If you want to expand your knowledge on the various facets that make up a movie or TV show, Apple InSight will give you, basically, the insights. The new function will provide you with current information about the actors of the show, the characters and even the music. This is similar to Amazon’s X-ray feature now present on Fire TV devices.

Just by tapping or swiping down on your Siri remote, you will get the biographies and trivia on the characters in the scene or the actors playing them. Want to check out each actor? Just select anyone you want to pull up their data.

Plus, you can also receive some details of the song or music in the background. InSight will identify the music, similar to how Shazam works, and show you the title of the song. You can even add it to your Apple Music library in an instant.

What’s more, you can also view Insight on any connected iPhone. This gives you more options if you don’t want any clutter on your TV. There is only one catch. You can only use InSight on Apple TV Plus and not on other streaming platforms.

Wrapping It Up

Apple InSight is part of the tvOS 18 version for Apple TV. Aside from InSight, Apple also announced several features for the tVOS update. Users are able to enjoy smart, context-sensitive subtitles that appear if you skip back or replay and mute the volume. Subtitles will also appear if a different language is currently spoken by the characters.

In addition, Apple will also enhance its audio settings, extending them to other devices. There is also the Enhance Dialogue feature that separates the dialogue from the background noise for better audio. Plus, support for 21:9 projections and new screen savers are coming your way.

There is no definite release date of the tvOS 18 but we can expect it later this year.
