Apple TV 4K launched: Specifications and features

Apple announces Apple TV 4K, available September 22 for $179

The updated box, called the Apple TV 4K, has a new processor that's twice as fast as the existing box and four times faster for graphics.

The announcement came today during Apple's special event held at the Steve Jobs theater in Cupertino, CA, along with the unveiling of the new Apple TV 4K.

Additionally, 4K movies will be the same price as HD movie in iTunes, and customers will receive an automatic upgrade to 4K if they bought HD movies. Pre-orders begin on September 15 and shipments start on September 22.

Apple also announced that later this year, it will debut live sports and news on the Apple TV. The TV app supports over 60 services on Apple TV and iOS devices, with more being added all the time.

The Siri remote from the last Apple TV makes a return.

The user interface has been remade in 4K, ensuring it is sharp and crisp for TVs with support for Ultra HD. Thanks to some internal upgrades, it can now push 4K and HDR content out to your TV, assuming your set can handle that kind of high-res stuff. Interestingly, Apple's specs page doesn't mention a USB-C port on the Apple TV 4K, which leads me to wonder how developers are supposed to interact with it.

The Apple TV is the center of your home entertainment system.

As expected Apple announced availability of 4K and HDR-enabled iTunes videos.

Oil prices rise after dollar recovery
The new deal may include OPEC members Libya and Nigeria , which are exempt from the current agreement. The deal aims to curb a glut that has weighed on crude prices for more than three years.

The Apple TV 4K will also have a built-in 4K video scaler to improve the look of HD content so that it looks better on a 4K-resolution TV. Apple's spokesperson also said that 4K content will be available from third parties, including Amazon. The Apple TV works with iPhone and iPad, letting people watch photos and videos from their portable devices on the big screen. The company already spun up shows like Planet of the Apps and Carpool Karaoke, plus has reportedly earmarked $1 billion to spend on shows that are hopefully better than those two.

This year we got a single sign-on mode, plus (for US users) a global search tool to help you find any programme you want.

The black hockey-puckish case of the Apple TV has largely stayed the same over the years and this edition is no different.
