Just 24 hours after introducing a minor update to iOS and iPadOS, Apple has released a similar revision to tvOS, bringing it to version 17.5.1.

On Monday, Apple issued a point release for iOS and iPadOS 17, making a small fix to the operating systems. It was to clear up a bug that resurfaced a user's deleted photographs within the Photos app.

One day later on Tuesday, Apple's brought out another update, bringing tvOS to the same version, 17.5.1. The new build, number 21L580, replaces tvOS 17.5, which was released on May 13.

It is unclear if the update is related to the same problem as found in iOS and iPadOS. Certainly, it maintains version parity with the mobile operating systems.

How to update to tvOS 17.5.1

  1. On an Apple TV, go to the Settings, app

  2. Select System

  3. Select Software Updates

  4. Select Update Software

    Out of curiosity, I looked at the OS version on the ATV 3 in the bedroom hooked up to an old 1080p budget TV.  OS 7.9 and is apparently up to date. How time flies.

    it still works OK, the main problem is that many apps don’t get written for it.

    Oops, I’m on 17.4. Updating now. Strange because I have it on auto update but it didn’t update by itself.
