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
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.
