The beta of iOS 8, which rolled out on Wednesday, was supposed to fix a bug that would make the AppleTV incompatible with some third-party apps.
That bug was not fixed in the final release.
But AppleInsider’s own analysis found that the beta of 8.0 had only been updated a few times.
So while the new release will work with most third-parties, AppleInsiders said the company was not yet ready to release it to the public.
It also said that AppleTV users will need to use the new version of the app to connect their AppleTV to a Wi-Fi network.
“As a result, some third party apps will not work,” the company wrote.
“Some apps may still be able to work, but for now, they are not supported.”
It also found that some third parties may not support the new update because they don’t have a beta tag, and some may not have a tag for iOS 8.
It was not immediately clear how many apps had been affected by the bug.
AppleInsides reported that the company had received about 2,000 beta tags.
“This bug could cause some of the most popular apps to not work on the new Beta, including Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, Spotify, YouTube, and Apple Music,” it said.
The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
