📺 It’s Roku (and Apple) Day

Happy Monday! Roku had two major announcements this morning. First, Roku OS 11.5 will roll out to TVs and streaming sticks soon, which is the most significant update to the home screen in years.

We’re also expecting Apple to release iOS 16 later today — stay tuned for that.
