Apple has launched the next generation of the Apple TV 4K which can now deliver high-frame rate HDR with Dolby Vision and an all-new Siri remote control.
The new Apple TV 4K is powered by the Apple A12 Bionic chip which significantly improves graphics processing, video decoding and audio processing to improve your experience across the board.
“Apple TV 4K is in a category of its own, leveraging a deep integration of Apple hardware, software, and services that delivers a massive upgrade to any TV for the very best cinematic experience,” said Bob Borchers, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
“With the A12 Bionic and the all-new Siri Remote, Apple TV 4K lets customers enjoy their favourite shows, movies, and more in the highest quality, with simple and intuitive controls. And of course, Apple TV 4K offers easy access to Apple services, along with thousands of apps on the App Store for even more entertainment options.”
Apple TV 4K now supports 4K HDR and Dolby Vision at up to 60 frames per second for smoother playback than ever before.
There is also a new colour balance process that uses the iPhone and its advanced sensors to improve a TV’s colour balance and picture quality to the industry standard specifications used by cinematographers around the world.
There’s also a redesigned Siri remote which has a new click pad control that offers five-way navigation.
It is also touch enabled for fast directional swipes and the outer ring supports a circular gesture so you can jog through to find a scene or section of the movie you’re watching.
Apple TV 4K allows users to access a raft of content including Apple Arcade, Apple TV+, and Apple Fitness+.
The new Apple TV 4K will start at $249 with pre-orders starting April 30 and release set for the second half of May.
