Apple TV 4K 2022 is now available: here’s what’s new

Apple TV 4K 2022 is now available in stores, and it’s the most powerful Apple TV yet. We tell you what’s new about this Apple TV!

Read on after the ad.

Apple TV 4K 2022: Two models

Apple is releasing the new Apple TV in two different models for the first time. The first model has 64 GB of storage space and costs 169 euros. If you put twenty euros more on the table, you have an Apple TV 4K 2022 with Ethernet connection and more storage space (128 GB). This makes it much cheaper than its predecessor.

Here are six other changes for Apple TV 4K 2022:

1. A15 Bionic Chip: Faster and smoother

The third generation of Apple TV 4K is primarily a hardware improvement. Where the second generation was still equipped with an A12 Bionic chip, the Apple TV 4K 2022 has the A15 Bionic chip.

According to Apple, this chip is much faster than the A12 Bionic chip and mainly provides faster navigation in and between apps. This powerful chip enables Apple TV to handle the latest games from Apple Arcade in the highest resolutions. In short: a very powerful processor that you can definitely get on with for years to come.

2. (Much) more memory

The storage space on the Apple TV 4K 2022 is a big difference with the second generation. The second generation only had 32GB, the third generation has 64GB or 128GB. A big improvement, especially since the more expensive version is still cheaper than the second generation.

In addition, the new Apple TV is equipped with 4GB of RAM, where the second generation had 3GB of RAM.

3. HDR10+ content support

A new addition is also support for HDR10+ content. It is another standard for multi-color video images, like Dolby Vision. The latter was already supported on previous Apple TVs.

4. Siri Remote now with USB-C connection

Apple is sticking with things ahead and has already provided the Siri Remote with a USB-c connection. That way, you can be sure that you can still connect the remote control in a few years, because according to the EU, all new electronic devices must have such a connection in 2024.

Do you often have to search for the remote control at home? Unfortunately, Apple is not yet putting an end to that search: the new Siri Remote does not have a ‘Find My’ function either.

5. Charging? Buy cable separately

An important detail with this new USB-C port: the new Apple TV does not come with a charging cable. To charge the Siri Remote, you need to buy this USB-C cable separately – if you don’t already have it at home. The charging cable can be bought for 25 euros in the Apple Store.

6. New design: thinner and lighter

It may not be noticeable at first glance, but the design has also been changed. Apple TV 4K third generation is much lighter and thinner than the second generation. Apple has been able to give the new Apple TV a more compact design by removing the fan. This was no longer necessary with the new A15 Bionic chip.

Another detail is the logo on Apple TV. Apple has chosen to remove ‘TV’, so now only the Apple logo is visible.

Apple TV Plus

Don’t have an Apple TV Plus subscription yet? Don’t worry: When you buy a new Apple product, you get three months of Apple TV Plus for free. The offer on the streaming service is further supplemented every month, so it is definitely worth trying the service for a few months.
