No Zwift Updates for Apple TV

My Zwift version is 1.10.1 (63586). I think this version has not changed since I started Zwifting in November, in spite of at least 2 email notifications that updates are available. I access the app through Apple TV and my smart bike is Wahoo Kickr. My Apple TV is set to “automatic updates” for apps. The emails I get from Zwift suggest that other platforms receive their updates first, but Apple TV updates “will be available soon”. At the suggestion of an “Ambassador” I deleted the Zwift app and then downloaded it again. Still no update. Does anyone have any suggestions? Which is the latest update that is available for Apple TV? I purchased the Apple TV because multiple sources told me it is one of the best ways to access Zwift and get a quality visual product. If this is not the case, can anyone suggest a preferable method?

I always just update the Zwift app manually. Go to the app store, go to purchased, find zwift, and you’ll see the update button.

Version 1.10.1 (63586) was released yesterday, (as a bugfix for 1.10.0 which was released on Tuesday), and became available on Apple TV today, so it likes like your automatic updates are working just fine.

You can find out what the latest version on all platforms is by checking this post:

1.10.1 (63586) is the current version of Zwift for ATV, so you’re up-to-date. I’ve been using Zwift on ATV 4K for three years now, and updates always arrive within a day or so of the iOS updates. There have been several updates since November, I would respectfully suggest you haven’t been watching the version numbers very carefully - if you have Auto Update switched on these things just download and install in the background, which is the whole idea. And those people who told you that the ATV is the best quality/cost option for using Zwift were right.

Not really, it’s easy to knock an old office PC into something that will have better graphics and none of the input limitations (or that remote) for about £150.

Whats with the hate - the OP asked for advice and Dave freely gave it- sheesh, some people.

Let me clarify - Dave answered the OP, you added no value to the conversation.

Wow, that’s a bit strong. I’m quite confident I’ve helped many people with their Zwift setup as it happens, including building PCs at different levels of spec at cost for over twenty less confident people to date and putting together over a dozen guides and reference documents.

Apple TV certainly has its place. It’s also flawed in many ways and it’s pretty easy to find many, many posts in here and elsewhere from people having multiple issues with it (including the thread that’s currently 190 posts long about Saris trainers). I like to challenge the notion that it’s the ‘best’ at anything beyond being small, that’s all. There are a lot of common misconceptions about how much effort and cost it takes to get a much better experience in the game.

But point taken.

This thread started with some questions and this sentence:

And after a posting saying
And those people who told you that the ATV is the best quality/cost option for using Zwift were right is Dave’s answer justified and correct.

By the way I am one of the users who got help by Dave - not directly, but reading

Since i reboot the atv just before starting a new ride, and did some improvements on the wireless (atv close to bike etc) no more probs. Except the ble limitation of 2 sensors) But as my cave is fully equipped, i probably move to full size gaming pc rig with all the bells and whistles, just because i like that.
