It looks like our tvOS mappings are the following elements: 


Specifically, none of the NSString Core Graphic drawing extensions have been defined.

I might have been too quick on them - many (but maybe not all) were deprecated and not part of tvOS. I'll review those. thanks!

UIStringDrawing.h was already deprecated (in iOS) and not part of tvOS
NSStringDrawing.h is available for iOS and mostly for tvOS

AFAICS the only API removed are the old, deprecated ones. The category for NSStringDrawing is still part of the bindings and should be available on tvOS.

Still headers can be confusing (and our tests could have missed some cases) so can you tell me exactly which API is missing ? I'll triple-check (or ask someone else, a fresh new pair of eyes to look at it). thanks!

please let us know if there's something missing from the latest preview/master

Will do, I'll re-run the app where this issue was showing up and see what happens.
