The latest tvOS update brings 3D movies

Last updated

Apple has updated its home entertainment experience with the release of tvOS 17.2, which brings features like 3D movies for the Vision Pro headset.

Following the launch of the most recent tvOS 17.2 beta update on November 14, Apple has formally rolled out the latest iteration of its operating system tailored for the Apple TV.

One of the most notable additions is the support for 3D movies, which aligns with the anticipated launch of the Apple Vision Pro in early 2024. It was first spotted on November 9, which noted the presence of a new 3D logo on certain movies in the iTunes Movie Store, hinting at Apple's preparation for a more immersive viewing experience.

The update also significantly improves the Apple TV app, simplifying navigation and content discovery. A newly designed sidebar organizes content from various apps and streaming services, including Apple TV+, with dedicated sections for Search, Watch Now, MLS Season Pass, Sports, Store, and Library.

Additionally, a "Channels and Apps" area allows users to access content from specific services such as ABC, CBS, Comedy Central, Hulu, ESPN, Discovery, Peacock, Prime Video, and more.

At the same time as updating tvOS, Apple has introduced an update to HomePod Software bringing it to version 17.2.
