After more than a year, Apple has updated the videos shown on the Aerial screensaver available on the fourth-generation Apple TV. The rotation of clips of landmarks and places has not changed since tvOS launched … until today.

Apple has added about twenty new clips of famous landmarks and places, including Dubai skyscrapers, Greenland snowscapes and the Liwa desert. All the new videos linked below …

In addition to the 34 clips that have been in the rotation since the launch of tvOS, Apple has added a myriad of new cities and countries — with breathtaking videography of Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Greenland, Dubai, and three new videos of Chinese landmarks.

Los Angeles is included in four clips; three day videos (1, 2, 3) and one at night (1). For Dubai, there are four new day videos (1, 2, 3, 4) and two night videos (1, 2). Greenland’s snowy vistas are featured in two day clips (1, 2) and one night scene (1). Hong Kong has three new day clips (1, 2, 3) and one night clip (1). There’s also one shot of the expansive Liwa desert (1) and three new Chinese landmarks (1, 2, 3).


If you use the Aerial screensaver, Apple TV cycles through the clips over time. You might not see these new videos on your big screen television for a little while. Apple TV selects clips at random, downloading new videos as per your settings (you can select Every Day in Apple TV settings to get new videos faster).

You can get a taste of the new videos with the above gallery or you can watch all the Apple TV screensavers here on my personal blog. The page auto-updates when (however infrequently) the feed gets updated.
