Hands-on with tvOS 10.2: fast scrolling, updated Remote app & more

You no longer have to scroll through long lists on your Apple TV for minutes on end like an animal, courtesy of the latest firmware released yesterday alongside iOS 10.3, macOS Sierra 10.12.4 and watchOS 3.2.

It lets you scroll through longs lists with ease and contains other user-facing features and under-the-hood improvements. For instance, rented iTunes movies can be finally enjoyed on other devices.

And with the updated Remote app, you can control¬†the¬†set-top box¬†via your¬†iPad or other iOS device, browse your playlists¬†and more. Be sure to watch Andrew’s hands-on video for everything new in tvOS 10.2 and share your favorite new feature in comments.
