Apple TV lets you watch your favorite TV shows and movies directly from streaming services, like HBO and Netflix. It also allows you to purchase or rent movies.
With its latest software, Apple TV can be easily set up in a few seconds to help you get going.
To configure it, follow these steps:
Choose an iOS device
Keep in mind that setting up Apple TV requires the use of an iOS device to connect to a WiFi network. The device can be your iPhone or iPad.
What is great about Apple TV is that you do not have to enable Bluetooth on your iOS device because Apple TV will do that for you.
Turn on that iOS device
By turning it on, Apple TV will detect it and it will start an automatic setup.
Enter your Apple ID
After the Apple TV has detected your iOS, it pairs itself to that device. A pop-up appears asking you to enter your Apple ID.
Tap Ok after you have provided your information.
It is not a good idea to let the Apple TV to remember your password. This is especially true if you have other members who will use such device. However, if it is just you, then it might be convenient if you let it remember your credentials.
Update its software
Apple will configure itself automatically. But it will not update itself without human intervention. Thus, you need to manually update its software by going to Settings and click on Software Update.
Tweak its settings
You can restrict what TV shows and movies your kids can watch through Apple TV, i.e. if you have children in your house. It can be changed through Restrictions options.
Then, do not forget to configure the AirPlay to help you control the people who can access it using your home network.
