What do devs need to know about the Apple TV?


In this Ask A Dev, iOS Engineer Sean McMains tells eager developers what they’ll need to master in order to make the most out of the new Apple TV and tvOS software development kit.

Sean kicks things off by telling us about the two methods of developing an Apple TV app: TVML and UIKit. He also runs through the available APIs we can play with to make our apps more robust, and explains the new “Focus Engine” that allows us to control on-screen content via the Siri Remote. Lastly, he notes some technical limitations we need to keep in mind before we even begin our apps. It all starts by watching this episode of Ask A Dev.

New to development or a pro who needs help? Just tweet your question to #AskADev. We’ll pick the best ones and have a developer answer them.
