tvOS 16.3 not available on your Apple TV 4K, 4K (2nd gen.) or HD? You’ve update iPhone to iOS 16.3, Mac to macOS 13.2, Apple Watch to watchOS 9.3, but 16.3 on ATV is not showing up? You’re not alone! Apple has pulled it!
tvOS 16.3 Not Showing Up?
The missing update has been reported by Denise:
“Is there a problem? I’m not seeing this update today, jan 24. ios, macos and watchos updated properly!”
Similar to HomePod 16.3 update, Apple has decided to postpone the release of tvOS 16.3!
It’s unsure if this was caused by a last minute bug discovered during the Release Candidate version, or if the Cupertino-tech giant wants to keep all spotlights on the new MacBook Pros due today!
tvOS 16.3 Release Date: January 25
tvOS 16.3 and HomePod 16.3 briefly showed up on Apple’s Developer page before they’ve been pulled, along with the upcoming Release Date!
How To Fix tvOS 16.3 Not Available
If you can’t wait two more days to get the public version of the new update, there is a way to download tvOS 16.3 right now!
You can install the tvOS 16.3 RC public beta on any compatible Apple TV!
However, in case of an existing bug that caused this delay you will get it too:
- 1. Turn On Apple TV on open Settings.
- 2. Go for System -> Software Updates.
- 3. Open Get Beta Updates and confirm your selection.
- 4. Go for Download and Install when the 16.3 (20K650) update shows up on your Apple TV.
Tip: After the installation completes you should return to the Get Beta Updates menu and disable this option. This will allow you to get back to the official update sequence when the next software update is released.
