Apple TV software update adds missing Podcasts app

That's about the only new feature in tvOS, for now.

Apple has a host of notable updates coming for iOS, the Apple Watch and the new Apple TV. But in the meantime, the company has just released tvOS 9.1.1, a relatively minor bug fix update that nonetheless contains at least one user-facing feature: a Podcasts app. The fact that the new Apple TV shipped without this app was rather puzzling, as the older Apple TV has had podcast features for some time. Now, that gap has been closed.

There's not much else to speak of in this update, but tvOS 9.2 will bring the ability to group apps into folders, bluetooth keyboard support and a new multitasking interface. There's no word on when that'll launch, but it'll likely be sometime this spring alongside iOS 9.3 and WatchOS 2.2, all of which are currently in beta.
