Posted by Linda Scarling on April 24, 2018

If you like to know what is happening with the tvOs 11, then you should consider going for the public beta that is now available! Here’s how you can download it to your Apple TV!

Once in a while, Apple provides updates to their devices running iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS that are basically designed to be downloaded by developers and sometimes they try to release beta updates for everybody known as the public betas that you can install on your Apple devices such as iPhone, Mac, iPad and some others.

The idea behind the public betas is to give users a temporary update that they can test on their devices and then send the feedback to Apple before they decide to release it or not. However, the developer previews are always technical and are not designed for the normal Apple device user. It’s always advisable to wait for the official release of an update before you install it on your Apple device.

The tvOS 11 update will be officially released later this year, and Apple has not released any substantial statement about it. And for the first time, Apple is releasing the public beta for curious users to test and see how it works.

If you like to try out the public beta of the tvOS 11, you just need to sign up for the Apple’s Beta Software program and make sure that your Apple device is ready for the download.
