tvOS 18 brings InSight, improves Enhance Dialogue, Subtitles

Apple has introduced tvOS 18 at the WWDC 2024, as expected. This brings new InSight feature, and improves Enhance Dialogue, subtitles, and more.


InSight provides information about actors, characters, and music in real time from Apple TV+ movies and shows. Users can simply select an actor to view their background and filmography page, or quickly view the song that is playing in a scene and add it to an Apple Music playlist. Viewers can also see InSight information on their iPhone when using it as an Apple TV remote.

Enhance Dialogue

The Enhance Dialogue feature that is also available now uses machine learning and computational audio to deliver greater vocal clarity over music, action, and background noise on Apple TV 4K.

In addition to HomePod speakers, Enhance Dialogue will be available when listening through built-in TV or HDMI-connected speakers, AirPods and other Bluetooth-connected devices when playing supported content on iPhone and iPad.


Subtitles now automatically appear at just the right moments, including when the language in a show or film does not match the device language, when users mute, or when they skip back while watching something.

Other features

tvOS 18 also brings 21:9 support for playing movies and shows on projectors. There are new screen savers like Portraits, TV and Movies, and even Snoopy.

There are also new features for FaceTime, Apple Fitness+, and the Home app. FaceTime now supports Live Captions, which will caption the call for users.

Apple Fitness+ has been redesigned to make it easier to find workouts and stay motivated. The Home app now supports guest access, hands-free unlocking with Home Keys, and more detailed energy usage information. Robot vacuum cleaners are now compatible with the Home app, and AirPlay now supports Spatial Audio.


The tvOS 18 developer beta is available starting today; and a public beta program will be available to Apple TV users later. tvOS 18 will be available this fall as a free software update for Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD.
