Apple has released an update for tvOS bringing it up to version 14.0.2, just 11 days after releasing tvOS 14.0.1.
The update for tvOS 14.0.2 is now available to download and install on the Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K. As a full release, it can be installed by all users and not just beta testers, but most users will experience it as an automatic update.
Users can manually update to tvOS 14.0.2 by opening the Settings app then selecting System, then Software Updates, then to select Check for Updates. If an update is available, a button to Download and Install will be present.
It is unclear what changes Apple has made in tvOS 14.0.2, but given the version number, they are likely to consist of bug fixes, performance improvements, and other smaller tweaks.
September’s tvOS 14 update introduced changes including better picture-in-picture support, HomeKit Doorbell alerts and camera feed improvements, as well as tweaks for Apple Arcade and audio sharing.

I’ve been experiencing infrequent quick white line artifacts that appear from my 4K Apple TV. I’ve narrowed it down to the ATV itself by connecting it with a different cable to a different input of my receiver and seeing the same thing. Other inputs, like my Nintendo Switch and PS4, do not show this. Anybody else seeing artifacts like this? I’m wondering if it’s possibly heat-related since I have the ATV in a cabinet and it seems to happen more in the warmer months.
HomePod connectivity is FINALLY persistent with tvOS 14. Man, that took way too long. Before I had to manually pair my HomePods each time I used my Apple TV.
Imagine how many sales Apple lost because of this crap?I wanna see new HomePods and Home Theater speakers from Apple like a soundbar. Now is the perfect time.
You know what? I remember seeing these back in my Wii playing days. I called Nintendo and (if I remember correctly) they said Wiis were having this problem when they were placed too close to Wifi routers. Something about the radio frequencies interfering. I remember moving the hardware further away and that solved the problem!
