Apple Cancels Apple TV 6.0 Update Due To Bricking Issues

Posted Sep 22, 2013

Apple has cancelled the Apple TV 6.0 update, which was released on Friday.  There were reports on Apple’s support forums saying that the update caused the Apple TV to get “bricked.”

“Bricked after update. Finally found micro USB cord, hooked up to iTunes and said it was restored. Said to connect to the TV. Hit ok and the light instantly started flaunt again. Same graphic on TV screen to reconnect to iTunes. Went through this three times and no love,” stated a forum member.

Some Apple TV devices were bricked and others experienced WiFi connection issues.

Apple TV 6.0 brings features like iTunes Radio, AirPlay from iCloud, and iTunes music purchases.  It is unknown when Apple will re-release Apple TV 6.0, but I’m guessing we’ll see it this coming week.
