4K HDR Video Is Coming to the 5th Generation Apple TV

Apple executive Eddy Cue said on Tuesday that all major movie studios have signed up to deliver 4K movies through the box.

Apple is apparently also working on the content front and aims at bringing a large collection of movies in 4K HDR to the iTunes.

Apple has announced that it's finally joining in with 2017's TV streamers with the announcement of Apple TV 4K. Even the GPU will be four times faster than the current Apple TV. The larger story here is support for HDR, which I can attest makes a big difference, providing far more vibrant colors than traditional color on TV screens.

The presentation also highlighted the Apple TV 4K's ability to go beyond streaming movies and TV shows. Users will also get a revamped Siri Remote in the package.

Called Apple TV 4K, the new set-top box will be available from 22 September in two storage sizes: 32GB and 64GB. Yes, Apple may be late to the party when it comes to 4K but it sure has some interesting features to offer.

As iTunes material can usually be downloaded to your laptop or iOS device (or perhaps internal storage on the Apple TV itself), this potentially reduces the bandwidth requirements a tad. The existing fourth-generation Apple TV will continue to be available for $149.

Netflix's 4K titles are available now, with those on Amazon Prime Video coming later.

The Apple TV 4K has revamped its entire user interface for the high-resolution format, and the screensavers have been revised to support HDR, Cue added.

During the iPhone launch keynote, Apple shed some light on the future of its Apple TV range.

Alongside the hardware changes, there have been a number of software changes to the Apple TV, which will run on the new tvOS 11 and use the new TV app. Apple sold a mere 1 billion iPhones in 10 years but a new breakthrough is expected to generate more than 27 billion devices in just 3 years, creating a $1.7 trillion market.
