Apple rolls out tvOS 14.5 with Color Balance feature

Apple has rolled out tvOS 14.5. It can be downloaded over the air through the Settings app on the Apple TV set-top box by going to System > Software Update. ‌Apple TV‌ owners who have automatic software updates enabled will be upgraded to tvOS 14.5 automatically.

According to Apple’s release notes, tvOS 14.5’s features includes support for new game controllers and the Color Balance feature announced with the new Apple TV set-top box. Through the color balance process, Apple TV works with iPhone and its advanced sensors to improve a television’s picture quality.

Apple TV uses the light sensor in iPhone to compare the color balance to the industry-standard specifications used by cinematographers worldwide. Using this data, Apple TV automatically tailors its video output to deliver much more accurate colors and improved contrast — without customers ever having to adjust their television settings.
