Hands-on with the updated UI for Apple TV: get ready for more apps Apple released the expected software update for the second-generation Apple TV on Thursday. The update brings the second-gen Apple TV UI in line with the third-generation version introduced on March 7, bringing some fundamental changes to its interface and opening up Apple's options for adding more apps and content. We downloaded the update as soon as it was released to get a feel for what has changed for existing Apple TV owners—and what can be expected from the third-generation version. The most obvious change on the new main screen is the absence of a menu bar. The rest of the main menu is now populated largely with what was getting crowded into the Apple TV's old "Internet" menu, as Apple continues to add streaming live and recorded content from other sources. Apple has made the interface for Movies and other content more like that of iTunes and Mac OS X's "cover flow" animated menus. For those who haven't yet checked it out, the sports content is a big boost.
