Apple TV update allows whole family to watch in harmony

Apple's tvOS13 has landed and brings Apple Arcade, multi-user support and a fresh home screen on Apple TV.

The updated operating system means families no longer have to fight for a profile. Each user can create their own profile and view recommendations and layouts that are relevant to them.

The Apple TV Home screen has also been updated with a new Control Center that includes a search feature, time and date, profile information, a current playback widget, and a picture-in-picture feature for continuously playing your video while using other apps ,

Not just for television

The new update also includes support for Apple Arcade, the technology giant's still-young gaming platform.

Apple's subscription service, previously available only on the iPhone, iPad and MacBook, features a curated list of exclusive titles, including Frogger's Toy Town, The Bradwell Conspiracy and Rayman Mini.

If you have Apple TV and you want to spend $ 4.99 / £ 4.99 / $ 7.99 / month on Apple Arcade, you can play these games using your PlayStation's DualShock 4 or Xbox Wireless Bluetooth controllers.

With the launch of Apple TV Plus on November 1, it's no wonder that the company is polishing its media player in anticipation. The new streaming service will offer exclusive shows, films and documentaries by renowned filmmakers such as JJ Abrams, Steven Spielberg and M Night Shyamalan.

It only costs $ 4.99 / £ 4.99 / $ 7.99 a month – the same price as Apple Arcade – and could be a problem for Netflix. It remains to be seen if the streaming service will be able to deter clients like Bojack Horseman, Breaking Bad and Stranger Things.
