Apple has unveiled a new generation of Apple TV 4K, featuring a new Siri Remote and more. Available in Australia from Friday, April 30th from an RRP of A$249.
The new Apple TV 4K still delivers the best entertainment experience while integrating several Apple services – Apple TV+, Fitness+, Apple Arcade, and more. But that experience has gotten even better with several new features and a new Siri remote, including:
The ability to stream video in a high frame rate HDR of up to 60fps. Meaning video show on iPhone 12 Pro can play in full 60fps Dolby Vision
A new colour balance technology which adjusts the colour balance of the TV using advanced sensors on an iPhone and the Apple TV
A12 Bionic Chip which means Apps run faster, games run smoother, and more
The ability for up to two people to watch a movie or video via their AirPods
Perhaps the most significant and obvious change is the new Siri Remote. It now has a new click pad offering five-way navigation that Apple is promising to be better at accuracy. While still being touch-enabled for directional swipes. Also new to the remote is a power button.
The new Siri Remote is included with the purchase of a new Apple TV 4K. But can be purchased separately for those who own the previous-generation Apple TV 4K – for A$79.
Apple TV 4K can connect to almost all modern TVs that have an HDMI port. Perfect for Apple TV+ and other streaming services such as Disney+, Stan, Netflix, ABC iView, and many more.
