What’s New with tvOS 18

The largest update to tvOS is the inclusion of InSight, which can provide real-time about the Apple TV+ programs you’re watching, including music and actors featured. You can also get this information from your iPhone and it will display on the Apple TV.

The new update to tvOS is also expanding Enhanced Dialogue, which can help bring clarity to dialogue in movies thanks to machine learning and computational audio. This feature will arrive to AirPods, HomePod speakers and built-in TV or HDMI speakers.

New improvements are also arriving to subtitles, as they will now appear automatically during choice scenes during a show or movie.

There is also now support for 21:9 resolution for projectors, as well as new screensavers. These new screensavers include one featuring Snoopy, who has been a staple of Apple TV+.
