Game On! Apple TV gets Game Controllers – The Mac Observer – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

If you plan on getting into multiplayer games with the new Apple TV you just ordered, or aren’t into using the included remote as a game controller, Apple has an accessory for you: the SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Gaming Controller. It’s available as an add-on option when you buy your Apple TV, and it’s a lot cheaper than buying a second Apple Siri Remote.

Apple offers game controllers as accessories for new Apple TV

The Nimbus looks like a typical game controller with the usual assortment of buttons and a D-pad. It connects to your Apple TV, iPhone, or iPad via Bluetooth and sports a rechargeable battery rated to get you through 40 hours worth of gaming, and recharges via Lightning connecter. It’s priced at US$49.95.

If you’re worried about accidentally breaking the Siri-enabled Apple Remote that ships with your Apple TV, the Nimbus may be a smart investment. Replacing your Apple TV Siri Remote will set you back a hefty $79. Apple also sells a $12 Apple TV Siri Remote wrist lanyard that can help keep yours from flying across the room.

Apple sells the Siri Remote so you can replace the one that shipped with your Apple TV. Only one remote can be paired with your Apple TV, so buying extras means they’ll just sit around in a drawer until your original gets lost or broken.

Guitar Hero fans are getting some love, too. Apple is also offering a Guitar Hero guitar as an Apple TV accessory for $99.95. Apple said the game is coming to Apple TV, so expect to see that appear around October 30th when the first pre-orders are being delivered.

It’s not game over for Apple TV — yet – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

Every day. That’s how often I use an Apple TV. I have three at home, and one of them always comes with me on vacations. As I type this, my TV is displaying one of those amazing Aerial screen savers (of the Great Wall of China, by the way). I use Apple TV all of the time; that’s how I know it needs to get better.

Apple TV is an interesting product in Apple’s line-up. For much of its lifespan, it was considered a “hobby.” That’s Apple CEO Tim’s Cook’s word. Though Apple execs never marketed the device as strongly as they do iPhones and Macs, personally, I was sold the moment iOS supported AirPlay for Apple TV.

Sure, every major platform ecosystem now has the capability to stream images and video to another device hooked up to a TV, but the ability to do so on the Apple TV debuted almost seven years ago. For me, AirPlay has always the best way to easily display movies and photos on an HDTV, and it was the only way to get iTunes content onto a TV.

The integration with other Apple products through AirPlay has been an important feature check for those in the Apple ecosystem. Whenever I considered the alternatives, — everything from Google Chromecast to Roku and the Amazon Fire Stick — the fact that I stored my content in iTunes and the convenience of AirPlay gave Apple TV the edge.

Software updates, yes. But…

As of now, the Apple TV hardware hasn’t been updated in 520-plus days and counting. The current model arrived in October 2015. Usually, I’m not concerned about the length of time between updates. Apple has a solid history of supporting its hardware lines with consistent software updates. Case in point: An update for Apple TV arrived on Monday, eliminating the “scrolling through long lists” issue I would have complained about.

So it’s not as if Apple has abandoned its hobby, like so many Android devices that won’t see any updates long before their usefulness is over. Despite a dearth of hardware updates, new features, security updates, and bug fixes continue to trickle in for Apple TV.

But there are some things software can’t fix, and Apple under Cook seems to have but one priority when it comes to regular hardware updates — the lucrative iPhone line. Given the revenue the iPhone brings in, this makes sense.

But when you consider other products like the Mac Pro — which hasn’t been updated now in three years — and the Mac mini, the question becomes: What’s going on here?

To be blunt, I’m concerned that Apple TV is a core product that is being ignored in an era of increased competition from smaller and cheaper alternatives.

The iPhone — the “corest” of Apple products — is safe from being outgunned by competition because every resource at Apple is dedicated to it. The Mac notebook and iMac lines are beholden to Intel’s processor launch schedules, but remain more or less competitive…

Apple begins warning users to sign up for their free year of Apple TV+ within the next 90 days or it’ll be too late – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

If you bought a new Apple device recently but it slipped your mind to redeem a free year of Apple TV+, you must now do so in the next 90 days or it’ll be too late.

9to5Mac spotted Apple’s push notification warning those who purchased a new eligible Apple device recently but forgot to redeem their free offer to do so in the next 90 days.

If you bought a new iPhone, a Mac notebook, an iPad or other eligible device in late 2019, but forgot to activate your 12-month trial, then this message should concern you. Eligible devices include any iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch or Mac purchased after September 10, 2019.

From the article:

If the product was bought before November 1, the 3-month window starts from that date. This includes people who bought an iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro on day one, for example. In that case, the redemption period expires at the end of this month, January 31. That means Apple is sending out these reminder alerts with about two weeks to go.

Apple TV+ debuted on November 1, 2019, but this is the first time the Cupertino company has publicly acknowledged when the 12-month free trial offer would come to an end.

TUTORIAL: How to redeem your free Apple TV+ offer

The notification, titled “Expiring Soon: Your Free Year of Apple TV+”, cautions the user that their recent Apple device purchase makes them eligible for twelve months of free service. It reminds the user to redeem the offer within 90 days of activating their new device.

