Apple’s long-awaited fourth-generation Apple TV features an A8 processor and 32 to 64GB of storage, along with a touch-based remote control that doubles as a gaming controller. It has a brand new operating system, “tvOS,” which includes deep Siri integration and a full App Store.
Apple debuted the long-awaited fourth-generation Apple TV set-top box at its “Hey Siri” media event on September 9, 2015, giving the world an updated look at Apple’s vision of the ideal television experience.The Apple TV, which connects via HDMI to compatible television sets, focuses on what Apple says is the foundation of a great set-top box: powerful hardware, a modern operating system, a fun and easy user experience, powerful tools for developers to create apps, and a dedicated App Store.Combined, these factors are aimed at expanding the available content on the Apple TV and making it easy for users to sort through that content to find new movies to watch, new TV shows to follow, and new games to play. According to Apple, “Apps are the future of television,” which has led the company to focus on software as much as hardware. The Apple TV includes 2GB RAM and an A8 chip that’s much faster than the A5 in the previous version, allowing the device to support a full App Store with both casual and console-quality games, in addition to a range of apps. It also supports 1080p video at 60 frames per second.
