Cast Shadows on Apple tv?! Yeah!

Hey I just did an event on Apple tv in the NYC environment and there were cast shadows! Is this now a permanent feature? First time I’ve seen this.

Will have to switch to ATV this evening and take a look.

Is there a place where all the updates on the different platforms are listed with the changelog? I only seem to be able to find the major updates…

This makes a huge difference. Now we can really recommend ATV 4K. Thank you so much Zwift!

Are shadows present in all worlds or just NY? I’m trying to decide if AppleTv is worth it.

All worlds have shadows. Your bike will not have a cast shadow but no biggie. The environments look great. Been running it since I started. Quick start up. Has worked great. Only quirk is to time when I put my HR strap on to pair with it. A little finicky. I put it on the moment before I open the game and it pairs well that way.

Thanks for the information. I went ahead and picked up an Apple TV 4K. For anyone else reading this in the future, I switched from an iPad 2017 which I often ran directly to my tv with a lightning to hdmi. The Apple TV is a pretty big improvement - not just the shadows but overall graphics such as the road resolution. My setup is Apple TV into into a 32in tv at 1080p on a wall that my front tire touches. Looks great.
