iOS 4.2.1 for Apple TV Released

Apple just released an update for its second generation Apple TV, designed to upgrade the device’s operating system to iOS 4.2.1. To upgrade your device, simply make sure that your Apple TV is connected to the internet, and launch the update from the Settings menu. Due to heavy loads on Apple’s servers, not all Apple TVs seem to be able to see the update just yet. If your Apple TV refuses to upgrade, simply try to launch the update at a later time. Note that at this time, little is known about the additional features and/or fixes provided by the update. According to Apple’s support documents, the update addresses “an issue that causes some high-definition TVs to incorrectly display at 480p” as well as “an issue that may cause a movie or TV show to be re-downloaded.”
