The iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch are getting all the attention today with the public releases of iOS 10 and watchOS 3, but the Apple TV also just got a ton of new features thanks to the official release of tvOS 10.

Even though tvOS 10’s list of new features isn’t as extensive as iOS 10, there are still a number of great new additions, including a new Dark mode that can be toggled in Settings to make the screen easier on your eyes.

If you have a smart thermostat, you can now change the temperature from Apple TV. The new Memories feature from iOS 10’s Photos app also makes its way to the big screen in the new update and you can automatically choose to have Apple TV automatically download any apps you’ve installed on your iPhone.

Unfortunately, Single sign-on which simplifies access to entertainment apps isn’t ready quite yet. Apple says that feature will be added later this fall.

Apple TV owners can grab download and install the update immediately by going to Settings >> System >> Software Update on Apple TV.
