tvOS 9.2 delivering tons of new features to Apple TV

Apple released its latest beta software updates for watchOS, iOS, OS X and tvOS on Monday. It wasn’t immediately clear what was included in some of those releases, but now we have a better idea of some new features in the tvOS 9.2 beta. They aren’t available for everyone now — unless you’re willing to test the beta software — but they’re a taste of what’s to come.

9to5Mac dug around the latest tvOS 9.2 beta and found that there’s now support for Bluetooth keyboards, which should remove the nightmare of having to enter in passwords or search terms using the included remote. Additionally, users will be able to sort apps into folders. That should mean you’ll be able to keep all of your games in one place on the home screen, for example. There’s also a new app switcher that should make it easier to flip between open applications, and a Podcast application for listening to your favorite shows (ahem, The TechnoBuffalo Show, for example.)

No word yet on when tvOS 9.2 will launch for everyone, but there’s definitely several reasons to look forward to the release.
