iOS-style app folders, a redesigned app switcher user interface, voice dictation input for search and username/password entry, complete iCloud Photo Library support, and much more. We’ll check out the latest beta version of the upcoming release and highlight any changes below.

Other features include the ability to use Bluetooth keyboards with the Apple TV for text input and navigation, which was a feature introduced on older Apple TVs but absent from the new model when it shipped. Siri gains the ability to search the App Store for specific apps, and the Apple TV regains the conference room mode feature as well.
