Apple has launched its latest operating system for the Apple TV. The tvOS 15 comes with a new look for the built-in video player interface on the Apple TV. There will be more readable titles and discoverable controls. Also, similar to the large tiles in apps that we see on iPhone, iPad, and Mac will be now seen on the video player on Apple TV via tvOS 15. The titles of various TV shows and movies appear in large type on the bottom left area of the screen near the progress bar. The titles of the episode will appear in smaller types right above the name of the series.
Along with this, a new info button has been introduced. This contains the content details page wherein the users will be able to restart an episode, browse more episodes, and also read the video description. Another change introduced is the elimination of the swipe-down feature by which one could control the video language, captions, sound, and output settings. There is a speech icon through which one can easily control and find the subtitle settings.
A separate set of options for audio range and language is seen in the middle between the caption settings and the picture-in-picture prompt. Not just this, tvOS 15 brings support for Spatial Audio for the first time and SharePlay using FaceTime and supported video with iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS Monterrey.
To see these controls you just have to press the TV button on the Siri Remote or Apple TV Remote. This will activate the Control Center. The tvOS beta can be downloaded by the users and the final version will be launched this fall.
