tvOS 13 Release Date
At WWDC 2019, Apple announced tvOS 13. It will be released in the fall of 2019. A developer beta is available now, and a public beta will likely be released in July.
tvOS 13 Features
In tvOS 13, apps can now play full-screen video previews on the Home screen, so users can easily enjoy TV shows, movies, music, and games.
tvOS will also add support for multiple users, and every user gets their own “up next” queue. Switching between users can be done through a brand new Control Center. Other content that’s personalized includes Apple Music, which will also display lyrics in sync with the music that’s being played.
Apple is also adding support for Xbox One and Playstation DualShock 4 game controllers that will be able to control games on Apple TV, including those available in Apple Arcade, to be launched later this year.
Apple TV is also getting beautiful underwater HDR screensavers produced in a partnership with BBC Natural History.
The Apple TV will also include the updated TV app that brings together different ways to find and watch TV shows and movies. The Apple TV app offers Apple TV channels, personalized recommendations, and the entire iTunes movies and TV shows catalog that includes the largest collection of 4K HDR titles to browse, buy, or rent.
This fall, Apple TV+, Apple’s video subscription service, will be added to the Apple TV app.
