Apple on Tuesday released tvOS 14.4 to the public with bug fixes but no known user-facing feature updates.

The company didn't include any release notes on the update's new features. Apple TV software updates are typically minor, focusing on stability, minor user-experience changes, and other under-the-hood tweaks.

Apple had previously released two tvOS 14.4 betas, one in December 2020 and another in early January 2021. The release candidate went out on January 21.

Users can update tvOS on Apple TV by opening the Settings, selecting System, then Software Updates, and then Update Software. Once the update is available, select Download and Install.

The primary tvOS 14 update released in fall of 2020. It added better Picture-in-Picture support, HomeKit Doorbell alerts and camera feeds, Game Center syncing for Apple Arcade, and Audio Syncing. Updates since then have included bug fixes and minor changes to the UI. December's 14.3 update added Apple Fitness+ and AirPods Max support, along with improved navigation.
