Today Apple just announced a major update to the Apple TV with a tvOS update that adds a new home screen and multi-user support, with personalized recommendations for each user profile. No specific date was announced, but they did said it would be this fall. Apple also announced they are adding support for the PS4 controller and Xbox One S controller on the Apple TV.

Here’s a look at the new personalized profile menus.

You will also be able to access Apple Music in a user interface very similar to the Amazon Echo Show. As the music plays you will be able to see the words of the screen on the TV just like you can with Amazon’s Echo Show.

Apple also announced that they are rolling out new screensavers from under the sea to the Apple TV.

Apple also announced that Ronald Moore is creating a show for Apple TV+ called “For All Mankind.” Ronald Moore is best know as the Executive Producer behind Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek. This new show looks at what would have happened if the Soviet Union made it to the moon first and how NASA would respond.
