Your Apple TV can be connected to a Wi-Fi network right out of the box and, for the most part, it just works. If you have custom network settings, however, or your experiencing slow streaming performance — particularly with iTunes purchases — changing the DNS settings can sometimes help alleviate the problem. Here's how!
Though I have faith that Apple isn't shunting the iPad due to its less-than-measurable sales against the iPhone, it's not the only other product in the company's wheelhouse. The Apple TV in particular hasn't seen a whole lot of love in recent years, even as company CEO Tim Cook proclaimed it no longer "a hobby" product. Jason Snell makes a good argument for why the Apple Watch might be more appealing to ship before a new Apple TV.
That's right, another motion based game for the Apple TV, this time hitting the lanes and going Ten Pin Bowling! Rolecule, developer of Motion Tennis and Dance Party, is back again with one of the more fun games we've played with our iPhones in a while.
Bowling Central actually came about because the community requested it after Motion Tennis. Wii Bowling has always been a favorite, and that same essence has been captured here for the Apple TV.
With 2015 right around the corner, there's lots we could wish for. We could wish for the moon—or at the very least, a hoverboard prototype to show up at CES 2015. But as much fun as it is to wildly speculate on pie-in-the-sky ideas, we're going to travel a bit closer to Earth for our 2015 predictions. Here's what the editors of iMore actually want to see from Apple next year — unicorns and 50-inch Gene Munster-branded Apple TVs need not apply.

iTunes in the Cloud allows you to stream a lot of your purchased content right to any Apple TV in just a few button presses. This includes any tv shows, movies, or music that you purchase. That means there's no need to burn anything to a disc or AirPlay from an iOS device, as long as you've got an Apple TV.

Mobile Nations has a giant Black Friday deals guide and mega Holiday gift guide for you to check out, but there are also going to be a lot of iPhones, a lot of iPads, and a lot of Macs on a lot of lists.

Following the release of iOS 8.1.1 for iPhone and iPad, along with OS X 10.10.1, Apple has also issued an update for the Apple TV. The update introduces no apparent changes to the user experience, and most likely contains bug fixes and performance improvements.
I love listening to music, soundtracks, and other aural miscellany while puttering around my apartment. Silence might be nice in some places, but when you work and live alone, there's something soothing about having some classic rock at your back while you're doing dishes or writing up an article.
