Apple Releases tvOS 16.4.1
It would seem likely that the just-released tvOS 16.4.1 would address the recent security vulnerabilities in other Apple operating systems (see “iOS 16.4.1, iPadOS 16.4.1, and macOS 13.3.1 Address Serious Security Vulnerabilities, Fix Bugs,” 7 April 2023). However, the release notes merely claim unspecified “performance and stability improvements,” and the Apple Security Updates page says, “This update has no published CVE entries.” So, fixes? Unless you’re experiencing a problem with your Apple TV that an update could conceivably resolve, don’t bother with a manual installation and let the update install on its own.
Also HomePod Software 16.4.1. Both devices often don’t auto-install updates for weeks, and when they do it’s often at inconvenient times. So this time I did them manually. Nothing to report. Yet.
Huh! I’m not seeing on that on the HomePod Software Updates page or on my HomePods.
And of course I’ve forgotten exactly how I did it manually . . . I’ve had to relearn the process every time so far.
And nothing to report so far, either.
To install HomePod updates:
And you should be good to go.
And of course, now my three HomePods have updated to 16.4.1 too, though Apple still hasn’t acknowledged the update on its HomePod Software Updates page.
