Apple TV Receives Cosmetic Improvements
Apple is constantly updating the look and aesthetics of it’s operating systems. Take a look back every year and you’ll see what we’re on about. With the ever-changing face of iOS and Mac OS it only seems natural that Apple TV’s operating system should get updated too.
Together with a new beta launch for mobile and mac operating systems, iOS 8 and Mac OS X Yosemite, Apple is releasing an updated version of the Apple TV software which includes a sleeker look and a more modern feel. The TV set top box from Apple is moving forward in leaps and bound of late, and lets users play iTunes content in 1080p straight onto their TV set.
This picture found on Twitter (courtesy of Danny Perez, or DannyPhantom36 as he’s known on the site) shows off the new user interface included with the software, with it’s flatter icons that evoke the same feeling as those included in iOS 7 last year, and which will also come to OS X soon.
The font type is also a bit more modern, falling in line with fonts currently in use with modern Apple systems which have been rolled out this year. You might recognise the modern and sleek Helvetica Neue font, if you’re a typeface fan. It’s also quite thin and tall, which makes it quite a bit easier to read.
Whilst Apple TV wasn’t updated much beyond cosmetic changes in this upcoming update, the previous update (in case you missed it) brought in the Family Sharing and iCloud Photo support. These recently updated features were added to bring the device closer into the Apple family of devices.
The new version of the software for Apple TV should come around when iOS 8 and Mac OS X Yosemite go official this Autumn, and should be streamed directly to your Apple TV box for instant updating, as soon as it’s ready. Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek, and stay tuned for more updates.
