Apple is launching the next-gen version of tvOS today. The launch of tvOS 13 today is important, considering the upcoming launch of Apple’s streaming service Apple TV+.

tvOS13 introduces support for multi-user, which means you will now be able to get your personalised feed based on your own watching history. And like Netflix, you will be able to create user accounts for everyone else on your home. Users will be able to quickly switch to different accounts via the newly designed Control Centre.

Apple is also introducing an improved design for tvOS that shows larger previews for new shoes and movies.  It’s also getting Apple Music integration, allowing users to listen to music on their TV and even look at lyrics while listening to songs.

And lastly, tvOS 13 introduces support for Xbox One and PlayStation controllers, allowing you to browse tvOS with your existing console controllers. You will also be able to play Apple Arcade games using the controller which is pretty great.
