Apple Rolls Out 6.1.1 Update for 2nd, 3rd Gen Apple TV

Apple released Apple TV Update 6.1.1 for the second and third generation Apple TV on Tuesday along side iOS 7.1.1 for the iPhone and iPad. So far, there aren't any details available about what's included in the update, but it seems likely that it's intended to keep the Apple TV software in step with the new iOS 7.1.1 update.

Apple TV auto-checks for updates on a weekly schedule, so you don't have to do anything other than wait for it to show up. If you want to install the update right away, however, here's what to do:

  • Choose Settings on your Apple TV
  • Select General
  • Scroll down to Software Updates
  • Choose Update Software

Be sure to leave your Apple TV plugged in and on during the update process to avoid any problems.

Apple TV Update 6.1.1 is free for all second and third generation Apple TV owners.
