New Apple TV software update pulled after Friday release

Some owners of the Apple TV set-top box got to download version 6.0 of its software on Friday. While the new version adds some extra features for Apple TV users, it also brought some problems to the device as well.

9to5Mac reports that many Apple TV owners were not able to download content after the update was installed, even if there was an active Internet connection available. Other users found the update deleted content that was already stored on the device. Some have even claimed that the 6.0 update bricked their Apple TV completely, making it unusable.

Apple has yet to officially comment on these reports, but the company has apparently gone ahead and pulled the automatic version of the 6.0 Apple TV update, although it is still available as a manual download from Apple's website. We would suggest that owners of the set top box don't bother downloading this software until Apple works the kinks out of it.

The Apple TV 6.0 update launched at the same time as the iPhone 5c and 5s went on sale Friday and added iTunes Radio, iTunes Music Store, conference room mode and even more features to the mix
