Apple rolls out tvOS 12 with Dolby Atmos, ‘zero sign-on’ & more

Apple has released the final version of tvOS 12, which makes a series of important changes to the Apple TV and Apple TV 4K, most notably the introduction of long-delayed Dolby Atmos support.

If an Apple TV hasn’t already downloaded the update automatically, the upgrade can be forced by opening the Settings app, then selecting System, Software Updates, and finally “Update Software.”

Dolby Atmos is an alternative form of surround sound that simulates sounds in 3D space instead of merely pushing them to different channels. In September 2017 Apple said it would support the format in a future tvOS update, but months went by without news. The company finally broke its silence at WWDC 2018 only to say people would have to wait for tvOS 12.

Another important upgrade is “zero sign-on,” which will let people authenticate a (compatible) cable provider simply through location and network data, skipping any need to enter credentials. Similarly Apple is bringing password AutoFill to tvOS, meaning that when people do have to sign into an app, that process can be extremely quick.
