Are you looking for Apple’s Latest tvOS Version History? Well, you came to the right place!

Before we get started, let’s have a quick intro about tvOS!

tvOS is an operating system developed by Apple Inc. for the 2nd generation and later Apple TV digital media player. It was formerly known as Apple TV Software from 2010 to 2014. The Apple TV Software for the 2nd and 3rd generation Apple TV has several built-in applications but does not support third-party applications.

At Apple’s September event held on 9th September 2015, Apple announced the 4th generation Apple TV, with support for third-party applications. Apple changed the name of the Apple TV operating system to tvOS, adopting the camelcase nomenclature that they were using for their other operating systems, iOS and watchOS.

Apple’s tvOS is based on the iOS operating system and has many similar frameworks, technologies, and concepts.
