For whatever reason, Apple didn’t mention tvOS 11 today onstage at WWDC 2017. They did announce that Amazon is bringing Prime Video to the platform, but that’s about it. But now that the first developer preview of the software has been released, so have release notes for the future OS upgrade for the fourth-generation Apple TV.

For starters, dark and normal modes for tvOS 11 can now switch automatically depending on the time of day or whatever time you set them to. Home screen syncing options across various Apple TVs, new background options for further customization, notification support, Focus API improvements, customized sound support, and network-based pairing and development support can all be found as well in addition to improvements to Mobile Device Management.

Of course, if more features are discovered, we’ll let you know. For now, developers can test tvOS 11 while the rest of the world will need to wait until the fall for the OS upgrade to hit their Apple TVs.
