Though tvOS 11 didn't get any mention on stage at WWDC 2017, nonetheless we received a new tvOS 11 Beta update right after the keynote. Unlike other betas which Apple released, this one's a little sober in terms of features. In fact, I'll go as far as saying that you might not even notice anything new at first glance, because there's really nothing new at face value. Still, Apple saw it an update big enough to warrant it a new version number. Today, that software is seeing its fourth beta being delivered to developers over the air.

The final build of tvOS 11 will become available for everyone later this year. But given Apple's silence on tvOS, it seems as though there's something big coming later. Whether it's software or hardware, remains to be seen. Whatever the case might be, time will reveal it all.
In the meantime, make sure you update your Apple TV 4 to the latest tvOS 11 build if you have an older beta installed.
