Ap­ple is re­leas­ing a num­ber of new fea­tures for its Ap­ple TV 4K through the new tvOS 12, in­clud­ing the abil­ity to sup­port Dolby At­mos au­dio. Ap­ple TV 4K al­ready sup­ports Dolby Vi­sion and ac­cord­ing to the com­pany will be the only stream­ing player to be both Dolby Vi­sion and Dolby At­mos cer­ti­fied. Ap­ple says by spring, ‘iTunes will be home to the largest col­lec­tion of Dolby At­mos-sup­ported movies in the world, and th­ese ti­tles will also in­clude Dolby At­mos au­dio for free’.

With tvOS 12, Ap­ple has sim­pli­fied its au­then­ti­ca­tion process with zero sign-on. It works by Ap­ple TV de­tect­ing the user’s broad­band net­work and au­to­mat­i­cally signs them in to all the sup­ported apps they re­ceive through their sub­scrip­tion. Ap­ple is col­lab­o­rat­ing with the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion Na­tional Lab and the Cen­tre for the Ad­vance­ment of Sci­ence in Space up­dat­ing its screen­savers show­ing aerial shots from space. Users can also swipe to see where the shots came from. Other up­dates to tvOS 12 in­clude Au­toFill pass­words from iPhone or iPads to the Ap­ple TV for easy sign in. The Ap­ple TV re­mote will be added to the con­trol cen­tre for iPhone and iPad. The new tvOS will be avail­able in spring later this year.
