Apple’s latest streaming media player is already pretty great thanks to the App Store and Siri, but it’s set to get a whole lot better this fall when tvOS 10 is released.
The upcoming tvOS 10 software update will add a bevy of new features to Apple TV this fall, including support for HomeKit-enabled accessories (shown in lead image), dark mode, single sign on, live tune-in and more.
There’s a bunch of great of Apple TV accessories, why not use your savings from today’s deal to pick up some of the best ones? At minimum, I’d recommend buying the SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Gaming Controller to turn your Apple TV into a legitimate game console. Have some more cash to spare? It’s a smart move to order an extra long Lightning cable for easier charging of the Siri remote. And if you’re going for a super minimalist look for your entertainment center, don’t forget to hide your Apple TV with one of these ingenious mounts.
TV is a major part of our lives. We gather together around our big screens to watch big shows and big events. Yet somehow, the overall experience of TV has continued to stagnate. Until now. It all starts by recognizing that apps are the future of television. HBO NOW, WatchESPN, Netflix, Hulu, iTunes — apps are quickly becoming how we watch today. So we built a foundation around this vision — with an operating system called tvOS, innovative ways to connect with your screen, and a smart use of Siri to search for something to watch. This is Apple TV. And this is where television is headed.
