Rather, you’ll need to scrub to where you were. It’s not a bargain breaker, however it’s not practical. Similarly, you could hear podcasts in the background, yet you can not control playback. When you stop your podcast, you can not begin it again.
As with current small iOS and also OS X updates, this tvOS update could be taken into consideration as an intermediate update prior to Apple presents new features in tvOS 9.2. The next version should bring Bluetooth keyboard support for those troublesome passwords, the capacity to produce app folders on the home screen as well as a new app switching interface.
Slowly yet surely, Apple is dealing with all the imperfections of its brand-new TELEVISION platform. Several developers would love to read much more iOS APIs on the Apple TV. So it’s likewise going to interest see whether the business is going to port much more iOS includes to tvOS in the next significant revision.
