Apple TV tvOS 9.2

Just over a week since the last tvOS 9.2 beta, Apple has released tvOS 9.2 beta 6 for developers with the fourth-gen Apple TV. 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.

Let us know in the comments, via email at tips at 9to5mac dot com, or on Twitter @9to5Mac if you spot any changes in the new beta, and we’ll update with changes we find as well.

Among other changes mentioned above, tvOS 9.2 also changes how the Siri Remote interacts with scrubbing through video, which solves a major user-experience issue.

The latest software update for Apple TV is expected to debut soon around Apple’s now official March 21st event.
