Apple releases 5.1.1 build 10A831 update for Apple TV

Apple has released the 5.1.1 build 10A831 software update for the Apple TV alongside the release of iTunes 11. The Apple TV update isn't as extravagant as the iTunes update, but brings support for iTunes Up Next and iTunes match along with several bug fixes and performance improvements.

The update follows the 5.1 update which was released in September with the ability to save multiple iTunes account and quickly switch between them, Shared Photo Streams and AirPlay. It isn't common for Apple to release consecutive updates so quickly, but it probably was a necessity with the new iTunes update.

The update is available for the Apple TV (2nd Gen) and Apple TV (3rd Gen) and can be downloaded by heading over to Settings > General > Update Software. You can also download the firmware files through the following links and manually apply the update using iTunes
 The Apple TV 5.1.1 build 10A831 update has the following new features and improvements
  • iTunes Up Next

  • Stability and performance
    Includes performance and stability improvements with the iTunes Store, AirPlay, Netflix, iTunes Match, and wired Ethernet connections.

We recommend installing the update to get the best experience out of your device.
