Wrap Up

If you are an avid content consumer then the latest update of tvOS is a must-download for you. But keep one thing in mind - the TV app does not work outside the United States. So if you live outside the boundaries of the U.S. then the update might not mean much to you. But still, given the amount of fixes Apple has packed under the hood, it’s still warranted for you to download it instantly. Besides, any update is good regardless of what it brings to the table. You need your Apple TV running absolutely smoothly at all times, right?

Of course you do.
