Apple TV 4K Preview: Bringing 4K Into Your Home
APPLE TV 4K PREVIEW
Compatible with your network wirelessly or with a wired connection, the latest Apple TV is promising to enhance your routine.
Apple’s digital assistant Siri is no stranger to smart TVs, and she’s naturally accounted for here. Want to switch to another program? Specifically, are looking for your favorite show or film, are you looking for something in a preferred genre or are you hoping to come across a title starring your favorite actor or actress? Simply ask Siri to direct you.
Unsurprisingly, full compatibility with Apple’s services is present. You can stream from iTunes or display images from your iCloud account. One pleasant gesture is Apple’s promise to upgrade your previous purchases. If you bought a 1080p film through iTunes, it may automatically be scaled up to its 4K counterpart. (However, Apple has yet to hash out deals with select publishers, such as Disney.) Moreover, in their effort to help foster this market, films rendered in 4K will be sold at a more affordable price.
A companion app for iPhones and iPads can be used. This unifies your Apple TV experience across all three platforms, meaning if you stop watching a show on your TV, you can pick up your tablet and resume where you left off.
As with the upcoming Apple Watches, you can pre-order an Apple TV 4K on September 15 and pick it up on September 22. $179 will score you 32GB of memory whereas splurging on the $199 model will bestow upon you 64GB of storage. All packages come with the Apple TV 4K, its Siri-powered remote, a Lightning to USB cable and a power cord.
