When tvOS 10 is ready this fall, Apple TV 4 will gain a dark mode, new Siri features like YouTube video search and looking up movies and TV shows by topics, an updated Photos app with Memories, support for HomeKit and controlling smart home accessories, single sign-on for authenticating cable channels, and more. tvOS 10 is currently in development with betas available for registered developers.

tvOS 9.2.2 is the latest currently available version of the Apple TV 4 software. Apple TV will update its software automatically by default, or you can give it a heads up if you don’t want to wait. Just go to the Settings channel, then the System section, and look for Software Updates under Maintenance, and select Update Software. Here’s the official support article on updating tvOS on Apple TV.

While you wait, catch up on the latest tvOS 10 coverage and see what changes are in store for the Apple TV 4 later this fall.
