In a surprising move,for 2022. Physically, the new streamer looks the same as its predecessors, but internally there are some significant changes — plus a welcome price drop.
The 2022 Apple TV 4K is now powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic chip for up to 50% faster CPU performance and up to 30% faster graphics compared to the 2021 model. Apple TV 4K now supports HDR10 Plus, in addition to Dolby Vision, for a more detailed picture.
The base model now offers 64GB of internal storage, up from the previous 32GB, and retails for $129 – down from $179 previously. If you want a wired Ethernet port, something that used to be included in the base Apple TV 4K spec, you’ll have to go for the $149 model, though you’ll also get 128GB of storage for that price.
The Apple TV 4K (2022) is available for pre-order now and starts shipping on November 4th.
