A new Apple TV is coming soon, and it may even let you watch cable TV and play games. But any new hardware is a few months away, so here are some tips to get the most out of your current Apple TV. If you hold down the menu button while doing anything, you’ll get back to the Apple TV dashboard instantly. If you’re browsing through a video app – like Netflix or HBO Go – pressing “play” on what you want to watch will load the video immediately; there’s no need to go to the summary page to start playing your video. And during video playback, holding up shows info about the video, then holding select while that info bar is up gives you audio options, like closed captioning. Finally, if you’re tired of that tiny Apple TV remote, you can control your Apple TV with any iDevice through Apple’s Remote app, which makes it easier to do lots of things – especially searching for that next movie you want to watch.
