Introduced in macOS Sierra, Picture - in - Picture mode for Safari allows users to pop a video out from a webpage and onto the Mac desktop. The floating and resizable window hovers above other applications, keeping it in view while other applications are kept usable in the background.

Apple TV Remote: Control your Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Camera: Quickly take a picture , a selfie, or record video. Night Shift: In the Brightness control, turn on Night Shift to adjust the colors in your display to the warmer end of the spectrum at night.

Apple seemingly left one new, upcoming tvOS feature out of the company’s WWDC keynote earlier this month: picture-in-picture

. 9to5Mac reports that today’s developer beta of tvOS 13 allows Apple TV users to shrink down any video playing in the Apple TV app to a corner of the screen and continue browsing through other content and menus — while still watching whatever video was originally playing. Unfortunately a public beta for tvOS 13 isn’t yet available and is expected in July.

For now, picture-in-picture is said to be limited to the Apple TV app, but hopefully the same functionality comes to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and other popular streaming services.

The Picture in Picture mode is one of the most significant features that iOS 11 has got for iPad. Note: Though PiP mode came in iOS 9, it hasn’t yet been available in many video apps and web services. Do you think that Apple ’s tablet can be a worthy replacement for a computer?

Picture in Picture Keep one eye on what you’re watching and the other on what you’re doing. Now you can float a video window from Safari or iTunes over your desktop Once Picture in Picture mode is enabled, you can dock the video that you want to detach from its player in any of the screen’s corners.

If nothing else, it’d allow you to start watching something “eh” and dig through the selection of other apps in hopes of finding a better pick.

Or maybe you’d be able to keep tabs on a sports game while playing an Apple Arcade title. Some third-party apps like PlayStation Vue already have their own picture-in-picture solutions; you can watch four live channels simultaneously with Sony’s TV service.

If you’ve ever used picture-in-picture mode on an iPad, this basically looks the same. Inside the smaller video window you’ll see options to maximize it back to full screen or exit out of the content entirely.

There’s the possibility that PIP might not make it into the final tvOS update this fall — especially since it didn’t get a mention from Apple onstage — but it’s a pretty straightforward feature and nice complement to the other tvOS 13 additions like multi-user support.
