Apple has today released tvOS 16.4 beta 4 to developers, with the release coming a week or so after the company also released the third beta to the same group of people.
The latest beta comes as Apple continues to work its way through the beta program and test the update ahead of making it available to everyone, likely later this month.
The update is now available to those who have the correct Apple TV developer beta profile installed via the Xcode app on a Mac.
This tvOS update isn’t expected to bring any big new features or improvements, and the first three betas haven’t hinted at anything of particular note. That doesn’t mean that the update isn’t worth downloading when it’s made available to everyone, however.
Updates like this often deal with issues under the hood that people might not necessarily notice. Nevertheless, they could cause issues further down the line.
Apple will no doubt announce the next big iteration of tvOS during the WWDCe vent that is expected to take place in June. That event will likely see Apple announce tvOS 17 alongside a slew of other software updates for iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Apple Watches. The new updates will be available to everyone around September time, likely alongside new iPhones.
