In addition to the redesigned iPad and the iPad Pro with the M2 processor, Apple has announced a new and improved version of the Apple TV 4K. The big news with the third-generation Apple TV 4K is that it has a faster A15 Bionic chip (the previous model has the A12) and support for HDR10 Plus. The companion Siri Remote has also been updated, with Apple adding a USB-C port instead of Lightning. The streaming box starts at $129, which is even cheaper than its predecessor, and will be available for purchase in stores on November 4. We have yet to test the new model, but we will soon, so stay tuned for our review.
While the Apple TV 4K won’t be available until November, you can pre-order the streaming device from the Apple Store Now. The streaming device with Wi-Fi starts at $129 and comes with 64GB of storage. For most features and storage space, you will want to get the model with 128GB of storage for $149. It supports Wi-Fi and also has a Gigabit Ethernet port, plus support for the Thread mesh network protocol.
Whichever model you buy, Apple also gives three months of its Apple TV Plus subscription for free.
