Apple announces brand new Apple TV 4K, discontinues Apple TV HD

The next generation of the Apple TV is here with the 2022 Apple TV 4K that Apple announced today.

What makes this model stand out is that it is running an A15 Bionic chip to create a better and more efficient viewing and user experience. CPU performance on the newest version is now 50 percent faster than last year’s model.

Additionally, Apple has made a slight change with the Siri Remote, changing the charging port from a Lightning port to a USB-C port.

There are two versions of this new Apple TV 4K.

The first one has 64GB of storage and is a Wi-Fi-only model, and starts at $129. Apple’s second version has 128GB of storage and allows for both Wi-Fi and Ethernet for internet connectivity, and starts at $149.

Additionally, Apple has officially discontinued the Apple TV HD, as it is no longer available for purchase on its website. Previously this year, Apple did consider it a “vintage” product.

Customers can put in their pre-orders either of these new Apple TV 4K models starting today. Both will be released on Friday, November 4.
