Being able to wirelessly connect an external gaming controller has been an option on iOS for quite some time. However, native support hasn't been. It was only with the launch of iOS 14.5, for instance, that Apple added native support for Sony's DualSense PlayStation 5 controller and Microsoft's wireless controller for the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. And now Nintendo is getting in on the fun, too.
Experiencing Netflix on your Apple TV is now more enjoyable and consistent with Apple's guidelines as the app has adopted the native video scrubber in tvOS 15.
Apple has released the new tvOS 15.4 update and HomePod software 15.4, bringing support for joining captive Wi-Fi networks to the Apple TV and HomePod.
As we move towards an expected March release date, Apple moves right along with the beta testing process. Which means we have new beta seeds for developers. And, soon enough, public testers.
tvOS 15.4 lets your Apple TV join captive Wi-Fi networks, which are networks that require additional sign-in steps like in hotel rooms, with a little help from your iPhone or iPad.
tvOS 15.4 adds an Up Next list directly to the Apple TV video player for easier access to your queue of movies and television shows you've started to watch or plan on watching.
Earlier this week, Apple officially released the iOS 15.3 update out into the wild, along with a few others. But the company isn't slowing down anytime soon. So today, Apple has moved right along with the seeding of yet another update for its major platforms.
Apple has been working on the next update for iOS, and its other platforms, for a bit of time now. The beta process for iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 wasn't as long as some have been in the past, but, considering the fact it doesn't appear the new software updates feature a variety of new features, that is to be expected. Still, the wait is now over.
It might be Friday, and it might be one week before Christmas swings around, but that isn't stopping Apple from getting a new beta build out there into the wild. Apple is looking to bring iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 to the public in the near future. Which means the beta process must go on.
The last time Apple seeded betas for its next updates to its operating systems, it was still October. But, today, the company is back at it again, preparing developers (and, eventually, public beta testers) for what's to come on the software front. As such, there are new beta seeds available for developers.
While Apple continues to work on the next big update for its mobile operating system (and iPadOS), the company has seen fit to release another minor update in the meantime. But this one's for its set-top boxes, the Apple TV HD and the Apple TV 4K, which is a small change of pace for Apple to say the least.
It has been in the works for weeks now, but the wait is finally over. Along with the public release of macOS Monterey 12, Apple has also released the next big updates for iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. Now, users with eligible devices at their disposal can download and install iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1 for free.
