Apple today released tvOS 11.4.1

Apple Releases tvOS 11.4.1

A month after the 11.4 update 11.4.1 comes with some minor updates.

Over the last few month it has honestly been tough covering the Apple TV as most of the updates have been minor. The last major update introduced AirPlay 2.

Unless any new bugs arise, this will most likely be the final stop before tvOS 12 which is due for a Fall release.

Caring for Your Siri Remote (ATV4 Remote Guide)

“They don’t build them like they used to”

With newer technology comes all sorts of newer lighter materials. Take the new Apple TV Siri Remote. You can talk to it, you can use the touch interface at the top of the remote but unfortunately it’s fragile. The main surface is made of glass, combined with the slick metal back cover and the high price for replacement, creates the perfect situation for some very expensive mistakes. Compared to the virtually indestructible 2nd and 3rd generation metal remotes, the 4th generation Apple TV remotes simply aren’t as durable. Even the plastic 1st generation remotes have a bit of a leg up. Based on feedback you could carpet your house or wrap your hand in bubble wrap while using the remote but an easier more logical solution a resistant silicone case. Reminds us of the issues that Nintendo had with the Wii and all those broken TV screens…Good times…
