Apple TV 4K gets A12 Bionic and redesigned Siri remote

In its Spring Loaded event, Apple announced the next-gen Apple TV 4K, which is now powered by the A12 Bionic chipset and gets a redesigned Siri remote.

A12 Bionic improves the overall performance of the TV with a significant boost in graphics, video decoding and audio processing. The new Apple TV 4K also delivers a higher frame rate HDR video at 60FPS, which will allow users to view videos shot on iPhone 12 Pro via Airplay.

The new-gen Apple TV 4K will be available starting at $179 in US. The new Siri remote, which is compatible with the previous Apple TV 4K and HD, is sold separately for $59. Apple TV HD paired with the new Siri remote is available for $149.

The company is also working with the likes of Red Bull TV and Fox Sports, among others, to bring high frame rate HDR content.

Apple TV also works with iPhone’s sensors to better colour balance, enhance the overall viewing experience, and deliver more accurate colours without accessing the TV’s settings.

The new Siri remote comes in a one-piece aluminium design. It features five-way navigation with gesture control, designed to make it easier to go forward or back when streaming content.

The new remote also gets power and a mute button. Siri voice control on the remote is now available in 16 countries, with Austria, Ireland and New Zealand added to the list.

“With the A12 Bionic and the all-new Siri Remote, Apple TV 4K lets customers enjoy their favourite shows, movies, and more in the highest quality, with simple and intuitive controls,” said Bob Borchers, Apple’s VP of Worldwide Product Marketing.
