The next-generation Apple TV 4K is an entertainment powerhouse, as the Cupertino company touts, boasting some worthwhile upgrades over previous releases.


Chief of which is perhaps the new A15 Bionic chip, which improves the device's performance over the previous generation by up to 50%, upping the responsiveness and making animations and navigation feel faster than before. GPU performance also benefits from a 30% boost to enable smoother gameplay experiences.

The new Apple TV 4K supports HDR10+, along with Dolby Vision, enhancing the visual quality of content across a range of TVs. You'll also be able to enjoy a home theatre experience with Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital 7.1, or Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound for immersive audio.


The package comes with the Siri remote, which features a touch-powered click pad for precise control. The remote also now charges over USB-C.


Apart from this, you get the existing version of tvOS out of the box, letting your new Apple TV 4K seamlessly integrate with your other Apple devices, such as your iPhone or iPad. Later this year, Apple will roll out tvOS 16, the latest version of the software, which will update Siri and make it easier for you to control your Apple TV with your voice.

What's more, the new Apple TV 4K expands your storage options from 32GB of previous generations to either 64GB or 128GB.


Apple said the device will be available soon for a starting price of S$199. Meanwhile, the Siri Remote, which is compatible with all generations of Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD, can be bought separately for S$89.


With the launch of the new Apple TV 4K, Apple could soon phase out the entry-level Apple TV HD, which was first launched in 2015. MacRumors reports that the device is no longer being sold through the company's online store. As of writing, it's still not known whether it's the same for retail. In case you still want an Apple TV HD, you might want to secure one now, though you don't have to spend that much more for the more capable and newer Apple TV 4K.
