Apple has released the final version of tvOS 12, which makes a series of important changes to the Apple TV and Apple TV 4K, most notably the introduction of long-delayed Dolby Atmos support.
During WWDC 2018, Apple devoted a bit of screentime to tvOS 12, but not nearly as much as the others. AppleInsider dives in and find over 20 new features and changes coming on Monday to the Apple TV.
Following its Wednesday GM releases, Apple on Wednesday began calling for developers to submit apps compatible with iOS 12, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12, warning that iPhone and Apple Watch apps will have to meet new standards come March.
Prepping for launch, Apple on Wednesday released golden masters of iOS 12 and tvOS 12 to developers and the public, as well as new developer-only seeds of watchOS 5 and macOS Mojave.
At its Wednesday press event, Apple revealed that the final version of tvOS 12 — which makes a series of important changes to the Apple TV and Apple TV 4K, most notably the introduction of long-delayed Dolby Atmos support — is due Sept. 17.
Shortly after releasing the latest developer beta for iOS 12, Apple has shipped tenth beta versions of watchOS 5 and tvOS 12 in its developer-based testing program.
Apple has started to distribute the seventh betas of its milestone operating systems to developers for testing, with new builds of macOS Mojave, iOS 12, tvOS 12, and watchOS 5 made available just a week after the last batch.
Apple is continuing to shake down its upcoming operating system updates ahead of their expected release this fall, by providing participants of its public beta program with a fourth build of both iOS 12, macOS 10.14 and tvOS 12 to test out.
A day after the fourth developer beta, Apple has deployed the third public beta of iOS 12, and tvOS 12 for a wider testing audience.
