Apple pulls Apple TV 6.0 update as it bricks some devices

On September 23, 2013


If you have tried updating your Apple TV over the weekend then you might have noticed that the device will tell you 5.3 is the latest update…. but wait how can that be when Apple just released 6.0 on Friday?

The answer is simple. Sometime Saturday Apple withdrew the latest software update for its Apple TV, this came as a result of numerous people complaining that the update left their devices unstable and some even bricked during the update.

Even though Apple says the issue is only affecting some users, it has apparently been enough for the company to pull their update, unlike the one for the best Android tablet. According to AllThingsD an Apple customer support representative stated, “the company is working on a fix, and that the firmware update will be made available again as soon as the issue is resolved”.
