Apple Gives a Second Beta of tvOS 16.1 to Developers for Testing ...

Apple released the second beta of tvOS 16.1 to developers for testing on Tuesday. The new beta release comes one week after the initial release of tvOS 16.1.

The new beta for tvOS 16.1 is compatible with the Apple TV 4K (1st and 2nd generation) and the Apple TV HD. The new beta can be downloaded to a compatible Apple TV that has the appropriate profile installed, which can be done by downloading it onto the Apple TV using Xcode.

tvOS updates are usually minor, focusing on under-the-hood bug fixes and performance improvements rather than public-facing changes.

Apple has provided some information on tvOS updates in its tvOS support manual, which is updated after each tvOS launch. The manual has not yet been updated.

MacTrast and Apple both advise users not to install any betas on their daily driver Apple TV, particularly early versions of new operating systems. Instead, use only betas on a device set aside for testing.
