Effective Monday September 24th, the Apple TV version of Minecraft will no longer be updated or supported.We’re grateful to the Apple TV community for their support but we need to reallocate resources to the platforms that our players use the most.It was announced on October 27, 2016, officially released on December 19, 2016, alongside Fire TV Edition, and discontinued on September 24, 2018.
If you need more time to make your apps look fantastic in Dark Mode, or if Dark Mode is not suited for your app, you can learn how to opt out.
In an effort to open up additional opportunities for developers, we’ve worked with the government of the Republic of Korea on making more apps available on the App Store in the Republic of Korea.
On September 24, 2018, Apple TV Edition was removed from the Apple TV store and the following message was broadcasted via the in-game patch notes.
The patch notes were localized in all supported languages with local numbers for Apple Support included for each region/country.
Dark Mode introduces a dramatic new look for i Phone and i Pad that is seamlessly integrated throughout the system and simple to turn on from Control Center or Siri.
With a dark appearance for all user interface elements, your app’s content becomes the focus.
However, Apple TV Edition was out-of-date as of the 1.1.6 update and could not play with other Bedrock Editions.
It supported Realms, but could only play with other users of Apple TV Edition after that update.
For more information or to check on the status of your refund, please contact Apple Customer Service at [Apple Support website] or [Apple Support number].
In addition to features which existed in Pocket Edition, the Apple TV Edition had the ability to play with up to seven players through local multiplayer.
Don’t worry though, you can continue to play Minecraft on Apple TV, keep building in your world and your Marketplace purchases (including Minecoins) will continue to be available.
