New updates follow the reveal of new features for iOS 14, iPadOS 14 and WatchOS 7. As with previous major updates, Apple says the new TVOS will be available this fall.

With the new update, Apple is strengthening Apple TV as competition between media broadcasters and smart TVs increases, with Roku and Amazon representing the majority of the market with their respective platforms, Roku and Fire TV.

Google, which has its own rival smart TV software known as Android TV, is rumored to be preparing a $ 80 dongle That will allow you not only to watch 4K HDR videos on TVs through apps and Chromecast, but also to play games through its Stadia video game streaming service.
