Update tvOS 11 Public Beta to tvOS 11 GM – Here’s How You Do it
tvOS 11 GM is now available to download, and if you’re a tvOS 11 Public Beta user, then you too can grab the latest near-final update.
tvOS 11 Public Beta Users Can Get a Taste of tvOS 11 GM for Free - Here’s How to Update
We got a brand new Apple TV 4K as well as tvOS 11. It was only likely that tvOS 11 GM would soon become available for download too. Right on cue, Apple has flipped the switch, enabling developers and beta testers to get hold of the Gold Master build of Apple’s TV platform.
Just like before, tvOS 11 GM is available as an over the air download for everyone, including public beta testers. So yes, this means that you do not need an Apple Developer Program membership in order to try out Apple’s near-final build of its TV platform. In order to update your Apple TV to the GM build right now, just follow the steps outlined below.
- Turn on your Apple TV and make sure you are online.
- Now, open the Settings app from the tvOS home screen.
- Scroll all the way down and select System.
- Now select Software Updates and install the available download.
Once the download is completed, you’ll be prompted for installation. As soon as you begin the installation process, you will be required to restart your device. This means that your Apple TV will become completely unusable for a short period of time. As soon as the installation is complete, you’ll boot back into the stablest build of tvOS 11 you’ve ever used. And the only thing that was needed to get there was a little bit of patience.
Keep one thing in mind: if Apple finds a last minute bug in the current tvOS 11 GM build, then it will be forced to release a brand new update in order to patch things up. At the same time, there’s a chance it might not patch anything at all, and will instead opt for pushing out a small over the air update on the big release day of tvOS 11 final for everyone else.
We will update our readers as soon as we get wind of more tvOS 11 related news, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, refreshen up your Apple TV set-top box with the GM update. You deserve it!
