Apple TV 4K: Technical Specifications
With A12 Bionic, Apple TV 4K now supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) with high frame rates and Dolby Vision Video that plays fast-moving actions at 60 frames per second (fps) more smoothly and appears more lifelike than ever before.
Apple TV works with iPhone and its sensors to improve the picture quality of a television set. Apple TV uses the light sensor in the iPhone to compare color balance. Apple claims that Apple TV automatically adjusts its video output to provide much more accurate colors and improved contrast – without customers ever having to adjust their TV settings.
The all-new Siri remote has click pad controls that offer five-way navigation for better accuracy and is touch-enabled for the quick directional swipes that Apple TV users love. The outer ring of the clickpad supports an intuitive circular gesture that turns it into a jog control.
The new Siri remote also has a power switch that controls power to a TV and another one for muting it. This makes it the only remote control that is needed for television.
