Surfing contents on Apple’s fourth generation tvOS is a tough task and you need to see apps and other contents with squint eyes – God bless users who have poor vision!

How to Adjust Transparency and Contrast on Apple TV (4th Generation)

Step #1: Open Settings app on your Apple TV (4th Generation).

Step #2: Next, launch General → AccessibilityIncrease Contrast.

Step #3: Now you need to turn on Focus Style.

This will add a white border around the selected app or item on your Apple TV.

Note that the feature can be used by owners who have good vision as this clearly makes out difference between selected items and non-selected ones. In the default selection style, the chosen item simply pushed forward a little bit, which hardly gives users an impression that the item is selected. While a thick white border noticeably tells you the items are selected. This will also help you accelerate your user experience on Apple TV.
