What is tvOS 13 and how to get it for your Apple TV?

If you’ve been using Apple TV, you’d be waiting for Apple to get through its beta period of testing for tvOS 13.

Now no need to wait. Packed with tons of new features — like Apple Arcade, multiple user profiles, and a revamped home screen — tvOS 13 is now available for download on Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD.

vOS 13 is the latest version of tvOS, with a new home screen, multi-user support, updated screensavers and many more.

Among the most remarkable features, you’ll find once you update your set-top box is the inclusion of multiple user profiles. Apple has taken into account its iPhones, iPads, and Apple TVs’ single-user devices. This means every user preference, from font size to dark mode, must be chosen for the device itself, not the person using it.

You can now personalize your video and music recommendations in Apple TV and can pick up where you left off — a key piece of Apple’s video strategy. It encourages people to view content on multiple devices having Apple’s TV app.

Apple Arcade is yet another great addition. Apple’s gaming service was priced at $5 per month, and now you can experience that unlimited gaming experience on the larger screen in the house.

You can also use a Sony PlayStation DualShock 4 or Microsoft Xbox Wireless controller for playing these games. Earlier, Apple TV was only compatible with some specifically built iOS game controllers like the Nimbus Steel Series. Now Apple has taken the same route as Android TV devices like the Nvidia Shield TV.

Also, the home screen has gotten a refreshed look, though not everyone will be excited by this change. Previews are full-screen, with specific app icons floating on top of the live-action background. Just like Netflix’s auto-preview feature.

Apple Music – A new experience

Apple Music is a great experience on Apple TV in tvOS 13. It’s all due to the addition of perfectly synced on-screen lyrics that can also be pushed forward and backward within a track. TvOS 13 will play a crucial role in the rollout of Apple TV+, Apple’s streaming video service.
