In this article, Melissa Holt will cover a few special features you can take advantage of using your Apple TV remote—jumping ahead by chapter, for example, or turning closed captioning on right from within a movie. Also, she'll go over how to set up a third-party remote to control your Apple TV. There's so much info in here, your brain may explode. (TMO is not responsible for brain explosions.)
Apple may be preparing a March event to introduce Apple TV-related developer tools as a prelude to a later launch of the much-rumored Apple "iTV" television hardware, according to a new note from Jeffries analyst Peter Misek.
Apple has hired an OLED TV expert from LG, according to a report from the OLED Association. The news is fueling fresh speculation about Apple's intentions to enter the TV market.
The first beta build of iOS 6.1.1, released by Apple to developers Wednesday, surprisingly does not patch any of the exploits in iOS 6.1 that are required for the evasi0n jailbreak, according to a member of the jailbreak’s development team, although evasi0n users are still discouraged from updating until the team has a chance to see the final 6.1.1 build.
As expected, the iOS 6.1 jailbreak, codenamed "evasi0n," has been released. Developer team "evad3rs" updated the jailbreak's website this afternoon with links to the tool for Mac, Windows, and Linux.
The much-anticipated iOS 6.1 jailbreak is set for release today (Monday), according to a tweet from a member of the development team. The jailbreak will support every iDevice that can run iOS 6.1 with the lone exception of the third-generation Apple TV.
Apple is reportedly in talks with Time Warner to offer the company's HBO GO service on the Apple TV. HBO GO allows current HBO subscribers to view hundreds of hours of premium content on demand.
The iOS 6.1 jailbreak, now called "evasi0n," is almost ready and the development team has set up a website to keep the public informed of its progress. Every iOS 6.1 compatible device will be supported except the third-gen Apple TV.
The mysterious "AppleTV3,2" firmware released Monday belongs to a new version of the Apple TV. FCC documents and firmware code show that the upcoming device will sport a faster A5X processor and a new Broadcom wireless chip. The device will also be about 4 millimeters smaller on length and width.
In addition to releasing iOS 6.1, Apple has also updated the second- and third-generation Apple TV to version 5.2, adding Bluetooth keyboard support, Airplay enhancements, and new features such as "Up Next."
