Apple has just released macOS Sonoma 14.1 and tvOS 17.1, providing a range of Macs and the Apple TV with a number of new features and numerous bug fixes. First and foremost, Apple revamps the Favorites section in the macOS Music app.

Apple has not only just released iOS 17.1, iPadOS 17.1 and watchOS 10.1, but also macOS Sonoma 14.1 and tvOS 17.1. These two updates are significantly smaller than the patches for the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. First and foremost, the Music app in macOS has an improved Favorites section that can display titles as well as albums and playlists.

System Settings now allows users to not only view the warranty status of the respective Mac, but also to check the warranty of AirPods, AirPods Pro and AirPods Max as well as Beats headphones as long as they are linked to the same Apple ID. Apple fixes a bug that previously caused app permissions settings for Location Services and System Services to be reset. Encrypted external hard drives should be detected more reliably after the update. The update is around 2.25 GB and is now available in the system settings under General --> Software Update.

Apple TV gets one new feature in particular with tvOS 17.1, namely the possibility of using the "Enhance Dialogue" function in conjunction with the first generation HomePod and the HomePod Mini; this function was previously reserved for the HomePod 2. Enhance Dialogue allows dialogues to be louder without amplifying the rest of the soundscape. The Music app on Apple TV has also been expanded to include an improved Favorites section, accompanied by a number of bug fixes.
