Apple has released tvOS 14.3 to the public with the Fitness app and improved Apple TV+ content navigation in the TV app.
The Apple TV software does not see major changes in each point update like iOS and macOS do. Instead Apple refines the platform and changes parts of the user experience.
Users can update the Apple TV by opening the Settings, selecting System, then Software Updates, and then Update Software. Once the update is available, select Download and Install.
For tvOS 14.3 Apple added the Fitness app, the vehicle for the Apple Fitness+ subscription service that launched alongside this update. While using the app, you’ll be required to connect your Apple Watch running watchOS 7.2 to access the service.
Apple also added refinements to the Apple TV app to improve content discovery. Apple TV+ content was obfuscated behind a confusing UI, and Apple hopes the changes bring its exclusive movies and TV shows to the forefront of the app.
Lastly, Apple also included support for AirPods Max, the company’s new personal audio accessory. The over-ear headphones will work with the Apple TV for audio playback under the tvOS update.
Apple also released iOS 14.3, iPadOS 14.3, and watchOS 7.2 with compatibility for the latest products and new features like ProRAW on the iPhone 12 Pro. All of your devices need to be running the latest software to take advantage of the multi-screen experience that Apple Fitness+ provides.
The first version of tvOS 14 brought better picture-in-picture support, HomeKit Doorbell alerts and camera feeds, UI customization and more to Apple’s set-top streamer. Updates since then have included bug fixes and minor changes to the UI.
Alongside the tvOS 14 update for the fourth- and fifth-generation Apple TV units, is an update to 8.4.6 for the third-generation Apple TV unit.
