The Fifth Beta of tvOS 10.1 Has Arrived for Developers, Download it Now

Apple has seeded tvOS 10.1 Beta 5 for those enrolled in the Apple Developer Program initiative. But if you have a previous beta of tvOS 10.1 installed right now, you can download the latest update over the air. We will show you how you can do just that in a few simple steps.

  • Turn on your Apple TV 4 unit.
  • Now head over to the Settings app from the home screen.
  • Scroll down and select System.
  • Now select Software Updates and install everything that's available.

The installation will take a few minutes depending on the speed of your Internet connection. Make sure you do not touch your Apple TV during the installation process. You want everything to go as smoothly as possible.

If you are installing tvOS 10.1 Beta for the first time, you can grab the IPSW firmware file directly from Apple's Developer Program website. The membership will set you back $99 on an annual basis which is somewhat worth it if you consider yourself an Apple fan, or a developer, of course.

Today's update packs nothing more than bug fixes and performance enhancements. But if you are installing tvOS 10.1 Beta for the first time, you can expect a brand new TV app gracing your home screen. Keep one thing in mind though: this app will work only in the United States as it taps into services that are not available in a lot of regions.

Regardless of who you are, we highly recommend updating to the latest build of tvOS 10.1 to ensure smooth funcaqtilty of your set top box. We will update our readers if Apple has something new inside this build. Till then, take the time to update your device immediately.
