Apple customers are reporting that the Cupertino giant has begun rolling out new builds of the Apple TV 6.0 Software Update for second and third-generation set-top boxes, following concerns that the previous build would brick devices.

The initial Apple TV 6.0 (build 11A470e) update released last week reportedly bricked a number of set-top boxes, and Apple was forced to pull the software.

After carrying out the necessary maintenance, Apple today is re-offering Apple TV 6.0 with a higher build number (11A502) and, presumably, some code corrections.

Apple TV 6.0 brings the all-new iTunes Radio music streaming service, offers access to the iTunes Music Store with purchase and playback capabilities, iCloud Photos, Podcast syncing, and more.

Apple TV Software Update 6.0 is a free download for all Apple TV owners (starting with the second-generation model and upwards).
