Updates for Apple TV are rather mundane. They don’t pack as much as excitement when compared to the likes of iOS, watchOS or even macOS. But nonetheless, it keeps getting updates for stability improvements, so you can watch that flick on Netflix or iTunes without having to worry about crashes or any other issues.

tvOS 11.2 is an update that focuses on the stability front while introducing improvements to frame rate and HDR content, so it’s a good idea to download it right now. On both the Apple TV 4 and Apple TV 4K, you can grab the update over the air by following the steps outlined below as they are.

  • Turn on your Apple TV.
  • Launch the Settings app.
  • Scroll all the way down and open System.
  • Over here you will see an entry called System updates. Install the available update.

The entire process won’t take more than a few minutes. When you are done, you can continue with life normally.

You have the option to download the IPSW restore file from Apple’s servers too if you like. You can use that to clean install tvOS 11.2 onto your Apple TV using iTunes. But keep in mind that the restore file is only available for the Apple TV 4 and not the Apple TV 4K. Why? Because the Apple TV 4K does not feature a USB port for interfacing with a PC or Mac. Also, you will need a USB-C to USB-C or a USB-C to USB-A cable in order to connect your Apple TV 4 with your PC or Mac. You can grab one for cheap, and will eventually come in handy somewhere else too.
