Resources to Help You When Deploying Apple TVs

Below is a list of useful resources to help you understand how Apple TVs work and how to deploy and manage them at scale. Apple recently launched a series of new web resources including updated deployment reference guides for Macs and iPads, MDM reference guide, and a platform security guide. Previously these were released as pdf documents available through the Developer portal. With the new format, the information is much more accessible to all users and easier to navigate than traditional pdfs. Their Apple TV documentation and relevant sections are linked below.

In addition to these resources, you should check out the #apple-tv channel on the MacAdmins Slack. There are some really smart people who have deployed many of these devices who will be happy to help guide you along the way. https://macadmins.slack.com
