Quick Tip: Home Screen Sync on Apple TV

If you have more than one Apple TV at home, it may be a good idea to use the same settings and apps on both devices. With the introduction of tvOS 11, it’s a lot easier to keep apps on multiple Apple TVs using the Home Screen Sync feature.

Apple TV One Home Screen

In this quick guide, we’ll explain how to keep the Home screen of multiple Apple TVs in order. This also saves you a lot of time and effort when you want to sort everything neatly. From tvOS 11 you will find an option called Home Screen Sync in Apple TV settings. You enable this option as follows:

  1. Open the Settings app on your Apple TV.
  2. Go to Accounts> iCloud.
  3. Enable the One Home Screen option.

By enabling this option, the startups on all your Apple TVs will look the same as long as you’re logged in with the same iCloud account.

Note: The Home Screen Sync feature works only on Apple TV 4. Also, you must enable this option on all Apple TV’s at home.

You can also set Apple TV to automatically install apps if you install the corresponding iPhone app on your device.
