The new Apple TV is still weeks away from launch, but that isn't stopping a few people from getting their hands on it... and discovering a few pleasant surprises in the process. Dom Esposito at 9to5Mac has learned that the device's improved Bluetooth support extends not just to the controller, but to audio equipment like headphones. Yes, much like on the Fire TV or Roku 3, you can watch movies late at night without waking your housemates or connecting your headphones to another device. If that's not an option, you'll still have access to a "night mode" that turns down the volume for everything but speech.
As for other tidbits? There isn't a whole lot to know beyond what what we got to try earlier in September, although it's notable that the Apple TV will regularly download new video screensavers to keep things fresh. The one certainty from this early look is that Apple has addressed many of the gripes with previous-gen hardware, including the addition of smaller but nice-to-have features that you might have missed.
