It includes the latest Apple A10X Fusion chip and promises up to 2x CPU performance and 4x GPU performance.
Cue also mentioned the fact that Apple is driving towards the goal of offering live sports on the Apple TV, alongside on-demand 4K content from Apple, Netflix, and (in a few months) Amazon Prime. The device will be available to order from the Apple Store beginning September 15, shipping the following week on September 22. The new Apple TV 4K provides "stunning visuals" and will deliver "cinematic quality to virtually everything you watch".
It runs on latest version of tvOS. For more information, don't forget to check out our Apple TV 4K preview.
Apple TV is a set-top-box that you can hook up to your TV to access video apps and streaming services. But in the past two years smart TVs have also improved dramatically, leading some to suggest that there's limited place for a device like the Apple TV in our Android, Tizen, and WebOS-equipped future. The Apple TV 4K is capable of handling 4K video up to 60 fps. Essentially, Dolby Vision has extra information, which is used to optimise your picture on a frame-by-frame basis. The price point for 4K movies was reportedly a contentious issue between Apple and the studios - which wanted to retain their premium pricing on the Ultra HD versions. Apple TV will have 3GB of RAM.
Apple TV 4K Is a 4K Apple TV, Finally
Apple said Tuesday adding 4K resolution to its Apple TV streaming video device, finally catching up to competitors like Roku. With just two models of Apple TV now available, apple definitely sits in the latter camp.
So here's everything you need to know about the Apple TV 4K. In fact, the same 4K movie - such as Wonder Woman or (shudder at the thought) Baywatch in 4K costs $30 for the optical version on Amazon. Users will also get a revamped Siri Remote in the package.
The Apple TV makes up just one part of Apple's ever-widening TV and movie strategy. These titles will be available from the TV app, Cue said.
The update to Apple's television-connected box brings it in line with other hardware manufacturers who have offered 4K video support for a while.More news: Apple's Watch now a mobile phone, too
