tvOS 9.0.1 Software Update for New Apple TV Available
Apple has released the first update to the new Apple TV, versioned as tvOS 9.0.1. The update likely focuses on bug fixes, though specific changes aren’t yet known as release notes have not accompanied the download.
Owners of the new Apple TV (4th generation) can download the software update now through the devices Over The Air update mechanism, found by going to the Settings application, choosing “System”, and selecting “Software Update” section. The tvOS update will reboot the Apple TV automatically when the software update has successfully installed.
It’s unlikely any new features were added to tvOS 9.0.1, and instead are likely on hold for tvOS 9.1 which is currently in beta. For example there continues to be no support for external Bluetooth keyboards, and there is no ability for using the iPhone as a keyboard or remote control with the Remote app, both of which would make entering text and passwords on the new Apple TV considerably easier.
