Download tvOS 11.1 Final for Apple TV 4 & Apple TV 4K – Here’s How
Apple TV 4 and Apple TV 4K users can now download tvOS 11.1 software update. Here’s how you can right away.
tvOS 11.1 Arrives in the Nick of Time to Boost Performance and Squash Bugs.
It’s a well-known fact that tvOS 11 was not a huge update in any way. It exists mainly to compliment the Apple TV 4K, nothing else. But aside from that, Apple squeezed in some little changes that makes its set-top box relevant in the entertainment space. This in turn means that you should keep on updating your Apple TV as updates arrive in order to keep things as smooth as possible.
So, without further ado, here’s how you can install tvOS 11.1 final right now.
- Turn on your Apple TV using the Siri Remote.
- Now open the Settings app.
- Scroll down and select System.
- Enter Software updates and install the available updates there.
The entire process won’t take that much time since both Apple TV devices are packed with mighty powerful hardware. Keep one thing in mind though: your options when it comes to clean installing the software are somewhat limited. Why? Because the Apple TV 4K does not have a USB-C or any kind of USB port to interface with iTunes. This means that you can clean install tvOS 11.1 only on the original Apple TV 4. If you are interested in doing so, then check out the guide posted below.

Entertainment lovers should go ahead and install the latest update onto their Apple TV straight away since it promises stability and performance related enhancements. I would suggest opting for the over the air route as it gets the job done and is the quickest way to experience what’s new from Apple.
