Apple TV in Hand

Apple today released a trio of major updates, one giving the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices improved iBeacon connectivity and the other enabling enhanced Wi-Fi performance and better reliability when waking up your Mac from sleep, among other changes.

The third update is focused on the $99 Apple TV media-streaming box. Now available in Software Update, the Apple TV 6.2 firmware brings no new features and appears to be a simple maintenance update accompanying the aforementioned iOS 7.1.2 and OS X 10.9.4 updates…

Direct download links are available through our Downloads page.

The Apple TV 6.2 software update carries a build number of 11D257c and is available for second and third-generation Apple TV devices.

Your Apple TV should install it automatically. If not, go to Settings > General > Software Updates and select Update Software to manually apply the bug-fix update.

Again, there don’t seem to be any new features in this update other than bug fixes, but if you’ve noticed other changes, drop us a line on or post in comments and I’ll update and credit accordingly.

    is it for 1st gen. ATV? Sorry too lazy to read at 2:00 pm plus at work… :/

      No. Only second and third gen.

    I wonder why Apple named it 6.2, when it only contains bug fixes.

  • Anmol Malhotra

    So many bug fixes updates today. I’m wondering when we will enter an age when there’s software with no bugs. I know its not possible but still can we sometime in future?

    • regkilla

      No. There will always be bugs.

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        Exactly! When you’re dealing with a codebase as large as iOS there will always be bugs. Even when something doesn’t have bugs that doesn’t mean it’s perfect either…

    • Matt Dowdy

      Hopefully never, perfect software with no bugs = no jailbreak!

    • Ethan Humphrey

      You be happy, without them, there would be no jailbreak

  • Daniel

    I hope the Apple TV receives a major update this fall along with a new UI.

  • David Fabian

    My 2nd gen AppleTV has been freezing a lot lately, I hope this helps…

  • Straightshoota

    • Rowan09

      • Straightshoota
