Flickering screen? Audio problems? Apple TV won't wake up? Ouch. Well, Apple has worked out some of those kinks. Good news for those who have been seeing those problems on their device.
Apple's note-quite-as-popular-as-their-other-products set-top box, Apple TV, recently got an update that fixed some annoying issues with the device.
Update 4.2.1 will take care of some problems that may have plagued users after the last update. Here are the fixes as per Apple:
TV compatibility Addresses issues that may cause the screen to flicker or display incorrect color on some older TVs. Wake from sleep Addresses an issue where Apple TV may not wake up from sleep. Audio Addresses an issue where audio may not be heard on some TV models after switching from another input. Stability and performance Apple TV Software Update 4.2.1 includes stability and performance fixes for Apple TV.
Apple's latest iteration of their set-top box was introduced last year in September during their iPod event. It's by no means as popular as devices like the iPhone and iPad, but it is selling more than the previous-gen Apple TV thanks to the $99 price point.
