In September 2017, the Apple TV 4K was introduced. Although it is an excellent tool, there are several data suggesting that Apple can bet on the model updated in 2020, especially after the release of the Apple TV + platform.
As you know, Apple TV is a type of TV box that combines functions of a media player, game console and an app platform that lets you play content from your iOS or macOS device on your TV.
Despite all the benefits that Apple TV offers, its name itself is already causing a lot of confusion (there are several Apple products with the same name), and this can lead to Apple losing it, or at least completely changing it.
This way, the company was not able to introduce a new model for future receivers and betting in conjunction with TV and TV box manufacturers. In fact, the Apple TV app is now available on other Samsung TVs and on the Amazon Fire TV Stick.
In any case, below we gather all the rumors and leaks known so far with the arrival of the new Apple TV in 2020: price, launch date, features, details and much more.
Edit: When will the Apple TV 2020 be released?
Our bet is that Apple will update the Apple TV and release the sixth generation in the not too distant future. Looking at the release dates of previous generations, we can get an idea of when that will be.
- Apple TV (first generation): January 2007
- Apple TV (second generation): September 2010 (approximately 4 years)
- Apple TV (third generation): March 2012 (about 1 and a half years later)
- Apple TV (4th generation): October 2015 (about 3 and a half years later)
- Apple TV (5th generation): September 2017 (approximately 2 years later)
The gap between the introduction of one generation is one greater than the other, so it wouldn't be surprising that Apple took a moment to take on the new model. If done in 2020, the wait would be two years.
Price: How much will the Apple TV 2020 cost?
Although we would like prices to change with the arrival of the new Apple TV generation, it probably won't. In this sense, it is worth looking at current prices to get an idea of how much it will cost.
- Apple TV HD (32 GB): € 159
- Apple TV 4K (32 GB): € 199
- Apple TV 4K (64 GB): € 219
One of the most widespread complaints of Apple TV is its price, and it's not surprising that we're looking at a relatively inexpensive number of competitor products like Amazon Fire TV Stick (€ 39.99) or Google Chromecast (€ 39).
Apple may have decided to market the same cheaper app to compete directly with Amazon and Google. Nevertheless, we think of the future Apple TV Stick It could be some price higher, maybe € 89.
In any case, we think Apple should consider lowering the price of its standard Apple TV, especially now that its users must also pay a monthly subscription of € 4,99 if they want to enjoy the content Apple TV +.
Features: What new features will the Apple TV 2020 bring?
Sync with Siri for AirPods
In the meantime, you can connect your AirPods with your Apple TV and perform an action such as pausing to play with two taps. Now that hands-free Siri has reached newer AirPods, maybe soon you can activate the Apple TV Siri with headphones.
Integration with HomePod
Although there is much to speculate, by 2020 we have finally come to the Apple TV that will be able to integrate many Siri functions from the HomePod. Currently you can use it as your Apple TV speaker, but this feature needs to be upgraded.
Siri on Apple TV
In this case, we would also like Apple to make changes to Siri for Apple TV. With the HomePod, for example, you can offer orders from the other side of the room, while currently with the Apple TV you have to do it remotely.
You will have noticed that the Apple TV management has a few buttons, and that Apple has more than one frequency when it wants its use as simple as possible. In our opinion, in this case, lower buttons mean more difficulty.
Remote control is called Siri Remote because you have to use Siri commands to use it, but in our opinion this is not always the most effective. In addition, i track track It is too small.
Details: What technological change will the Apple TV 2020 have?
A wide drive
With the advent of the Apple TV 4K, we thought Apple would decide to add high-end storage capabilities. Instead, it has continued to introduce 32 GB and 64 GB models, similar to the 4th generation.
In this case, we suspect that Apple will decide to offer the 128 GB model sooner rather than later, or the 256 GB model. However, to be honest, most users probably won't need it since they see the content on to broadcast.
Mac mini – Apple TV
In the future, we can even access the hybrid arrival of the Mac mini and Apple TV. This device will allow you to have a multimedia center in the dining room with all the features of Mac and Apple TV.
Now that the TV app is about to arrive for the Mac, perhaps this is probably as commonplace as ever. In a sense, any Mac – including a Mac mini – can be plugged into your TV and used to watch Apple TV + content and more.
As expected, the Apple TV 4K features a higher processor than the Apple TV HD 4th generation (A10X Fusion chip instead of the A8 chip). With the emergence of Apple Arcade, we think the next model will also need a new one, possibly an A12 chip.
