WWDC 2018 may have us looking to the future of tvOS, but the present has more than enough to keep you satisfied. Check out this week’s rather impressive list of new and updated Apple TV apps, including a couple stunning video games, apps to help you learn, and apps to help you (and your dog) relax.
Prices provided below are accurate at press time. Free downloads are for the app only and may require a subscription or in-app purchases for full functionality.
New Apple TV apps:
