tvOS 13.3

I’ve recently updated to tvOS 13.3.

I know if I tap the trackpad while viewing content I will see a display at the bottom of the image showing time viewed and time remaining.

I don’t know if the following is new in 13.3 or just something I stumbled upon for the first time…

If I tap a second time before the display goes away the display changes to the current time and the time the content will end (end of program, whatever).

So far that’s all I’ve noticed in 13.3 that I had not seen before.


I believe that’s new to tvOS 13, and I think I’ve failed to mention it in any of my TidBITS coverage. Might be a future TipBIT.

Are you replying to the post about time data in tvOS 13.3? I’m pretty sure that the behavior where one tap gives you total time and time remaining then double tap gives your clock time, has been around for quite a while. I’ve been using it for at least a year.

That feature has been there for years.


Any idea how to have Photos under tvOS display file names?


I don’t believe it’s possible, but I’d love to be wrong.
