This article discusses how to update Apple TVs remotely with JAMF.
Note: Apple TVs on tvOS 11 cannot be remotely updated. Network Managers will need to manually update each Apple TV by navigating to Settings > System > Software Updates > Update Software. Once the OS is on tvOS 12 or higher, the Operating System can be updated remotely.
Log into Jamf console
Create Smart Device Group
Add Smart Group to dashboard (optional)
Send Remote Update Command
The command to update the tvOS is now sent. If the Apple TVs are on tvOS 12 or later, they will download the update in the background and then automatically reboot and install.
