tvOS 15.4 and HomePod 15.4 updates now available
Apple has released new tvOS 15.4 and HomePod 15.4 updates today for the Apple TV, original HomePod and HomePod mini, bringing support for captive Wi-Fi networks, an “Up Next” queue and a new volume button in the Apple TV video player, and more.
The two new updates are relatively minor compared to iOS 15.4, iPadOS 15.4 and macOS Monterey which are also releasing today, bringing with them Universal Control, 37 new emoji characters, a new feature that makes it possible for users to unlock their iPhone while wearing a face mask without having to authenticate with an Apple Watch, and more.
Support for captive Wi-Fi networks allows an iPhone or iPad can be used to connect an Apple TV to networks that require additional sign-in steps, like hotels or offices where an Apple TV is used for presentation purposes.
HomePod 15.4 brings Dutch voice recognition for Siri in preparation for the launch of HomePod mini in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Switzerland later this month.
