The update brings U-verse to version 4.0 and adds native iPad support to the app, which, since June 2009 and until now, has been optimized only for iPhone and iPod touch. A separate AT&T U-verse app for iPad is also available, but it may soon be retired now that there’s already a universal U-verse app.
In addition to universal support, U-verse 4.0 introduces a design refresh featuring a new My U-verse homepage and a new My U-verse Favorites section:
AT&T U-verse for iOS has been completely redesigned to make it even easier for you to manage and watch your shows whenever and wherever you want. The new My U-verse homepage highlights the shows that you care about most and recommends new shows for you to discover. Adding your favorite shows, channels, and people to My U-verse Favorites allows you to personalize your U-verse experience, maximizing your enjoyment of the App.
U-verse 4.0 also boasts full resolution support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Note that the app requires a qualifying device, a U-family or higher TV plan, and a Wi-Fi or data connection.
