What's New with tvOS 13
Unlike tvOS 12, the new version of Apple TV operating system does not bring dozens of news, but has some very interesting new features.
Multi-user support and new Control Center
Thinking about integration with some of your services, such as Apple music it's the Apple Arcade, Ma has implemented multi-user support on Apple TV, allowing people to create multiple individual accounts to access their personalized content.
Pressing the "TV" button (next to the "Menu" button) opens the Control Center, where you can view the option to switch between profiles created on that Apple TV. A small sign next to the name indicates which profile is currently active, you can put Apple TV to sleep, access AirPlay, and search the Control Center.
Console Controls Support
Precisely by including Ma's new gaming platform, Apple Arcade, tvOS 13 has gained support for Xbox One S controls and PlayStation DualShock 4, which users have long coveted.
