Apple has unveiled the fourth-generation Apple TV. It is powered by the A12 Bionic chip, which significantly boosts graphics performance, video decoding, and audio processing. With the Apple TV, Apple has also released a brand-new Siri Remote.
The Apple A12 Bionic chipset now powers Apple TV 4K. This is a custom-designed Apple silicon that debuted on the iPhone XS and XR series. There are two high-performance and four power-efficient CPU cores and a quad-core GPU in this six-core architecture.
As a result, the Apple TV 4K will now playback 4K HDR video at 60 frames per second. Apple TV 4K users can now AirPlay 4K 60fps Dolby Vision videos taken on their iPhone 12 to the Apple TV 4K.
For the latest edition, Apple is also releasing a new Siri Remote. The previous Apple TV remote was widely panned because it was difficult to say if it was the right way up in the dark due to its symmetrical nature.
Apple has also included a clever color calibration feature that makes use of the iPhone’s sensors. All you’ll need is a Face ID-enabled iPhone running iOS 14.5. Start the Color Balance feature on your iPhone, and then keep the front of your phone within the specified area on the screen. The phase is finished after a few seconds.
With features like Dolby Vision IQ or Intelligent Sensing that automatically tweak settings to fit your environment, or AI tuning that adjusts picture modes depending on what kind of content you’re watching, TV manufacturers are increasingly focusing on picture setting calibration. We’ll have to wait to see how well Apple’s trick works, and its effectiveness will almost certainly vary depending on the capabilities of your television – considering that Apple doesn’t guarantee the screen itself.
We’ve also announced pricing for the Apple TV 4K, which will cost $179 / £169 / AU$249 / ₹18900 for the 32GB model and $199 / £189 / AU$279 / ₹20900 for the 64GB model.
