All our wishes for a major tvOS revamp with the arrival of its version 15 vanished during the WWDC21 that we recently live live through Actualidad Gadget. There was no renovation of the home screen or revolutionary functions, however, we did find the odd “hidden detail”.
Now we can easily log in and fill in data on tvOS using Face ID on our iPhone. These types of integrations are what make Apple TV a product that is especially recommended for Apple users in general, with quite a distance from other more popular and much worse integrated Smart TVs.
As we have said before, the integration of the HomePod Mini with the Apple TV is one of the few novelties regarding tvOS 15. However, a detail regarding the integration also seems quite interesting to us. Now we will be able to log in more quickly in our applications or services integrated with the Apple TV using directly the Face ID or the Touch ID of our iPhone, as we can see in the capture that the companions of9to5Mac where we can appreciate this new identification system.
In this way and through a notification, the iCloud keychain will be synchronized and will offer us the correct alternative quickly, thus invoking the iOS device that is closest to us, generally our iPhone. Although it is true that the integration of the identification systems through the TV Remote integrated in iOS was already quite good, now we find it at a maximum integration level because we will only have to click on the notification and identify ourselves through Face ID or any other system that we use regularly. Anything to improve tvOS integration will be welcome despite the splash of cold water that WWDC brought.
