Apple issues fourth beta of tvOS 10.2 for developers with accelerated scrolling, VideoToolbox

1 post in this topic



Apple on Tuesday released a fourth developer beta of tvOS 10.2, an update for the fourth-generation Apple TV that should mostly add minor feature enhancements.


To install the new code, developers must connect an Apple TV to a computer via a USB cable, and download and install the beta using iTunes or Apple Configurator. People must, of course, have an official developer account.

While it's unclear what's changed in the latest beta, 10.2 as a whole is due to add things like accelerated scrolling, support for the Device Enrollment Program, and wider mobile device management (MDM) options, according to Apple notes. 

It will also implement support for the VideoToolbox framework, which lets people tap directly into hardware-accelerated encoding and decoding functions. The framework is already present in iOS and macOS.

The previous 10.2 beta was released a little over a week ago on Feb. 20.

The last major update of tvOS came with December's 10.1 release, which introduced single sign-on support for TV providers and a dedicated "TV" app. The latter centralizes content from iTunes and some third-party apps, making it easier to keep up with shows.
