4 New Apple TV 3 Features

Since the Apple TV 3 jailbreak is so long in coming, we thought we introduce you to some of the newest and greatest features that have been added to your digital media receiver.

Four new features have been added thanks to Apple’s recently released update. In case your device hasn’t been automatically upgraded, you can manually add the update by following the pattern Settings > General > Update Software.

Once your software has been updated, it will become much easier to control and command your device. Rearranging icons was not possible until now, so the new update gives users the possibility to move the Apple TV icons around their home screen according to their wishes.

The previously mentioned feature is not the most important one, however. Apple seems to have paid attention to people’s preferences, so users can finally share IDs. In fact, it is now possible to juggle with multiple IDs while watching movies on the same Apple TV device. This feature was created particularly for families because it gives users the possibility to access the purchase history of an ID or charge an order on a different account with just a few clicks.

Moreover, the introduction of showtimes enables those who have bought Apple TV 3 to watch the schedule of the movies that are being displayed in local theaters directly on their digital media receivers. Thanks to this feature, buyers can also view trailers before purchasing movies online.

Sharing photos is not new to Apple TV customers. As a matter of fact, the option has become common on many similar devices. However, the new software update makes it possible for users to share photo streams, that is, to access the same shared albums they can view on an iOS or an OS X device with the help of Apple TV 3.
Yet, these are just as few of the features you can benefit of after you purchase Apple TV 3. The upcoming iOS jailbreak will pave the way for many more useful options.


  1. So when will it be coming then? I gather we will be waiting for a long time.

  2. Will the jailbreak that is going to be released soon work on the new version of iOS that has these features? As per your site,, it is coming in few days...

    1. The software will be compatible on the new iOS version using a software patch Update.
      Is something similar to iPhone factory unlock using IMEI Hack.

    2. Thanks John, that's great news. But i will wait for the jailbreak before upgrading the OS on my apple tv...

    3. Hi John

      Can you confirm that you are a beta tester?
      Sorry about the question, but we're still a few who is a bit suspicious about this "break through".

  3. Just a short Update
    I am a contributor and offered my ATV in beta testing
    I do not ask anyone to believe or have any expectations at all

    People are asking about video proofs. As far as i know all videos available are scams.
    Technicians purpose is to find the gaps in the operating system and not to upload videos on social networks.
    Why is taking so long?
    People working on the software are not some 19 years old kids playing hackers.
    They are normal people with a regular life and they are doing this in their free time.
    Santa will bring good news for the patient ones, the software is in final stage and as far as i know it will be 100 % free.

    1. I just purchased and brought home my ATV3 Dec 10, 2012. It already asked me to do an update on it. Does anyone know if I would update it now would I still be able to jailbreak my ATV3 when the jailbreak comes out with the knew update?
      Any help would be greatly appreciated

    2. it doesnt matter , go ahead and update it. u can still break it later

  4. Any chance of getting it to output a clean 1080p24 signal without pulldown judder?! please please please ;-)
