Apple Support is repeatedly telling customers this is a Roku issue and not an Apple issue. Please reach out to your contacts within Apple and include the 20+ support posts then maybe they will better understand how this is on them to fix.

I contacted Apple first. They escalated me to a tier 2 agent, then told me to contact Roku.

That makes no sense since Apple TV + works fine on my 5 other Roku devices.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Please provide us with the following information for further investigation:

  1. Roku device model, Serial number, Device ID, Software OS/version (these can all be found in Settings > System > About)
  2. Does this issue occur on a specific channel? If so, what channel and what version/build is the channel (this can be found by selecting the channel on the Home screen and pressing the * button)
  3. Tracker ID when this issue occurs (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times, and provide us with this ID)
  4. Steps to reproduce the issue you are seeing

Once we have the information needed, we'll be able to forward it to the appropriate Roku team to investigate further.


All the best,
Kariza

Opened a support ticket with Apple today and was working with a support engineer from the meda services group. It appears this issue is known to apple since the support tech I worked with has seen this before. Basically she had me enable Secret Screen 2 on the Roku (5 x Home, up, right down, left up)  "Log Info" "Start Verbose Logging" start the Apple TV app and try to login. Go back to the home screen and give the "tracker id" to support (5 x home, 5 x back). Apple support is calling me back tomorrow to continue troubleshooting. Will keep you guys posted.

Model - 3820X - Streaming Stick 4K

Serial Number: X017003YMJK6

Device ID: S08Y428YMJK6

Issue occurs with Apple TV channel (version 13.0 - build 55)

Issue ID: K6-478-247

When attempting to log in to the Apple TV app, you do not get an option to log in via mobile - only to log in via remote. When you input your username and PW, you get the following message: "Verification Failed. There were errors signing you in. Wait a moment, then try again."
