Apple TV app gets new sidebar on iPad and dedicated Store tab with iOS 15.2 beta 2


Apple today released the second developer beta of iOS 15.2 and iPadOS 15.2, which includes child-safe features in iMessage and a Hide My Email option in the Mail app. ‘Apple. Interestingly, today’s beta also brings a refreshed design to the Apple TV app on iPad with a new sidebar. Additionally, there is now a dedicated Store tab in the app.

The first thing iPad users will notice when they first open the Apple TV app on their iPad is a new sidebar, which replaces the tab bar at the bottom of the screen. There, users can easily find all sections of the Apple TV app, including Watch Now, Apple TV+ Originals, Search, and Library.

The sidebar looks the same as in other iPad apps that already have it, such as Music, Photos, and even Safari. As for iPhone and Mac users, they will also get a new dedicated Store tab in the Apple TV app with iOS 15.2 beta 2 and macOS Monterey 12.1 beta 2.

Previously, movies and TV shows from the iTunes Store were merged with content found in the Apple TV app, so there was no easy way to find only content available for purchase. As expected, the Store tab only shows what’s available in the iTunes Store for purchase or rental, but users can still see if the content is also available on a supported streaming service.

We don’t know exactly when iOS 15.2 will be available to the public, but the final version will likely arrive by the end of the year.
