Apple unveiled the tvOS 17 system for its TVs during its annual developer conference, WWDC 2023, and Apple announced that the new system will support running VPN applications for the first time.
The virtual network applications will allow Apple TV users to change the geographical location to a country other than the one in which they reside, allowing them to run applications and services on TV that are not available in their countries.

VPN applications will also enable users to access blocked content within their geographic range, and Apple said that supporting these applications “can benefit education and business users who want to access content on their own networks.”
With this new development, VPN service providers will be able to provide copies of their applications on Apple TV devices like other devices, but it is not known whether Apple will restrict the use of these applications or not on tvOS.
Virtual Private Network technology – known as VPN – is a tool used to secure the Internet connection and protect users’ data. It encrypts the data and sends it through a secure tunnel to the VPN server, where the data is decrypted and sent to the desired destination. This secure tunnel prevents anyone else from seeing User data or tampering with it, useful for hiding the device address when connected to the Internet, securing data, bypassing blocking in any geographical area, and more.
It is reported that Apple has revealed other advantages in the new tvOS 17 system, such as the ability to make video calls via FaceTime through TVs, redesigning the Control Center, and others.
It is expected that new VPN applications will appear for Apple TV devices in the coming months, and the system is expected to be launched in the fall of this year after the end of the beta phase.
