Siri

A smarter Siri, for faster access to what you want.

Have a good idea of what you want to watch? With the new tvOS, Siri not only lets you search for a specific topic, it allows you to combine multiple criteria in the same search. For example, ask Siri to “Show me spy movies from the 1960s.” Or search for videos on YouTube. Just say the words.

Single Sign-on

Do you like typing in user names and passwords for every TV app? We didn’t think so.

Now when you enter your cable or satellite subscription credentials on Apple TV, you get immediate access to all the apps in your pay TV package that support single sign-on. So you authenticate once and you’re done. Cue the applause sign.

Appearance

Dark or light? You choose.

Change the look and feel of your screen in an instant. Choose the light background to make posters and icons pop. Or select the dark option and make watching TV at home feel more like going to the movies.

Photos

See old photos and videos in surprising new ways.

The new Memories feature works with your iCloud Photo Library to automatically find photos and videos you haven’t seen or thought about for a while. Then it displays them in a beautiful collection.

Apple Music

Music never looked so good.

Apple Music has a new look and new features that make it easier than ever to find the music you love. Discover new artists, listen to live radio — including Beats 1 — and explore daily playlists curated by Apple editors.1
