Along with the new iPads, the 2022 Apple TV 4K also arrived after the last generation in 2021 that replaced a model four years ago.
Apple TV 4K 2022 introduces a new chip, the A15 Bionic. It’s the device that actually powers the iPhone 13, 13 Pro, and 14, as well as the iPad mini 6. That of course gives it more power, but also better energy efficiency (Apple talks about 30%), and that’s not entirely overlooked in this one. The period from the end of abundance.
The move from the A12 to the A15, according to Apple, provides faster browsing speed and a more responsive interface. Also, the graphics performance increased by 30% will satisfy the players.
The primary interest of the Apple TV 4K remains watching multimedia content. So this new generation adds HDR10 +, in addition to Dolby Vision and HDR10. For the sound environment we will be able to count on Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital 7.1 or Dolby Digital 5.1.
We clearly find everything that makes the Apple TV strong. The box connects to the entire Apple ecosystem, both apps (Apple Arcade, Apple TV +, Apple Fitness +, Apple Music) and devices via the Thread protocol (Matter Protocol). Enough to manage the home of all connected HomeKit-compatible objects.
Despite these improvements, the price of the 2022 Apple TV 4K is dropping. It is already possible to pre-order it to receive it on November 4, 2022. Two models are available: one Wi-Fi with only 64 GB of memory for € 169 and the second with Ethernet port and 128 GB for € 189.
Last year’s model cost $199 with 32GB of storage, or $219 with 64GB.
