Apart from iOS 9.2 and OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan, Apple is also working in the background to improve the software that powers its newly released set-top box - the Apple TV 4. Currently sitting at tvOS 9.0.1 for public users, the software is at version 9.1 beta in the background and is currently being tested by developers and refined by Apple itself.

tvOS 9.1 is no more than a maintenance, bug fix and performance enhancing release that aims to enhance the overall user experience for those who are in the ownership of the new Apple TV 4. If you have tvOS 9.1 beta 2 installed onto your Apple TV 4 right now, then we highly recommend that you update it to the third pre-release build straight away, ensuring that things run as smoothly as ever for you.

tvOS is powerful in a lot of ways and combines the best of Apple with the power of Siri, allowing you to glide through Cupertino's massive content library using the power of your voice. While Siri is being refined as we speak for the Apple TV 4, but Cupertino has laid down all the necessary foundations to give its new 'hobby' device a good head start among consumers.

For the first time ever, Apple has brought apps to the Apple TV as well as a full-fledged App Store, and while developer uptake might seem a little slow in the start, but the potential of crafting apps and games for the big screen is most definitely there, and we're certain that many individuals around the world will definitely conjure up some beautiful software for Apple's set-top device.

At this current point in time, the market is flooded with a bunch of devices that aim to make our TVs more 'smart' in a lot of ways. But given that every company is at its peak when it comes to delivering high-end features to the average consumer in the living room space, it remains to be seen where Apple's set-top box will stand in the months to come when compared to the likes of the Fire TV, Roku etc.

Given Apple's credentials when it comes to the Apple TV, we have high hopes that the newfound product would do good in the space, and even if it doesn't, Cupertino has laid down a good foundation for itself and aspiring developers already. Do you agree?
