Apple updates Apple TV to iOS 5.1.1 (software 5.0.1)

Apple has pushed out Apple TV software version 5.0.2 (4250), still listed as iOS 5.1.1, but now with build number 9B830. The update is for both the 2010 Apple TV (720p) and 2012 Apple TV (1080p). Like with the last update, no new features are shown, and no new services seem to have been added, so this could just be another bug fix and performance enhancement release.

To update your Apple TV:

  1. Click on Settings at the top right
  2. Click on General
  3. Scroll down and click on Update Software
