What’s New in Beta 6:

We’re still digging through the new beta – like a tunnelling machine – so check back later for all the changes, additions, fixes and tweaks we find.

Summary of New Features:

Apple has promised a number of new features that will be coming in future betas of tvOS 12. Currently available for testing is Dolby Atmos audio support and swiping on aerial screensavers to move onto the next one. With screensavers from the International Space Station (ISS) of Earth promised to come. You will be able to tap and see the location of where the screensaver was recorded. Alongside, zero sign-on for supported Internet service providers. So not too many ground-breaking features but all-in-all it improves the tvOS experience.

Summary of Beta Changes:

  • Dolby Atmos support is now working.
  • Tap to see screensaver location only works on ‘Passing Downtown Los Angeles’ at this time.
