Developing for tvOS
Your tvOS apps can deliver amazing experiences with stunning picture quality through 4K resolution, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+ — and immersive sound through Dolby Atmos. The A15 Bionic chip in Apple TV 4K includes a 5-core CPU with 2 performance and 3 efficiency cores and a 5-core GPU, to further enhance the realism and capabilities of your apps and games.
What’s new in tvOS 16
With cross-device connectivity, you can integrate your tvOS app with your iOS, iPadOS, or watchOS app to unlock new experiences on Apple TV. Multiuser support makes it easier for people to enjoy your tvOS app with improved system integration for user profiles. With credentials stored in a shared keychain, users won’t need to sign in and choose their profile every time they launch your app. Create custom button styles and effects that accent your design, take advantage of standard gestures, such as Tap and Touch, and add consistency to interactions with the Focus APIs. And customize your app’s interface and provide even more functionality with SwiftUI.
