Two weeks after seeding the second beta of tvOS 16 to developers, Apple today released the third beta of an impending tvOS 16 update for testing reasons.
By loading a profile onto the Apple TV using Xcode, developers can download the new tvOS 16 beta.
Cross-device connectivity is a feature in tvOS 16 that enables developers to combine Apple TV apps with iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch apps to create novel TV experiences. By including a shared keychain, Apple has also improved the functionality of multiple user profiles in tvOS 16 so that users won’t have to sign in and select their profile when starting an Apple TV app.
The Nintendo Joy-Cons and Pro Controller are now included in the list of supported game controllers, and the tvOS 16 Apple TV app now supports HDR10+. With tvOS 16, the Apple TV will enable Matter, a future standard that will enhance compatibility between different brands of smart home products.
tvOS 16 is now only available to developers, but Apple will release a public beta of the program to testers in July.
