How to install the tvOS 16 public beta on your Apple TV right now



Apple originally revealed tvOS during its keynote at WWDC22 and subsequently rolled out a developer beta right after. Developer betas are great for those who want to pay $100 per year, but for the rest of us, we have to wait until the public beta. The wait is over, Apple tvOS 16 public betas just went live and we’re here to help. Follow the how-to guide below to get started.

  1. Make sure you have an Apple TV 4K (2017 or 2021), Apple TV HD model since tvOS 16 requires it
  2. Visit and sign up for Apple’s beta program
  3. Once signed in, Select the tvOS tab
  4. On your Apple TV, navigate to the Settings app, then to System, then to Software Update
  5. Select the Get Beta Updates button
  6. Select the Update Software button, if the iPadOS 16 Public Beta update does not automatically appear
  7. Your Apple TV will begin to download the update, after it has completed, your Apple TV will ask you to Install it, select Install
  8. This will initiate a restart of your Apple TV and install tvOS 16 Public Beta.
  9. Enjoy!