9to5Mac commented on reports that some people are getting offered the free year even though they haven’t bought a new Apple product recently.

This is leading to some confusion on social media about whether the emails and alerts are legitimate, or some kind of scam. As far as we can tell, all reports of this nature are accounting errors on Apple’s side, not anything malicious. If you see the offer in the Apple TV app, then go ahead and take advantage of it if you can.

Apple TV+ is also available without an Apple device purchase in exchange for $5 per month after a 1-week free trial. Regardless of whether you take advantage of the 12-month offer or 1-week trial, don’t forget to cancel your subscription at least 24 hours before the trial expires to avoid unwanted charges stemming from the auto-renewing subscription.

Cancelling the subscription immediately cancels your free trial.

How to close apps on your Apple TV, so nothing is slowing your system down in the background – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

How to close apps on an Apple TV in 4 simple steps – Business Insider

2020-02-10T21:11:00Z

Hadrian/Shutterstock

  • To close apps on your Apple TV, you’ll need to open the app switcher, which can be done with just a click.
  • You can only close apps on the Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD, as other Apple TV models don’t run apps in the same way.
  • You’ll also need to be using a Siri or Apple TV remote, as you need to use the touchpad to close apps.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

When you switch from one app to another on newer Apple TV models, the first app doesn’t close. It’ll instead run in the background, so it can quickly open if you switch back to it.

This can be an issue if you switch between apps often. If one app freezes, it can slow down your entire Apple TV system. In this case, you’ll need to close it.

Note, however, that this is only applicable to the Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD models. On earlier Apple TV models, when you exit an app, it closes automatically. 

Here’s how to close apps on an Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD.

Check out the products mentioned in this article:

Apple TV 4K (From $179.99 at Best Buy)

How to close apps on your Apple TV

To properly close apps, you’ll need to be using the Siri Remote (also called the Apple TV Remote in some locations). It’s black, and has a smooth touchpad at the top.

1. Return to your Apple TV’s homescreen.

2. Double-click the Home button on your Apple TV remote. It’s the button with a picture of a television screen on it. This will pull up all the apps that are currently open, arranged as separate windows.

3. Scroll with the touchpad until you find and select the app you want to close.

Ryan Ariano/Business Insider

4. Swipe up on the trackpad on your remote. This closes the app.

You can keep scrolling through and closing your open apps until you’ve closed as many as you want. Once you’ve closed all your open apps, the only item left will be the Apple TV homescreen.

Ryan Ariano/Business Insider

Click once on the center of the trackpad, and you’ll return to the Apple TV homescreen.

Apple TV Plus: Everything to know about Apple’s streaming service – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

Apple TV Plus launched Nov. 1, offering a yearlong free trial to people who purchased Apple gadgets. 

Sarah Tew/CNET

Apple TV Plus is Apple‘s subscription video streaming service featuring original TV shows and movies. It costs $5 a month, but many people can unlock it free for as long as a year — and the first wave of people who signed up for that promotion are getting their trial periods extended three months. With the first expirations of those free trials approaching on Nov. 1, Apple’s emailed free-trial subscribers that their free Apple TV Plus subscriptions have been extended until Feb. 1. 

“We’re giving you extra time to discover the latest Apple Originals and catch up on shows returning for a second season,” Apple TV Plus said in emails to trial members. “You don’t have to do anything — just keep watching for free until February 2021. 

Apple is extending the free trials of its earliest subscribers until Feb. 1.

With a reported budget of $6 billion to rope in some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Apple TV Plus was the first to the battle lines in the so-called streaming wars, a period of months when media giants and tech titans released a raft of new streaming services to take on Netflix. These battles — pitting rookies like Apple TV Plus, HBO MaxDisney Plus and NBCUniversal’s Peacock against heavyweights like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video — have spurred huge corporations to pour billions of dollars into their ambition to shape the future of television. 

Of its originals, Apple TV Plus seemed to stake the most on The Morning Show, its marquee drama starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, with an eye-popping $300 million reported budget. Apple TV Plus launched with just nine total programs, but since then it has expanded to more than 40 shows and movies. 

Some of the most popular additions include Defending Jacob, a thriller miniseries starring Chris Evans about a family dealing with the accusation that their 14-year-old son is a murderer; Ted Lasso, a fish-out-of-water workplace comedy about a college football coach from Kansas hired to coach Premier League soccer in England, based on a character spun off of an NBC Sports ad campaign (really); The Banker, a movie about African American entrepreneurs who take on racist real estate practices in the 1960s, starring Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson; Mythic Quest, a comedy series about a dysfunctional video-game studio; and Little America, an anthology series telling stories of immigrants in America.

But unlike rivals Netflix and Disney Plus, Apple TV Plus doesn’t have a big back catalog of things to watch. It focused on new, original content, even if that meant having much less programming for subscribers to choose from versus competitors. But Apple switched…

Apple TV 3 Jailbreak – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

I like apple tv3 just the way it is, the only feature I would like is to be able to use folders for my media. I have probably around 15 tb of media on my main computer and can’t put it all in itunes because I would have to scroll forever. Also, locking certain folders would be an awesome addition (ie. allow the kids to access itunes media but restrict certain folders).
