Apple have started to roll out its new ‘under the sea’ screensavers to Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K users.
Produced in partnership with the BBC’s Natural History Unit and shot in 4K HDR, the new additions to Apple’s ‘Aerial’ screensavers offer multiple stunning looks at the underwater world.
Joining last years shots from space taken by the International Space Station and panoramic vistas shot around the world, the underwater clips round out what has fast become a signature feature of our favourite set-top box. The underwater clips are still referenced as Aerials by Apple when they are not aerial shots. The hope is that more user management of Apple TV’s screensavers – including category filtering – will come in an iterative update to tvOS in the near future.
The beautiful footage which includes barracuda, palua coral and jellyfish is also joined by a handful of new shots from the International Space Station.
The complete list of new additions follow:
Space: Atlantic Ocean to Spain and France
Space: Nile Delta
Space: South Africa to North Asia
Sea: Palau Coral
Sea: Palua Jellies
Sea: Sea Stars
