Apple TVs are set by default to download and install software updates automatically. However, if you disabled automatic updates or don’t want to wait a couple of days until it’s done you can perform it manually:

  • Use the Apple TV remote to open Settings -> System -> Software Updates.
  • Tap Download and Install.
  • Be patient until tvOS 15.2 is downloaded, prepared and installed.

Tip: During the process Apple TV will restart. This is when the No Signal error might be displayed in your smart TV screen. Don’t touch anything. The message will go away by itself once the Apple TV media set finishes the reboot procedure!
