Apple has released a minor iOS update for the Apple TV 2G. Following the release of iOS 5 to the public last week, iOS 4.4 was released for the latest Apple TV.

Update 4.4.1 brings bug fixes and minor improvements. Apple is likely tightening up some of the features that it introduced in the last update.

iOS 4.4 for the Apple TV brought several new features, including AirPlay Mirroring for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, NHL, Photo Stream, Wall Street Journal Live, and Trailers.

You can download iOS 4.4.1 directly from our downloads page. The update can also be installed via software update on your Apple TV.

UPDATE: It appears Apple has pulled the update. Apparently, this update was doing more harm than good. We’ll keep you updated.
