Apple Releases iOS 10.2 and Its Companion TV App
Apple is making good on its promise of giving you a unified video streaming experience. The company has released iOS 10.2 and tvOS 10.1, both of which include the company's centerpiece TV app. So long as a given service supports the feature, you no longer have to jump into and out of apps to catch up on your viewing -- you can resume your favorite show or check out recommendations from a single place. Netflix isn't included in TV at the moment, alas, but this and the recently launched single sign-on should save you a lot of hassle.
Accordingly, Siri is more TV-savvy. You can ask it to continue watching a show on any device. On Apple TV, you can also tell it to watch live news and sports, including a glimpse of what's live at any given moment. And if you're not sure what to watch, Siri can offer recommendations.
The iOS update isn't just a one-trick pony, of course. You'll see improved music controls with quicker access to your queue and shuffling, better stabilization and improved frame rates for Live Photos, a dedicated News app section for saved articles and notifications for smart home devices like smoke detectors and door sensors.
Combine these with general fixes (there's a significant upgrade to Bluetooth performance, for example) and you'll definitely want to upgrade -- if just to see Apple fulfill one of its big end-of-year promises.
