The Apple TV 4K 32GB variant will be priced at $180 whereas the 64GB variant will feature a price tag of $200.

Prior to today's official announcement, we had heard that Apple was clashing with prominent Hollywood studios over the pricing of 4K content. Apple's promising that Netflix and Amazon Prime's 4K content is coming soon. It's now pretty much standard above a certain size, which means the fourth-gen Apple TV is rapidly starting to show its age. However, the feature can be turned off if you'd prefer not to know.

The Apple 4K TV will be available to order starting September 15, shipping a week later on September 22. Previous reports regarding the new Apple TV said that Apple was having trouble convincing content providers to price 4K media the same as regular HD.

Later this year, Apple will introduce Airplay 2 support, allowing Apple TV to control multiple AirPlay 2-compatible speakers as well as your home theatre speakers. You can stream movies and TV shows from a wide range of services. It may not be as big as bringing Miyamoto out on stage, but this is a flawless partnership for Apple as it struggles to convince people that Apple TV is for gaming. The box supports both Dolby Vision and HDR 10; with this, viewers get to enjoy content that has a greater dynamic range that ordinary television and movies. That's a superior version of HDR, which uses dynamic metadata.

At $US179, it will still be at a premium price relative to competitors, each of which already has models supporting 4K and HDR. Apple will also be adding more live sports channels along with remote access to the Homekit. Apple also explained that if you've purchased eligible movies in HD, they'll automatically be upgraded to 4K HDR for free.

Apple TV was announced to the world on September 2006 - more then ten years ago now - with the working name of iTV (which was eventually dropped due to a certain British broadcaster).

The CPU performance on the Apple TV 4K is now 2x times as that of its predecessor, thanks to the new A10X processor along with the new version of the tvOS.

Indeed, Apple claims it is twice as fast, with four times the graphical processing power.

It's been rumoured, but not confirmed, that there is 3GB RAM on board.

Users can share recent photos and videos from iPhone and iPad, including the best Memories, with friends and family on the biggest screen, with iCloud on Apple TV. Apple further explained how they have renamed their stores into Townsquare and also announced revamped stores in Paris.

As iTunes material can usually be downloaded to your laptop or iOS device (or perhaps internal storage on the Apple TV itself), this potentially reduces the bandwidth requirements a tad.

For now, it has entered partnerships with all of the above to display their HDR and Dolby Vision content as its creators intended, plus Apple will let new sports programming in.

The existing 1080p, 32GB Apple TV continues to be sold at £149/$149.
