Apple tvOS 12 now official
To cap off all the software updates Apple just announced the tvOS 12, the next operating system for the Apple TV 4K. Apart from that, it’s been reported that Charter Communications, the second-largest cable operator in the US, will be offering the Apple TV 4K to their subscribers.
As for the features, users no longer have to type in their passwords as zero sign-on is now available on tvOS 12. Simply put, the Apple TV now detects a user’s broadband network and automatically signs them in to all supported apps they have received through their subscriptions. Zero sign-on will start with charter later this year.
Apple also partnered with the International Space Station National Lab and Center for the Advancement of Science in Space to bring in new aerial screensavers to their Apple TV. iOS 12 users can now securely AutoFill passwords from iPhone to iPad to Apple TV to easily access Apple TV apps.
The Apple TV Remote is now automatically added to the Control Center on a user’s iPhone or iPad for quicker access to Apple TV controls. Lastly, Home control systems like Control4, Crestron and Savant, and Siri can now be used to control your Apple TV
The tvOS 12 developer preview is now available for Apple Developer Program members here while the OS will officially launch as a free update to Apple TV 4K and Apple TV 4th generation this fall.
