After last week, Apple was not going to take long to launch the new versions of its operating systems. At the moment of beginning to write these lines, those of Cupertino have already released iOS 10.2, watchOS 3.1.1 and tvOS 10.1, but it is not ruled out that in the next few minutes, also the final version of MacOS Sierra 10.12.2, the operating system for Apple computers.
What is perhaps more important of the updates included in this post would be the new TV application for Apple TV that has come from the hand of tvOS 10.1, but it would be if it were available to everyone. At first, as usual and if I’m not mistaken, this TV application will only be available for the fourth generation Apple TV that are configured for US territory. The other important new feature of tvOS 10.1 is what is known in the United States as Single Sign-On, which will allow us to identify ourselves in several services in a more centralized way. I say its name of the United States because, like the TV application, in other countries we will not be able to use it yet.
tvOS 10.1 release brings bug fixes. With these two absences, we could say that, outside of the United States, the latest update of tvOS comes to correct errors. At least I hope it solves a problem I’ve been experiencing in which the background of the interface of my Apple TV 4 became dark even though I had the clear mode selected, something that solved by forcing a reboot of the Apple TV.
If you have a third-generation Apple TV, Apple has also released today the version 8.4.2 update of its firmware, which, in my opinion and taking into account the betas they have released from iOS, may include some important security patch.
On the other hand, Apple has also released watchOS 3.1.1, a new version of the operating system for the apple clock that comes with more news than the version for Apple TV. Although the new version of watchOS is used to correct errors, it also includes a more important innovation that we can mention: support for Unicode 9 or, in other words, we can use emojis that we could not use in the previous version.
As always, do not hesitate to leave your experiences if you decide to install any of the versions mentioned in this post.
