Apple has just released its latest Apple TV streaming box — Apple TV 4K. It’s not the first 4K-compatible box from the iPhone-maker, but it can be described as the best. If we talk about the performance, this device can be one of the best products from the iPhone-maker in terms of price as well. So, here’s a review for you:



Apple TV 4K: What’s New In It?

There are plenty of things. First of all, it’s better than the previous model. Moreover, it’s costs less. Better and cheaper is a rare combination, but this device satisfies both requirements. The new model is the third-generation 4K model and it has come much sooner than many expected.

The new model is smaller and lighter than earlier models. The company is offering two versions — Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi and Ethernet.



It has more storage capacity compared to the previous one: the 32GB and 64GB models are now upgraded to 64GB and 128GB models. This is good for gaming enthusiasts.

The new A15 Bionic processor is powering the device. In other words, a humble TV box is now as powerful as the new version of iPhone.

This device has a support for HDR10+ which wasn’t in the previous model, as well as continuing compatibility with 4K, High frame rate HDR, Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision.



Another important change in the devices is the identical Siri Remote now recharges with USB-C, not Lightning.

Apple TV 4K: Design

There’s very little difference in terms of design between the new Apple TV 4K and the old one. It’s little smaller in every direction, but that’s it. The earlier model had the Apple logo followed by the letters “tv” but the new one has simplified things by opting for just the Apple logo on its own.



The company hasn’t changed Apple TV’s design significantly in a very long time. Also, there’s no need for line-of-sight connection since the remote connects by Bluetooth.

Apple TV 4K: Siri Remote

There is no change in the design of Siri Remote except the new charging arrangement — USB-C — instead of Lightning. One things you should note that there’s no USB-C cable included in the packing box.

Interestingly, there are hardly any buttons on board but a highly intuitive interface that makes it easy to do everything you need to.



Scrubbing through video is satisfying as one rotates thumb round the touch-sensitive wheel, though it doesn’t work with every streaming service. There’s a power button which will turn off your TV as well — with one long press — and the Siri button is on the right corner. However, you cannot just say Hey Siri to invoke it. Pressing the button is required.

And, just ask Siri on the remote, “What did she say?” and it will play last 15 seconds the video again with subtitles — the subtitles, however, disappears thereafter automatically. Significantly, reports claim that Siri will be able to recognise individual user voices and that will be a useful upgrade.



Apple TV 4K: Performance

The A15 Bionic processor is made for great power efficiency and apparently uses 30% less electricity than the last Apple TV 4K, which had the A12 Bionic. That was also a powerful processor but nothing like this.

This powerful chip also enhances gaming experience with better and smoother graphics. This smoothness, for instance, also means a better experience when you’re just scrolling through menus on the box.



The addition of HDR10+ is also a plus point with the conditions that your TV must support it. If your TV doesn’t support Dolby Vision, this could make a significant difference to picture quality of compatible content.

Another thing is Quick Media Switching. Assume, if you’re switching channels with different frame rates, a black screen appears. But with Quick Media Switching this should be near-instantaneous.



Apple TV 4K: Conclusion

This is far from the cheapest streaming box on the market, and some rivals, especially the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max, comes for less than half the price. But the simplicity of the sensational Siri Remote, the breadth of games available through Arcade and to buy and the elegance of the Apple interface are enough to put Apple out in front.
