Apple has released Apple TV 2.0.1 Update.
The update offers no details on either Apple’s Website or the Apple TV itself, so we are assuming it to be a minor update with bug fix(es).
Apple TV 2.0.1 Update can be obtained by using Apple TV’s Settings>General>Update Software command. Users will then see a “Software updating” message and after a few minutes (3 minutes via fast cable modem in our case) the user will be presented the choice “Update now” or “Update later.”
Choosing “Update now” leads to a restart, then approximately four Apple logo flashes, an Apple logo with a progress bar, then about 5 more logo flashes and finally the short Apple TV intro movie.
Users who navigate to Settings>General>About will see their Apple TV software has been upgraded to 2.0.1.
Users will find the addition of “Genres” under “My Movies” in 2.0.1 which is definitely helpful in organizing and finding movies within large movie collections. The UI also seems — you know it — snappier. Nothing else is currently known about this update. We do count 176 HD movies now available which may be a bit more than the last time we checked earlier this week, but that may be unrelated to the 2.0.1. update.
