The catch, obviously, is that you'll need an Atmos-equipped sound system to take advantage of the up-and-coming audio format. With a tap of the Apple TV remote, users will be able to find out the locations of specific Aerial screensavers.
Apple TV also announced a partnership with Charter Spectrum to bring live programming to the TV app in the United States later this year. Much like it did with 4K and HDR content past year, supported content will be upgraded for free if you already own it. Apple today announced that Charter Communications, the second-largest cable operator in the USA, will begin offering Apple TV 4K to their customers. No huge changes mark the latest version of tvOS, but Apple did include support for Dolby Atmos surround sound, a feature that many pointed out as a missed opportunity in the Apple TV 4K.
Also with tvOS 12 will be new aerial screensavers from footage shot by astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

According to the Cupertino computing giant, more TV providers over time are set to be added to Apple TV over time. Charter joins AT&T's DirecTV Now in the US, CANAL+ in France and Salt in Switzerland, which have begun offering their customers Apple TV 4K with their services. Single sign-on for Apple TV and iOS has allowed users to sign in once to get access to all the video apps available through their cable subscription. Now, a new "Zero Sign-On" feature will automatically detect subscriptions without the need to actually type in your account information. As long as a viewer is connected to a cable provider's broadband network, the Apple TV will automatically recognize his or her credentials, and apply them instantly.
Dolby Atmos support is coming to Apple TV 4K later this year with the release of tvOS 12. Users can also swipe to see a different Aerial.
