Apple will fix a control problem with the upcoming version of the apple tv operating system, the user has been planning for years: the externally storing input of passwords on the multimediabox. Currently you can either carry out this very slowly via the apple remote or use an iphone as a keyboard – alternatively, the use of a bluetooth keyboard is possible. Not planned is the use of touch id and face id on a coupled iphone.

Finally, log in

Exactly that should be implemented with tvos 15 now. Developers can be the so-called "sign in with apple device"-use function, for which the group has made an extension of its authentication services for the multimediabox. If it is implemented, when logging in appears "sign up with apple gerat"-logo. A iphone automatically receives a notification. Axely authenticated on the device by means of a fingerprint (touch id) or face scan (face id) – the necessary password comes from the keybound (for example, it must be deposited on the iphone before).

According to apple, the new login possibility is also available for ipads with face id or touch id. Unfortunately, there is no automatism – developers must explicitly tang "sign in with apple device" to support in your tvos programs. Apple describes the exact procedure in a video, which was published to the developer conference wwdc in the beginning of the month.

Apple tv 4k 2021: not only the processor a12 is new

After almost four years, apple has finally updated his multimediabox apple tv on tuesday. Highlights are an accelerated soc including faster gpu cores as well as a superpendent remote control, the new siri remote. However, a lot has happened internally.

For this purpose, apple continues to donate the device designated as apple tv 4k for the first time a hdmi-2.1-fahal connection. So far, the box dominated only hdmi 2.0a. With the new port 4k-hdr video with 60 fps can be output. Code in tvos 14.5, however, suggests that even 120 hertz could be possible – apple has not yet been uplowered. In the beta of the operating system, there are also evidence of the support of the earc technology for improved audio transmission. In terms of wlan there is an upgrade to 802.11ax (wifi 6) including mimo antenna array. Wifi 6 is now ready in many new apple advisers and allows with matching routers more speed, higher ranges and less latency.

The chip is actually too old

Furthermore, the manufacturer integrates for the first time the new mesh crosslinking technology thread at apple tv – after the first use in the homepod mini. This is especially useful for homekit applications. The soc installed by apple in the new multimediabox, however, can be considered as a suspension. It is the a12 bionic processor, which celebrated its debut for the first time in the iphone xs, xs max and xr in 2018, 2019 he then came in changed variants in ipad air, ipad mini and finally 2020 in the ipad.

Big sur officially does not use how generally accepted, macos 10.16, but is officially designated by the manufacturer as macos 11. Reason for the comprehensive design cheers that apple has made, the group itself.

That was it with mac os x – actually

So that the mac-os x-ara, which started almost 20 years ago, is actually officially finished. However, if you look at a look at the beta of probably the new mac operating system appearing in october, will find that macos 11 has not arrived anywhere.
