Apple is preparing a major update of the operating system tvOS, which will support user accounts and the function of “picture in picture”. About it reports The Verifier with reference to own sources.
As told the interlocutor of the edition, 2017 at WWDC, Apple will make several important announcements, including a new generation of television platforms tvOS 11. The main innovation in the past will support accounts on Apple TV 4.
“Support for multiple users allows each owner to use their own Apple account ID on your TV using your iOS device (iPhone, iPod touch, iPad) to create a unique profile. After synchronization, each user account will be able to listen to music via the Apple Music, view photos and videos in iCloud to access your downloaded content on iTunes and, of course, use a native application for Apple TV”.
Work on the account system reportedly is in the active phase, although there is no certainty that it will be implemented in the first major update for Apple TV.
Another important novelty in the new version tvOS should be a function of “picture in picture”.
“When watching television or short videos the user can minimize the window in one of the corners of the screen and run another application. However, he will hear the sound of the coiled roller.”
TvOS 11 presentation is expected at WWDC 2015, which will take place on 5 June.
