- [Voiceover] A great range of Apps can now be made for Apple TV. From Social Apps to streaming movies, to listening to music, to Productivity Apps, even games. The tvOS is based on iOS, but it is nonetheless different, as some frameworks are only supported on tvOS. One of the main difference is the ability to have Multi-user Apps and games on the same TV device. Developers can either create new Apps or reuse the iOS code as a starting point for tvOS App.
Either way, developers will use X Code as the integrated development environment and use Objective C, and Swift languages. When porting an existing project, developers can add an additional target to the iOS Project to speed up process. These will only share resources. The storyboards are unique to tvOS as the interface is much different than iOS. Developers have to follow the human interface guidelines specific to tvOS.
As for publishing the tvOS App, new TV specific provisioning profiles are required. Having said that, porting Apps to an Apple TV is a simple process, if you already have an iOS Application.
