Apple is working on a more capable Apple TV, while two models are currently available in stores. The new product would be equipped with 4 GB of RAM as well as the A14 processor , which is also found in the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. In theory, we can therefore hope for better fluidity even if tvOS is already rather fast today.
This information comes from Mark Gurman, who also mentioned the case of the Apple Watch Series 8 in the same newsletter . The journalist has been right many times in the past, and offers a paid version of his content with key leaks on the Apple brand’s future projects. Its reliability score is 86.5% over the past few years, according to figures from AppleTrack .
Gaming in focus
According to Gurman, this change in components for the Apple TV could prepare it for new capabilities for video games. With its Apple Arcade offer , the manufacturer provides, for example, dozens of titles with unlimited access for 4.99 euros per month. Google, with Stadia, competes with the Cupertino giant with also availability on mobile and big screen.
In recent years, Apple’s breakthrough in gaming has been greeted with particularly satisfactory financial results . Revenues, however, were down at the start of 2022, with 2.3% less spending on the public compared to the previous year for a total of $12.14 billion.
Availability and prices
The Apple TV of 2022 could come with a new remote control , meanwhile spotted by a curious developer in the iOS 16 beta. It’s unclear whether the bundle with the two items will be more expensive than today but the probability is strong: at Apple, the trend is upwards. The price of the MacBook Air M1 was even increased after the release of its successor a few weeks ago.
See you this fall for the next Apple conference, where the second generation AirPods Pro and the final editions of macOS Ventura or iPadOS 16 should also appear.
