There’s no doubt left that iOS 11, macOS High Sierra and watchOS 4 were the stars of the show on stage at Apple’s WWDC 2017 opening keynote. Apple didn’t even bother talking about tvOS 11 yet it released the update alongside other software. Given the rumors, it appears as though Apple has something huge to announce later this year. It’s likely a new Apple TV with extremely powerful internals that support 4K video as well as HDR10. That conversation can be reserved for a later date, however. Today, the main attraction is tvOS 11 Beta 5, and is a piece of software you should update to if you’re running an older version of the beta.

Given how things are moving in the world of Apple TV and tvOS, it’s safe to say that tvOS 11 is not the entire story we get to see this year. It’s highly likely that Apple has more to show in a separate event, maybe alongside the new iPhone 8 (who knows).

It will also be interesting to see how Apple is going to bring 4K content to iTunes (finally) and whether or not the company will charge extra for it. After all, the Cupertino giant does charge more for an ‘HD’ version of the content with the ‘SD’ quality of the same costing significantly less. We’ll see for sure in the days and weeks to come.
