Besides releasing several new iPads that sit on two sides of the price range, Apple unveiled the third generation of its TV box. Unlike the new budget-friendly iPad, the third-gen Apple TV features only a few notable changes, mainly focusing on delivering a better CPU/GPU performance.
The third-generation Apple TV comes with the A15 CPU (a more powerful option than the one Apple uses in the iPad 10 and a more powerful processor than most Android phones have) that delivers faster performance, better efficiency, and HDR10+ support on compatible TVs. Apple says the new Apple TV is 50% faster than the outgoing model in CPU tasks and 30% in GPU performance. In addition to HDR10+, the device supports Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital 7.1, and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.
The new Apple TV is now available for pre-order in two configurations: Apple TV 4K Wi-Fi and Apple TV 4K Wi-Fi + Ethernet. The base model has 64GB of storage and a price tag of $129, while the more expensive variant with a Gigabit port provides 128GB for your media and games for only $20 more—$149. Both variants come with the recently redesigned Siri remote that features a USB-C port.
