Apple released a big update to the new Apple TV OS with a couple features a lot of customers have been waiting for. Although there is not a list yet as to what the new update encompasses, we do know two big features are now present. Siri now supports Apple Music so you can now say “Play Metal Machine Music by Lou Reed.”1 Apple also brought back support for the free Remote App. This means Apple’s free Remote app available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch now works with the new Apple TV. You can now use this app to navigate Apple TV and help enter login information such as passwords. Bluetooth Keyboards and the Podcast app still has yet to be seen but we expect this to come fairly soon. Leave comments on other features you have found below.
To update your Apple TV software, go to Settings > System > Software Updates > Update Software. If there’s an update, download and install it.
1Lou Reed’s “Metal Machine Music” is rated one of the worst songs ever. EVER.
