Another September, another Apple TV update. If you've been running the developer or public beta version of tvOS 14, you might be wondering how you can update to the official version of the software now that it's been released. Fortunately, it's a relatively simple process that just requires you to delete the beta profile from your Apple TV.

Here's how to update from the tvOS beta release to the official public version.

After your Apple TV has restarted, you can just follow the standard procedures for installing the Apple TV update.

If this beta process has gotten you thinking about an Apple TV upgrade (moving from HD to 4K, perhaps), then you have a decision to make: 32GB or 64GB? Well, unless you download a lot of apps and games, the 32GB Apple TV 4K is probably the best Apple TV for the job, thanks to it's lower cost versus the higher-capacity model, especially with most entertainment relying on streaming over downloads.
