Johannesburg: Talks on Apple TV have been buzzing around for several years, but the company had held back introducing a new model as it wanted to get deals for more content. The latest news is that the Apple is geared up to introduce a new generation Apple TV in few months. It’s also being said that it would also offer developers with a development kit to build apps for the new hardware. The device had not seen a single update from the past three years and it also received a price cut a month back. So now, the company is continuously adding new contents and HBO Now will be included to the line-up in the next month.
Below mentioned are a few significant features of Apple TV:
- Apple TV supports Siri voice input: Apple TV comes with a dedicated app store with the support for third-party software. Along with that, it’s also expected to support Siri voice input and the A8 processor which is being used in iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Pervading it as a most vital service, the company boasts that the device features the on-board storage that exceeds 8 GB space found on the current hardware.
- It supports A8 processor: The robust A8 processor is already being used in iPhone 6 and 6 plus; the processor is so powerful that it’s capable of supporting 4K-resolution videos i.e. the ultra-high definition content. Few services like Netflix and YouTube are already offering contents in 4K resolution and now it’s Apple TV’s turn to hit market at the competitive prices.
- Acts like a Homekit tool: As the device supports Siri voice input, it could also bring some opportunities to control home while making it a kind of Hub. The app store with the support for third –party applications opens up the potential for games on the TV. This officially brings Apple TV into the market of gaming console. No wonder if it stands as a competitor for Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox.
According to some sources, Apple TV is a significant service that everyone would love to use once they get it. It offers a mind blowing viewing experience with lots of other mesmerizing features. So it certainly raises the stakes in the set-top box market which now seems cluttered with differentiated devices.
