Apple TV 4K (2nd generation) brings the best of TV together with access to your favorite Apple services. Its 4K High Frame Rate HDR, with Dolby Atmos sound capabilities, delivers a truly cinematic experience to your screen — whether you’re watching sports or a film. You can enjoy content from Apple TV+, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and Disney+, as well as live channels from Hulu, YouTube TV, and Sling TV.

Benjamin Mayo for 9to5Mac:

The new aerials feature beautiful shots of Patagonia, Yosemite National Park and the Grand Canyon. There are 4, 7 and 5 videos of each location, respectively. This is a big jump up from the zero new additions in tvOS 14 last year.

The new screensavers might not appear immediately on your Apple TV. The Aerials screensavers system only checks for updates periodically, and randomly downloads clips from the available rotation.

The best way to try and see the new videos is to go into Settings -> General -> Screensaver and set it to Download New Videos Daily, after updating your Apple TV to tvOS 15 of course. This enables your Apple TV to refresh the set of downloaded videos as quickly as possible.

MacDailyNews Note: You can watch them all of the Apple TV Aerial screensavers, streaming directly from Apple’s servers, via Mayo’s blog here.

    1. When you see the Aerial screensaver, just lightly tap the touchpad on your Apple TV remote. You will then see the location of that aerial view display on the bottom left of your screen.
