Just a few moments after the September iPhone event keynote ended, Apple has started seeding out the golden master release for tvOS 10 today to all current testers and developers. To update to the final build, developers can check through the Software Update section on the Apple TV, or grab the Configuration Profile from Apple’s Developer center if you’d like to install it for the first time.

Apple’s newest tvOS software introduces Dark Mode, Single Sign-on, HomeKit, and YouTube search to the latest Apple TV. tvOS 10 beta 3 brought in more language support with Siri, and some improved functionality within the Music app. tvOS 10 beta 2 brought in an entirely new UI for Apple Music with a Library view inspired by the iPod Classic’s UI. tvOS 10 looks to be focused primarily on small changes to improve the whole system, where as iOS 10 and watchOS 3 have gone through some radical changes themselves.

For screenshots of the new Music UI introduced in tvOS 10 beta 2, check back on our previous article. To see our breakdown of tvOS 10’s changes, take a look at some of our recent articles:
