How to Auto-in­stall fu­ture pur­chases

Mac|Life - - CREATE -

Go to Set­tings

If you want to down­load tvOS ver­sions of apps to your Ap­ple TV when you pur­chase their iOS ver­sions on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, with­out hav­ing to man­u­ally down­load them, go to Set­tings > Apps on your Ap­ple TV.

En­able auto-up­date

The first set­ting on that page is “Au­to­mat­i­cally Up­date Apps.” By turn­ing this on, you won’t need to man­u­ally check for up­dates, help­ing you to en­sure that all your tvOS apps are al­ways on the lat­est ver­sion.

En­able auto-in­stall

High­light “Au­to­mat­i­cally In­stall Apps.” By de­fault, this fea­ture – which al­lows tvOS ver­sions of your iOS app pur­chases to be au­to­mat­i­cally in­stalled on your Ap­ple TV – is turned off. Click the track­pad to en­able it.

En­ter your pass­word

You need to sign in to your Ap­ple ID in order to en­able au­to­matic down­loads, so en­ter your pass­word — us­ing ei­ther the key­board or by hold­ing the Siri but­ton and spelling it out — and then choose OK.

In­stall new iOS apps

Be­fore you in­stall any new app on your iOS de­vice, keep an eye out for the words “Of­fers Ap­ple TV App” be­low the screen­shots on its App Store page. Click Get or the price but­ton (if it’s a paid-for app) and in­stall it.

Auto-in­stall on tvOS

As the app gets on with the task of in­stalling on your iOS de­vice, the tvOS ver­sion will au­to­mat­i­cally in­stall on your Ap­ple TV too, pro­vided that you are signed in to the same Ap­ple ID on both de­vices, of course.
