Apple TV firmware 6.1 (11D169b) released, here’s what's new

Apple TV

Apple has released iOS 7.1 today for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod devices. The Apple TV has also released a software update, bringing iOS 6.1 to the mobile streaming device. The update brings the ability to hide channels among other improvements

During the past year, Apple has added scores of channels to the roster of its set-top box – seen by many as a response to release of the Google Chromecast. The search giant’s super cheap HDMI dongle has sold in large numbers, and while, for a long time, it seemed as though Apple would go down the route of releasing a connected TV, the renewed focus on Apple TV suggests otherwise.

After updating, hold down the center button on your Apple TV remote, and press the Play button, which will remove said app from the main menu. Alternatively, you can navigate through the Settings app, select the Main Menu option, and sort out your apps and services from there.

It’s all well and good that Apple has brought forth the likes of the Red Bull TV Channel and the WWE Network, but unless you’ve a vested interest in watching the content that these services provide, then their icons might start to become a little bit of a nuisance.

Additionally the update also brings several bug fixes and performance enhancements with this Apple TV update, although it doesn’t appear that the fruit company has packed much else into this release.
