Although it didn’t get the same attention as iOS 15 and macOS Monterey, tvOS 15 was also announced at WWDC 2021 with some new features for Apple TV users, including support for Spatial Audio with compatible AirPods for the first time.
Spatial Audio was first introduced last year with iOS 14 for AirPods Pro and AirPods Max users.
At least on iOS, Spatial Audio with head tracking uses special sensors to detect the position of the iPhone or iPad and also the AirPods to create the feeling that the sound is coming from the device, but this has never been implemented on the Mac or Apple TV due to the lack of such sensors.
tvOS 15 also makes it easier to connect AirPods to Apple TV, as it now recognizes the headphones nearby and displays a pop-up asking if you want to pair them with the TV.
