Rumor: Apple TV will gain support for multiple users and Picture-in-Picture mode on tvOS 11

After the iOS 11 rumor brought group calls to FaceTime, now the Israeli website The Verifier quotes (Google Translate) possible improvements to the tvOS 11, which is expected to be announced alongside Apple's other operating systems in June, at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2017.

Affirming that the information came from reliable sources (although the site does not have any history of confirmed rumors), two very interesting news are cited that may arrive on tvOS 11: support for multiple users it's the mode Picture-in-Picture (PiP).

As shown by mockups above, created by the site, it will be possible to log in with different Apple IDs in order to access music, playlists, photos and user apps. Furthermore, as the 9to5Mac, if this feature really comes, it would make sense for iOS 11 to also arrive with the same novelty (something iPad owners have been waiting for a long time).

PiP would work the same way as on iOS 9/10 and macOS Sierra. Basically, it will be possible to place the video being played in a smaller version, in the corner of the screen; that is, the user can continue accessing the home screen or any other application without having to stop watching the video.

So, you could still continue watching the videos from MacMagazine on your Apple TV and together access other apps or even play games. However, if you open another video, what is playing will pause; that is, it will not be possible to watch more than one video side by side at the same time.

In addition to these two improvements, the site still claims that some Apple plans have leaked in relation to the implementation of a live guide (Electronic Program Guide, or EPG) and the company would also be closing deals with providers to provide live TV broadcasts for fees. monthly / annual, both somewhat recurring rumors.
