Introduction to tvOS

App Center Team

Recently, Apple announced the AppleTV 4K, an improved version of the AppleTV launched in 2015, which brought us a new platform to develop for in tvOS. With the touch-enabled Siri remote, we have a new way to interact with apps on the big screen which is different, but not entirely unfamiliar. Having a device like this in the living room is a great way to bring people together and offers a unique stage for your apps.

From a developer’s perspective, tvOS presents many similarities to iOS (which it is built on), such as using UIKit and many other common iOS frameworks. This, alongside sharing common code with Xamarin, means that creating incredible apps for the big screen has never been easier!
