An easy to install software package that helps you update the firmware of your Apple TV device to the latest officially released version.
The Apple TV devices offer you the possibility to access a wide collection of video content at HD quality, such as TV shows, movies, live transmissions, and so on. You can also use the device to listen to music or to browse through photo collections.
However, to make sure that you have access to everything your Apple TV device has to offer, you must patch its firmware periodically, using the latest Apple released updater packages. Each new patch includes either stability and performance improvements, or new features, so updating the firmware to the latest version as soon as possible is highly advisable.
Manually download the latest Apple TV firmware
Usually, you can download and install the latest Apple TV firmware through the device: in the Settings menu, select the General panel, and check the Update Software option. If there are any available downloads, Apple TV saves them locally, and then starts installing the new patch (note that you must not disconnect the Apple TV device during this process).
However, if you want to bypass this channel, you can manually download the firmware patch from the Apple support page, regardless of your Apple TV model. This is very useful if you have a poor internet connection and you want to apply the same patch to multiple devices.
Effortlessly update or restore the Apple TV firmware
To get started you must connect the Apple TV device to your Mac via USB, launch iTunes, and identify the device model. The next step is to manually download the appropriate firmware package and then proceed to update or restore the firmware for the connected device, via iTunes.
To conclude, if you need to troubleshoot your Apple TV device, or if you want to simply apply the latest firmware update without making use of the over-the-air feature, you can manually download the software package and install them via USB.
