Apple releases inaugural tvOS 11.4 beta to developers

Apple seeded the first beta of tvOS version 11.4 to developers for testing on Monday less than a week since releasing the final version of tvOS 11.3.

Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the new tvOS 11.4 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV through a profile that’s installed using Xcode. 

It is not clear yet what new features this new version will include, but will address minor bug fixes not discovered since the release of tvOS 11.3. It is also possible tvOS 11.4 could possibly include the re-emergence of support for AirPlay 2, which was removed from version 11.3.

    Just discovered this site. While it seems to have a lot of information, I can’t find anything. Your reviews are in 23 categories? Which categories? Can I see a list? Can I browse or search just one?

    I have an old AppleTV and I’m thinking about upgrading and then cord cutting. A key decision is which steaming TV service to go with. The choices seem to be; Hulu with live TV, DirectTV Now and Playstation Vue.

    There must be info on your site about these services? Searching gets me nothing.

    My specific question is whether any of the above work with the Apple TV app on the Apple TV. Having an app that consolidates information but can’t work with your principal TV streaming service greatly diminishes the value of: the apple TV app and the newest Apple TV – particularly if you don’t have 4K.

    Info on this seems on the web seems to be 2 years old. I’m stymied.
