Just like iOS and macOS, Apple also releases a beta version of tvOS for developers to test. However, installing these updates for smart TVs is a bit complicated compared to others.

First of all, let’s say that you will not back up your Apple TV like other operating systems. Therefore, you can install the update in only two ways. The first of these is the wireless connection, which only updates the system, and the other is via USB-C, which returns the device to factory settings.
